What You Need to Know About Child Custody and Child Support
Our Durham, NC Attorney Puts Experience On Your Side
The Important Factors of Support and Custody Agreements
As with all aspects of our family law and divorce practice, we work to open the lines of communication and find collaborative resolutions wherever possible. We know that few parents want to pay the expense of lengthy litigation or drag their children into contentious and painful arguments. We also recognize, however, that sometimes it is necessary to fight to make sure your rights are fully protected.
Attorney Kathy Richardson has helped clients across the city and across the region strike the right balance between negotiation, compromise and litigation. We work with you every step of the way to resolve issues of:
- Child Custody: Many factors can go into custody and visitation decisions, including the time, resources and ability each parent can contribute to a supportive environment. The best solution is often the one you create for yourselves, but when your parental rights are at risk we will fight aggressively to protect your relationship with your child. Whether you are involved in divorce, or you have a child outside of marriage, we work to help you build the right parenting arrangement.
- Child Support: Largely defined by a statute mandated child support calculation, there is relatively little room for negotiation on the final responsibilities of each parent. It is, however, very important to work with counsel that can make sure the calculation is properly handled, or else you could end up with a larger support burden than is equitable.
At the Richardson Law Firm we also work with clients in both post-divorce modifications of support agreements and agreement enforcement issues.
