Legal help with child custody and child support

Last week on this blog we discussed a case where a non-biological father was ordered to continue paying child support because he had paid it for a significant period of time knowing that he was not the child's biological father. Although family law issues may seem pretty straightforward, they can actually be fraught with complexities. When it comes to child custody and child support, it is crucial that parents understand their legal rights and how best to protect them, as failing to do so could result in unwanted consequences.

With regard to child support, depending on which side of the fence you fall on, you may want to establish payment, enforce an existing order, or seek a modification to a previously made child support agreement. You may need to know about paternity issues, how to utilize the legal system to garnish wages, or demonstrate that changed circumstances have made an existing child support obligation untenable.

When it comes to child custody, you may want to seek sole custody or reduce a noncustodial parent's visitation. Here, you will need to know how the courts assess the best interests of the child and how to present evidence that shows that your position supports it.

There are many ways to approach these family law issues, but not every strategy is right for a given set of circumstances. This is why it might be best for you to obtain a customized approach from a law firm that knows how to make compelling legal arguments that are supported by the facts and the law. At Kaspar& Lugar, our legal team is dedicated to helping parents find a resolution to their issues that leaves them and their children in a better position. Whether that means acquiring custody or modifying child support, we work with our clients to ensure that their voice is heard by the court and is given the weight it deserves.
