Divorce
We protect your rights,
Simplify the legal process and
Allow you to move forward with your life.
Whether you are ready to file your divorce or separation or need to respond to one right away, we are here to lead you through this most difficult time in your life. Let us worry for you.

We make this experience as painless as possible for you. Plus, we will contact your significant other, or their attorney, for you, so you never have to. We help you get through this.

We have seen too many people make rash life-altering decisions during this time. We have heard too many people tell us they avoided hiring an attorney because of the costs, but that it only ended up costing them so much more in the end - more time, more stress, more money. We are here to help you. Call today to speak with an attorney about what you can do.
Child Support
When life changes, we're here to get you the support you deserve.

Ex-Spouses move on.
Children grow up.
Needs change, support can too.
Whether someone started a new job, began a new relationship or the amount of custodial time has simply changed, you may be entitled to modification or termination of support.

With our extensive business backgrounds, we are trained and practiced in analyzing financial information, which means we know how to apply it to your situation and will advocate your need for modification so you can continue living comfortably and maintain that same lifestyle you were accustom to and deserve.
Child Custody
When circumstances change, custody should too.
Know your rights before you agree to custody divisions.
We can help.
Whether you have full physical or legal custody, joint physical or legal custody, just visitation or a combination thereof, the effects can be dramatic and long term.
Divorce Mediation
Confidential, Affordable, Reliable and Efficient.
Sometimes you don't need a judge to make the right decision.
Not all disputes should be handled in Court.

We understand some problems need to be handled in a private setting, away from the stereotypical relationship counselors and opinion-givers you normally turn to: family members, religious leaders, friends, support groups, therapists, etc. We are not therapists. We do not judge you. We offer a new approach, a real approach, a practical, logical approach focusing on realistic expectations and reasonable outcomes if this went through the Court System.

We provide families, couples, neighbors and friends a unique opportunity to meet with a lawyer outside of Court, in a neutral location, where neither party has the normal control or advantage, to help facilitate a solution. We apply our legal point of view to your problems and offer our experience with seeing these same disputes play again and again in Court to help you reach a faster, cheaper, more favorable resolution.

We manage your dispute, control temper flares and keep all parties focused on the end resolution. We help you reach a mutually acceptable agreement in a confidential setting. And, because costs are generally shared equally between parties, our entire resolution experience is much more affordable than hiring attorneys and going to Court.
Estate Planning
We prepare custom estate planning to fit your needs. Whether it is a basic will or a specialized trust, like a special needs trust or life insurance trust, we will help you get it down quickly so you can have the peace of mind you deserve.
With our recent move a huge success, we have brought on additional attorneys to meet the client's needs faster and more efficiently. Contact us today to get peace of mind tomorrow.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Efficiency and Excellence.

When you hire McCoy|fatula, LLP, you are hiring our firm, as a whole, not just one. You get the minds of multiple attorneys and legal professionals, not just one, who will strategize to provide you the best outcome in your situation.

Within weeks, Mr. Fatula was hired at a small law firm and began representing clients interests in family law matters in Placer, Sacramento and Yolo Counties, where he worked with Mr. McCoy.

The two instantly recognized their legal and business approaches attributes were perfectly complementary to each other and within months began discussions of starting a partnership, reflecting upon their current model, incorporating points that proved successful and addressing and correcting those points that failed.
