Leading Divorce Attorney in Savannah
The breakup of a marriage can be tricky business, as it requires two people to come to an agreement on how to divide earnings, possessions and even time with children. If you’re going through this difficult situation, it’s important to have an experienced family law lawyer represent your interests in court. At Donaldson & Bell Attorneys at Law, our partners have more than 50 years of combined experience, and we've helped our Savannah clients in a variety of areas:

- Child custody, visitation, support and modification of agreements

Family Law Representation for Child Custody, Visitation & Grandparent Rights
Divorce can be especially difficult on children, who are often asked to choose the parent they would rather live with. While Georgia prefers that parents agree to joint custody whenever possible, the court will always act with the interests of the kids in mind by requiring mandatory parenting classes and overriding unsuitable child visitation agreements. When calculating support payments, officials account for factors like gross income and obligations to other children. With so much on the line, it’s always a good idea to seek legal advice before proceeding.
While parents may be the primary caregivers for minor children, it’s important to understand that grandparents might want a presence in their lives. If you feel that you’re being denied visitation with your grandchildren, a family law attorney could help you get the visits afforded to you by the state of Georgia.
