Frequently Asked Questions

Can custody agreements be changed?

Yes. But don't go into negotiations thinking you can always change the agreement later. Amending custody agreements can be complicated process. That's why it's always better to work out the best arrangement up front so there are no fights later about who gets custody of the children.

Can visitation agreement be changed?

Yes. But here again, it's much easier if you and your spouse work out a visitation schedule with your children that suits both your schedules. It's also helpful if you can ideally stick to the same schedule. That way, your children will likely become more accustomed to seeing both of you at certain times on certain days.

Is alimony the same as child support?

Child support is a form of alimony, but alimony is more than just child support. Alimony and spousal payments do not have to involve children. Rather, alimony simply refers to payments made by one spouse to the other after a divorce. These payments are made in an effort to ease the financial burden of divorce, especially for the spouse chosen to be the primary care giver for the couple's child or children.

Who has the final say on family law related matters?

Hopefully, you and your spouse will have the final say. If you are represented by us, we would merely be there to guide you, offer suggestions and serve as your legal advocate. However, if you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on certain family matters, a judge might have the final say in an effort to resolve your dispute.

Child support

If you are represented by one of our attorneys, we can work with you and make sure you receive or pay a fair amount of money in order to continue to raise your child. This might sound simple. But deciding what is "fair" can sometimes be a complicated legal process. We have experience handling these cases. We know what to expect, what evidence we need in order to strengthen our case.

So many factors need to be considered when determining the percentage of the non-custodial parent's net monthly revenue for child support - the cost of daycare, travel expenses and more. Make sure you make the most of this opportunity. Call (866) 434-1581 and schedule an appointment today.
