Family Law Matters

Custody

Most parents going through a divorce agree that their children are their primary concern. They want to make sure their kids have happy, stable homes while maintaining a positive relationship with both parents. The problem is that in many cases the parents disagree about what is best. Most of the time, both parents truly believe that their position what is best for the children. Having an attorney that is not emotionally involved in your case can be critical to help negotiate the terms of a custody order without the emotions that are often counter productive.

Support

Other than custody issues, nothing can create more stress in a divorce like support issues. Whether you are dealing with child support or spousal support, it is critical that you get an order that is accurate. Although the system is intended to be “plug and play”…IT IS NOT. Support orders can fluctuate dramatically by changing one or two settings on the support calculators. Judges and attorneys may intentionally impute income that you never received and will never receive in the future. Similarly, your year-to-date income is often inaccurate but that is the most frequently used method of calculating income. These are issues that pro per clients generally miss at the hearing because they are upset about the dollar amount and not paying attention to the numbers used to arrive at that amount. In addition, they may not understand the basis for imputation of income or the arguments against it.

Let us advocate for your support needs. Let us ensure that your support calculations are correct and have been maximized.
