Q: I need a divorce and I have a year in a half son with the person I got married to.
A: Since there are children involved, I would highly recommend seeking an experienced Family Law attorney to make sure your rights and interests are well represented. Once Child Custody and Child Support arrangements are ordered by the court, they can be difficult and expensive to modify. My position is to always urge parties to try their best to come to an agreement on the issues of their divorce to ensure that the outcomes are as favorable as possible for both parties. If this is not possible, the court will hear cases from either side and make a final judgement on child custody, child support, division of martial assets, and all other matters of the divorce.
