Case Conclusion Date: 08.14.2013
Practice Area: Family
Outcome: Mother (my client) retained custody.
Description: I represented a mother in a custody modification action where her 16 year old son filed an affidavit of election seeking to live with his father. In Georgia, if a child 14 years of age or older selects to be with one parent, that selection is presumptive unless the parent selected is determined not to be in the best interest of the child.
