Child Custody

Child custody can be a very contentious issue to settle. Every parent wants to protect his or her relationship with his or her child. Having skilled legal representation can help ensure that you are able to preserve and protect the time you get to spend with your child and the role you play in his or her life.

When the issue of child custody is being determined, the court will look to serve the best interests of the child.

Child custody consists of two components:

  • Physical custody — means the routine daily care and control, as well as the residence of the child.
  • Legal custody — means the right to determine the child's upbringing, including education, health care, and religious training.

Parenting time or visitation means the time a parent spends with a child regardless of the custodial designation regarding the child.

Child Support and Spousal Maintenance

Determining appropriate levels of child and spousal support can be crucial, whether it is part of a divorce or as a stand-alone child support case. When support levels are set too high, the person who is paying can face serious economic distress. When support levels are set too low, the ex-spouse or child may be unable to make ends meet. An experienced attorney is needed to set support at the proper amount.

Spousal Support/Alimony/Spousal Maintenance

Determining whether spousal support is appropriate and, if so, what amount and for how long is based on a number of factors including the length of the marriage and each spouse's income and expenses. Spousal support can be either permanent or rehabilitative. A permanent award is ongoing while a rehabilitative amount is awarded for a period of time. A common instance of rehabilitative spousal support includes an award that helps an ex-spouse secure training or education for a period of time so that he or she can be financially independent.
