How does joint custody work in Georgia?

Return to FAQ Videos


In Georgia, when parents share joint legal custody, they have a duty to consult and confer with one another before important decisions regarding the children are made. When parents share joint physical custody, that typically means children spend about equal time with each parent, although the parents can share physical time with the children according to other schedules as reached by agreement or as determined by the court.
