Lexington, SC Child Custody Attorneys
Columbia, SC Child Custody Attorneys
One of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce is often who gets custody of the children. Parents often cannot agree on who gets custody, what the visitation schedule should be, or what the proper amount of child support the non-custodial parent has to pay should be. To best navigate these thorny issues, you need an attorney that will fight for your rights. The attorneys at Stratton & Reynolds, LLC will zealously fight to get you custody, visitation rights, or to have the amount of child support you are paying or receiving adjusted due to changes in circumstances.
The “Best Interests of the Child”
When considering child custody, the Family Court must choose custody based on the best interest of the child. Often, the best interest of the child is a difficult standard to define. The Court will consider a number of factors when assessing the best interest of the child such as the overall character of the parents, the choice of the child (if of appropriate age), the religion of the parents, immoral conduct of one parent, financial resources, stability of the home, etc. There is no absolute test, and it is important to talk to a family law attorney when facing a custody issue.
