It is not only the parents who are experiencing the emotions and difficulties of a divorce or custody battle. The children are greatly impacted, as their world is also changing. They also interact with their parents that are emotionally charged and distressed.

When moving forward with a family law case, you need to establish child custody, visitation and child support. You are likely to consider your wants and needs because the divorce process has you feeling defeated. Although it is a taxing and emotional process, it is important to keep the children central in these decisions.

Family law matters

The best interest of the child is the basis for the court when approving or ordering a custody arrangement or a child support order. Thus, it is vital to keep this in mind when negotiating, mediating or litigating your family law matter.

Thus, we take the time to work delicately with our clients, noting that everyone’s experience is unique.

Reaching a resolution

Although it might feel like a lengthy and daunt task, each family law issue brought forth must reach a resolution. Often, child custody is the most contentious issue. Parents may not agree to joint custody, resulting in a battle to obtain the arrangement most suitable for them. In these matters, it is important to bring the focus back to the children, as the court will consider their needs and best interests if the matter goes to court.

Child support is often debated; however, we take the time to ensure our clients understand how it is calculated. We also verify all necessary information has been turned over to confirm the calculations are accurate.

Whether it is through negotiations, mediation, litigation or a combination of these, resolving family law matters is important. It may not be easy or result in an agreement that you originally sought, but it is vital that you fully understand your rights and options throughout the process. A legal professional can guide you through the process and help answer any questions or concerns that might arise along the way.
