Focused, Compassionate Legal Representation

Child Custody

Determining the best child custody arrangement for your children can be difficult. In addition to the desires of the parents and child, there are also several factors taken into account by the court including each parent's relationship with the child and the child's age. Mr. Zivley can help you reach a child custody agreement that benefits your entire family.*

Child Support

Mr. Zivley can help you establish the proper amount of child support through an evaluation of expenses, income, and custody. Mr. Zivley strongly believes that child support should help ensure that your child is provided with everything they need. He can help clients to develop custody agreements, and also modify and enforce them as necessary.*


A balanced visitation schedule is crucial to a healthy parent-child relationship. While the court will implement the "Standard Possession Order" if a custom arrangement is not established, Mr. Zivley can help negotiate amicable arrangements that benefit everyone involved, including parents with unconventional careers or schedules.*
