Representation for child custody and visitation is necessary in these three situations:
(1) you want to have an enforceable court order that states who has primary custody, when each parent may see the child, how decisions regarding the child’s education, religion, and health will be made, and what child support will be;
(2) you have an established court order that you want to have modified; and
(3) the other party is not complying with the court order. When a court order is established the noncustodial parent will be ordered to pay child support. Child support takes into consideration that a share of household expenses is for the child. So, child support is for the child, it is not for the purpose of supplementing the mother’s income.
