These matters are mandatory items to be negotiated during the divorce, and it’s our experience that the judge really wants to see you and your spouse work together to achieve a productive agreement about custody, visitation, and child support.
If you can’t reach an agreement, or if your former spouse disregards provisions of the agreement, then you’ll have to go to family court to work these matters through.
In especially difficult cases, expert witnesses may be required, and your child may be assigned a Law Guardian to represent his or her interests as you and your former spouse try to come to an agreement.
It’s best for everyone involved if you can avoid that outcome.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help negotiate the best possible terms for your child custody, support, and visitation agreements, while keeping things productive and forward-looking.
