Custody And Support: Resolving Issues Vital To Your Child’s Future
Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. At Candace M. Williams, P.C., I am committed to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy environment. When I represent families in northeast Georgia, I draw on many years of experience handling all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:
- Visitation rights
- Primary and joint custody arrangements
- Grandparent visitation
- Modification of custody and visitation orders
- Enforcing custody and/or support orders
- Decisions related to education, religion and a child’s upbringing
My goal will be to help you maintain the loving relationship you have with your child or children.
Reliable Counsel Providing Advantages In Mediation
It’s my belief that children do better and thrive when their parents are cordial and maintain an amicable relationship. With mediation, I can help parents set aside their hostility in order to come to agreements on key decisions that are currently affecting or could affect their children.
Because mediation focuses on finding common ground through negotiation rather than fighting, parents are more likely to ensure a positive outcome for their child or children’s well-being as they, too, go through the divorce process. Mediation can also help relieve stress by putting the decision-making process on important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents instead of the judge or court. I meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.
Skilled Litigation In Family Court
Although mediation can be an effective tool in custody and divorce proceedings, sometimes litigation is necessary in order to protect a child’s best interests. Litigation is often considered the best option to protect parents’ rights and the best interests of a child in cases when one parent is unable to compromise on important issues, one parent expresses hostility toward the other parent, a parent is threatening the well-being of a child or the parent poses a danger to the child.
My firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children and their best interests are protected and that your parental rights have been taken into consideration.
