Handling Divorce Matters
Our Georgia family law attorneys understand how difficult divorce can be for parties involved. We want to make your divorce easier, smoother and quicker, if possible. There are two types of divorce: one is contested and one is non-contested. Ideally, you would go through a non-contested divorce where you and your soon to be ex-spouse agree on most things and can use a mediator. Non-contested divorces do not need a judge to deliberate about what happens in the divorce.
Contested divorces are as it sounds— much more difficult. They often involve more tension and stress between the two divorcing parties. Unfortunately, it’s going to be more difficult this way. The best thing that you can do is have a fierce lawyer on your side to get you through this and achieve a fair result.
Regardless if your divorce is going to go smoothly over a couple of weeks or be an arduous process over several months, we want to stand by you. This is a difficult time for people, and our Georgia family law attorneys respect that.
Handling Alimony Matters
Alimony won’t be involved with every single divorce, but our Georgia family law attorneys are apt in handling divorces that do require some form of spousal support. Again, not every divorce is going to have alimony involved because not every divorce needs it.
Alimony is typically given to the party in the divorce who requires financial support in order to maintain the lifestyle which they’ve been accustomed to, so long as it is reasonable. If one spouse is working and the other is not, alimony may be given either temporarily or permanently, so that the spouse can provide for themselves.
If a spouse needs to return to school in order to become gainfully employed, then alimony might be given temporarily in order to help them on the journey.
Every single case is going to be completely unique, and you absolutely need to speak to our Georgia family law attorneys if alimony is something that you want, are concerned about or both. We are here to help guide you either way.
Please understand that alimony can be requested at any time during the divorce process by either party but only granted to one.
Handling Child Custody Matters
Child custody matters can be very stressful for everyone involved. Our Georgia family law attorneys want to be sure that you are represented well when custody is being deliberated. While we will be there for you to help make sure that the end result reflects what we believe to be fair for you, at the end of the day custody is going to be based on what is best for the children.
There are several different outcomes to custody agreements. There might be one person who has sole custody of the children, the parties may have joint physical custody and the children will spend even time with them, or one parent might have physical custody while both parents have legal custody. Legal custody means that you can help make decisions about education, medical decisions, and extracurricular activities.
Again, the judge is going to work in the best interest of the children. You might be worried if they’re going to favor one party over the other. It does not work like that. Factors such as what housing each party has, the finances of each party, their relationship to the child, and more go into determining how custody is going to be granted.
Handling Child Support Matters
Child support is a very complicated matter in family law. It is enforced through the law, which means you cannot be late for payments or skip payments. You can get into serious legal trouble if that happens. Every case of child support is going to be different. To ensure that the results are fair, you need to work with our Georgia family law attorneys. An agreement will be met based on custody, finances, and more. We want to ensure that it is both fair to your children and to yourself.
