Augusta Child Custody Attorneys For Fathers

Under Georgia law, there are two types of child custody. Full or primary custody allows the child to spend most of his or her time with one parent who gets the final say in major decisions about the child's life. Joint custody gives both parents decision-making power and scheduled time with the child.

Judges make decisions about child custody based on what arrangement they believe best serves the interests of the child. They may consider many factors in making this decision, including:

  • Each parent's work schedule and availability
  • Which parent has previously been the child's primary caretaker
  • Which parent is most likely to respect the other parent's visitation rights
  • Whether either parent has been physically or emotionally abusive toward the child or other parent
  • Whether either parent has shown signs of drug or alcohol abuse

We Listen, Respond And Resolve

At Claridge Law Firm, our attorneys have been working together to protect paternal rights for eight years. We have found success representing fathers because we understand their challenges and work hard to help them succeed.

Sometimes fathers have to contend with the social bias that a child's mother is the best person to have child custody. We know that stereotype is not always true. There are many reasons that a child may be better off living with his or her father. We can help you present a strong case to the court and show why you deserve custody of your child.
