Child Custody Is Important to Consider
Child custody and child support go hand in hand. Child custody consists of physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody refers to where the child lives. Legal custody refers to the parent who makes decisions regarding school, religion, and non-emergency medical treatment. It is common for both parents to share legal custody. Generally, parents are not allowed to prohibit the other parent from spending time with the children. Parental custody is important to consider, because it is part of the formula the courts use to determine child support payments.
Sadly, it is often the case that one spouse will withhold or hide income, purposely reduce income, or even close down a business. If your divorcing spouse is not forthcoming regarding assets and income, count on an attorney from the Law Offices of Robert S. Ackrich for representation.
