We’ll Fight to Protect Your Child’s Best Interests
Child Custody: In cases that involve abuse or one parent who is deemed unfit to care for their children, one parent can be awarded sole custody. In most cases, however, courts opt to grant joint custody to both parents. In these situations, one parent will be awarded primary custody, which means the child will primarily live with them and will be on a visitation schedule with the other parent.
A custody lawyer can help you determine and/or negotiate an agreement that works for both parties and keeps the child’s best interests prioritized. Tim can also represent you in court if there is a dispute that cannot be resolved through negotiations.
Child Support: Both parents are legally responsible for supporting their children financially. The custodial parent (the parent who is awarded primary custody) may request court-ordered child support payments from the non-custodial parent. The payment amount is based on the gross income of each parent, the child’s specific needs, and other related factors.
A child support lawyer can assist you in determining an appropriate agreement whether you are requesting payments or you are being requested to pay child support.
