Advice from Child Custody Divorce Lawyer in Lighthouse Point

CChildren have a right to their parents as parents have a right to have access and to spend time their children. If you want to establish your rights and responsibility as a parent, it is essential to assert those rights. The Law Office of Sheena Benjamin Wise is experienced in both establishment and disestablishment of paternity, and can help in the following scenarios:

  • Unmarried parents often find themselves in conflict because they have not learned what the law requires of them to co-parent their child. Once you are deemed the legal parent over a child, you have a right to confer over the welfare of the child, and enjoy time with your child.
  • You may have recently discovered that you have been misled or deceived into believing that you are the parent to another’s child. You may have the ability to address this matter and prove that you are not the father of a child in a disestablishment of paternity action.
Child Support in Lighthouse Point

Parents have a right to raise and have access to their children in Lighthouse Point. Parents cannot waive the child’s right to be supported. Generally, child support is payable until the child is 18 years of age, graduates high school, gets married, becomes emancipated, or dies, unless the child has special needs in which case, payments may be extended beyond the child’s 18th birthday.

The calculation of child support depends on many factors, such as time-sharing, the parents’ incomes, educational expenses, insurance costs, child care costs, and extracurricular expenses. Child Support is the legal determination to financially contribute for the needs of minor children. Every child has the right to have financial support from both their parents.

The Law Office of Sheena Benjamin Wise will help you ensure that your child support calculation is correct.
