Divorce, Child Custody & Special Needs Children
Matters of child custody and child support become decidedly more complex when a child with special needs is involved. The expenses for health care, therapy, adaptive equipment and other needs may require far more child support than usual.
Additionally, the parent with physical custody may have to spend so much time caring for the child, that he or she may require additional spousal maintenance as well.
If you are a parent of a special needs child and are facing divorce, you face a wide range of difficult questions, including:
- What kind of medical treatment will the child receive?
- Will both parents have input as to the education their child receives?
- Do the homes of both spouses have accommodations for their child's special needs?
Our attorneys understand the special circumstances you are facing as the parent of a child with special needs, and will explore all of the potential complications you may encounter. Our focus is protecting the best interests of your child, and helping you preserve the special relationship you have with your son or daughter.
