Divorce is usually complicated. If children are in the equation, not only does it get more complicated, but in many cases the children can become pawns of manipulation, victims of circumstance, collateral damage. It is always best to hire an attorney to protect everyone’s rights.
Melanie Webre was involved in a case with a married couple who previously lived on the West Coast. The wife moved to Georgia with their three-year old daughter and the husband moved to the Midwest. Once in Georgia, the wife filed for divorce. The husband did not hire an attorney. In the divorce agreement, he was given monthly visitation, but no specific schedule was in place and visitation would be allowed as agreed upon by the parties.
