When a couple divorces, the process is rarely easy. More often than not,
the dissolution of a marriage will bring out more issues and disagreements
that the splitting couple will need to address prior to completion of
the divorce. Among the most hotly contested debates are usually those
regarding the custody of children. At the time that a couple chooses to
end their marriage, one of the most important decisions to be made is that of
child support. Not only do
fathers, mothers, and
grandparents alike all want to ensure that the best interests of the children continue
to be met, they also want to secure their custodial and
visitation rights. For these reasons, it is crucial to obtain a child custody attorney
in whom you can trust to keep the best interests of both you and your
children during the divorce process.
In order to ensure that your rights as a parent are met, our attorneys
do their best to provide you with the best legal representation possible.
This includes attending to post-divorce issues that may arise such as creating
modifications to child custody agreements, establishing
modifications to visitation rights, as well making
modifications to child support agreements if the need for change arises. Furthermore, the legal team can assist when
enforcement of child support is necessary or when the
paternity of a child needs to be determined.
