Helping you move forward after divorce

Child custody can be one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. Derrick H. Muhammad is dedicated to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. Attorney Muhammad represents families in Georgia in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

Advantages of mediation

Children can be well served when parents maintain an amicable relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the often turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. Derrick H. Muhammad assists his clients develop mediation strategies that often  help craft a resolution without the necessity of a trial.

Supporting litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations can fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. Child custody attorney Derrick H. Muhammad’s approach to litigation may enable you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
