Child Support and Financial Aspects of Separating Parents
Star Law Office ensures that every client receives a fair child support award taking into account tax exemptions, medical expenditures, relative incomes and potential incomes. The use of experts may be necessary such as a forensic accountant to value a business, or a real estate agent to assess the value of property, or a employment expert to determine a parent's potential income. Sometimes separating parents have jointly owned property or debts and Star Law Office will assist in creating a fair division under Idaho Law.
Children, Custody, Parenting Time and Visitation
An order or agreement on custody and a parenting time schedule must be created quickly to create stability and predictability for every child and parent. Star Law Office assists separating parents in ensuring that their children will quickly be in the best situation possible and that every concern of our client is addressed fairly and adequately under Idaho Law.
Idaho has a presumption of joint legal and physical custody and each Judge is mandated to make a decision in the best interests of the child. Star Law Office can explain what that means for you and your children and how to arrange for the best custody and parenting time schedule for you and your children. Sometimes an expert is necessary to do a custodial evaluation and sometimes the right mediator is necessary for the parents to work together to resolve all of the details regarding their children's welfare.
Moving Out of State or to Another County With Your Children
Under Idaho law a move from Idaho or from one county to another affects the other parent's time with the children and you may need a court order or a written agreement before your move. If you do not have a court order or a written agreement a court could order a significant change in custody or parenting time. Star Law Office can consult you as to whether a written agreement is necessary, can prepare the necessary written agreement and can file the proper paperwork and represent you in Court. In any event any move may necessitate a change in the parent's parenting time schedule and possibly child support.
Idaho Courts favor the use of mediators for all aspect of family law or domestic relations law, whether it is to resolve financial issues alone or custody issues alone or a combination of both. Star Law Office can assist clients who want to resolve their conflicts civilly or are ordered to mediate, in finding the best mediators which are certified by the Supreme Court.
