The Decision - Your First Step Towards Gaining Custody of a Grandchild(ren)
Georgia recognizes the rights of grandparents to seek visitation, partial physical custody, or primary physical custody of their minor grandchild or grandchildren.
Georgia recognizes the rights of grandparents to seek visitation, partial physical custody, or primary physical custody of their minor grandchild or grandchildren. The grandparents must prove that the requested custody would be in the best interests of the minor grandchild or grand kids and would not interfere with the relationship between the parent and the minor child. Moreover, if a grandparent is seeking primary physical custody, they must prove that the minor child would be harmed if they remain in the care of their legal parent. The decision to seek custody of a grandchild(ren) can be the first step to securing a successful future for your grandchild.
