Child Custody and Parenting Time
Child custody and parenting time (the amount of time spent with each parent) are often determined by the courts and place a great deal of emphasis on the best interests of the child. While a parent can seek sole physical and legal custody of the child, it is not always best to see that this is granted. Whether you are seeking sole custody, joint custody or visitation rights, Mr. Kudela can assist you in constructing your argument for the type of custody you are seeking.
In Michigan, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that follow a specific formula. This formula uses certain numbers, such as the number of children a person or couple has, the income of both parents, any regular expenses for the children, and other pertinent numbers, in order to reach an amount of child support that is affordable for the paying parent and greatly assists the receiving parent with the child. Though the guidelines are set by statute, courts often take into consideration specific factors that may warrant deviation from the guidelines and formula.
Modification and Enforcement
In addition to handling initial child custody and child support matters, Mr. Kudela can also assist clients in seeking the modification or enforcement of child support and child custody. These are issues that often require court intervention and having a knowledgeable lawyer on your side can be very beneficial.
