Child Custody in Georgia and Interstate Child Custody
Rhodes Law family attorneys are experienced in litigating under Georgia’s Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). This act helps judges determine what state should have jurisdiction to determine issues of child custody and visitation between different states.
Child Custody, Child Support and Contempt of Court
Too often a parent fails to comply with the Court’s order regarding custody, visitation, or support. Ms. Rhodes represents parents in bringing actions to enforce these provisions and also defends parents improperly accused of contempt of court.
Child Support in Georgia
Georgia child support guidelines are based on both parents’ income and consider expenses, including healthcare insurance, day care, school tuition, extracurricular activities, visitation-related travel expenses and parenting time.
