Skilled Guidance To Determine Child Custody And Support
Raising a child can be challenging, both financially and because of the investment of time that it requires. Georgia’s laws attempt to divide the time and financial responsibilities equally, depending on how many resources each parent has available. However, formulas can only present one perspective and it’s essential to work with a legal advocate who can give the court a true picture of what your life looks like to determine what’s best for your family.
Residents throughout the state have worked closely with Williams & Pine, LLC, for years to help determine their family’s future. We understand that you want to do what’s best for your child, and we can help you make those decisions based on your reality, not on a formula provided by state laws.
Custody Laws In Georgia
A child’s preferences to determine their custody arrangement may carry weight after the age of 14 in Georgia. At that age, a child may determine which parent they would prefer to live with, although a judge may still overrule their choice. Additionally, parents may be granted different legal custody than physical custody. For example, if a parent travels frequently because of their job, they may not receive physical custody, but they may receive legal custody, meaning that they are able to make decisions about their child’s religion, education and other decisions, even though the child doesn’t live with them.
Georgia has very specific laws regarding how child custody and support should be determined after a divorce, and it’s important to work with an attorney regarding your family’s specific situation. They will be able to help you determine what’s in the best interest of your child and how best to advocate for your own interests.
