Choose Child Custody And Support Plans That Work

In many families, children will still spend more time with one parent than the other, but the key point to keep in mind is that every family has the right to design a unique plan that works for them.

The divorce attorneys at the Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, can help you craft a child custody agreement that meets your needs, respects the preferences of both parents, and provides an environment in which your child or children can thrive. However, if the two sides are not able to agree on a custody plan, Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, is more than able to litigate the matter. Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, has successfully litigated scores of custody cases.

What To Include In Your Child Custody Plan

A parenting plan can specify as many or as few details as the parents wish. Decisions to be made include:

  • Parenting time: On what schedule will the child see each parent? Will one parent have primary custody, or will custody be shared evenly? If one parent has primary custody, the other is usually entitled to a visitation schedule to be worked out by both parents.
  • Medical decisions: Does either parent object to any particular medical procedures? Are both parents authorized to make emergency decisions?
  • Religion: Will your children be raised according to a particular faith?

Depending on how parents divide their child-rearing responsibilities, child support payments can be used to compensate for differences in parents' responsibilities and incomes in order to provide financial support for your child or children.

The more details you agree on in your parenting plan, the less conflict you can expect down the road. And if you already have an existing child support arrangement that needs modifications as your child's needs change, we can help with that, too.
