At The Halberg Law Firm we offer our clients divorce with a difference--the close attention to their best interest and personal service by an experienced lawyer. When we approach child custody issues, we want to serve the best interests of the child or children as well. We will negotiate a livable custody and visitation settlement, litigate if we are unable to come to an agreement, and modify or enforce any existing agreement. The Halberg Law Firm will help you create a parenting plan (custody agreement) that will satisfy you and your children.
Our attorneys always look for creative solutions in order to avoid litigation such as negotiation, alternative dispute resolutions, and mediation, provide results more cost effectively than a trial in family court. To that end, we have created documents that reflect lengthy negotiations and provide significant contact with both parents, while placing our clients' and their children's needs paramount. We will investigate every possible arrangement with the best interest of the child or children
As children's issues are of particular importance to our firm, attorney Blake Halberg has undergone extensive training to become a Guardian ad Litem. He also has been trained as a certified Parent Coordinator. Blake Halberg has extensive experience in shepherding our clients through psychological custody evaluations and parenting coordination.
In addition, as part of our divorce representation, we will make sure to maximize any financial settlement for our client in order to provide adequate funds to ensure their children will be able to live in the style to which they are accustomed.
We are also experienced in seeking to modify or enforce any existing visitation, child custody, or child support agreements and orders, if necessary. Most commonly, child-related provisions of divorce settlements or decrees are in need of modification when a parent relocates out of state. If it is the custodial parent, this can be a significant issue if the non-custodial parent objects. Relocation issues are an area of jurisprudence and constant flux, and various states have adopted a presumption in favor of relocation or against relocation. Georgia courts maintain a flexible fact-based middle ground.
