Skillfully Addressing Child Custody and Support Matters
You love your children, and it was or will be difficult to share the news about your divorce. Your life has changed and so has theirs. This is when child custody and support matters must be addressed. The Law Office of Martha McKee offers more than 25 years of experience in the practice of law, and I am here to provide the legal guidance and support you need to navigate this difficult time.
I am a seasoned attorney who assertively advocates for my clients. Because each family is unique, I want clients to understand all of their legal options. When you meet with me, we will discuss topics that include Parenting Agreements, the custody process, your rights as a parent and how child support works, and related professionals that we may decide to use to help your family, among other issues.
Seeking Amicable Solutions In Child Custody Matters
It is always preferable to negotiate an amicable child custody agreement when possible. If both parents are able to negotiate, an Agreement can usually be reached between lawyers or in mediation. Compared to litigation, this method often proves to be faster, less expensive and less stressful. Crucially, it also gives both parents more control over the outcome.
However, you cannot control whether your spouse or co-parent will negotiate. If not, I am prepared to vigorously represent you and your children’s interests in court.
Ensuring Fair and Accurate Child Support
Child support awards are formulaic and based on a number of factors, including the number of children being supported, the income of both parents and some costs associated with the children. Whether you are going to receive child support or are being asked to pay, our job is to ensure that, when negotiating or in Court, we are working with accurate financial information that will lead to a fair, appropriate and sustainable child support award.
