In addition to the legal and emotional stress divorce brings, it can take a financial toll. To help you move forward positively, we offer cost-effective rates and unbundled representation where you decide the specific tasks that you want the firm to handle.
Known as “parental rights and responsibilities” under state law, legal and physical custody are based on what the court considers to be in the best interests of the child. Our firm recognizes that even when a divorce is unfriendly, everyone benefits when parents can work together to raise their sons and daughters. By taking a personal approach to these situations, we develop a thorough understanding of the child’s physical, emotional, social and educational needs. From there, we work tirelessly to create custody arrangements that enable a child to thrive and maintain strong bonds with both parents.
Children should not suffer financial hardship because their parents break up. Vermont law requires parents without primary physical responsibility to send child support payments so they contribute to their children’s needs as they did while living together. Rates are based on a series of factors including the incomes of each parent, the number of nights the noncustodial parent spends with their son or daughter, and costs for health insurance and child care. Our firm makes sure that accurate information is submitted for the calculation and also represents parents during enforcement and modification matters.
