Divorce With Children Can Be Complex

At the firm of Brannen & Walker, Attorneys at Law, we have extensive experience guiding clients through the full range of family law matters. While our office is in Concord, we are comfortable helping clients in communities throughout North Carolina who are struggling through child custody and child support matters.

Child Custody

In recent years, you have likely heard many terms used to describe custody. Legal custody, joint custody, physical custody, visitation, parenting time, parenting plans — all of these phrases and terms are used to describe the time spent and decision-making responsibilities that each parent has with the child.

Numerous factors go into determining custody. For example, factors such as income, stability, possession of the family home, support structure and the existing relationship the child has with each parent can help the court determine an effective strategy. With an experienced lawyer on your side, we can be sure that your needs and your best interests are not forgotten.

Child Support

Determination of child support is largely driven by a numeric calculation. The main factors are income and time spent with the child, but several other factors must be addressed, including:

  • Medical and dental insurance premiums
  • Child care costs
  • Education and extracurricular activity costs
  • Costs associated with special needs

It is crucial that all of these variables are addressed through the determination of child support. While it is true that child support payments can be modified through the legal system, it is best to accurately determine the amount at the start. By working with an experienced lawyer, you can rest assured that your situation will never be overlooked.
