Child custody dispute plays out on Teen Mom 2

It appears that the MTV reality show "Teen Mom 2" is pushing the limits of good sense by covering a real-life custody battle between a mother, Jenelle Evans, and her mother, Barbara Evans. The child custody dispute is about the custody of Jenelle's 5-year-old son Jace. Such disputes are not uncommon here in Georgia or in any other state.

To say that all child custody arrangements should be based on an equal sharing of time by the parents is to deny the basic uniqueness of each family's situation that comes before a court. Child custody is best determined by a judge who delves into the specifics of the case and makes an informed decision, based on sufficient fact-finding, regarding what would be best for the particular children under the given circumstances.

His child custody victory may be viewed as a fathers' rights win for parents in Georgia and across the nation.

The study did not apparently include any couples in Georgia, but the universality of the conclusions and later follow-up studies indicate that the findings apply here as well.
