Deviations From The Child Support Guidelines

Bernstein, Esq., fights for the best interests of her clients, seeking child support awards that fit the needs of the particular family.

For some families, added expenses for day care or a child’s special needs must be considered as part of a child support award. Ms. Bernstein has the background and experience to help clients secure comprehensive arrangements that account for all issues of concern regarding children’s needs.

A family’s financial situation can change drastically, requiring the parties to revisit orders entered by the court. Laurie A. Bernstein, Esq., fights to help modify support awards as the needs of the family evolve and their circumstances change.
