Legal SeparationIf divorce is not the right path but remaining married is not an option, you might consider a Legal Separation.
Property DivisionGeorgia is an “Equitable Division State" which means that the law requires property to be divided "fairly." This does not necessarily mean an equal division.
AlimonyGeorgia law looks to one party's need and the other party's ability to pay when determining if alimony is appropriate.
CustodyIn all cases involving children, the law requires that the parties determine both physical and legal custody. Physical custody relates to each parent’s “parenting time.” Legal custody addresses how major decisions will be made regarding the child.
Child SupportGeorgia law requires both parents to provide for a child’s maintenance, protection, and education by way of child support.
Modification ActionsWhether it relates to child support, alimony, custody or parenting time, changes within a family often require revisiting the terms of the original Divorce Decree or Settlement Agreement.
Contempt ActionsThe Courts routinely enforce their Orders, especially in the areas of child support, parenting time and payment of alimony.
Paternity & LegitimationMany people do not realize that when a child is born to parents who are not married, only the Mother has legal and custodial rights over the child until a Court enters an order of Paternity or Legitimation.
