Protect Your Parental Rights

Child custody and child visitation disputes are complex, deeply emotional and high-stakes for everyone involved. If you’re experiencing the pains of a child custody dispute, I will listen to your needs, understand your concerns and help you reach a solution to your legal problems.

My name is Tommy L. Thigpen, and I work as a family law attorney for the people of Valdosta, Georgia. I understand that many child custody cases start off simple and end up becoming more complex and volatile. I promise to be there for you at every stage of the case.

Do What’s Best For Your Child

Everyone wants to do what’s best for the child, but parents often disagree about what the appropriate arrangement should be. It’s best to be prepared for a dispute before it occurs, if possible, which is why you should hire a child custody lawyer as soon as you think there may be a disagreement. As your attorney I can:

  • Negotiate a fair agreement with your ex and their attorney when emotions are running high and productive communication seems impossible
  • Handle paperwork and manage deadlines if your child custody/visitation dispute goes to court
  • Help you understand your situation and represent you in the courtroom
  • Assist you in petitioning the court for a child custody agreement modification if circumstances change

Whether you are negotiating the agreement terms with your ex or ready to take the matter to court, you can count on me. I can efficiently and effectively address your needs and protect your interests.
