Value changes reflect new outcomes in child custody cases

Despite the traditional belief that mothers do better than fathers in child custody matters, the statistics for the nation, including in Georgia, show a dramatic change. Currently, some sources say that both parents are generally equal when it comes to child custody dispositions. According to the consensus of various authors and academics in the field, it appears that the real area of discrimination today in family court is the favoring of those who can afford legal counsel over those who cannot.

Craft an effective parenting plan through child custody mediation

Georgia parents may recognize that one of the realities of getting a divorce is the process of negotiating for child custody. While it may not always be easy to fit the backward and forward shuttling of children into busy schedules, many divorced parents have managed to agree on workable parenting plans. Reaching an agreeable schedule typically requires tolerance and the ability to communicate and compromise. However, many couples have reached a stage where communication is non-existent, and external help may be required to reach suitable agreements with regard to child custody.

Divorce issue centers on custody of future baby by surrogacy

Sherri Shepherd is a co-host of The View on national daytime television. Her three-year marriage to Lamar Sally is on the rocks and the subject of divorce actions filed by both parties. The case has some of the typical bells and whistles that celebrity breakups and divorces can bring to the public eye. This case, however, contains an unusual issue regarding child custody and support that may be important in the developing jurisprudence of child custody law, both nationwide and in Georgia.

Parenting coordinator may assist in child custody and visitation

Custody and visitation in a divorce scenario may be a particularly difficult and challenging proposition for some parents. Whether the parents reside in Georgia or anywhere else, the bitterness and regret that they may feel in the aftermath of a separation and a divorce can be emotionally devastating. In those situations, child custody and visitation interchanges and contacts may be the central setting for the expression of emotionally charged conflicts.
