Child Custody & Visitation

About Child Custody & Visitation

With You for Every Step

Child custody and visitation are often the hardest issues to resolve in a divorce. That’s why at Kimberly Dunham, we serve as your lifeline during these proceedings. Our compassionate approach provides support in this emotional time and the reassurance of our years of experience in family law that we can navigate the intricacies of custody arrangements with your child’s best interests at heart. 

Understanding the nuances of custody in South Carolina is crucial. It’s a combination of legal and physical considerations. Legal custody involves major decision-making on education, extracurricular, medical, and religious issues. On the other hand, physical custody concerns the placement schedule for the minor child/children. At Kimberly Dunham, we ensure that you are well informed about both these aspects, whether we’re developing a settlement agreement or handling your contested litigation.

If you can negotiate an agreement about custody and visitation with your former spouse or partner, there may be no need for contested litigation. If the dispute goes to court, the judge will look at various factors to determine what is in the child’s best interest.

If you are going through a custody dispute and feel overwhelmed, don’t despair. With over twenty-five years of experience, Kimberly Dunham can help you mediate a decision with a former spouse or partner or, if necessary, take up your case in court, giving you peace of mind during this trying time.
