CHILD CUSTODY LITIGATION
When going through a divorce, child custody can be a daunting process as it involves the most important people in your life - your children. In most cases both parents will have legal rights to their children, but there is often a dispute as to how those rights and custody should be allocated.

CHILD CUSTODY MOVE AWAY
At some point after a divorce or breakup a parent may need to move and as a result will require a change in their child custody orders. These can be some of the most difficult cases for the court to decide.
Divorce is not only emotionally difficult but can often wreak havoc on an individual's financial and physical well-being. Potential losses include parents losing time with their children, a drop in income either due to support payments or the loss of a spouse's income, and the potential loss of any property accumulated during marriage.

GRANDPARENT VISITATION LITIGATION
At Provinziano & Associates we believe that grandparents play an integral role in the lives of their grandchildren and we believe those rights should be protected. However, for many grandparents in need of visitation the court process can often seem like an uphill battle that is both difficult and discouraging.
In certain situations, a child may be in the custody of a family member, such as a grandparent, because the parents are deceased or are mentally or physically unable to provide care for their child. In these cases, the probate court has the authority to grant a guardianship over the child to order or permit an individual to act in the capacity of a parent for that child.

SEEKING CHILD SUPPORT
If you are a custodial parent and need child support from the other spouse, time is of the essence as the court has no authority to order child support until a petition for support has been filed. If a client has been recently abandoned by the primary income-earner, the Provinziano Legal Team will lobby to get into court quickly and will seek immediate and effective child-support orders.

DEFENDING AGAINST CHILD SUPPORT
When clients need to defend against an increase in child support, there are multiple avenues we use to effectively reach the accurate determination of appropriate child support. These avenues include determining the overall income of the other parent seeking the support – this can often be non-monetary in nature, but could be viewed as income by the court.
While the parties to a marriage should never contemplate divorce, everyone going into a marriage is faced with the question of whether to get a pre-nup.
