The two most important things in your life are your family and your finances. During challenges like a separation, divorce, or child custody decision, it is especially important for high net worth families to have a lawyer who can aggressively represent you and protect both those you love and your future.
In many cases, the children of high net worth couples live a different kind of life than other kids. They sometimes go to more expensive schools, participate in more expensive activities, dress in more expensive clothes and often travel more frequently than other kids do.
When a high net worth couple divorces, the presumptive child support levels dictated by state guidelines may not be sufficient to cover the expenses associated with the child’s lifestyle. In cases like these, it is possible for the custodial parent’s attorney to seek child support in excess of the statutory maximums. These are complex cases that require the attention of an experienced child support lawyer who knows how to obtain the support your child needs.
