The custodial award of a minor child determines both the physical and legal custody of that child. Physical custody refers to where and with which parent the child or children are to live. Legal custody refers to how decisions about the child’s education, religion, medical issues, and participation in activities are made.
Parenting Plan (Visitation)
Beginning on January 1, 2008, all of the aspects of caring for children have been combined into “parenting plans” (sometimes referred to as custody and visitation), which are now required in every divorce granted in Georgia. Developing these parenting plans is an important focus of the work of our law firm, and we strive to create parenting plans that best serve the needs and interests of children.
If both parents can communicate without animosity, child custody and visitation issues can best be resolved through a collaborative divorce or through agreement. We believe you are in a better position to decide what is best for your child (or children) than a judge, who has little opportunity to understand you or your family dynamics.
Of course, if you do not feel a collaborative divorce or negotiated resolution is tenable, we will fight to protect your interests and achieve your goals in court. We have over 45 years of combined experience and a track record of success. For additional information about our qualifications or our team, visit those pages or contact us.
