Ultimately, the court wants parents to understand that just because their intimate relationship is ending, their rights and responsibilities as parents are not. Because divorce is often full of conflict, pain and hurt, couples are encouraged to set aside their differences and focus on minimizing the effects of the separation on the children.
Two types of parenting plans exist: temporary and permanent. When there is a divorce that includes children, the family court requires that there must be specific rules and regulations concerning the children, hence the temporary parenting plan. These are used as a bridge during divorce proceedings to preserve the current lifestyle and enhance the stability of the children.
For a Georgia Superior Court to deny visitation to a parent, it must be determined that the child would be harmed in some way by continuing to have a relationship with the parent. This could be because of abuse allegations or because of criminal or immoral activity. In most cases, the court will not deny visitation permanently but will order the non-custodial parent to meet certain obligations. Often a parent will deny the other parent visitation rights. This is a violation of a court order and the other parent can be charged with contempt. First, the parent who was denied visitation must file for modification of visitation. Unfortunately, this can take several weeks to move through the court system before the parent has his or her visitation rights destroyed.
If the other parent refuses to cooperate on the agreement and insists on going to court, a parent should make every effort to prepare for court and get their parenting agreement accepted. The parent can suggest going to mediation to work things out beforehand, and some states even require that parents attend custody mediation before going to court. However, if things still do not work out, the parent should make a parenting agreement and be prepared to fully explain why this agreement is in the best interest of the children. They should give adequate time to both parents and make the parenting time schedule fair. This will help the court see that this parent is trying to do what is best for the child and increase the chances of the agreement being accepted. Hopefully, things can be resolved in the best way for the children.
