Helping you secure a fair child support order
Divorce can be difficult. Even when spouses are onboard with the process, if children are involved this can further complicate dissolution. While it is possible that children understand what is going on and that it is for the best, the fact of the matter is that divorce will alter their life as they know it. The transition from a one-home family to a two-home family can be a big deal. And, while parents seek to meet the emotional needs of their child by developing a suitable child custody arrangement, parents must also consider the child’s financial wellbeing as well.
