Savannah Family Law Attorney How is Custody Decided in Georgia Family Courts?

Divorce cases are often tough for children emotionally, and courts go to great lengths to help ensure that they do not feel the blow of a marital split for the rest of their lives. Determining which parent has which responsibility is a difficult issue in some cases, and the courts have to take a large number of factors into consideration before coming to a conclusion. Let's discuss how Georgia's child custody laws work a little more closely.

But I Signed the Birth Certificate!?

Let's talk administrative legitimation. I work with a lot of men who are dads-out-of-wedlock, and are seeking some visitation (or at times custody) rights regarding children they had with women they weren't/aren't married to. We now live in a society where a lot of births happen before the marriage, or sometimes the parents never get married but stay together as a couple. This is now the hip, Hollywood-style of parenting and family-ing.
