We have success stories from both mothers and fathers. Whether you want primary physical custody or maximum visitation/parenting time, our child custody attorneys know how to get you the results you want.

Under Georgia law, there are two types of custody:

  • Physical custody refers to the physical placement of the child day to day. The primary physical custodian is the parent with the most amount of time. The secondary physical custodian is the parent who exercises visitation or parenting time.
  • Legal custody is the right to make major decisions regarding the child. When awarded joint legal custody, both parents share the responsibility of major decision-making. In the event of a disagreement, one parent is issued final decision making when it comes to religious, medical, educational, and extracurricular activities.

Although it is a common misconception that mothers are favored over fathers, the concept of shared parenting has really evolved over the last several years. Today, neither parent is favored over the other. Both fathers and mothers can be considered a proper fit to be the primary parent.
