Child Custody: The physical and legal custody of your children is often the most important concerns you may ever face. The experienced attorneys at Diekman & Leightner understand that the thought of not having your children with you as much as possible, can be very disheartening. However, we understand the law regarding custody and the factors which go into developing a parenting plan that is in the best interests of your children and maximizes your parenting time. Let us help you go through the challenge of developing the best parenting plan for your children.

Child Support: Finding the right amount of child support is necessary for both the parent paying child support and the parent receiving child support.  Many factors go into determining who should pay child support and the amount, if any, that should be paid. There are child support guidelines set up in Missouri, but those guidelines can be deviated from, so it is important to have an attorney guide you through the Supreme Court Rules to determine the correct amount.

Paternity: Even if your child’s parent name is on the birth certificate, you may wish to establish a custody plan which divides the time between each parent, and determine the proper child support order.

Grandparent’s Rights: Visitation of the minor children by their grandparents may be established in Missouri. These grandparent rights are often limited. We can help you determine what rights Grandparents may have, and help protect your interests.

Moving: Before relocating your children, there are strict procedures you need to make to ensure that you may relocate. Diekman & Leightner are experienced trial attorneys that will fight to protect your rights in any request to move.
