Committed Child Support And Child Custody Lawyer
One of the challenges when spouses divorce is which parent will have custody of the children if there are kids involved in the dissolved marriage. Child custody is a very sensitive issue to handle under family law. It is not just your own needs to be considered, but the best interests of the children as well. At the Law Office of James T. Fletcher, I have helped parents work out support and custody agreements for 40 years.
What To Expect In These Matters
When the court grants one of the parents child custody, both parents are still responsible for catering to the needs of their child. Under the child support law, the court usually mandates the non-custodial parent to pay child support.
Factors that are taken into consideration when deciding the amount of child support include the needs of the child, the income of both parents, the parents’ existing obligations and debts. When the non-custodial parent refuses to pay the mandated child support, another court proceeding may be necessary to enforce compliance with the court ruling.
