Fulton County Child Custody
Fulton County is one of the more efficient court systems in Georgia. This is largely due to the required 30-day status conference. These status hearings are monthly and update the judge or judicial officer handling your child custody or divorce case on the most recent status of issues including:
- Financial responsibilities and support
- Child custody/visitation
- Parenting plans
- Possession/use of personal and real property
Parents may also discuss issues on:
- Guardian ad litem
- Psychological evaluations
- Cooperative parenting education
The benefit of this is that it helps keep the process moving forward by allowing parties to communicate effectively and efficiently with the court. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement on disputed issues at this time, then a temporary hearing will occur right away or be set for a date soon thereafter.
The Law Offices of Abbott & Abbott P.C. is very experienced with the local Fulton County court systems and can help you reach a child custody agreement that is in the best interests of both you and your child.
