Visitation (parenting time):
If you are a noncustodial parent, an attorney can ensure that you have visitation rights, which give you the opportunity to remain close to your children. It's a right that shouldn't be taken lightly. South Carolina courts can take parenting time away if you fail to abide by the terms of the agreement.

Advocating for You in Child Custody Hearings

Turn to our child custody attorneys when your table mediation fails to get you the advocacy in court that you need. Let us stand before the judge in order to ensure that the safety of your children is protected. Call today to schedule an appointment with our child custody lawyer to learn what we can do for your kids.
Understanding Custody in South Carolina
When Greenville couples divorce, they must determine if one parent will have primary responsibility for taking care of the children or if they will share parenting duties. At one time, custody was awarded to one parent, usually the mother.
Things are changing in South Carolina. Not only do fathers have an equal opportunity to have custody of the kids, but they also have a greater say in their upbringing. Some couples are able to work out a joint custody agreement in which the children live a specified amount of time with each parent. Others may find it easier to have joint custody, but primary placement (you share custody and decision-making and the child lives with one parent).
As Greenville child custody lawyers, we'll help you find a custody arrangement that serves the best interests of your child and satisfies your needs. We'll help you work out other issues, too, such as homeschooling instead of sending the kids to school. Every divorce is unique, and so are the child custody issues that accompany it.
