What You Don’t Know About Family Law
Because we have such long combined experience, we know certain things about divorce and family law that are not common knowledge. For instance:
Did you know that the parenting time and custody arrangements contained in your initial divorce or custody judgment are likely to stay in place and may be difficult to change in the future?
Once a custodial environment is established, the courts cannot change custody or parenting time in a manner that interferes with this environment unless there is a compelling urgent need to do so. So, it is important to make sure that you are happy with the initial arrangement.
Did you know that child support amounts are based on the annual amount of overnights you spend with your child?
A new formulation for child support recognizes that parties providing substantial care for a child deserve lower child support obligations. However, this formulation also encourages less involved parents to insist on additional overnights in order to gain a reduction in support amounts. Your lawyer should look carefully at the child custody arrangement to prevent this from happening to you.
Did you know that you do not have to move out of the marital residence unless ordered by the court?
Quite often, one or both spouses want to separate immediately upon the filing of a divorce. You may want to leave, or conversely, you may want to your spouse to leave immediately. The law does not provide an automatic right to move out or kick your spouse out of the marital residence upon filing.
