Divorce is the termination of marriage and requires a judicial determination of the parties’ respective rights and responsibilities. In Georgia, all issues involved in the dissolution of a marriage must be addressed in the Final Judgment and Decree of Divorce. Some of these include the division of marital property, a determination regarding child custody and parenting time, child support, spousal support, and attorney’s fees awards, if any.
In addition to divorce, family law covers related matters including legal separation, child custody, child support, modification of child custody and child support, enforcement of existing domestic orders, family violence protection, legitimation, and paternity actions.
Many times, psychological or physical abuse is an issue in a family law matter. Divorce and other family problems are not only among the most difficult life events to experience, specific legal decisions must be made which impact taxes, immigration status, retirement income, credit scores, relocation and even reputation. It is important that before an attempt is made to enter into a resolution of the issues in your case, you fully inform yourself of your rights and legal entitlements. You may schedule a consultation with this firm at any time for a better understanding of the obligations and protections you are afforded by law.
