I’m Shawna Woods, managing partner at the Atlanta Divorce Law Group.
There’s a common misconception that children at a certain age can choose where they want to live.
That’s not necessarily true. Here in Georgia at the age of 14, a child may sign an affidavit election, choosing to live with one parent over the other or jointly with both parents.
The law states that that affidavit is an election, that is a presumption that it is in the child’s best interest and presumptions can be overcome, whether there are facts and factors.
It is really important to talk to an experienced divorce attorney here at the Atlanta Divorce Law Group so that we can make sure that your child’s affidavit election is not overcome.
