What a court considers in deciding child custody

When Georgia parents get a divorce, if they cannot reach a decision about child custody and visitation, they might have to go to court. A judge will take a number of factors into consideration when deciding what is in the best interests of the child.

Distribution of student loan debt in divorce

High levels of student loan debt are causing financial difficulties for college graduates in Georgia and throughout the country, and going through a divorce makes this kind of debt even more challenging. Any debt acquired before marriage remains the sole responsibility of the original borrower, but debt taken out during the marriage may be divided between the spouses depending on certain circumstances. Since Georgia is not a community property state, courts will use an equitable distribution model to figure out who pays what.

Common myths regarding non-custodial parents

Lots of divorces in Georgia involve child custody issues. In many cases, one non-custodial parent will not have physical custody of the kids. However, this mother or father may still persuade a judge to grant them legal custody. Many non-custodial parents also have frequent visitation rights and spend ample time with their children.

Divorce advice from friends, family not always reliable

If you are considering ending your marriage, you may feel very alone. After all, you are contemplating ending a relationship that may have lasted for years, and you do not know whether you will make the right choice. These feelings are normal, and it is certainly worthwhile to give your decision its due consideration before jumping into anything.

Making co-parenting work during the summer months

Georgia parents no longer living together often face some unique problems as they attempt to successfully juggle parenting responsibilities. One potentially troublesome time is during the summer months when kids are out of school and their schedules are more flexible. But summer co-parenting doesn't have to be a challenge if parents take the right steps to make such arrangements work.
