WhitsonLaw PLLC, Child Custody Lawyers Ready to Represent You

Let Our Child Custody Lawyers Help You Determine the Best Parenting Arrangement for Your Children

Guidelines for Parenting Time

Parenting time allows the non-custodial parent to spend meaningful time with the child. Our child custody lawyers can assist you in developing a parenting plan that suits your unique needs. In rare cases where there is a history of child abuse or neglect, supervised parenting time can be requested, or a court may grant "no parenting time."

Changes in Child Support Obligation

Every child deserves support from their parents. At WhitsonLaw PLLC, our dedicated support lawyers can help you determine the amount of child support owed based on statutory requirements. If the standard percentage seems unreasonable or inappropriate, we can help you negotiate an amount that both parents find fair.

Child support obligations may also include the child’s educational expenses, healthcare, and childcare expenses. Our child support lawyers will help you determine these expenses and modify the agreement if necessary.

Ensuring Your Child Support Agreement Meets New York State Standards

Your agreement determining the amount of child support must meet specific technical provisions of the New York Child Support Standards Act. Our child support lawyers will ensure your agreement complies with these provisions to avoid potential legal disputes.

At WhitsonLaw PLLC, we understand that your child's well-being is your primary concern. Our experienced child support lawyers will work with you every step to ensure you achieve the best possible child support arrangements for you and your child.
