Visitation transportation arrangements in a custody agreement

Last updated on April 8, 2021

When parents in Georgia file for a divorce, one of the most critical parts of the process is the creation of the custody order. This order could entail everything from educational and religious decisions to how the child is transported from one parent to the other. Unfortunately, visitation transportation is often not given the proper attention, and there is where problems arise. Thus the following includes a few points to keep in mind when constructing your visitation transportation agreement.

Location matters

When it comes to drop-off locations, you’re going to be presented with a specific place by the courts or make arrangements with your ex-spouse. Options can include public areas or even the residency of the other parent. Note that the agreement should always include what is best for the child. This usually means something that does not completely disrupt their daily schedule or cause unnecessary stress on them.

Unsafe or tense drop-offs

When a couple decides to separate, they are doing so because they no longer wish to be together. Often, the process of divorce will flame an already tense situation that can cause both parents to feel hate for each other. This can make visitation transportation that much more difficult and even lead to placing stress on the child. In such situations, it’s generally best to agree to meet at a neutral location such as a police station. You ask your local family court clerk for more information regarding neutral locations.

When work gets in the way

If one parent’s career requires them to travel often, this can cause a few issues in the amount of time they get to spend with their child. It is recommended to speak with both your attorney and your ex-spouse to rearrange visitation agreements. After all, having one or two quality days with your child is better than a few hours every other day.

Unfortunately, not every divorce is going to be easy. This is why it’s so important to have an experienced attorney by your side during the process. Doing so may provide you and your child the best possible outcome.
