Family Law

Divorce is difficult.

We work to make sure the process is not. 

Whether you are facing a contested divorce, trying to determine paternity, or working out child custody details with a former partner, these life-changing legal issues can take an emotional toll. Don't navigate the family court system on your own; hire an attorney who is experienced and compassionate, and one who will look out for your best interests.

Our experienced family law attorneys can help resolve family law issues related to​

  • Contested and uncontested divorce

  • Spousal maintenance/alimony

  • Property division

  • Child custody and support

  • Modifications of orders

  • Grandparent Visitation/Custody

  • Relocations

  • Paternity

  • Domestic violence​

Divorce

If you are thinking about getting a divorce, or if you have been served with a petition for dissolution of marriage, you need to think about the long-term as well as find solutions to immediate practical problems about who is going to live where, interim child support, or custody and visitation of the children. The divorce process can be scary and overwhelming. It is important to have legal counsel and an attorney helping you along the way. Working with an experienced and detailed attorney can help provide you with legal counsel you need to quickly and effectively resolve issues that might arise in your divorce. In spite of the challenges faced along the way, the ultimate goal of a divorce is to end the marriage, decide child custody and visitation, and also divide property and assets as amicably as possible. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping you reach that amicable ending. 

Paternity

Our lawyers are often asked to help unmarried mothers and fathers with problems concerning child support, child custody, or visitation. If you need advice and representation about your right of access to your own child, or counsel about a paternity dispute or support obligation, contact us today. 

Our attorneys can represent either parent in a case to determine the paternity of a child. In most cases, there is no real question as to the father’s identity, but formal establishment of paternity will be necessary to determine how much child support the father has child support obligations. If the alleged father denies paternity, we can help you protect your rights through DNA testing and other relevant evidence. When paternity is not contested, the amount of child support might well be subject to legitimate dispute. The same child support guidelines applied in Georgia divorce cases are used to set the amount of payments in paternity cases.

Child Support

In Georgia, child support guidelines create a mathematical formula that is utilized by courts to compute child support awards. While the formula might seem straightforward, child support cases can often be complex. Our attorneys are committed to providing quality legal representation and superior service for all clients. To protect your rights and your child's interest, our attorneys are equipped to handle the following issues: 

  • Divorce

  • Paternity

  • Child Support Modifications

  • Calculation of income in cases involving self-employed spouses

  • Imputing income to voluntarily unemployed parties

  • High child care costs resulting from a child's illness, disability or physical impairment

Estate Planning

Effective planning and preservation for your future.

Our attorneys believe that estate planning is not only about creating the documents, but also about the results. Too often estate planning is only equated to wills and powers of attorney. These are important documents and necessary to achieve estate planning goals. However, the estate planning process consists of much more than just the routine preparation of documents. Our attorneys are recognized for our expertise in estate planning and probate and trust administration. Our tax and estate planning practice includes, but is not limited to, the following:


Entity Related Planning   Family partnerships, joint ventures, and limited liability companies to develop and operate real estate or other business projects, substantially reducing the family’s potential income and estate tax while preserving control.


Trust Agreements   Living trusts, which provide for the disposition of a client’s assets at death in a tax-efficient and probate-free manner, and also for the management of property during the client’s lifetime in case of disability.


Wills   Wills, testamentary trusts, and similar arrangements, which provide security for the client’s heirs, minimize income taxes and maximize administrative efficiency.


Pre-Relationship Agreements   Planning and negotiating prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, and other arrangements to protect assets and earnings from potential claims of ex-spouses or others.


Post-Marital Agreements   Planning and negotiating specialized marital settlement agreements to provide for the continued unified operation and control of a family business and investment properties following a divorce.
