FAQ's for Our Buckhead Office
What Should I Look for in a Family Law Attorney?
When looking for a family law attorney in the Buckhead area, you want to make sure you find one that offers the experience and education you need. Some attorneys have more experience handling cases like yours than others do, and that can make a difference. Especially if you have a contested or high-asset divorce, you may want to be very careful about the legal services you retain. Your divorce case could take a long time, and the courts may make some decisions for you. Having the right legal professional on your side matters.
How Do I Know What Type of Divorce I Need?
If you and your spouse agree to everything about the divorce, you can generally file for one that's uncontested. This is the easiest and fastest type of divorce, and is usually completed and finalized within a couple of months. If you don't or can't agree with your spouse on areas of the divorce, though, you'll have a contested divorce. You may be able to solve the issues with mediation, but you may also need to have the courts make some decisions in the case. These types of divorces can take much longer.
Does the Buckhead Family Law Office Offer Weekend Hours?
The Buckhead family law office of Stearns‑Montgomery & Proctor is open both weekday and weekend hours to help you. The office hours are Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm, and on Saturday from 9am to 5pm. There are also Sunday hours available by appointment, if you need to meet with your family law attorney on that day. Having options for appointment days and times is one of the best ways to get support and information when you need it.
