Standards of Determining Child Custody
In the state of Georgia, the court will appoint custody of the child based on what is in the best interest of the child. Many things are taken into consideration about what is best for the child, including visitation with the other parent. In some cases, each parent might be living in different areas, further complicating the legal process of determining custody. No matter your situation, make sure you don't try to fight for custody on your own.
- Common factors for determining child custody:
- The environment of each parent's home
- The mental and physical health of each parent
- The child's emotional tie to each parent
- Each parent's ability to provide basic necessities to the child
- History of physical or substance abuse by either parent
- Criminal histories of each parent
- The willingness of the parent to have a relationship with the non-custodial parent
- Familiarity with the child's health, social, and educational needs
