Creating a Parenting Plan
Child custody is divided into two different areas: physical custody and legal custody. When it comes to physical and legal custody, the courts attempt to establish close and continuing parent-child relationship and continuity in the child's life to serve the child's best interest. This is defined in the parenting plan.
A parenting plan is an agreement that outlines a child custody arrangement. It notates who has the children on which days, who makes decisions regarding healthcare and education, and what to do in the event of a major change in either parent's situation.
In Georgia, both parents are equally considered for the reasons outlined above, and barring extenuating circumstances, the court will frequently attempt to establish a joint arrangement.
If you or loved ones are involved with any of these issues, we are ready to help you ideally resolve them.
