Child custody handoff facility could lessen domestic violence

For many parents in Georgia that share physical custody of their children, there is a fear that the children's other parent may injure then when they drop the children off as part of a child custody agreement.

A hit-and-run accident left a pregnant woman in the hospital just a week away from her estimated delivery date.

Is it in the best interest to award custody to a parent that makes more money, but has less time to spend with a child? These kinds of questions have long been considered by Georgia judges, but some may start looking at obesity as a factor in determining which parent should have physical custody over the children.
