Atlanta, GA asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Georgia

Q: Child's father has given every dinner visit he's ever had to his mother

Child's father has allowed his mother to pick up, keep, and return the child on every Thursday dinner visit he's had, which is over a year now. He is now stating that he wants his mother to pick her up from school on those Thursday's. The paperwork says he has her from the time school lets out until 7:30 the same day. But he isn't coming to get her, nor has he ever, and I don't want her grandmother picking her up from school for a multitude of reasons. The paperwork says HE has that time. HE can pick her up. He's never excercised this. Paperwork says nothing of anyone other than he and I picking up/dropping off. Can I deny his attempt to have his mother pick the child up from school?

A: Unless she is on drugs, I don't see what is wrong with her having a dinner visit on his time. He can pick up your child, drive her to his mother's house and leave her there, so it's really the same thing.

A: I agree with my colleague, unless she (the child's grandmother) is a danger to the child then there shouldn't be an issue with her picking the child up on those days. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
