When a family court judge in Atlanta creates a custody agreement, it is expected that both the mother and father abide by it. While we have taken the time to discuss fathers' rights in this blog and that sometimes women receive better child custody decisions, judges rarely award either parent full custody of the children. When they do, it is often because they believe it to be best for the children. Whether that is true or not, if the parent who has no custodial rights over the children, it is best for him or her to work with his or her lawyer to modify the agreement and not to do anything outside the letter of the agreement.
