Child Custody

The primary or "polestar" consideration in all custody matters is the best interests of the child or children. The courts focus on their welfare. We encourage our clients to do the same. Children are entitled to continuing relationships with both of their parents, provided that abuse or neglect is not an issue.

If you and your spouse cannot come up with an agreement between the two of you, then your case will be litigated and the courts will decide the custody, visitation and support issues. We properly prepare for this litigation and assess the facts in light of the "Albright" child custody factors.

Child Support

Child support is determined by statutes. Income and expenses are factored into a "calculator" to come up with an amount for the noncustodial parent to pay the custodial parent. However, the set formulas do not account for a self-employed spouse or business owner from hiding assets.

With the help of financial experts, we get to the facts and ensure that our clients pay and receive the proper amount of support for their children.
