How Do Georgia Courts Determine Custody?

In Georgia, neither the mother nor the father has an advantage in court. Judges try to award joint custody whenever possible. That said, the court will consider a variety of factors for every case. Some of these factors include:

  • The parent-child relationship
  • The location of each parent’s home
  • Each parent’s ability to provide for the child’s needs
  • Each parent’s willingness to nurture the child’s relationship with the co-parent
  • The presence or history of substance abuse or domestic violence

Your family situation is unlike that of any other family. There is no clear-cut formula that the court uses for every case. It will consider your unique circumstances as it considers the best interests of your children.

Custody and visitation arrangements are easily the most complicated part of any divorce. If you need counsel for asset distribution, LGBTQ issues or any other aspect of family law, we can assist you.
