Couples revel in the joy of welcoming a new baby into their family, but it’s not always enough to keep a marriage together. Children add great joy to a family, but having kids can take its toll on couples who are already on shaky ground with one another. The demands of parenthood, the lack of time alone couples are able to find, the financial strain of kids, and their job stress often combine and causes marriages to implode. When couples in San Jose make the decision to divorce, it’s often a difficult decision to come to.
One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is the issue of child custody. What’s best for the kids? Which parent is able to keep their kid’s lives as normal as possible without disrupting their routine and their lives so much? Who wants the kids more? Does one parent travel for work? Are there any allegations of abuse in the household? Can our San Jose child custody lawyers help you?
A lot goes into determining child custody and subsequent child support, which is why you need our help. We are experienced San Jose child support lawyers who know just how difficult this situation is, and we work that much harder to ensure it’s as stress-free as possible for our clients.
Calculating Child Support
When you make the decision to divorce, it’s always best if you and your spouse can come up with an agreement that works for you both so you don’t need our San Jose child custody lawyers to determine custody. Figuring out who is the primary caregiver is important, and figuring out who is able to get the kids to and from their respective schools and activities is another helpful tool. If one of you travels for work, the other parent might get more time with the kids. Agreeing on something is going to make it all more enjoyable, and it’s much more amicable when this occurs.
Based on the decisions you make as a family regarding your child custody agreement, child support is then determined. If you cannot come up with a satisfactory custody agreement on your own, we do it for you with the help of the court. We take into consideration who does the bulk of the child-rearing, the life the kids are accustomed to right now, and we help figure out what is in the best interests of the kids.
Calculating the cost of child support is done when the custody arrangement is determined based on who has the kids the most as well as how much income each parent has. From substance abuse to stay-at-home parents to one parent making the decision not to work to get more money from the other, we’ve dealt with every imaginable child support situation. It’s what makes us so good at what we do.
If you’re in the process of a divorce whether it’s amicable or not, we can help you find a solution to your child custody and support issues. Our team of experienced San Jose child custody lawyers is on hand to help you come up with an agreement, to handle whatever issues come your way, and to ensure you’re paying and/or receiving a fair amount of child support for your own children.
