Child Custody And Visitation
In South Carolina, child custody is determined first and foremost by what is in the best interests of the child. It takes a lawyer’s help to learn how this standard will apply to your case. To protect your rights to your child during custody and visitation, attorney Bryan W. Braddock will work closely with you from start to finish. At Braddock Law Firm, LLC, you will have direct contact with your attorney throughout the process.
We can help you resolve custody and visitation, whether your case is straightforward or the other parent is fighting you on every point. Bryan has the experience to represent you in negotiation, mediation and, if necessary, at trial. Your options will be explained so you have the information you need to make sound decisions about the future of your family.
Parents Can Work Together To Reach An Agreement
In general, the court strives for a custody and visitation arrangement that gives the child the most meaningful time with both parents. To assist you in reaching an agreement, we can help you create a proposed parenting plan that details how you will share parenting time. We can also include other relevant information that the court will require, including how you will handle the child’s religious upbringing, dating, college and other issues.
Mediation is virtually always required in contested custody cases, which is good since it is almost always beneficial to parties who are working through custody and visitation agreements. As a family court mediator, Bryan can represent you in mediation. He is available to serve as the mediator for parents either unrepresented or represented by attorneys other than him.
