Child Custody & Visitation
Reaching Healthy Agreements for Parenting Time
When parents do not live together, it is important to get a court order that defines the time each parent has with their minor child(ren).
Reese-Beisbier & Associates specializes in child custody and visitation and handles matters that arise as part of a divorce action to modify previously decided or as an original action by another family member.
Custody matters are highly sensitive and very emotional. Children need loving adults to nurture and provide for them. Everyone on our family law team understands the significance of these kinds of cases; therefore, we approach each one with the compassion and patience required to help our clients make sound decisions for their families.
Georgia law requires parents to enter into a written Parenting Plan that sets forth when each parent will be entitled to be with their child(ren) physically. If the parents cannot agree, the Court will order its own Parenting Plan. Reese-Beisbier & Associates can work with the Court to design a Parenting Plan that allows the child(ren) to flourish.
Bottom line, Tera was able to get my children and I a six-hundred percent increase in the amount of time that we now get to spend together. Now, I get to see them every week, just about every day, and it’s absolutely wonderful, and I really have Tera to thank for that.
Georgia courts use the “best interests of the child” standard. The judge will review several categories before making a determination about custody arrangements. The goal of all Courts is to promote meaningful relationships between parents and child(ren); however, all counties and judges are different. Once a judge is assigned to your divorce case, Reese-Beisbier & Associates can better guide your expectations as to custody and parenting time based on our past experience with the judge and the given facts of your case.
