Fighting for Your Rights in Child Custody and Support
One of the most complicated aspects of a divorce is often the children, their custody and support. For most parents, the children are far more important than the division of assets or alimony payments. When you are fighting for your children, you need an attorney with experience.
I have been a Clemson child custody attorney for more than 25 years, and I can help fight for your rights regarding your children's custody and support. My South Carolina family and divorce law firm can help you make sure your children are cared for.
