Resolving Children's Issues In Divorce Efficiently And Cost-Effectively

If you face divorce or you are ending a nonmarital relationship in which you and your partner have minor children, the issues involving your children, such as custody, parenting plans and financial support, are likely among your primary concerns.

Many parents wish to protect their children from the emotional consequences of divorce. What they often fail to realize until it is too late is the lawyer they hire to represent them will have a significant impact on how their case is resolved. The barracuda attorney who promises to fight for everything on your wish list often introduces unnecessary stress into the process, prolongs the dispute (thereby increasing legal fees), and winds up overpromising and underdelivering.

We Develop Plans That Work

At Jackoboice Law Firm in Kansas City, Missouri, attorney Jill Jackoboice will work directly with you to help you set realistic expectations, retain more control over the final outcome, control costs and reduce the amount of stress involved for everyone in your family. Jill has more than 20 years of legal experience. She is highly regarded among her peers in the legal community. Jill is noted for finding creative resolutions for disputes that seem destined to litigate, as well as for her litigation skills when a fair agreement cannot be reached amicably.

We work to resolve the full range of children's issues, including:

  • Child support — Kansas and Missouri courts follow guidelines that provide some framework for support decisions, but there are a number of factors that can cause deviations.
  • Custody and parenting plans — We will protect your rights as a parent and your relationship with your child.
  • Modifying existing orders — We help parents pursue or prevent modifications to existing orders regarding custody, visitation or support, as well as petitions to relocate with a child.
  • Paternity — More parents are having children out of wedlock, including those in same-sex relationships. We help our clients establish paternity or otherwise protect their parental rights in these situations.

A Tough Negotiator And Litigator

Jill won't ask you to compromise if your request is reasonable, but she will be candid if you seek a ruling that is unlikely to be approved and more likely to lead to costly litigation. She is a skillful negotiator and litigator who knows the proper times to emphasize those roles.

We welcome the opportunity to answer your questions regarding custody and child support, and help you develop a plan that will achieve your goals. Call 816-298-1098 or use our online contact form to schedule a meeting.
