Setting Up Appropriate Child Custody Arrangements

In any divorce case involving children — or any paternity case — one of the court's most important responsibilities is to determine what will happen to the children. Legally, child custody decisions must be based on the best interests of the child.

Depending on the facts of each case, it may be in the best interests of the child for both parents to have joint custody or for one parent to have custody.

When both parents have joint physical custody, parenting time is typically divided up in a parenting plan that also addresses each parent's role in making decisions affecting the child.

Our firm aggressively pursues the custody arrangements that our clients believe are in their children's best interests. We take a significant number of cases to trial in order to pursue fair results in what can often be complex and difficult cases.

Pursuing Fair and Accurate Child Support Calculations

In Massachusetts, as in most other states, the child support guidelines are primarily based on each parent's income, share of parenting time, and number of children. In unique circumstances, judges may deviate from the standard formula for calculating child support.

Our lawyers are prepared to deal with all potential complications involving child support, including the impact of child custody on support and the calculation of income for parents who do not earn regular salaries. Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your case.
