Georgia Divorce and Family Law Information

Introduction

Family law is the branch of civil law that covers the legal relationships among family members, including husbands, wives, parents, children, and domestic partners. These personal relationships are governed by Georgia law.

Choosing the approach to divorce and family law problems is difficult, but it is important that you take the right approach to avoid unnecessary delay, expense and personal stress.

First, what are you trying to accomplish? Do you just need an uncontested divorce? Is mediation a possibility? Or has your relationship with your spouse deteriorated to the point that what you really need a warrior to battle on your behalf in an adversarial divorce?

Are your affairs fairly simple, so that a professional with basic understanding and good people skills can help you, or do you have complex property holdings and support goals, so that you need sophisticated tax and financial advice? Knowing the kind of services you need will help you choose among approached most effectively.
