Child custody concerns in Georgia

Child custody is an extremely important aspect of a divorce settlement. Oftentimes, both parents want to be heavily involved in their children’s lives, but custody arrangements do not always allow this. It can be difficult or confusing to learn that you will not have a large role in your child’s upbringing, but legal knowledge and assistance can help you make a better case for why you belong in your child’s life. Since the law varies by state, it is important to be familiar with Georgia’s stance on child custody.

Child support is not a suggestion; it's the legal requirement

A man was recently arrested in Virginia after being pulled over for driving on a closed shoulder. The trooper who pulled the man over took him into custody after he learned that the man was wanted for child support and other charges in Norfolk. Even though this case happened in Virginia, Georgia residents could easily find themselves in a similar position if they fail to pay their child support.

I can no longer make my child support payments. What should I do?

Child support orders are made based on a number of factors affecting the lives of a divorced couple. Both parties may not always believe that the child support order is fair, but it is ultimately up to the discretion of the court in most of these cases, and the courts tend to do what they believe is best for the child. At the same time, it’s important to remember that the order is determined based on factors at the time of divorce, meaning that the support order, much like the factors of life, is subject to change.

We fight for fathers' rights

Child custody is usually one of the most hotly contested topics in a divorce, with both parties wanting to remain as involved as possible in their children’s lives. There are those who believe that men are treated unfairly in custody cases, which could cause concern for some fathers if they are facing divorce. Fortunately, evidence shows that it is better for children to have both parents in their lives through joint custody.
