When going through your divorce process, you will encounter something that seems mysterious and maybe even arbitrary to you—a judge's decision about who receives custody and visitation rights. It's also probably one of the things that worries you the most. You fear having restricted access to your children who you love dearly, and you might think an arbitrary decision from a judge might bar you from seeing your children on a regular basis.
If divorce mediation were sold like a product in a commercial, the product benefits would claim to calm even the angriest spouses. Fortunately, this "product" actually delivers upon its intended benefits in most divorce cases. That's why most counties require mediation before you ever step into court.

Hodges determined that same-sex couples now have the constitutional right to marry in any state.

Governor Nathan Deal and Attorney General Sam Olens have indicated that the state of Georgia does not intend to stand in the way of the Supreme Court’s ruling.
