How can I protect myself, my kids in disputes involving violence?

Domestic violence is a serious concern for families and spouses all across Georgia. Victims of violence can feel isolated, helpless and embarrassed while kids who witness violent or abusive behavior in their home can feel scared and anxious. It can create a hostile, terrifying home environment, but at the same time many people in this situation are too fearful of leaving it.

Which factors can negatively affect child custody arrangements?

If you are a parent getting divorced or have a baby with someone to whom you are not married, child custody is likely going to be an issue. Many people in this situation have some assumptions about this legal process and what they can expect. However, unless you are familiar with Georgia family laws, you may not have an accurate picture of what lies ahead.

Grandparents can face penalties for violating custody plans

When parents are unmarried or no longer raising a child together, it can become necessary to establish a custody plan. Child custody and visitation plans are put into place to protect the well-being of the kids involved and as well as the rights of a child's parents or guardians. 

Legal stakes can be quite high during adoption

Adopting a child can be one of the most important and fulfilling events in a parent's life. However, it can also be very difficult and upsetting for parents who are giving up a child for adoption. No matter what side of the matter you may be on, it can be crucial for everyone involved to have legal representation.

Can my child or spousal support payments be modified?

It can be easy to think that as soon as your divorce is finalized, you can cut all ties with an ex and go your separate ways. While this may largely be true, you may still be financially connected if you have an order for spousal or child support in place.
