Threats to Take Son
I was an emotional wreck because my ex had threatened to take my son out of the state against my will. I thought because he was my son's father that he could do it too. Scott informed me of my rights that I did not even know that I had. He immediately sprang into action and got an emergency order from the court. He handled everything quickly and attentively while reassuring me through the process. I really am grateful for all that he did for my son and I. The end result was totally in my favor. I highly recommend him and thank him for his representation.
My wife made false accusation throughout a lengthy divorce and withheld my children from me... brilliant at deposition (where he utterly tore her apart) and exposed her lies with evidence he guided me to gather prior to our case....extremely detail-oriented and knows the law well...[in] the final trial Mr. Shaw was able to counter everything that was thrown at us through ...evidence and facts. Divorce is a difficult change, process and battle but having Mr. Shaw in your corner definitely helps. I can wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Shaw.
What a Relief
It was a relief mentally and emotionally to have an attorney appear on behalf of my son and I that into court prepared and knew the facts of the case and the applicable law and present it all in a coherent fashion. Thank you again! --- William M.
No B.S. Attitude
Mr. Shaw is one heck of an attorney and his no B.S. attitude is what won me over in the first place. --- Jason P.
Won Custody of My Kids
Mr. Shaw won custody for me of my little boy and teenage daughter, despite my now ex-wife influencing my daughter to testify at trial and to elect to reside with her, and Mr. Shaw cut through this chafe at trial, through the B.S. and distortions, destroyed my ex’s case, and I have custody of my two kids as a very happy father. --- Mark S.

Don't Weaken Your Georgia Child Custody Case
While all Georgia child custody cases are different, there are some common tips that everyone should follow when involved in a child custody proceeding. In fact, following these guidelines can be essential to winning your case:
- Don't start a new relationship. Try to resolve your divorce before you move on to a new relationship. Otherwise, you are likely to create confusion and stress for your children and only make a custody battle more difficult. Your ex will do everything to paint your new significant other in a negative light.
- Don't undermine your spouse’s authority with your children. While you may want to divorce your spouse, he or she is still a parent to your children – you are the one who picked him or her out. When you try to undermine your spouse’s authority or talk bad about him or her to your children, you are only encouraging misbehavior and increased stress during a time that is already emotional and difficult for your children.
- Don't use your children as an intermediary with your spouse. Your children are not messengers between you and your estranged spouse. Make visitation or holiday arrangements with your spouse, not with your children. Putting them in the middle only puts more stress on your children and forces them to deal with adult issues that they shouldn’t be worrying about.
- Don't disregard court orders. Whether you like or agree with a court order or not, you have to follow it. When you fail to follow court orders, you teach your children that it’s okay not to follow the rules, and you risk angering the judge. This will not be helpful to your custody case in the long run.
Engaging in a child custody battle can be a complex process that involves many significant legal, financial, and emotional issues. Consult with a qualified Georgia child custody lawyer who can guide you throughout the process and help you get the results you want.
