  3. Child support
    10%
    Child support matters can occur in family court or magistrate court in Connecticut and very often, Support Enforcement Services is involved. Whether you are the parent paying child support or receiving it, you need to understand your rights and obligations that pertain to your financial responsibility to your child. Keep in mind that child support pays for the child's physical, emotional, and educational needs and is different than alimony (spousal support) after a divorce.

The best lawyer out there
An incredible lawyer who goes out of her way to do everything possible for you. She emphasized with my situation. I felt like I was working with a friend rather than just my lawyer.
Posted by Drew | December 3, 2012
Professional, knowledgeable and courteous
Attorney Shore has given me sage, real-time advice and legal counsel on a variety of legalities from setting up an LLC to drafting a real estate lease. Aside from being accessible, she's extremely resourceful and has single-handedly taken the stress out of the legal element of my ventures. Even after the legal transactions take place, Shari has always been available for any questions or concerns I may have. Despite needing fairly limited ongoing consultation compared to many businesses and individuals, I've always felt like a valued client of Attorney Shore's.
