We Protect Fathers In Child Custody Cases
Many fathers assume that courts will favor mothers in child custody cases. However, Georgia courts are just as likely to award child custody to a father as a mother. At The Siemon Law Firm, our lawyers have successfully obtained primary residential child custody for fathers in situations when that was an appropriate outcome.
Primary Custody Often Goes To The Primary Caretaker, Regardless Of Gender
Georgia laws with respect to issues such as marital property division, spousal support and child custody are gender neutral. In deciding custody, the courts consider specific factors, such as who has been the primary caretaker in the past. Examples of evidence may include:
- Which parent gets the child ready for school?
- Which parent takes care of the child when he or she is sick?
- Which parent takes the child to parent-teacher conferences and doctor’s appointments?
- Which parent helps the child with his or her homework?
Courts will also consider factors such as the lifestyles of the parents and evidence of past child or spousal abuse.
If you are committed to accepting the responsibility to nurture and raise your child, our fathers’ rights lawyers will be your advocate in the courtroom whether you are seeking an initial custody order or are involved in a child custody dispute. We help fathers obtain primary residential custody as well as expanded visitation rights.
