Various Possible Child Custody Orders in GA

A child custody order will determine which parent will have physical and legal custody of the child. Generally both types of custody will be shared in some way unless one parent is deemed unfit to have custody of the child. Legal custody gives the parent the right to make decisions in the child's life. Joint legal custody requires parents to work together with these decisions, but one parent will have final decision-making rights regarding medical, religious and education decisions. Physical custody dictates which parent the child will live with. Commonly parents receive joint physical custody where they share equal time with the child.

Completing a Divorce Agreement Quickly and Outside of Court

Going through a divorce can be emotionally draining and stressful. In order to make the process as quick and easy as possible, consider an uncontested divorce or negotiating a settlement agreement. An uncontested divorce requires both parties to cooperate and agree over all divorce issues. While this may prove to be impossible for some spouses, if you are able to maintain an amicable relationship, the process can be much less overwhelming and time consuming. In order to complete an uncontested divorce, you will need to come to an agreement on matters including: child custody, child support, spousal support/ alimony, property division, debt division and all other issues in your divorce. If you are able to agree through negotiations, a marital settlement agreement can be made and signed by the court.
