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.

Protecting business assets from loss during divorce

Owning and operating a successful business is a lifetime goal of many Georgia residents. Once a business is up and running, the goal shifts to preserving that success, and growing the business as time passes. For many spouses, protecting business assets from loss in the event of a divorce is a priority; others do not think about these matters until the need arises, which is often too late. The best time to shield business assets from property division losses is prior to walking down the aisle.

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.
