Child Custody And Visitation Archives

Georgia men fear losing custody

When two parents ultimately decide to have a divorce, it is often the father who goes in worried about how much time they will get to spend with their child after the settlement. Many couples often have the notion that the courts favor the mother and assign them more custody while having the father pay for child support.

Enforcing a divorce decree when your ex refuses to follow it

After divorce, you may run into a common situation where your ex does not follow the terms of the divorce decree. The divorce decree or custody order is a legally binding court order, and failure to follow it is a violation. The party violating the order may be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. However, it is important to remember that a contempt action is a mechanism that applies pressure on your ex to follow the order, and is not meant to be a method of punishment. 

How are child custody decisions made?

Parents entering the divorce process likely have many questions about child custody and how their child custody concerns will be worked out. Parents can put some of their concerns at ease by understanding the child custody process as much as possible and what it is based on.
