Divorce And Your Children

For many parents, the greatest concern going into divorce is how their children will be affected or hurt in the process. There are steps you can take as a parent to navigate the divorce well and to minimize the impact the divorce will have on your children.

At Walden & Associates, PLLC, our family law attorneys equip parents with the information they need to make the best possible decisions for their children. Our legal guidance is tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of each family we represent, engineered to help them achieve a stable and healthy “new normal” following divorce.

Here are some basic things you need to know about divorce and your children:

Custody and visitation — The time you spend with your children is precious. It is in the best interests of the child to have as much time as possible with both parents. An attorney who knows what the courts are looking for can help you create an innovative approach to parenting time that optimizes the amount of time both parents have with the children.

Our firm will help you understand how basic factors and family dynamics can be addressed as you are creating a custody plan. Not only does an understanding of this process help provide a quick resolution, it also helps both parents understand how co-parenting will work following the divorce.

Child support — These support payments are paid to the primary custodial parent by the non-custodial parent. The amount required is based on a formula that factors income, time spent with the children and the needs of the child.

Our attorneys are mindful of clients’ bottom lines, as well as the needs of the child, and help parents navigate to a fair child support decree that will provide for the child’s needs without bankrupting the supporting parent.

Relocation — Should you or your former spouse need to move from the area, you will likely need to seek a modification to the existing decrees. Come back to us and allow us to put together a strategy for seeking the court decree that you need to accommodate life’s changes.

We understand that you want to make the best possible decisions for your child. Our lawyers are committed to providing you with the facts and information you need. For a consultation, call our law offices to set up a time to discuss your situation and how we can help.
