child custody & support Archives

You might need help to petition for child custody modifications

Negotiating child custody and establishing parenting plans in a divorce are emotional processes. Although the statutes that govern child custody are complicated, a California court will always make decisions that are in the best interests of a child. While parents in an amicable divorce are free to negotiate child custody arrangements and draft parenting plans, circumstances may change, and you may find that the existing child custody arrangements are no longer in your child's best interests.

Why do child support orders change?

Child support orders are binding, meaning that people have to make the full payments, on time, or risk legal penalties. This is true even when they have other bills to pay and may want to use the money for something else -- even something as necessary as paying the mortgage on time.
