When you aren’t in a relationship with your child’s other parent, you may have a child custody and support order. You must ensure that you know what this order requires of you. As we discussed in our previous blog post, uninsured medical expenses are often a consideration in these cases. Knowing what you are responsible for now can help save you trouble in the future.
We know that you might have some questions about exactly what the order means. We can help you get the answers to those questions. If you find that you haven’t been following the order or that your ex hasn’t, we can help you explore the ways that you might be able to remedy the situation.
One thing is always true: If the order for custody or support needs to be changed, you should take steps to have it modified as soon as you learn of the need. This is the case if the custodial parent wants to move with the child or if the support amount needs to be changed.
When you are going through a child custody or support case, it is easy to get sidetracked and forget that your child should be the focus. We can help you keep the focus on your child so that you can get everything handled in the most appropriate manner possible.
We know that dealing with your ex might not always be easy, but it is something that is likely going to continue into the foreseeable future since you have a child together. We can help you learn how you might be able to make this as painless as possible by getting a solid child custody and support order.
