Family Law

While common, divorce and child custody disputes are both heart-wrenching and complicated. When you get divorced, you need answers and you need results. Who gets the house? Who pays the debts? Who gets the cars, the furniture, and the jewelry? Most important of all – who gets custody of the children? What are your visitation rights? How much support must you pay or receive?

When spouses disagree on one or more of the issues related to child custody, child support, property division and alimony, the divorce is considered to be contested. The process and outcome of filing a contested divorce in Georgia depends greatly on the county of your divorce – a lengthy, litigated matter can take nine months to two years. Our lawyers are very experienced in all areas of family law. We can help you through this difficult time and assist you in obtaining the results you want.
