Skilled attorney strives for amicable child support settlements through mediation
Children fare best when their parents can be cordial and respectful of one another. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can often put aside their differences and focus on a topic on which they tend to agree — the importance of their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for parents and their attorneys to negotiate a fair child support arrangement that allows both parents to share in the financial decisions and obligations of raising their children. As a skilled negotiator, Attorney Franklin can guide the process toward equitable solutions that often save the time and expense of litigation.
Committed attorney goes to court on behalf of parents and children
In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. Ms. Franklin carefully prepares for litigation to achieve an equitable arrangement for your child.

And when financial problems or the changing needs of your children alter your circumstances, Ms. Franklin can petition the court for a modification to the child support order.
