Experienced, Compassionate Representation In Custody, Support And Paternity Matters
Matters impacting minor children are of primary concern in divorce. If you and your spouse agree on where your children will live, how they will be educated, guidance for their spiritual growth, and who will cover their medical and insurance costs, a family court judge will not have to make those decisions for you.
However, parents frequently disagree on child custody arrangements. At Oney + Kim Family Law, PLLC, we will help you sort through the complex and sometimes stressful issues regarding your children, including:
- Child custody issues — Establishing legal and physical custody in the best interests of your children
- Parenting plan disputes
- Child support — Both parents must financially support their children
- Modifications of court orders — Significantly changing family dynamics can mean a revised court order is necessary
- Domestic violence — Protecting yourself and your children from abuse
When your circumstances are stressful, confusing or changing, we are here to provide legal advocacy tailored to meet your family’s legal needs at an affordable rate.
Establishing Paternity For Unmarried Parents
Some mothers do not want their child’s father involved in parenting. However, a father has a right to a healthy relationship with his child as long as he is not a danger. He also has a duty to financially support his child. Children often do better overall with access to both parents.
Are you a single parent? Establishing your child’s paternity is not automatic. A father may establish paternity to secure a custody and visitation arrangement with the child. A mother can bring a paternity action to get financial support for her child. The state may also bring an action for paternity if the child’s mother is collecting benefits from the state.
