    Child Custody and Support

    If there are children under the age of 18, the issues of custody and financial support must be settled. Will the kids live exclusively with one parent, and visit the other on weekends? Or will there be a timesharing agreement? Where do the kids spend holidays? Can one parent take them on a lengthy vacation? Can either parent relocate out of the area? All of this has to be worked out according to the unique circumstances of each client’s marriage. 

    All of the above are important issues, existential in the lives of the spouses. When the divorcing couple has a large financial portfolio, matters can become even more complicated. Property division in high-asset divorce cases often involves the valuation of stock portfolios, real estate, business interests, and consideration of an array of tax issues. Alimony decisions are impacted by the higher standard of living that each spouse became accustomed to. Children have the right to share in the lifestyle of their parents, so custody and support decisions in high-asset cases have their own unique dynamic. 

    When you have practiced law for nearly 40 years, like Gary Blaustein, Attorney has, you see a lot of different scenarios unfold, and you get networked with a lot of reliable professionals whose insights and testimony can be helpful. Attorney Blaustein hopes for the opportunity to put his resources and skills to work for you.
