Custody, Child Support & Modifications
Divorce is difficult not only for a separating couple, but also for their children facing life-changing events outside of their control. One home becomes two houses and the time they spend with each parent may change. Children do better when they have parents dedicated to making a smooth transition in the residential schedule.
Since 1993, the attorneys at Nunn Vhan & Lang, PLLC, have focused primarily on the practice of family and marital law, including divorce and separation of non-married couples. We recognize that emotional elements cannot be ignored, particularly when it involves the well-being of children, and our attorneys take this into consideration during the process. The goal is to create security for you and your children after the divorce or separation.
Compassionate and Dedicated Everett and Lynnwood Child Support Attorneys
Child support combines legal complexities, mathematical calculations and emotionally charged issues. We help our clients navigate through the process with the help of the child support worksheet governed by our state statute. Simply stated, each parent’s income is entered into an equation, along with other important numbers such as tax withholding, union dues, pension payments and health care premiums. From there, the transfer payment is generated and is included in a detailed order of child support.
Child support is just that: money for the needs of your sons and your daughters. The courts place a high priority in the financial care of children. Our lawyers educate and encourage clients to share that priority. Don’t let money matters turn an uncontested divorce into a bitter dispute, know your rights and responsibilities under the law.
The collaborative law process provides a non-litigious option to resolve disputes outside of the courtroom. Mediation or arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution can play an important role in promoting cooperation. If your child support is going to be modified or adjusted, consider using one of these approaches.
The dust will eventually settle for you, your ex-spouse and your children. Divorce and all the issues related to it are rife with emotion and require compassionate advocacy to help you move on to the next chapter of your life.
