What Custody Arrangement is Best for My Child? Ages and Stages of Children in Georgia Child Custody Cases

As we approach the January 1, 2008, implementation date for HB 369, the Georgia Shared Parenting Act, we are mindful of the new requirements for parenting plans in Georgia divorce and other Georgia family law cases involving custody (joint or shared) of minor children. The 9th Judicial Administrative District Office of Dispute Resolution, covering the courts in most of North Central and Northeast Georgia (Superior Courts of Cherokee County, Fannin County,  Forsyth County, Gilmer County, Gwinnett County, Habersham County, Hall County, Lumpkin County, Pickens County, Rabun County, Stephens County, Towns County, Union County, and White County), has prepared a helpful pamphlet called “What’s Best for My Child? (Ages and Stages of Children). You can find it here or it is included below.

Research Local (and Distant) Schools Online

Ben Stevens at The South Carolina Family Law Blog, posts a nice online link for a useful resource in move away cases.

Parents are moving today more than ever.  In fact, I receive calls almost every week about these "parental relocation cases."  One of the (many) issues that the Court considers in such cases is the quality of the schools in each location. 

Fortunately, it is now easier than ever to find out necessary information about educational institutions located far away, thanks to Yahoo Real Estate.  This free service allows you to research both public and private schools in any state by city name or even by zip code.

The information provided includes contact information, enrollment, student to teacher ratio, and location on an interactive map.  There are also reports available on the school’s test scores, students, and teachers.  This resource can prove extremely helpful as a starting point when a child’s eduction is at issue, and I urge you to check it out.
