No area of the law requires more understanding and guidance than that pertaining to minor children. A parent is entitled to time with their children and play a role in raising those children. Although some parents are not able to live together any longer, it doesn't make him/her any less important in their child's life. As such, you need a lawyer who is well versed in time-sharing issues to help advocate for your rights as a parent. It is important to have a lawyer who can relate and explain the applicable laws to your specific needs as a family.

Each child is entitled to support from his/her parent based on the parents' net income, overnight time-sharing as well as other factors.
