CHILD CUSTODY & SUPPORT
Unfortunately, sometimes parents are unable to find a common ground regarding the custody of their children. The longer this conflict occurs, the more serious and potentially lifelong impact on the children. Seeking the best interest of your child is our priority. Custody involves two things: Conservatorship and Possession.
- Conservatorship (legal custody) deals with each parent’s authority to make decisions about the child’s care and upbringing, including education, religion, medical care, and more.
- Possession (physical custody) deals with where the child will live, how many overnights each parent will have, and other issues. In some cases, the terms of the custody agreement can impact the final child support obligations.

TWLAW™ is dedicated to helping parents with children navigate the highly emotionally process of determining child custody.
Our main priority is to ensure that your children have the financial support they need and deserve.
The amount a parent will be obligated to pay as child support is determined by a specific set of statutory guidelines. These provide a clear structure for determining child support, therefore a court must have compelling reason in order to deviate from them.
Key considerations in determining child support include:
- The income levels of the non-custodial parent
- The number of children
- The needs of each child
- The length of possession with each parent
The information required to calculate accurate child support payments is very precise. If the wrong figures are used at any point in the process, incorrect results can be delivered. Having the representation of an experienced attorney who is familiar with the statutory framework can help to ensure that the correct level of child support is ordered.
CUSTODY MODIFICATIONS & ENFORCEMENT
Our lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of child support laws and understand their relationship to other aspects such as custody or divorce agreements. If the child support amount that is determined by the guidelines does not satisfy the financial needs of your family, we can work to modify the support agreement accordingly. If your financial or custody situation has materially changed, we can modify the agreement to address those changes. Our goal is always to obtain the best possible outcome available in your case.
