Child Support Case Example
The Law Offices of William J. Courtney, LLC, has been successful in several high-profile child support cases. In the case of Gac vs. Gac, two former spouses became involved in a dispute over payment of their child’s college tuition. Following the divorce, the child’s mother no longer communicated with the father and did not consult with him about the choice of college institution. The father had moved to terminate child support when the mother responded asserting he was obligated to pay for the college tuition and won. We successfully achieved a reversal of the decision for the father on appeal.
