Family law is our expertise, and we want to make sure you understand legal terms associated with this area of the law. Consider the following family law terms and services that our attorneys would be more than happy to help you with:
Alternative Dispute Resolutions
It’s becoming more common to settle cases outside of the courtroom. This has a plethora of benefits for both parties. Our team is adept at leading you toward the best resolution. Different types of alternative dispute resolutions include mediation, arbitration, late case evaluation, and judicially-hosted settlement conference.
Paternity & Legitimation
Establishing paternity is the process of discovering who the father is to the child. Legitimizing a child is the process that the father undertakes to legally acknowledge his offspring. Whether you need to establish paternity or legitimize a child, our family law attorneys can help you maneuver this emotionally-charged time.
Post-judgement matters encompass anything that occurs after the judge makes his decision that may affect the details of the case. For example, your case may need to be modified if you’ve experienced a life-changing event such as a job loss or move.
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are a great tool to use to bring peace of mind to your marriage. If you want to allocate certain finances or assets to your spouse or to yourself before a marriage begins, a prenuptial agreement must be written meticulously. If you choose to do this during your marriage, a postnuptial agreement must be written.
Restraining Order & Family Violence Actions
During certain divorce or child custody cases, a restraining order may be necessary due to family violence. In Georgia, family violence can take the form of a felony, assault, battery, criminal damage to property, criminal trespassing, stalking, and unlawful restraint. (Please note that our family law attorneys provide this legal service to our existing clients only.)
Please don’t hesitate to contact our family law attorneys if you need legal representation.
