Divorce FAQ

Our main goal is to help people through these difficult times and ensure that their goals are met. We handle cases ranging from child custody to child support to divorce mediation to parental alienation. We understand that you will have many questions during this time and want to be there for you to address any concerns. You can look through these frequently asked questions or you can contact an Atlanta divorce lawyer at our office to discuss your case.

Who will get custody after a divorce?
One of the most difficult decisions you will have to make during the divorce process is who will get custody of your children. We understand that both parents want what is best for their children, but it can be difficult to see eye to eye regarding what that will look like. Family law courts in Georgia make custody decisions according to what is in the best interests of the child. They may grant sole or joint custody, physically and legally. They will also approve or make modifications to the parenting time schedule.

What is divorce mediation?
It may come as a surprise to learn that mediation is more common in divorce cases than is litigation. Divorce mediation not only cuts down on extra expense, but it cuts down on time and hassle as well. Rather than put your case in the hands of a judge, you will sit down with one of our attorneys and work through the details of your case.

Can I modify a spousal support order?
We understand that life circumstances change and it may be necessary to make modifications to a spousal support order for one reason or another. Whether you need to receive a higher monthly payment from your ex-spouse or you are unable to make the payments, you should contact our team to learn what your options are. In most cases, spousal support does not last forever. This being said, your job situation, medical expenses and living arrangements could all have a bearing on your case. Please get in touch with our team to learn more.

How will property division be determined?
One of the most complex aspects of a divorce case is determining how to divide the couple's property and assets. The first step in these situations is to divide the property into marital property or private property. Georgia is an equitable distribution state so marital property is divided equally between the spouses. This not only includes assets, but any taxes or debts accrued by the couple while they were married. To ensure that you are treated fairly throughout this process, please do not hesitate to contact our firm for help. We will walk with you through every stage of your case.
