Dividing Parenting Time & Visitation in GA
Georgia laws favor retaining children’s relationships with both parents
following a divorce. Visitation allows the non-custodial parent the right
to see and spend time with the children as a parent. Unfortunately, there
are many obstacles can limit one’s ability to fully act as a parent.
That is when it may be necessary to petition the courts for a remedy.

appropriately, we urge you to

Creating a Parenting Plan for Visitation
You and the other parent have to make sure you are on the same page when
it comes to how you wish to share responsibility for the children. Although
you and the other parent might not always agree or get along on the game
plan, the idea for the parenting plan is to ensure that your child’s
needs are looked after first and foremost.
Factors that may be used in considering visitation:
- The child’s preferences
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- The child’s relationship with the community and school
- Each parent’s current living situation
- Each parent’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being
- Each parent’s ability to care for the child
- Each parent’s personal lifestyle
The courts will always choose what is in the child’s best interests.
Therefore, if the evidence presents that one parent has a history of drug
abuse, for example, they may not be viewed as favorably when it comes
time to make a plan for visitation. For this reason, it is important that
you consult with our Georgia family law attorneys regarding your case.
We can help determine the right course of action based on your personal
circumstances and ensure you get the outcome that you most deserve.
