Gainesville Child Custody Attorneys

Helping You Maintain Your Parental Rights And Have Time With Your Kids

When you get a divorce or your relationship with your co-parent ends, you will have to talk about who gets custody of the children. This can be a very contentious subject that causes a lot of hurt feelings. Georgia state law requires that each parent have time with his or her children. You may need a lawyer to figure out how to settle this debate.

At Weaver Law Firm, we understand how hard this can be on you and your kids. Our attorneys are very sensitive to your circumstances. We will help make sure your parental rights are respected, whether you're seeking custody of your children or you expect to be the noncustodial parent. We serve clients in Gainesville and all over North Georgia for child custody issues in divorce as well as for parents who are not married or who have paternity concerns.

How Is Custody Determined In Georgia?

All decisions regarding custody are determined "in the best interests of the child." Factors in this decision can include:

  • Each parent's work schedule
  • Each parent's living situation
  • Educational opportunities
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Concerns of domestic abuse

Once we have determined which of you will have custody of the children, we will work with you, your spouse or co-parent, and his or her lawyer to set up a parenting plan. This will outline how much visitation time the noncustodial parent has with the kids, a schedule of when the children are with each parent, and arrangements for special occasions and holidays, as well as anything else the two of you want to include. We will submit this plan to the courts, along with your settlement agreement, for approval.

If you and your spouse or co-parent cannot agree on who gets custody of the kids or on a parenting plan, we will aggressively represent your interests in court.
