Medically fragile children may need special child custody orders

Parenting a child who has special needs is difficult, especially when those needs are intensive. A complex medical diagnosis or a challenging mental health condition can really put pressure on the parents as they try to ensure that the child's best interests are considered with every decision.

Be prepared for mediation in child custody cases

Child custody cases are often resolved much faster when the parents put their differences aside and work together to come up with the terms. This is sometimes done without the need for a third-party mediator; however, it is nice to know that a mediator is there when you need one.

Fathers in Georgia are at a disadvantage for child custody

Fathers in Georgia are at a marked disadvantage when it comes to child custody. As many states are moving toward encouraging equal time spent with the mother and father, this state isn't really doing this, which means that dads aren't getting the time they need to forge strong relationships with their children.

You can take steps to protect your parenting time

Learning to choose your battles carefully is an important aspect of sharing custody of your child with his or her other parent. Especially in the beginning, it is very common for both parents to find it very difficult to abide by all the provisions of their custody agreement and parenting plan, and this is to be expected in some form or another. However, when one parent's behavior results in a loss of parenting time by the other parent or negatively affects the other parent's relationship with the child, the courts may see this as parenting time interference, and may punish the offending parent accordingly.
