Custody Issues in Divorce

In any divorce where minor children are involved, a detailed parenting plan is required to be part of the process. A parenting plan outlines individual parental responsibility, along with the amount of time the child or children will spend with each parent. Parental responsibility is assumed to be held by both parents, but the court may award ultimate or sole decision making rights to one parent. The court will also have to approve the arrangement regarding the time to be spent with each parent. As the court is bound to act per the best interests of the child or children, having a competent DeLand divorce attorney on your side can make a great difference to the outcome of your case. Presenting convincing arguments is a vital step in influencing the decisions of the court and an experienced attorney can help.

DeLand, Daytona Beach & Orange City Child Support Attorney

At Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have extensive experience representing individuals seeking the best for their children. Along with custody, child support is also an important issue. Child support is almost always granted in cases of divorce or unmarried single parenting. The issue of child support requires a capable child support attorney to help calculate a precise child support amount under the child support guidelines. Although there are specific guidelines within the law regarding the determination of child support, there are still many factors involved in each case that can cause the child support award to vary from the guidelines.

Factors considered include such things as:

  • The number of children involved
  • The net income of both parents
  • Additional support needs of the children or any special needs
  • The percentage of overnight stays spent with each parent

If relevant factors are exaggerated or misrepresented, this may result in an incredibly inflated or drastically undervalued level of support. The possibility of obtaining a fair determination requires thoroughness and precision, as well as a firm grasp of relevant legal procedures, all of which we can offer.
