In Georgia, the law really directs courts on how to decide custody disputes.
So, we have a lot of factors the court has to take into consideration when determining what is in the best interest of the children. Overall, the overriding standard is what is in the best interest of the children.
In order to figure that out, there are a lot of factors:
There are many factors that the court has to take into consideration in a custody case. And once the court takes all those factors into consideration, then they make a decision that they feel is in the best interest of the children.
And of course, it’s important to note that what you think is best for your children, the judge might not think is in the best interest of your children.
So, it’s really important for you to really think about what you want for your children and how you want your life to look. And if you can reach a custody agreement, that usually is better than leaving it in the hands of a judge who you have never met in your life to determine you and your family’s future for the next 18 years.
