At the law office of Derek L. Hall, PC, our experience in the field of family law allows us to understand the complexity of these cases and to focus on a personalized approach to every issue.

Child Custody

Child custody are primary family law matters in which we commonly represent clients. Whether your child custody case arises from a divorce or not, we can advocate for you and ensure that your voice is heard in court. Sections 93-5-23 and 93-5-24 of the Mississippi Code are the laws responsible for the custody of children and child custody orders. When the court makes decisions about child custody, it will focus on an arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.

A judge can take into account many different factors in deciding what is in the child’s best interest, including but not limited to:

  • Existing relationship between the parent(s) and the child;
  • Ability for the parent(s) to provide necessary care for the child;
  • Economic stability of each parent; and
  • Ability for each parent to guide the child’s emotional and ethical development.

Taking Care Of The Kids

Many of our divorce clients also face issues involving child custody, and other issues involving children. We offer compassionate guidance for these sensitive issues and will help resolve disputes as quickly as possible. Protecting your family is a top priority at our firm.

Adoption and Visitation in Mississippi

In addition to child custody matters, we often receive questions about adoption and visitation. We regularly assist clients who are seeking to adopt a child, focusing on the best way to obtain a termination of parental rights from the child’s biological father while also keeping the child’s emotional and psychological interests in focus.

We also frequently help grandparents who are seeking visitation rights. In some cases, often when one parent passes away, the grandparents will seek visitation. If the grandparents can prove that they have a viable relationship with their grandchildren, the court may grant visitation, assuming that it is in the best interests of the grandchildren.

Understanding The Divorce Process

The divorce process can be complex. Given the complexities that can arise with property division, division of assets and addressing child custody issues — we make it a priority to act quickly and efficiently when representing our clients. We gather the facts, look at different options we can pursue and do what we need to do in order to make sure our clients’ rights are protected. We help with all parts of the divorce process, including:

  • Determining equitable property division
  • Dividing debts
  • Dividing a business
  • Determining which parent is best to have custody of the children
