Parenting Plans, Guardian Ad Litem and Modifications of Child Custody
In Georgia, many of the issues regarding child custody are dealt with in parenting plans, which detail specifics of physical and legal custody, including:
- Communication and visitation exchanges
- Child support
- Medical insurance and life insurance
- Special needs of the children
- Complex issues, involving counseling, psychologists and mental health professionals
In some cases involving child custody, a guardian ad litem is often appointed — someone who acts as a neutral party looking out for the best interests of the children. While we often represent parents in custody cases, our attorneys are also trained as guardian ad litem. Our attorneys will help you understand the role of the guardian ad litem in custody cases.
When lifestyle changes happen after a divorce decree or parenting plan has been created, a modification of custody might be necessary. We can help you seek a modification — or dispute a modification if your ex-spouse is attempting to change the decree or plan without proper justification — and will defend your rights throughout the process.
