What Are My Rights?
In Georgia, there is no preference for custody based on the sex of the parent (even for children of a tender age). For both mothers and fathers, the court will look at several different issues when determining custody, including:
- Parents involvement in the child's life
- Basic responsibilities including doctor visits, fixing meals, buying clothes, etc.
- School tardiness and absences
The courts will also look at who has taken responsibility for the child thus far, who can provide the most stable environment and who will encourage a mutually beneficial relationship with the other parent. Promoting a beneficial relationship between both parents is a key issue in many custody matters.
Resolving Custody Disputes
Child custody disputes can be resolved in a variety of ways. The courts encourage an amicable resolution to be reached through arbitration, mediation or settlement agreements. As an experienced mediator, attorney Marian Weeks is skilled at resolving custody disputes and will work with you to find the most appropriate path to take to resolve your case.
