After two meetings with the mediator, the matter was resolved in a manner satisfactory to our client which included parenting time with the children.
Post Divorce – High Net Worth – Denial Of Request For Additional Support

Our client’s former spouse was the residential custodial parent. When our client’s former spouse learned of our client’s increase in income, the former spouse requested that our client pay increased support. We successfully opposed the request made by our client’s former spouse by pointing out to the court that the needs of the children had not changed and were more than adequately being met. The court agreed with our argument and issued a decision awarding our client’s spouse a small percentage of the amount requested in their papers for increased support.
