Pursuant to the Family Code, travel costs can be an additional element of child support. This is determined on a factual basis, and each and every case is different. The normal travel cost normally associated with custody is either air fare or possibly the expense to drive one’s car a great distance for visitation. The code allows for these costs to be apportioned in the case where one party earns a great deal more than the other party, or where appropriate.
As a family law firm we are aware that travel cost assignments are completely at the discretion of the court, and therefore, the equitable issues of fairness are important with regards to travel costs.

They handled my case very well. They scoured through the details and supplied good communication so I always felt informed and clear about my position within the litigation. Each time we meet the staff was very informed and clear on the details of my case and goals for which I hired them.Dale
