Family Law Cases We Handle

Our Stone Mountain legal team has the skills and experience to handle all types of divorce and family law matters, including:

  • Divorce – Even if your situation seems amicable, you need to speak with an attorney. This is even more true if your case is contentious. Your finances, property, and your relationships with your children are all at stake. You need an experienced divorce lawyer to fight for the best possible outcome for you and your family.
    • High Profile Divorce Cases – We understand the unique considerations of divorces that involve celebrities, athletes, musicians, entertainers, and high net worth individuals. We are experienced in handling these types of cases, including working with agents, personal assistants, and publicists. 
  • Alimony and Spousal Support – The determination of alimony can be complex. It may be short-term or long-term and involves many factors. These can include the duration of the marriage, both parties’ finances, standard of living, age, and emotional condition of the spouse who is seeking alimony.
  • Appeals – Whether you are seeking to appeal a decision or if you need to defend against an impending appeal, we can help. There are time-sensitive considerations that are critical to navigating the situation properly, so you need to act quickly.
  • Child Custody and Visitation – No matter if you are seeking sole or joint custody, you need to understand all the details of the arrangement. It may not be immediately clear how the implications will affect you until it is too late. We can help you protect your relationship and future with your children.
  • Child Support – The goal after a divorce is final is for a child’s life to stay as normal as possible. Parents are legally required to provide both physical care and monetary support for their children. Regardless of which spouse is seeking child support, you need to have a strong attorney on your side.
  • Contempt Actions – It is our hope for you that the agreements and judicial orders made in your case are complied with thereafter. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. If you suspect that there are violations of a family court order, you need to call us as soon as possible. This may take the form of issues regarding child custody or division of property.
  • Grandparents and Third-party Custody/Visitation – For various reasons, parents are sometimes unable to reach an agreement for custody of children after a divorce. This means that custody issues may be decided in court by a judge. The state of Georgia strongly prefers that the natural parents of children have custody. However, this is not always the case and Georgia law permits grandparents to pursue visitation rights and custody. 
  • Legitimation and Paternity – These are critical to establish when a child was born outside of marriage and they affect the legal rights and responsibilities of the child’s parents. Paternity refers to proving who the biological father of a child is. Legitimation is a legal action that establishes legal rights for a father when a child is born out of wedlock. 
  • Mediation – When a divorce is not contentious, mediation can be a beneficial option. This is usually more cost-effective than going to trial. It also offers more control over the outcome of the resulting settlement. 
  • Pre/Post Nuptial Agreements – These are created before or after wedding vows, respectively. Agreements of this type can provide protection, regardless of the net worth or assets of each partner prior to marriage. No one enters a marriage with the expectation that it will end in divorce. However, you owe it to yourself to consider if this is right for your relationship.
  • Restraining and Protective Orders – If there is a prior history of physical violence, or if there is stalking or unwanted touching, you need to speak with an attorney now. It’s a crime to touch someone without their permission. You may wonder if your situation is serious enough to merit a protective order. If this is the case, call us today to make sure you and your family are protected.
