There's a lot at stake, obviously, when you go to court for a child custody hearing. You will want to put your best foot forward to show the judge that you are deserving of either full or joint custody or frequent visitation with your child.
Parenting is already hard enough when a couple can agree on how to guide a child's development in tune with their own relationship. But things can get far more difficult and far more litigious when parents disagree or separate into different homes and lifestyles. Children may find themselves conflicted after adults make decisions that affect them deeply.

As a parent, you will always want to do whatever is in your power in order to protect your child. Usually, young children spend every day and night with you as a biological parent; however, when biological parents are seperated, it can mean that the child splits his or her time between each parent. While this is done to ensure that the child has a strong bond with each parent, you might worry that the other parent is not responsible, and that you are not able to protect your child from harm at all times.
When a child support order is made in the state of Georgia, the obligation for the parent to pay his or her child support order becomes legally enforceable.
