Custody, Visitation and Parenting Time in Canton and Marietta
There are two types of legal custody in Georgia: sole custody and joint custody. Sole custody means one parent is responsible for all of the major decisions in a child's life and the child lives with that parent.
In joint custody, parents will share legal custody of a child or children. Also, the parent the child lives with will make day-to-day decisions.
Parents sometimes worry more about the terminology used rather than the impact a custody decision can have on the children's lives. At The Law Offices of Abbott & Abbott P.C., our attorneys will help you understand the real impact of custody determinations on you and your child's life. With clear information, you will be able to make informed decisions about your future.
The Effect of Custody on Child Support
A child custody agreement will have an effect on child support. While both parents are responsible for the support of their child or children, where the child lives can impact the amount of support each parent is required to provide.
