As the parent of a child with special needs, you are too aware of the risks, stresses, and complications that come with caring for your particular loved one. This becomes infinitely more complex when the parents of a special needs child decide to part ways, whether this be through a divorce or a breakup between unmarried parents. A day in the life of caring for a special needs child is intense, and a single parent will need plenty of financial and emotional support. This is why it is essential your parenting plan covers these issues and more, and our Hamden family lawyers of Goldblatt, Marquette & Rashba, PC ensure you and your child’s best interests are protected throughout this difficult time.
