Protecting Your Rights As A Parent
It is important to all parents to be able to retain control over how they raise their own children. However, when married parents file for divorce, the court has some say in what happens to the child or children: where they will live, who gets to make critical decisions in their lives, and other important decisions.
If you are a divorcing or separating parent who wants to retain some child-raising autonomy, the best option is to work with an experienced lawyer who can fight to protect your rights.
At The Siemon Law Firm, we handle child custody matters in Cobb County. From our Cobb County office in Marietta, Georgia, we represent parents in divorce, separation and other situations that involve child custody considerations.
Handling Every Aspect Of Child Custody
When the court gets involved with your parental rights and autonomy, it is critical to work with a team of experienced lawyers who can represent your interests effectively and help you retain your relationship with you child.
- Parenting plans: A parenting plan is an agreement between the parents outlining all of the important issues involved in separate parenting. These issues can include parenting time, details of exchange of the child, and decision-making authority over the child.
- Mediation: Most custody arrangements can be worked out between the parties in mediation outside of the courtroom. Our lawyers can walk you through the process and make sure your interests are protected.
- Custody disputes: Some custody disputes cannot be mediated effectively. We can fight for your interests in the courtroom to make sure you do not lose your parental rights and time with your child.
- Custody modifications: It is quite common for the work and life situations of divorced or separated parents to change. When this happens, usually a custody modification must be approved by the court. Our attorneys can walk you through this process.
These are just a few of the custody-related services we offer, and all of these involve numerous complications and nuances. Some cases involve accusations of child abuse, alienation or other claims, and there could be issues of unfitness of one of the parents or grandparents and others getting involved and fighting for custody rights.
