Child Custody and Visitation

Child custody, support, and visitation decisions are some of the most important aspects of a dissolution proceeding, or paternity for individuals with children. In determining how parental responsibilities are to be shared, a couple must determine:

  • The primary and secondary residence of the children
  • Whether rotating custody is appropriate
  • What the visitation schedule will be
  • Shared decision making

There are a number of important issues that must be determined in the calculation of child support, including:

  • Income of the parties
  • The needs of the child
  • The contact and access schedule
  • The needs of the children for health and life insurance
