How We Can Help

At Montroll, Backus & Oettinger, P.C., we understand the complexity of family law. Our  attorneys are fluent in Vermont’s laws and policies regarding family matters, including divorce, spousal support, child support and custody.


Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences a client can face. While many choose to represent themselves in a divorce, the guidance of an attorney is helpful when there are children or complex property matters involved, or if you choose to file for a divorce based on fault of your spouse. Rob Backus and Mark Oettinger understand the intricacies of divorce proceedings in Vermont and are available to guide you, in trial or mediation, through what is often a challenging time.

Child Support and Custody

Reaching an arrangement that provides the best possible support to your child is absolutely crucial to your child’s wellbeing. Legal custody, physical custody, and child support must be determined, and Montroll, Backus & Oettinger, P.C., will work with you to advocate for your child.
