Comprehensive Family Law Representation
We handle both uncontested and contested divorces. Sometimes, there are property and debt issues, and sometimes there are child custody issues. Custody, support, and equitable division of property and debt are common in almost every divorce. These issues can be complicated, but we are here to help.
The State of Georgia has created a system of income-sharing that requires careful legal analysis. We are very familiar with this system and can help you legally ensure that the support determined by the Court is fair and equitable.
After a divorce, there is a “final order.” However, if circumstances change, such as a substantial increase or decrease in one of the parents’ incomes, or one ex-partner moves to another state, the final order can be modified. It is not enough for exes to verbally agree on a modification; rather, it is a legal process that requires filing paperwork with the court. To ensure that your proposed changes are recorded and made official, retain a knowledgeable family law attorney who can guide you through the process.
After the divorce, circumstances can change. We can help you change or retain custody of your children. The facts of your case are important, and we can assist you in identifying those which are important to the Court. If you are not married, then the laws affecting custody may differ substantially — we will help you navigate.
We are thrilled when we are able to help step-parents, grandparents, and others adopt children. We handle both contested and uncontested adoptions.
When a loved one dies, you naturally experience emotional grief, but you must also confront a new reality. Their assets must be divided, and this is typically done through the probate process. To probate means to prove. You must probate, or prove, to the court that a will did or did not exist. Then, the Personal Representative must be appointed to carry out their duties. Georgia has some special laws regarding probate procedures, and an experienced attorney can help you avoid common pitfalls and secure the best possible outcome for your family.
Georgia has strong family violence laws that protect victims of domestic violence. Both victims and the accused can suffer if their rights aren’t advocated in the proper manner. The system can be somewhat manipulated by those familiar with its nuances, but an experienced attorney can help you avoid pitfalls and protect your rights.
Sometimes, a person is unable to pay a court ordered litigation. This might result in incarceration. By knowing the law and the factors involved in a contempt case, we can help you to understand the situation and we an explain to you what can be done to avoid this potential problem.
