Whether parents are divorcing or were never married, family law courts expect both parents to contribute to the financial and emotional support of their children. Many factors are considered, including the needs of the children, the income of the parents and custodial arrangements. JGL child support lawyers can help with all aspects of child support, be it initial orders or modifications as necessary.

In the best interest of the children, both parents should have access to them through visitation. Visitation is vitally important throughout the children’s lives, but especially vital to many custody proceedings.
