The Relative Nature Of The Word “Best”

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”
-St. Jerome

The word “best” is a relative one. One person’s best may look very different than another person’s. “Best,” is also subjective in the eyes of the person evaluating the work or efforts of a person. When determining what is best, it’s difficult and can be vague. 

When it comes to child custody and divorce the legal standard is called “the best interests of the child.” Determining what is best is a difficult task. Even two married parents who have a relatively healthy  marriage have disagreements on what is best for each child in the family. When divorce is involved, the tension surrounding what is best for each child is escalated.

When seeking what you feel is best for your children during a divorce, it’s a good idea to consult with our family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Rowsey. With the help of our offices, you will be able to effectively have your factors presented to a Georgia family court that will reach a decision about what is “the best interest of the child.”

The court, according to Title 19 of Georgia’s Domestic Relations Law, uses 17 specific factors to determine what is best for your child. If you live in Atlanta or a surrounding city, contact the child custody lawyers at our Law Offices of Thomas C. Rowsey to discuss how you reach your best goals and needs for your children during your divorce.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
