Protecting Your Child’s Best Interests Through Child Custody

The lead attorney of The Law Offices of Aimee E. Cain is a certified mediator and has the recognized skill necessary to help you negotiate these issues.

Meeting Your Child’s Needs With Child Support
Many divorcing couples with children have important questions about child support, and your attorney can help you create a plan that is in your child’s best interest. We will work with you to ensure that your child’s needs are fully considered, including medical care, schooling, extracurricular activities and other care – and to reach a fair agreement. Whether negotiating a cooperative arrangement or fighting for your rights when negotiation is ineffective, we will help ensure that your child has the financial support they need.
If your circumstances change or if you don’t agree with the assessment made to calculate child support, it is possible to modify or change these orders. A change in income, a change in your child’s needs or a relocation can all be the reason to modify a child support order, and we can assist you in creating a new arrangement that reflects your current situation.
