Dear Readers,There is a myth burned into the psyche of anyone other than a family attorney – father's don't win custody battles. Thisis just not the case. In fact, I'd venture to guess, at least in my practice, fathers stand better than a 50/50 chance of winning a custody fight. This might be a matter of self-selection. What I mean by this is that maybe dads don't take marginal cases to a final hearing. Regardless, a dad being awarded custody of his kids is far from a rare event. Yet, everyone ...

Dear Readers,We get asked about "grandparents' rights" from time-to-time and, since Georgia changed its law last May, this is a good time to review past and present law with respect to a grandparents and child custody issues.In acknowledgment of the importance of grandparents, the Georgia Legislature has provided some legal muscle for grandparents' rights.  One such reference you will find is at O.C.G.A. §19-7-1(b.1), concerning the rights of "third party" relatives, including grandparents, wher...

Dear Readers, This week's column is prompted by an editorial written by Ruth Bettelheim, a family therapist. The central theme of her opinion piece is that children should play a more active role in contributing to parenting plans between divorced (or separated) parents. Ms. Bettelheim addresses the definite conundrum of maintaining strong bonds with both parents, while simultaneously permitting a child to enjoy the many tantalizing opportunities of childhood. Her solutions, though, might be wor...

Dear Readers, When a service member is involved in a custody fight, what might otherwise seem simple can be made complicated. A new law makes things a little clearer. Last year, Georgia finally joined the vast majority of other states in crafting special child custody rules addressing the needs and stresses of military life for service members and their dependents in passing the "Military Parents Act." In the middle Georgia area, our judges have been attuned to the best interests of military d...

Tomorrow, March 1, Jim will be appearing on The Warner Robins Patriot radio show with Joe Bis...
