"Many of our prospective clients have needlessly suffered from anxiety, fear, embarrassment and other emotional difficulty because of their family law problems. The causes are generally (1) Fear of the unknown (of their rights in a dissolution action), (2) Concern over protecting their relationship with their children and causing as little turmoil as possible and (3) Concern about finances; i.e., where will the money come from or how much money will they have to pay."

A parent's first and primary duty is to support minor children according to the parent's position in society. Child support ensures that a child's necessities will be met throughout the formative years. Child support amounts should emulate the living standard of both parents, therefore the child support award is more than a reflection of necessities. When the parent providing child support has a lifestyle above the custodial parent, child support should reflect that fact.
