Delaware Family Law FAQ

We understand that going through the courts to retain the rights to your family can be a painful process. We have gathered some of the most common questions our clients have had about family law in the hopes that these answers can help put your mind at ease while you consider working with a family lawyer in Delaware.

What happens if the non-custodial parent fails to pay the mandated child support?

Delaware is strict in its laws regarding non-custodial parents who do not pay their child support. When the parent gets behind on payments, the custodial parent can file a Petition for Child Support Arrears. The courts will then determine how to get the non-custodial parent caught up on his or her payments and may even subject him or her to jail time as punishment.

Do grandparents have a right to visitation?

Grandparents can petition the court to have visitation in special circumstances. If one parent has no objection to the visits that the other parent has cut off and the grandparent-grandchild relationship will not negatively impact the relationship between child and parent, the court may allow the grandparents to have court-ordered visitation.

What is a guardian ad litem?

This is a court-appointed official who will advocate on behalf of the child. Such advocates are used when parents are battling in court, seemingly without regard for the children’s wants or needs. The guardian ad litem will often review both sides and compile a recommendation for the court that he or she feels will be most beneficial for the child or children in question.
