While parents want what is best for their children, the emotions of divorce can spill over into child custody and visitation issues. At The Siemon Law Firm, our goal is to help you resolve parenting issues in a way that will keep the focus on your children's best interests, while keeping lines of communication open between you and your ex.
Visitation Attorney in Milton
Georgia courts favor joint custody unless there are strong reasons (such as evidence of past child abuse) why one parent should not have access to children.
In most joint custody plans, one parent has primary residential custody while the other parent has overnight visits according to a schedule. However, 50-50 child custody plans are possible when both parents live in the same school district and have good co-parenting skills.
Most child custody and visitation plans are a matter of negotiation. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, the court will order mediation. Our attorneys will represent you in the mediation process and in negotiations with your spouse and his or her attorney.
If mediation is not successful, then the court will decide based on the best interests of your children. The court will consider evidence such as who has been the primary caretaker, the lifestyles of the parties and the wishes of the children if they are older.
Our lawyers are experienced in presenting the right arguments and evidence to support your child custody goals.
