Divorce is a difficult time in anyone's life, but when children are involved, the matter becomes even more sensitive. The Law Office of Rebecca E. Rogers will work with you to ensure that the best interests of your children are paramount and that your rights as a parent are upheld.
Child Custody and Visitation
There are many factors taken into account when a judge determines child custody and visitation, but the welfare of the children is always the Court's first priority. It is usually the intention of the Court to maximize the child's relationship with both parents when possible. A judge will look at the age of the children, the ability of each parent to care and provide for the children, and the location of a parent's home. Even though a judge will ultimately have the final say in custody and visitation, it is still extremely important to have an experienced child custody lawyer, like Attorney Rebecca Rogers, who can help you best present your case. If you are in need of a Lowell custody or Lowell visitation attorney, contact The Law Office of Rebecca E. Rogers today.

How Is Child Support Decided?
It used to be that child support was an issue with divorcing parents only, but nowadays there are many unmarried individuals who have children together too. In either situation, matters of child support are sensitive to all parties involved. In Massachusetts, the child support guidelines are a set formula based on gross income, which the Courts generally do not deviate from. There are various circumstances in which a Court can Order an amount of support that differs from the amount calculated through the child support guidelines. Attorney Rogers can help you understand the law regarding child support, and she can also assist those individuals who need to bring or defend against a request to modify the current amount of child support.
Custodial Parent Relocation
What happens when the custodial parent wants to relocate to a different state or a different country? Often, both of the parents can work out a visitation arrangement between themselves. But many times, it will be important for you to retain a lawyer to help you win or defend against a request for permission to remove a child from Massachusetts to another state. Attorney Rogers works with families to achieve a suitable and fair outcome when it comes to custodial parent's request for removal or relocation.
