Custody, Child Support And Parental Rights
Just as daily life revolves around the needs and activities of your children, the best interests of your children take center stage in divorce. Differing visions about care and custody of children become magnified, triggering heated disputes and legal tangles.
The Marietta firm of Hill Macdonald, LLC, delivers practical perspectives and strong advocacy for resolving these complex family law matters. Our attorneys have 25 years of combined experience in mediating, negotiating and litigating child custody and child support. Our familiarity with Georgia family law and the local judges of Cobb, Fulton and Cherokee counties helps us develop the right legal strategies for the most favorable outcome for you.
We emphasize workable solutions over spiteful or shortsighted tactics — after the dust clears, you will always be co-parents, putting trust and communication at a premium.
In The Best Interests Of The Children
Our skilled lawyers can capably address all issues relating to your children:
- Contested custody proceedings
- Negotiating joint custody and parenting plans
- Initial determination of child support
- Post-decree modifications or parent relocation
- Enforcement and contempt of court
- Paternity and legitimation (unmarried parents)
- Domestic violence protection orders
- Appeals of family court rulings
Sensible Solutions And Aggressive Advocacy
We encourage and enable parents to resolve custody disputes out of court, including the use of alternative dispute resolution. However, sometimes there is no middle ground, the other parent initiates a hostile action, or complex issues must be decided by a judge.
Vic Brown Hill and Brad E. Macdonald are accomplished trial lawyers who prepare for litigation to give you leverage and peace of mind in the event that negotiations do not pan out. We will vigorously defend your interests and pursue your goals, always with your children’s well-being at the heart of the equation.
