If you are contemplating or dealing with divorce that involves a child, or looking to modify a parental agreement, it is important to understand how child custody and parenting plans work. In some cases, child custody can be amicably determined through agreement and mediation. However, in cases that are more contested, a judge will address custody issues. Often the court will look at several factors to consider what is in the best interest of the child, when it makes a primary custody arrangement. These factors include the strength of the parent-child relationship, incidents of any abuse, neglect or domestic violence, housing and more. The attorneys in the Family and Estate Law Practice Group are knowledgeable and experienced in handling all aspects of custody agreements and parenting plans.

In divorce cases, one spouse may seek spousal support or maintenance. Spousal support or maintenance is based on a number of factors, but typically a court will look to the duration of the marriage, future earnings of both spouses, additional child expenses, and division of marital property.

The attorneys at Langsam Stevens Silver & Hollander LLP are experienced in providing guidance and advice that assists their client with the most reasonable based spousal maintenance plan.
