Children do best when their parents can be respectful of one another. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can often put aside their differences and focus on a topic on which they tend to agree — the importance of their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Our skilled negotiators can guide the process toward equitable solutions that save time and money.
Sometimes trial is necessary to obtain the financial support your child deserves. Our attorneys meticulously prepare for litigation and are unrelenting as we fight for your child’s right to a financially stable upbringing. If your child’s other parent tries to evade crucial financial obligations, Jacqueline Chin Quee, Esq. can compel the enforcement of your child support order. However, judges understand that a lost job or serious injury can render a parent unable to pay child support. When your circumstances change, we can petition the court for a modification to the support order.
When it comes to your child’s financial well-being, securing the services of a committed and knowledgeable attorney is crucial to achieving a positive outcome in a child support case.
