“Parisa had represented me to protect my rights as a father
and without her consistent best effort during my case I would not be able
to spend any time with my son. I was able to accomplish joint legal and
physical custody when 90% of fathers in Georgia have no physical custody.”
“I think The Herrin Law Firm is the best choice for this type of
case in any given situation. My research has definitely paid off.
I've seen Parisa in action before and it's beyond impressive.”
“She was on the ball 100% of the time before, during, and after the
case. I was absolutely amazed at how knowledgeable she was and how well
she held herself together. She has treated all of us like family during
this entire procedure and we all love her like family.”
“Parisa represented my nephew in an emergency custody hearing. She
was so helpful, kind, caring and most important intelligent and professional.
She by far is the best! If I ever need legal representation I will call
How is custody determined in Georgia?
Upon filing for a divorce, both spouses will have an opportunity to create
a child custody arrangement outside of court. If the couple cannot create
an agreement that is in the best interests of the minor child, the state
family courts may intervene and make a child custody order on behalf of
the separating couple. The courts will determine child custody based on
what is in the best interests of the child.
Factors that can be used to determine child custody may include:
- Who has more time available for parenting the children
- Who provides primary care
- Work schedules
- Who provides more stability
- Which parent is more capable of providing for the children
- The age of the spouses and the children
- The desires of the children (if of age)
- Other factors considered by the courts
Types of Child Custody Arrangements
There are various forms of child custody, and each has its own set of responsibilities
and duties. In the State of Georgia, the following child custody arrangements
can be made among separating couples.
The types of child custody include:
Legal custody - refers to which parent has the responsibility of making important legal
decisions on behalf of the child, including health care, religious affiliation,
education, and other decisions
Physical custody - refers to which parent has the responsibility of caring for the child
in a primary physical residence
Primary (sole) custody - refers to one parent having sole custody of the child and taking on
all responsibilities associated with legal and physical custody
Joint (shared) custody - refers to both parents sharing custody of the child and sharing the
responsibilities associated with legal and physical custody
In addition to these child custody plans, divorcing parents can also establish
parenting plans or visitation schedules. With the help of an attorney,
you can reach a mutually agreeable plan that can uphold the best interests
of your child or children.
