Protect Your Own Interests In Family Court
Divorce can have a huge impact on your family – and not purely emotional. Your financial situation will probably change, and that change could be huge. Depending on your case, you may be eligible to either pay or receive financial support to or from your past partner. This can be for your own support or that of your children. How will you know what to expect and what to ask for?
Having a skilled family law attorney on your side is crucial. My name is Angela Cooper. I am committed to looking out for my clients, whether in court or in negotiations with the other party. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, I am here to protect your interests.
Facing Child Support
The amount of child support is often determined by factors such as:
- The parents' individual income levels and jobs
- Child-rearing expenses, including child care, school costs and day-to-day living expenses.
In general, the parent with whom the children live receives payment, and the other parent supplies it.
Alimony is based primarily on one spouse's need, in relation to the other spouse's ability to pay. Many other factors are also considered in determining the type and amount of alimony, including, but not limited to, the length of marriage, the contributions of spouses to the marriage and the standard of living during the marriage.
