Child custody can be very complex, and there are several things that the divorced or divorcing couple need to understand. Any couple in the United States, including those in Georgia, must do several things before arriving in court for a child custody hearing.
When a marriage ends, it typically does not end a parent's relationship with the children. You brought the children to this world and they are your responsibility until they become adults. Many Georgia couples will definitely agree with this sentiment, but divorce can be particularly hard on the children as they see parents separate and their lives significantly change. A child may get to stay with one parent while the other parent pays child support for their education, medical and everyday expenses.
