What Rights Do Fathers Have When It Comes To Child Custody?

Hi, I’m Shawna Woods, managing partner here at the Atlanta Divorce Law Group.

We often get asked about fathers rights and gaining custody for their children.

Yes, the short answer is fathers do have equal rights when it comes to custody of their children.

There are two types of custody, there’s physical custody and then there’s legal custody.

Legal Custody includes final decision making power in certain areas. Physical Custody is who the children are going to be living with, either primarily or jointly.

There are many factors that go into determining what’s in the best interest of the children.

You need to give us a call today because your case isn’t cookie cutter here at the Atlanta Divorce Law Group.

We can help you determine what factors to show the court to best show that you are what’s in the best interest of the children.
