Child support at the deep end

Our firm does not represent movie or rock stars, but we do serve clients who have enjoyed success in business - owners, executives, professionals and others. The concern is always to provide or obtain a level of support that will ensure a good standard of living for children of the marriage.

What the exact level of support is, however, is not always clear in the law. Couples with complex assets require in-depth analysis to arrive at levels of support that address the reasonable needs of the child.

For this reason, your best bet is always to work with a family law attorney you trust who is experienced working in "the deep end of the pool."
