Hold On To Your Family
The laws of Georgia and South Carolina always put the interests of the children first. Courts in both states will focus on your children's needs and will attempt to structure all custody arrangements to serve those interests. Courts often want both parents to play an active, loving role in their children's lives. We will help you show the judge how you will benefit and care for your children. identify that all decisions be made in the best interests of the child. This isn't going to favor either parent. Instead, the goal is to have both parents play a part in the lives of the children. A few of the factors that go into child custody decisions are:
- Who has been the primary caregivers
- Work schedules of parents
- Ability of the parents to cooperate in co-parenting
- Any history of physical/mental abuse
- Substance abuse by parents
- Mental health issues of parents and/or children
It is important that you seek legal counsel to establish a parenting plan and custody arrangement that best suits your needs and, most importantly, the needs of your children.
