Currently, I am the custodial parent of our minor child. Divorce was finalized 4 years ago. January 09, NCP was found in contempt of non-payment of child support, he now has a new contempt charge for the same filed agiants him by Ga. Child Support Enforcement. He has recently been found guilty of abandonment, sentenced to 1 year incarceration, suspended if he pays his child support on time in full every week. The non custodial parent has made no attempt to exercise visitations in 4 years, has made no attempt at ANY form of communciation with our minor child in that time. I would like to apply for sole legal/physical custody. What are my chances at this point of getting this? In Ga. do I apply for modification in the county the NCP resides, or where our divorce was finalized?
