Protecting Your Important Relationship With Your Child

We recognize how emotional establishing parenting schedules can be for our clients. When you consult with us, you can expect to work with a Buford child custody attorney who is keenly aware of the struggles you face, and will determinedly protect your parental rights every step of the way.

Led by founder and managing lawyer Eric J. Tatum, our Georgia law firm represents parents throughout the Gwinnett County area in all custody matters.

In Georgia, the court takes many factors into consideration when awarding custody to parents. Ultimately, the best interests of the child(ren) involved is the overriding factor in all cases. Parenting schedules typically involve matters such as:

  • Legal custody | When a parent is awarded legal custody, he or she is given the legal right to make important decisions for the child, including medical care, religious beliefs, schooling, etc. Legal custody can be awarded to one parent (sole legal custody) or both parents (joint legal custody)
  • Physical custody | Physical custody pertains to which parent the child will reside with the majority of the time. In many cases, the parent with whom the child lives with more often is typically awarded child support. Like legal custody, physical custody can be awarded solely or jointly. The parent who is not awarded physical custody has a right to visitation with his or her child.

Eric J. Tatum will work closely with you to learn about your situation and build a case that accurately presents your important relationship with your child(ren), as well as those unique circumstances that should be considered.

We will tirelessly work to help you reach your child custody goals, ultimately keeping your child's best interests in mind.
