Let’s take the next group of people. The next group of people I would describe as people that are able to work together most of the time, but really don’t have a one hundred percent trust in the other parent. Those types of parents might want to contact a Family Law attorney and get some legal advice to determine what a proper visitation or custodial schedule should look like relative to their work schedule, what the proper amount of child support that you should receive or that you should pay is before having a conversation with the other parent.
I don’t like these situations, but I can tell you that this comes up a lot. And if you feel like you’re in this kind of situation or if you feel like you’re going against a parent that is so angry that they just can’t even have a discussion with you, give us a call if you are in Orange County, or anywhere in California. We will absolutely talk to you and we’d be happy to represent you against somebody like that on the other side. We will keep in mind that there’s always room for discussion. Even if you guys hate each other, we can always hop on the phone and say, “look, this is just not making sense. We need to do something that makes sense, or we need to come up with a number for child support or spouse support that’ll work for us temporarily while we duke it out in court?”
