Augusta Child Custody Attorneys

Helping You Preserve Your Family After A Divorce

Custody of the children is one of the most hotly contested issues during a divorce. Dealing with your spouse, as well as your own emotions, can be traumatic. What is most important to remember during this process is the well-being of your kids. Our Augusta lawyers will help you find the best child custody arrangement for everyone involved.

Floyd Leopard, LLP, provides compassionate service and aggressive representation for people going through divorce. We help you make the decisions that will affect the rest of your life, including decisions that involve your children. Our attorneys are licensed in Georgia and South Carolina so we can address any jurisdictional issues involved in your case. We know you love your children and want to do what is best for them and we will help you do so.

Acting In The Best Interests Of Your Children

State laws on both sides of the river require that child custody decisions be made "in the best interests of the child." This does not necessarily favor either parent but is designed to ensure that both parents play a part in their children's lives. Factors that are considered in child custody decisions include:

  • Which parent has been the primary caregiver
  • Each parent's work schedule
  • Cooperation between the parents regarding visitation
  • History of physical or mental abuse of the children
  • History of substance abuse by either parent

Whether you are seeking sole custody of your children or you and your spouse plan on splitting parenting time, our attorneys can help you create a parenting plan that will suit everybody's needs.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on who has custody of the children, we will fight for your parental rights and protect your interests in a courtroom, if necessary.
