An Attorney Offering A Smart, Effective Approach To Family Law
Divorce is a very difficult experience for most people, even under the best circumstances. Because of this, you need to work with an attorney you can trust and feel comfortable with – someone with the skills and experience to guide you during this uncertain time.
I am attorney Heather George Myers. For over 12 years, I’ve been representing clients in the Greenwood area as they work through the challenges of divorce, child custody, and other family law issues. My practice is focused on finding smart, practical, and amicable solutions that promote long-term financial stability and well-being.
At my firm, Heather L. George Myers, Attorney at Law, I am ready to help you with all necessary aspects of your divorce, such as:
- Property division (including retirement assets and the marital residence)
- Allocation of marital debt
- Divorce financial planning
- Spousal maintenance (alimony), when appropriate
- Child Custody
- Child support
- Post-divorce estate planning or modifications
Each client and case is unique, and I’m here to help with all legal matters relevant to your case.
Seeking A More Peaceful Resolution? Mediation May Be Right For You.
Divorce is often described using terms like “battle” and “contentious,” but things don’t have to be this way. Traditionally, divorce was resolved through litigation, which is not an appropriate venue for many couples who feel they can negotiate peacefully with one another.
Thankfully, alternatives to litigation are becoming commonplace, including divorce mediation. This is when a divorcing couple sits down with a neutral third-party mediator and negotiates the terms of their divorce and all aspects related to it. The mediator doesn’t make decisions or take sides. Instead, she or he keeps the discussion moving forward so that the two parties can reach their own agreement.
In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a certified mediator. In cases where I am not representing either client, I can be hired as a mediator (by the consent of both parties) or appointed to this role by the court.
Couples going through mediation are not required to have their own attorneys, but it is often a good idea to hire one because you can get case-specific guidance from someone who is primarily concerned with your best interests. When I am representing a client who is going through mediation, my role is to offer legal advice and support throughout the process.
Child Custody Guidance From A Court-Entrusted Legal Professional
I am deeply committed to the well-being of children in family law matters, and my legal credentials reflect that commitment. I often serve as guardian ad litem in contested child custody cases and can also serve as a parent coordinator. Experience in these roles make me especially well-suited to guide my own clients through their difficult custody decisions in divorce matters.
