Divorce comes at a stage in life where you no longer wish to be married and have decided to separate from your spouse. Divorces have many factors that need to be taken into consideration, such as property, children, spousal and child support, access, and custody.
Deciding where your children will live, who will see them, and who will make decisions about their upbringing are some of the most significant and difficult choices you will have to make.

At Kurie Law Group, our role is to help you make those decisions in a cooperative, fruitful manner where you put the needs of your children first.
Children have a legal right to child support. Usually, the parent that spends the least amount of time with the child pays child support to the parent who is the primary caregiver of the child most of the time. It is used to help cover the costs of caring for the child.
Even if your child spends an equal amount of time with each parent, the parent with the higher income may still have to pay some child support.
There are other factors that can change the amount of child support a judge might order. For example:
- Special or extraordinary expenses, like daycare and medical expenses
- Whether the parenting arrangement is for shared custody or split custody
- Financial difficulties or hardships that make it very hard for the payor parent to provide child support
