Child Custody Information

Child custody issues are never easy and visitation and monetary support are often a primary concern of individuals going through a divorce. We have extensive experience in child custody, visitation and child support issues with extra care taken to determine the best possible outcome for the child(ren) and their parents.

Child Visitation Information

Child visitation law governs the rights of non-custodial parents to spend time with their child. Our goal is to work together to amicably decide what that visitation should be and create a plan for life after divorce. This is best done with the cooperation of all parties involved so that the parent’s schedules are taken into consideration along with what is best for the child(ren).

The parent that has custody will generally have more influence over what is considered "reasonable visitation" in terms of times and durations. Our role is to facilitate communication so that visitation can be set in a rational manner with the child’s best interest at heart. If that is not possible, we will advise you on requesting a fixed visitation schedule instead to minimize conflict and upset in your child(ren)’s life.

Child Support Information

Child support is a fundamental right for children that few people would argue against. However, in instances where a parent is not providing support, we can assist you with determining what measures can be taken to enforce a child support order.
