San Jose Child Custody and Support Attorneys

Lawyers for Custody and Support Matters in Santa Clara, Salinas, and the Bay Area

For parents going through a divorce, legal separation, or breakup, one of the most difficult and complex concerns are what type of arrangements will be made for the children. The idea of a child custody dispute can be very frightening and overwhelming for any conscientious parent, but we can help simplify the process. At the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich, we understand the challenges that parents face when determining child custody and parenting time arrangements for their children, and we can provide the guidance you need to develop a creative resolution that protects your children's best interests.

Child Custody Lawyers in Santa Clara County

California law provides that child custody and visitation arrangements should be made with the well-being of the child as the top priority. In most situations, this means that both parents should remain actively involved in the child's life. Sometimes, however, it is best for one parent to assume most or all of the parenting responsibilities. At our law firm, we help both mothers and fathers develop custody arrangements that meet the child's needs while respecting the rights of each parent.

The experienced attorneys at the Law Office of Thomas Nicholas Cvietkovich understand the importance of shared legal custody, allowing each parent to participate in making significant decisions about the child's education, health, and religious training. We also recognize the importance of a comprehensive visitation schedule that offers security and stability to each parent and the child.

Child Support in California

In addition to child custody and visitation arrangements, our firm is also equipped to assist parents with concerns related to child support. California law provides a formula for calculating child support payments which takes into account a number of factors, including:

  • Each parent's income and earning potential;
  • The number of children to be supported;
  • Parenting time afforded to each parent;
  • Previous obligations for child support;
  • Child care costs; and
  • Costs related to healthcare and insurance.

There are many situations in which the prescribed formula may not be appropriate, and our attorneys will work with you in analyzing the details of your unique case. Whether you are requesting child support or being asked to make support payments, we will provide the guidance and advice you need.
