Many people may assume that mothers are always more likely to get child custody than fathers, but this is not the case. Legally, a father is equally entitled to custody. There are a few factors a Georgia judge may take into account when considering a child custody case.

Rights of unmarried fathers

Georgia children are much more likely to be born to fathers who are not married to their mothers than in previous decades. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, while just over 18 percent of children were born to unmarried parents in 2007, that figure has more than doubled to 40 percent around the country.

While there a number of reasons for this, it does not diminish the fact that countless fathers desperately want to be in their children's lives and seek custody and parenting time as a result. However, many fathers feel as if they are treated as second-class citizens for seeking equal parenting time, especially if they have been intentionally shunned from their children's lives by vindictive mothers.
