As a parent, your top priority is the well-being of your child. However, during a divorce, child custody can quickly become a major source of conflict. A child is not a bargaining chip.

How Are Custodial Orders Determined?

The question of “Who gets custody of the children?” can be incredibly difficult to answer for divorcing couples. Let Shawn safeguard your child’s interests in a custody and visitation dispute. Physical custody and visitation are legal terms defining with whom a child will live and how time with the other parent will be divided.

In Georgia, laws do not favor either the mother or the father. Court decisions are based on a child’s relationship with each parent, as demonstrated by their attorneys. Determining what is in the best interests of the child is the primary objective in all child custody cases. In some situations, this may even mean granting custody to a petitioning grandparent.
