Foley, AL asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Georgia

Q: If a child was born out of wedlock, the parents split custody, and the mother has physical custody, can the father get

Full custody if the mother works in the adult industry? Everything is legal and the child is not exposed to it even in the slightest. Can father still take full custody just because he doesn't agree with the mothers job? As I said, the child isn't exposed to it.

A: The court will consider all factors and determine what's in the child's best interest. Working in the adult industry doesn't automatically mean the father will get custody. All the facts nd circumstances of both parties will be considered.

A: Not based on that fact alone. The court will consider the best interest of the child under the totality of the circumstances. Her employment alone will typically not be enough to tip the scales if it does not negatively affect the child.

A: There’s a lot of decisions that go into who gets custody of a child. Your job shouldn’t be the sole reason that you would not get custody to a child, especially if it is a legal job and the child is not exposed to it. Did the father legitimize the child? If not, then he wouldn’t have any legal rights to the child until/unless he does.
