Child custody is the most vital aspect of any separation and/or divorce action in court. It is of utmost importance to each child that their parents make the best, most responsible decisions possible when choosing an attorney to represent them throughout the child custody process.


The courts require strict adherence to many rules and regulations in every child custody case. Since child custody is so emotionally charged, child custody decisions are – and should be – some of the most difficult decisions of one’s life. The health and wellbeing of your child are at stake, and every good parent wants to do whatever is in their child’s best interests. These decisions must be made with utmost sincerity by both parents, and in a manner that ensures that each child is served in a manner that is most beneficial to them.

At JOS FAMILY LAW , you can rest assured that your case is being handled by an experienced attorney who possesses not only the knowledge and understanding required to navigate your case and negotiate on your behalf, but one who also cares deeply about your matter and will give you the best possible legal advice and services.

Unfortunately, some parents use their child as a weapon against the other parent. This is so detrimental to the child, who will ultimately suffer the most with mental, physical, and spiritual difficulties that will cause them undue and utterly undeserved pain, often for many years past the time when they reach the age of majority.

At JOS FAMILY LAW , Binoye Jos helps and supports each and every client in a manner that takes into account all the sentiments and emotions that accompany any child custody case. Mr. Jos assists his clients to work with opposing parents as much as possible in order to handle as many issues as possible before involving the courts.

When parents no longer live together, and depending on the age and emotional maturity of the child, the courts often take into consideration the child’s preference regarding living arrangements. Because a child will be deeply affected by the decisions reached by the courts about which parent the child will live with, and because any and all such decisions will affect the holistic growth and wellbeing of the child, the courts consider input from the child seriously, whenever appropriate.

If you find yourself in a difficult situation regarding child custody issues, you must have an experienced and understanding attorney to help you reach a resolution that best suits you and your child. Feel free to contact JOS FAMILY LAW , and we will help you throughout the child custody process in the most seamless manner possible. Call us at (714) 733-7066, or contact us via email at We look forward to serving you.

A party requesting child support, spousal support or attorney’s fees must fill out an Income and Expense Declaration. On the second page of that declaration, the party must state their income from all sources (including public benefits) not only in the last month but also the average received in the second column.

This can be accomplished by adding all income (for example in the last 6 months) and then dividing by the total number of months (in our example 6). On the third page, the party declares their monthly recurring expenses for each category described. If the figures are estimates, then that box will be checked.

If the Income and Expense Declaration is supporting a request for Attorney’s Fees, then the party must include the amount of attorney’s fees paid and any outstanding balance owed to their attorney. That section must also be signed by their Attorney.

The last page must include the percentage of overall time spent with the children of that relationship. The bottom of the last page permits the party to state any hardship or additional costs to be incurred elated to providing care for their children.


The party filling out the declaration must also include their most recent paycheck stubs from the last 60 days. You should black out (redact) your employee identification or badge number and social security number. If your employer provides direct deposit, you should black out your bank account number as this information may be publicly available in Divorce or Domestic Violence Restraining Order cases.

Keep in mind that throughout your Paternity or Divorce case, you need to continually update your Income and Expense Declaration, particularly in Dissolution of Marriage cases, especially before any scheduled:

  1. Request for Order hearing requesting child support or spousal support;
  2. Mandatory Settlement conferences;
  3. Trial Readiness Conference.

If you need help preparing your Income and Expense Declaration, call JOS FAMILY LAW at (714) 733-7066.
