Contact a Georgia child custody lawyer at our firm to schedule your initial consultation. We handle a wide variety of custody matters, including the following:

  • Legitimation / paternity (to obtain custody opportunity or child support)
  • Grandparents as parents (obtaining custody on behalf of a relative)
  • Parental relocation (move away with or from child)
  • Social service agency matters
  • Custody / visitation disputes

Legitimation and paternity actions allow a father to obtain custodial and visitation rights. An experienced Athens child custody lawyer can help a biological father to file legitimate actions toward establishing custodial rights that grant more than the obligation to support. Paternity issues may also arise in a divorce action.

In Georgia, family members other than the parents, such as grandparents, aunts and uncles, and siblings can sometimes step in to obtain custody on behalf of a relative. Grandparent custody can occur when a biological parent is failing to care for a child, the child's welfare is in danger, and the grandparents are in a position to care for the child.
