In the event that you cannot agree on a custody arrangement, our child custody and child support attorneys of Florence, SC are ready to go to court and provide effective litigation to represent you and your complete needs. If you believe you are the better person to take charge of your children, then you should make your case the strongest to help protect the best interests of your children.
When parents cannot agree on who should have custody of their minor children, then the court must decide. Both parents should look honestly at their new living situations, available time and other resources, and consider carefully which parent can provide a better home life for their children. Because neither parent automatically has a legal right to custody, the court will consider the best interests of the children. The court may order joint or shared custody.
Spousal support is called alimony. Either spouse may be entitled to monetary support from the other spouse.
Both parents have legal responsibility to provide for their children. A non-custodial parent usually will be required to pay a specified amount of child support to the custodial parent. The court uses the Child Support Guidelines, which is a calculation of support based on the gross income of the parents.
