Determining the amount of child support can be difficult in certain circumstances. If the obligor owns a business, he or she may have control over how money flows into personal accounts, W-2 forms and tax returns. This makes is possible to manipulate income. When the obligor is paid commission and bonuses, earnings may vary and determining child support can be a tough task. At the law offices of Rebecca Martin, we do a detailed and thorough investigation to determine the accurate amount of earnings for our clients.

Allegations of child abuse may also affect child custody. These allegations may range from physical abuse, verbal abuse or poor parenting. Often, other professionals, such as social workers and therapists, may be involved in the matter. At the law offices of Rebecca Martin, we help our clients navigate these challenging matters.

Special needs children may have extra expenses like special schools, medications, transportation and doctor’s visits. Our goal is to ensure that the needs of the child are fully met when it comes extra circumstances surrounding child custody and child support.

Difficulties with relocation can affect child custody. It’s not uncommon for one spouse to remarry or relocated after a divorce. This issue is complex as it creates a host of concerns regarding jurisdictional issues and parent involvement with children.

Whether the relocation is uncontested or contested, we can help you in modifying your custody and parenting time.
