Hartford Child Custody Lawyer

A Resource for Connecticut Families

As an experienced litigator, Greg Mogel knows that most people want to minimize the emotional impact family disputes can have on children. He shares that sentiment and works hard with his clients to create collaborative plans for child custody, access and support.

At his West Hartford law firm, Attorney Greg Mogel works with parents to make sure to best serve the interests of their children. He does this by fully advising them about the state laws regarding parenting time, child support, child custody and all other options. As a father himself, Mr. Mogel understands the strong emotional ties between parents and their children. So when parents divorce or otherwise end their relationship, it is important that they create a parenting plan in order to establish stability for everyone in the family.

Hartford County Child Visitation Attorney

There are as many parenting plans as there are families — each one is different. Typically, plans in Connecticut include details about regular schedules during the school year for school-aged children, as well as access during the summer months, vacations, holidays, snow and sick days, birthdays and other important dates. Parenting plans may change as children get older or as parents move or change jobs.

Based in West Hartford, the Law Offices of Greg Mogel, LLC helps clients understand the various forms of custody, including sole custody, joint custody and shared custody. We also handle issues that arise after the initial custody and access arrangements have been made. Some of these issues include:

  • Post-judgment modifications of custody, access or child support
  • Enforcement of child support and access orders
  • Parental relocation

West Hartford Child Support Lawyer

In Connecticut, there are guidelines used to calculate child support; however, there are often complicating factors that need to be taken into consideration in order to determine the appropriate amount of child support to be paid. Some issues that may complicate child support calculations are when a party is self-employed; not reporting all of his or her income; or underemployed. Other complicated calculations are necessary when dealing with large bonuses, or when a parent earns more than the guidelines amount. The process of establishing the proper amount of child support in these situations requires experience and knowledge of the child support guidelines and applicable laws.

With his experience in family law, Greg Mogel can calculate and analyze the child support guidelines as they apply to your family. We can also advise you about exceptions to the guideline amounts and whether a deviation may be appropriate to your situation.
