Child Custody & Visitation

Fighting for the Rights of Parents and Children in Georgia

When you have children, custody and visitation plays an important role in your divorce. You must devise a parenting plan that protects your rights and the best interests of your child. At Daniels & Rothman in Athens, Georgia, we fight hard to protect the interests of parents and children going through a divorce.

Obtaining an Appropriate Child Custody and Visitation Order

Coming up with a workable parenting schedule may be one of the most difficult things faced by divorcing parents in Georgia. This schedule is essential to building a safe and stable environment for your child. The primary goal of the court is to create a custody and visitation order that is in the best interests of a child. A parenting schedule will address the following issues:

  • Legal custody - This award is the right to make decisions about a child's medical, educational, religious and extracurricular activities. This can be awarded jointly or solely.
  • Physical custody - This award determines where a child should live and can be awarded either jointly or solely. It can also influence the amount of child support awarded.
  • Visitation - Generally, if one parent is not awarded child custody, he or she has the right to visitation.

Our firm will work with you to determine the best strategy to take to protect your right to custody and/or visitation. Greg Daniels, one of our firm's founding lawyers, will address such issues as communication problems, transportation concerns and other important issues faced by families going through a divorce.
