Protecting Family Relationships For Military Parents
Active duty service members can have difficulty with a regular schedule of seeing their children. Particularly if you are deployed, you may not see your children for extended periods. Even upon your return, medical conditions can affect your ability to spend time with your children, including post-traumatic stress disorder and physical injuries.
In Georgia, as in all states, courts determine who obtains child custody according to the best interests of the child. In some cases, this can result in a situation in which service members must overcome some obstacles to obtain joint physical custody or sole custody.

Going Into Inactive Duty? You May Need A Child Support Modification.
Once active duty ends, many members of the armed services look to increase their education or find a job in the private sector that provides career opportunities. However, the transition can be difficult, and going to school takes away from the ability to earn money. And it can be difficult for many veterans to find private sector jobs.
However, child support obligations do not change simply because you have been put on inactive duty. You must proactively petition the court to have the amount changed. At Faulhaber Family Law, LLC, we can help you in your petition.
