Guiding You Through The Divorce Process

Divorce is difficult even when couples are in agreement on most of the major issues. Although this is a tumultuous time, it is important to get guidance from someone who can help make the path going forward appear a little brighter.

We are Farmington Valley-based family law attorneys with extensive experience in marriage dissolution. We can help explore your options and determine the divorce process that is the best way to help you achieve a successful resolution.

Skilled Representation In All Divorce-Related Matters

At The Law Offices of Donna L. Buttler, LLC, we provide supportive legal counsel designed to help you reach your goals in all areas of divorce, including:

Divorce involving substantial assets: There are any number of factors that may impact a divorce proceeding, but cases involving substantial assets are particularly complex. If you own multiple homes, are a business owner, or have numerous stocks and other financial assets, we can help protect your interests while working toward an equitable division of property.

Dividing property and debt: When it comes to property division, the desire is to reach an agreement that is fair and equitable. It is important to keep in mind that equitable does not necessarily mean equal. It is also important to remember that debt is divisible as well.

Parenting plans and child custody: Custody matters can generate much anxiety and are often the most contentious aspect of any divorce case. We will work hard to help you reach a child custody agreement while keeping the best interests of your child front and center during the entire process.

Support and alimony: Spousal maintenance is not guaranteed in Connecticut. Whether you are seeking alimony or are being asked to make spousal support payments, we can advocate strongly on your behalf. Our firm also handles issues related to child support.

Military divorce cases: When one or both parties to a divorce are members of the armed services, a number of special considerations must be taken into account, including where to file the action and how to properly divide military pensions and other assets. Having experienced legal help in your corner is essential to a successful resolution.

Smart, experienced and confident”

“I felt comfortable at the first meeting. Her experience and knowledge were obvious. Donna was my no nonsense advocate.”


“Attorney Buttler successfully brought to complete and final closure a very lengthy and complex family court case that I mistakenly thought had been “closed” many years ago (by a different attorney). I am extremely grateful to Donna for her expert knowledge, skills and guidance that she brought to bear on my behalf to accomplish what I was starting to think was impossible; namely, making sure I would never find myself back in Family court again! Thank you, Donna!”


“I worked with Donna on a difficult divorce settlement adjustment over a 6 month period of time and she was able to structure a revised agreement that at times I didn’t believe was going to be possible to obtain. She was able to accomplish a task that my previous attorney wasn’t able to. She was professional in her presentations along with being creative in thought to broker a deal. Communication took place day/night and sometimes even on weekends. If you are looking for someone that is diligent on your behalf I would highly recommend reaching out to her”


“Donna Buttler represented me in a high conflict divorce. Throughout the divorce process she demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and ethics. Donna Buttler is a knowledgeable, experienced, confident, and determined attorney. She fiercely fought for my interests and the outcome exceeded all expectations. I could not have been happier with the terms of my separation agreement. Donna brought in an outstanding team of professionals, including a psychologist and financial advisor that contributed in solving the complicated issues of my divorce. If you are looking for a family law attorney do not hesitate to retain Donna Buttler. She will not disappoint you!”
