Types of Child Custody

Georgia has two primary types of child custody: physical and legal. Usually, the child lives with the parent designated as the primary physical custodian more than 51 percent of the time. The secondary physical custodian parent usually has parenting time less than 50 percent of the time. In a joint legal custody situation, the parents share legal and physical responsibility for the child. The parents make decisions together about schools, medical care and religious upbringing. Ultimately, all custody decisions are made with your child's best interests in mind. Once established, child custody orders can be modified in some circumstances.

Preserve Your Visitation Rights

Visitation is generally granted to the noncustodial parent to make sure the child will have a good relationship with him or her. If you are the noncustodial parent, we work to ensure that you get the most time possible with your child so that the relationship can continue. Hiring an experienced child custody and visitation lawyer is the best way to protect your parental rights.
