Custody and Visitation in Georgia
Custody and visitation arrangements vary from one county to another in Georgia. There are three types of custody in Georgia: sole custody, split 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 split and joint custody, parents will share custody of a child or children. In split custody, both parents make decisions for the child or children. In joint custody, 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 Abbott & Abbott, 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.
