We aggressively and responsively litigate child custody cases.  Often, based upon the facts and circumstances of the case, we may take depositions, work with health and/or behavioral specialists, and conduct background checks.  Generally, we present this information to the Court, to support the best interests of the child.  In addition, we also work with mediators and/or a guardian ad-litems, to resolve areas of disagreement.

Child Support

Often, we represent clients to obtain current and back child support.  Additionally, we represent individuals to defend against unpaid child support claims, including by local or state agencies.  Frequently, this involves providing representation at contempt of court proceedings and other related matters.
