Making the Best Decisions for Your Loved Ones

Family law covers legal matters that affect your family unit. Although many of these issues can be managed within your family, some issues may require the advice and assistance of a skilled attorney. Family law includes issues like adoptions, divorce, child custody, marriage laws, paternity, child support and more. Our team will get you the information you need to make the best decisions for you and those who depend on you.

Child Custody and Child Support

When you are in the midst of a family law dispute such as child custody, it can be easy to let tensions boil over and lose sight of what really matters. You must stay calm and focused. Emerging from a family law battle with a brighter future can be a reality if you have the help of a competent, aggressive attorney who can effectively explain your options. With the experience of helping our clients for all of these years, we are able get them to see the light at the end of the tunnel and move forward in their lives.
It is important to try and work custody issues out between the parents of the child. The less bitter feelings and arguments that the child is exposed to, the better. If you come to an agreement, you should have a qualified attorney prepare a written stipulation along with a proposed order that can be submitted to the court. Make sure it is done correctly, so that you and your child are protected. 
However, sometimes you cannot work it out with the other parent, and litigation is the only option. Get an attorney from the very beginning, so that things are done right from the beginning. In a custody matter, the best interests of the children should be the number one priority. Children can pick up on tension and anger that is present with their parents, which in turn can affect their behavior. When a parent truly loves their child and wants the best for their child, then the parent needs to step aside and see what is in the best interests of their child, as opposed to getting even with their ex-spouse.  
The hardworking team at the Law Firm of Joel A. Santos prides themselves on being able to handle complex and difficult legal matters for their clients by combining their knowledge of family law with a dedicated and attentive work ethic.
