Nolo's essential guide to child custody & support / Attorney Emily Doskow.

Doskow, Emily, (author.).


When you're getting divorced, you can make a tough time easier for your children (and yourself) if you work with the other parent to draw up a custody plan and agree on child support. Doskow shows you how negotiation and mediation can keep costs down; where to find your state's child support guidelines; how to enforce and change custody and support orders; what military families need to know, and much more.
