Imagine you file for divorce and you and your spouse -- no matter how hard you try -- cannot agree on important issues like child custody, child support and asset division? Your disagreements will be fueled by emotions and have the potential for getting out of control and result in a long, drawn out, costly and stressful divorce process.
When divorce comes to a marriage, both partners may respond in unexpected, volatile ways. Depending on each spouse's own previous experiences with divorce, the reasons for the divorce and many other factors, the process can get messy and ugly quickly.
The Georgia Fatherhood Program is a special initiative that supports noncustodial fathers to gain financial independence so they can afford to pay their child support obligations. Since 1997, the Fatherhood Program has swooped in to assist unemployed fathers in gaining the life skills and education they need to find gainful employment.
