The opioid crisis and child custody

It is hard to find anyone in the United States that the opioid epidemic has not in some way touched. Sadly, the epidemic continues to grow in Georgia as the death toll mounts. Among the biggest losers of the epidemic are the children born of addicted mothers. But there is hope. Some of these mothers are inspired by their children to seek and maintain recovery through child custody.

Child custody: What to do when modifications are required

One of the biggest challenges divorced couples in Georgia can face is determining who will have custody of the children. It is difficult enough when both parents reside in the same geographical area. But what happens when one parent needs to relocate for a job, or to care for ailing or elderly parents, or for some other unforeseen reason? In this instance, modifications will need to be made to the existing child custody agreement.

Child custody and unmarried parents

When a child loses his or her parents the resulting trauma can be devastating to everyone involved. If the deceased couple were married and the parents of the surviving children, child custody of the children will often go to a surviving family member who is able to care for them. But what if the parents were not married and there is another parent in the picture from a previous relationship? Such is the child custody case of a gentleman in Columbus, Georgia.

Child custody and sports

When parents share custody of their children, it would be logical to assume that they share the same concern for their children's well-being and will make decisions based on the best interests of the children. But what if they disagree in Georgia? What if one parent sees participation in a sport as being too dangerous and the other parent does not share the same concern in a child custody case?

Child custody in 2018 -- no more one size fits all

Once upon a time, if parents divorced, parents would live in separate places and the children would go back and forth between the two homes according to a pre-arranged schedule. This could cause many stressors in the new family dynamic in Georgia. The stressors could include one parent, usually the mother, getting more time with the children, one parent having more influence on the children, and the children being caught in the middle. Child custody in 2018 can look very different.

Child custody - what's best for the child?

Divorce is never easy. It is especially difficult when children are involved. The younger the children, the more complicated it can be. Even in a friendly divorce in Georgia, working out child custody arrangements can be a major challenge and an increased stressor where none is needed.

Georgia man may lose child custody after abuse allegations

When one is accused of abusing his or her own child, authorities and child protection agencies won't take it lightly. Allegations of abuse and/or neglect of a child in Georgia may lead to the loss of child custody for the accused parent. The removal of a child from one's home may be temporary while investigations are underway, but this can become permanent if the investigation is followed by charges and convictions. One local man recently found himself in such a situation.

Woman who broke child custody agreement may be in Georgia

When child custody arrangements are ordered by a court, it is expected that all parties involved will abide by the court's decision and follow the rules. A judge's orders -- in cases where the court's interference is necessary -- is always going to be based on the best interest of the children. However, this does not mean that parents and family members will always agree with the outcome. When one does not stick to a child custody plan in Georgia, there may be consequences to face.

Mom could lose child custody due to placing children in danger

In Georgia and across the country, most parents can't imagine having to worry about the state removing their children from their care. For the typical parent, having control of the lives and decisions involving one's children is something likely taken for granted. One mother's child custody was taken from her after her landlord entered her home and noticed allegedly unsafe circumstances for the children present. The mother was not in the home at the time.

Child custody: Speaking with children about the end of a marriage

While the end of a marriage can be a stressful period for everyone involved, it may be especially challenging for children. Parents in Georgia may wish to safeguard their kids throughout this process by attempting to reach a child custody agreement with their best interests at heart. While looking to their future could be crucial, a parent may find it just as important to speak with his or kids about present concerns as well.
