Legal Decision- Making (Custody)
Legal decision-making, commonly called custody, is the legal right and responsibility of parents to make non-emergency decisions on behalf of their children. This includes decisions about education, health care, religious training, and personal care. During the process, we'll make sure that this responsibility is shared equitably and safely between the two parties whenever possible.
Raising a child can be quite an expensive endeavor, especially as a single parent. If you find that the other parent is refusing to pay their share, we can help you get the support your child deserves. We'll establish the legal amount that the other party should be paying and if necessary, bring your delinquent partner to court and ensure that they pay their share of child support or face the legal consequences.
Modification of Orders
The court strives to ensure that both parents equally share the responsibility of parenting. Sometimes, court orders affecting legal decision-making, parenting time, and child support must be changed to reflect changes in life circumstances, such as a new job or a move. If this occurs, we'll help you explore your options and seek a fair, equitable modification.
