I never married the other parent of my child. Can I still receive child support?

Yes. Marriage is not a requirement when it comes to child support. If paternity is established, you can move forward in requesting payment.

How is child custody determined?

If possible, it is best to reach an agreement on your own. We can help you try to do this. When this can’t happen, a judge will have the final say. They will look at a number of factors, including the relationship between each parent and the child, where the child will go to school, and the ability of each party to provide for the child.

Why do I need an attorney for my family law case?

While it is possible to handle this on your own, it is a huge risk. There are many legal hoops you have to jump through, and without the right attorney at your side, you could be missing out on what you are entitled to. We will act as your strongest advocate throughout the duration of your case.

Do I need a prenuptial agreement?

Although it is not necessary, it is in your best interest. A prenuptial agreement protects both parties, should you ever separate. It is a good way to think clearly and logically, instead of down the road when you may be angry.
