Looking Out for the Best Interests of Your Children
For the majority of parents who find themselves in need of a family law attorney, the best interest of their children is the primary focus. Often, legal proceedings involving children are highly emotional; at times parties may let emotion cloud their judgment when dealing with child custody, visitation, or child support matters. At the Law Offices of Corrie A. Boulay, our lawyers will help you focus on, and obtain, concrete solutions securing the best for your children.
The most important issue in any child custody and visitation arrangement is to protect the best interest of your children. Our lawyers have negotiated arrangements ranging from joint custody with equal access to each parent to sole custody for one parent. We also help same-sex parents, who may serve as de-facto parents even when no biological link to a child is present, assert their custodial rights.
Maryland law provides for child support to be calculated using a mandatory formula. The Maryland Child Support Guidelines consider each parent’s gross monthly income, the amount of time the children spend with each parent, work related child care costs, the cost of health insurance for the children, and several other less common factors to calculate a monthly child support payment amount.
Our lawyers will use their experience to assist you with establishing a new child support order, or enforcing an order that already exists. Child support may be modified after an order has been entered if there have been significant changes to either parents financial circumstances, or significant changes to either parent’s time spent with the children.
