Do Not Face Your Divorce Alone

Our Experienced Legal Team Will Guide You Through This

Our legal team understands how challenging and stressful divorce can be during the process itself and during the aftermath due to implications of a settlement or divorce decree. The results of a divorce are critical and long lasting. If you are ending your marriage, it is important to make sure to leave the relationship with the financial security that you are entitled to, and — more importantly — to protect the best interests of your children, as well as maintain your relationship with them.

Our lead attorney, Margaret Gettle Washburn, has practiced law for over 35 years. We have the experience it takes to get our clients the results they need.

Located in Lawrenceville, Georgia, our skilled legal team handles family law cases throughout Gwinnett County and the surrounding areas. Our attorneys and paralegals have extensive experience in all aspects of divorce and separate maintenance, including:

"Domestic relations cases are both financially and emotionally costly and I believe that these cases are best resolved with the least amount of strain on the family." — Ms. Washburn

What Is Separate Maintenance?

Some people who would like to separate from their spouse do not want to actually obtain a divorce. Religious reasons, Social Security issues, health insurance and other factors may lead people to seek separate maintenance rather than a legal divorce. We understand these concerns and the legal implications.

Georgia law allows such individuals to file separate maintenance agreements, which address many of the same issues as a divorce decree. Whatever your reason for pursuing separate maintenance rather than divorce, our family law attorneys are prepared to help you understand your options and protect your interests. We will work with you to resolve the division of assets and debts, child custody, child support and other related issues.

We Can Handle Your Case Inside A Courtroom Or Out

While our team of trial lawyers is adept at litigating complicated family law cases, we are also talented negotiators who excel in pretrial negotiations and in devising settlements that protect our clients' interests.

We are proud to offer our clients effective and efficient strategies, regardless of whether they have children and modest or high net worth marital estates. Our clients have included business owners, homemakers, athletes, executives, entertainers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, students, police officers, government employees and clergy, among many others.

As your legal team, we will help you obtain your divorce or separate maintenance agreement in the best way possible for your unique circumstances.
