I am named as the father of my daughter on her birth certificate. I am however not her biological father. My wife (daughters mother) has had drug addiction problems but we are working through this.

In the state of Georgia USA, I want to know what are my best options to share custody with my husband but also have some level of flexibility so if I have a job loss, I can apply in another state and move with my child.

I am going through divorce - I filed but the county has not

hello - I am going through divorce - I filed but the county has not yet provided a divorce case number. My question is this - her lawyer put together a custody agreement, which I agree to - joint custody, but primary physical custody to my soon to be x wife...my question is this. I have UGMA account that I opened - maybe to deposit funds to shield my creditors - I am the custodian of this account. Does the fact that primary physical custody going to wife risks that I would lose custodianship of this account, if the case were to go to court? Should I withdraw the funds and put in my own account, to avoid the risk of all the funds being controlled by my wife?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: an uncontested divorce legal service, yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: so I just had this one question.
