Protecting Your Rights, Protecting Your Children
Since 1993, individuals and families in Cherokee County and the surrounding areas have entrusted their legal problems to our law firm. We are honored to help people in their time of need, particularly when it involves their children.
Georgia law maintains that any child custody agreement or order must be in the best interests of the child involved. However, you and your child’s other parent probably have different ideas about what arrangement would be in your child’s best interests.
We will work with you closely to understand your child’s needs and your priorities in order to build and prove your case.
The court may consider 17 specific factors when evaluating a child’s best interests. They include the child’s relationship and emotional connection to both parents and siblings, each parent’s ability to care for the child and involvement to this point and, depending on age, the child’s preference. We are prepared to help you obtain a child custody and visitation agreement or parenting plan that a judge will approve.
As skilled negotiators and aggressive, proven trial lawyers, we have the advocacy skills to handle complex and contested child custody cases, including those involving proposed child relocations.
Child custody is a highly personal matter and you should hire an attorney with whom you feel comfortable. Contact our law firm today to schedule a legal consultation with one of our lawyers to discuss your case and learn whether we are the right fit for you.
