Child Custody Archives

Child custody modifications could be in the future for Gosselin

Reality television fans in Georgia may be familiar with the show "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Off the air for many years now, the reality TV show focused on a couple who welcomed sextuplets into their family. Viewers had a front row seat to the trials and tribulations of a house full of kids, as well as increasing tensions between a husband and wife. Eventually, the couple divorced and began what would be a long and contentious child custody battle.

Collaboration, child custody and domestic violence

Leaving a marriage where domestic violence has occurred can be a nightmare, and is a step that many victims put off for years. When the time comes to finally pull the plug and start a new life, victims of domestic violence may be fearful of a nasty child custody fight. When considering how to proceed, it may be worthwhile to consider collaboration as a divorce option. Collaboration can seem like an impossible goal to achieve when working with an abusive spouse, but the way that the process works can actually be beneficial for some Georgia victims and their children.

Another state considers legislating child custody changes

Many Georgia readers are aware of a growing trend regarding how custody cases are handled in family courts across the nation. There is a distinct move toward a system under which shared custody would be a starting point for all cases. Currently, one state is considering legislation that would require family courts to begin all child custody matters with the presumption that 50/50 shared custody is the best possible outcome.

Program seeks to restore parents' child custody rights

Struggling through drug or alcohol addiction is a scenario that many Georgia families face. One common result of addiction is a loss of parental rights. In many cases, parents lose their child custody rights when their children are placed into protective custody by state authorities. That can be heartbreaking for both parents and children alike, and is an outcome that a court system in one state is trying to avoid.

Resolution looks at child custody and domestic violence

When most Georgia parents face a custody battle, they are squared off against the other parent in a struggle over who will get the greater share of parenting time. That can be a difficult set of circumstances, but it is one that all parties will move through relatively unscathed. For some families, however, an environment of domestic violence makes child custody matters a far more difficult path to navigate.

Child custody case centered on parents' low IQ

There are a number of ways that parents can lose custody of their children. State authorities will step in if a child is being abused, neglected or has been abandoned. Outside of those matters, however, most parents feel comfortable that the state will not interfere with their parental rights. In fact, losing child custody rights to the state is not even a concern that registers with most Georgia parents. Unfortunately, there are cases in which children are removed from loving homes even when there is no evidence of abuse or neglect.

Georgia families consider sole and joint child custody agreements

In addition to the property division and other aspects of the divorce process, these parents also have to create a child custody arrangement that meets their child's best interest.
