Greenville Child Custody Lawyer Fighting For Your Rights

Handling child custody cases in South Carolina

Child custody can be the most important issue a parent faces during divorce. No parent should have to endure the devastating prospect of losing precious time with a child or forfeiting essential parental rights because of an unjust custody or visitation decision. You need an attorney who will protect your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. 

Dianne S. Riley stands by your side in aspects of child custody and visitation:

  • Primary or joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Mediation: A tool for cooperation

Children are best served when parents establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly-effective tool for you to preserve the stability and well-being of your children’s lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of a mediated solution reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than the court. At Dianne Riley, we help guide discussions toward settlements that protect your child’s best interest and your parental rights.

In support of litigation

Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests. If mediation and negotiations fail or the other parent presents a danger to your child’s well-being, the courtroom presents an essential forum for establishing your parental rights. The uncertainty of litigation can add to the stress and upheaval surrounding your family’s lives. With a competent attorney by your side, you can feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
