Factors That Affect Custody And Support Matters
Georgia courts recognize the best interests of your child, and so do we. Factors weighed for child custody arrangements can vary from county to county; however child support guidelines are statewide, uniformly applied and income-based.
Mr. Kennedy informs you of all available custody options so you can make wise decisions about your future. He explains the distinctions between legal, sole legal, joint legal, primary physical and secondary physical custody.
If left to a court to decide, your child custody arrangements can have a definite impact on financial support of your child. Expenses to be discussed can relate to education, religious upbringing, recreational and extracurricular activities.
Once custody and support levels are established, our skilled lawyer can help you with modifications of responsibilities if dramatic lifestyle changes occur at a later date, or enforcement actions if custody and support obligations are not fulfilled. Put Fred’s 40 years of family law experience to work for you. We invite you to discuss your child custody and child support goals during a free consultation at our Augusta law office.
