Child custody may be difficult for parents with disabilities

When parents in Marietta divorce, one of the biggest challenges is determining who will have primary custody of the children. Assuming both parents want physical custody of the children, it is often up to the courts to decide which parent's home will be the primary place of residence. These decisions are based on the best interests of the children, but what exactly does that mean? Can parents with disabilities provide for the best interests of their children? Sadly, many courts have ruled that they can't.

It is undeniable that people over 50 in Marietta are divorcing at higher rates than they were 20 years ago. And, it is not just in Georgia that these so-called gray divorces are on the rise. The number of people who divorced after age 50 leaped from approximately 4.9 divorces per 1,000 married individuals in 1990 to 10 divorces per 1,000 married people. This number is significant because it indicates a need to focus on issues addressing divorces at any age, not just young and middle-aged couples.

Pets aren't children, so how can we share custody after divorce?

For many individuals in Georgia, divorce requires compromise. There is rarely ever a spouse who will get everything he or she wants and it is important to remember that both husbands and wives will need to give and take before they appear before a Marietta family court judge. One of the more contentious battles couples will be dealing with is how to share custody of a pet.

Divorce not always a simple process in two countries
