Augusta Military Child Custody Lawyer

Thomson Custody Dispute Attorney

Child custody issues can be among the most stressful challenges that you will ever face, and the stress can be worse if you are in the military. As a parent who loves your children, you want to make sure you have the best possible arrangements for spending time with them and helping them grow up.

If you are in the military or your ex-spouse is a service member, you should utilize the services of an experienced military divorce lawyer if you are concerned about child custody. Our attorneys can help you protect your legal rights and secure a fair child custody situation that will benefit your kids.

Experience Is Critical in Military Custody Matters

At Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, we represent service members in divorce, child custody and other serious legal matters that require a real understanding of military issues and concerns.

  • Do you need modification of child custody? If your living situation or life circumstances have changed, you may be able to have an existing child custody order changed. We can help you petition a court for a modification if appropriate.
  • Are you worried about child support, alimony or your military benefits? Our firm can help you handle important financial issues that relate to divorce and child custody, including child support or alimony payments and military benefits.
  • Are you deployed? A parent's deployment can leave children in limbo and complicate a divorce and child custody situation. When a custodial parent is deployed, sometimes the other parent may try to take advantage of his or her absence, while in other cases a court may treat a service member unfavorably in a divorce decree. For these reasons, it is important to get the help of an attorney who fully understands what it means to deployed and who can help you protect your legal rights.
