We often use mediation to assist clients in negotiating the terms of a child custody or child support matter. Mediation involves a neutral third party that hears the facts from both sides and makes a recommendation to the court regarding custody and visitation. Either side can challenge that recommendation if it believes it is not appropriate. We will represent you in family law court, where a judge will determine a parenting plan. If circumstances in your life have changed significantly in the years following the determination and you believe your child custody arrangement should be updated, we can help you seek a child custody modification.

Child Support Modifications

In California, the amount of child support a parent will be required to pay is determined by using a child support calculator. No judge has the authority to change that number. If the financial circumstances of either parent change, however, or if another significant change in circumstances occurs, child support can be modified. At John Nguyen, Attorney at Law, we handle all types of family law matters. In addition to English, attorney Nguyen speaks fluent Vietnamese and the staff at the firm speaks fluent Spanish.
