Child Custody, Visitation and Child Support

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.

Child Support

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.

I worked with Alicia and she was always quick, attentive and clear in her communication. I have also consulted with her on going and she continues to provide the same service for additional family matters.

If it wasn’t bad enough to have to hire a divorce lawyer, the Law Offices of Corrie A. Boulay, LLC, came to my rescue. I was, and still am, very impressed with my attorney, Alicia Smollon. Her skills and knowledge regarding the handling of my divorce was extraordinaire. She’s attentive, professional and has a way of making you feel more at ease when discussing sensitive issues. She has been responsive to my emails, as well as all my concerns.
