Child custody involves legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to decision-making authority regarding the children's education, religious upbringing, after-school activities, health care and other issues. Physical custody refers to where the children live. Parenting time arrangements are as unique and varied as the families we serve. We strive to arrive at the visitation and parenting time agreements that allow you and your children to spend ample time together.
Child support payments are determined by mandatory child support guidelines. Factors that are considered in the calculation include:
- Each parent's income
- Number of children
- Number of overnight visits
- Children from a previous marriage or relationship
- Health care costs
- Any "special" costs for health care, education or other expenses
It is possible to deviate from the guidelines with help from a skilled attorney.
Our law firm focuses on protecting your rights as a parent, protecting the best interests of your children and arriving at fair, reasonable child custody and support agreements.
