Concord Child Custody & Child Support

Nothing stabs at the heart of a parent more than the possibility of losing the companionship of their child. It is one of the most emotionally challenging and legally complex issues that can arise in a family law case. At the Law Offices of Aimee E. Cain, clients can expect compassionate, effective representation in both child support and child custody matters.

Child Custody

The thought of not being able to see your child everyday is emotionally devastating. Child custody disputes are often riddled with conflict, which is why a Concord child custody law firm is essential to ensuring that your relationship with your child, and the other parent, is not irreparably damaged.

North Carolina courts, recognizing the inherent tension in custody cases, allow for a parenting coordinator to be appointed in high conflict custody matters. The parenting coordinator is a neutral third party to whom parents can turn when disputes arise relating to their children - a far more expeditious and cost efficient option than continually going into court.

In determining whether a custody dispute is high conflict, thereby warranting the appointment of a parenting coordinator, the court considers:

  • The extent of litigation in the case
  • Whether there is any verbal abuse, anger and distrust
  • If there has been any physical aggression or threats of such aggression
  • Any difficulties the parents have communicating about and cooperating in the case
  • Other conditions the court, in its discretion, finds relevant

The role of the parenting coordinator is two-fold. First, they are there to help the parents reach a successful resolution to the conflict by agreement between themselves. Second, they may also be authorized by the court to make recommendations, which are binding on the parents in the event they are unable to reach an agreement. A parenting coordinator, however, cannot change a court order, but they may help the parents implement strategies consistent it.

Child Support

In North Carolina, child support is determined by taking into account the parties gross income together with certain credits for health insurance and work-related childcare. Anyone involved in a child support case should seek legal advice early and often. The court will not protect you if you lose your job or make less money than when child support was awarded unless you file a motion to modify the amount. It is important for custodial and non-custodial parents alike to seek the advice of a Concord child support attorney to ensure their rights, and the rights of their children, are protected.
