Make A Parenting Plan That Works For You
For parents, divorce can be significantly more complicated than it is for couples without children — which is already difficult enough. In addition to dividing assets and debts, spouses with children face the added challenge of ending their marriage while preserving an environment in which their child or children can still grow up happy, healthy and safe.
Divorcing parents may not agree on important questions such as where the children should live, how much time they should spend with each parent and how the financial responsibilities of parenthood should be divided. When these disputes arise, it’s crucial to work toward a resolution that meets your needs, with a compassionate and experienced lawyer on your side. As your attorney, I will be an assertive advocate for your needs and interests and those of your children as well. Using the knowledge and experience I have gained in my legal practice and through earning a master’s degree in social work, I will help you and your children’s other parent design a parenting plan that will help your children thrive.
Compassionate Legal Advice For Parents
Issues that parents facing divorce will need to address include:
- Child custody: They will need to determine how to divide the fundamental rights and responsibilities of raising children, from providing food and shelter to making decisions about medical treatment and religion.
- Visitation: When one parent has primary custody of a child, the other typically has the opportunity to maintain a relationship with the child through scheduled visits. I will help you design a visitation schedule that supports your child’s needs.
- Child support: Financial support from one parent to the other can compensate for differences in parental responsibility, as well as differences in income.
Altogether, these factors add up to what is known as a parenting plan.
As they grow older, some children will act out in ways that violate the law. This situation is difficult for any family, but it can be especially complicated for divorced parents. I have significant experience in juvenile delinquency cases, and I can help you confidently navigate through this challenge.
