Grant Program promotes fatherhood in custody arrangements

It would be wonderful if custody disputes were always easy and both parents parted amicably and agreed to maintain a good relationship for the sake of their children, but this simply isn’t the case. When a marriage ends in divorce, parents can sometimes have feelings of anger or resentment toward their former spouses, and this derision can sometimes cause a rift between a child and his or her parent.

There is relief for fathers who are being or have been denied child custody and they do not necessarily have to struggle alone. There are groups that aim to help fathers reconnect with their children, thanks in large part to the Responsible Fatherhood Grant Program. The program offers grants to groups like Faith in Fathers, which help fathers reconnect with children that they have been unable to see due to circumstances beyond their control.

While there are many options for fathers to reconnect with their children, the best method is not to be separated from children in the first place. In Georgia, this matter is mostly handled by the court’s discretion, but parents can make a case for their parental eligibility, and the courts can also take the children’s preferences into account.

Fortunately for parents seeking custody, the state of Georgia tends to lean toward keeping shared parenting time equal, but this is not always the case. Enlisting the help of strong legal counsel can ensure that you get a custody arrangement that is fair to you and your circumstances and keeps the best interests of your child paramount.
