Balancing Both Parents’ Rights

The Changing Role Of Fathers

If your divorce involves children, you need to know what your parental rights are. For many years, Georgia courts simply awarded child custody to the mother and made the father pay child support. Today, the mother is no longer automatically awarded child custody in a divorce. Judges today are much more open to awarding more visitation time, and even primary custody, to fathers. The judicial system now treats divorces in a gender-neutral way and looks at each situation to determine who is the better parent to take care of the children.

How Courts Determine Custody

Marietta parents’ rights attorney William C. Gentry has forcefully and effectively fought for his clients at custody hearings and has helped numerous clients obtain primary custody of their children. When deciding who to award custody to, the court will look at things such as:

  • Who has been the child’s primary caregiver in the past?
  • Does the father (or mother) have a plan for being the primary caregiver going forward?
  • What is in the best interest of the child — living with the father or the mother, or is true joint custody in the child’s best interests?
