Georgia Divorce Law
Our family law attorneys and divorce lawyers recognize the stress divorce can cause, and we are skillfully trained to guide you through the complex divorce process. Our expertise includes marital property division; assessing whether spousal support or alimony will be awarded; and establishing child custody, visitation, and child support.
Our Metro Atlanta divorce attorneys also specialize in collaborative divorce. A collaborative divorce can be an excellent option for some families. With collaborative divorce, the process remains positive, respectful, and interest-based while still allowing clients their legal assets. Collaborative divorce can be a wonderful alternative to traditional divorce, particularly for families with children.
We also specialize in law services and advice for the following types of divorce cases:

Is Divorce Right for Me?
In many cases, a family counselor can better prepare you to answer the question of whether divorce is right for you. However, being prepared is essential in deciding to proceed with a divorce.
If you are considering a divorce, here are a few important facts that you may not know.
- You don't need to be physically separated with your spouse prior to filing for a divorce.
- You may avoid court and litigation with collaborative divorce or mediation options. In fact, we encourage Alternative Dispute Resolution—a more amicable approach to resolving conflict.
- Assets obtained before your marriage may be treated differently than those acquired during your marriage.
- Income is not the only factor that affects alimony, child support, and spousal support in a divorce.
In addition, the following items should be properly addressed before proceeding:
- You have been well informed of your legal rights
- You have a good overall view of your financial position
- Your emotional and psychological needs have been addressed
- If children are involved that their future needs have been carefully considered and addressed
Many people have questions about divorce and how to proceed with a divorce in Georgia through the legal system. For more information, please visit our Divorce Questions pages to learn more about the grounds for divorce, affairs, property equity, how to file, and the cost of divorce.
Our attorneys also often give seminars at our Alpharetta office such as "Intro to Georgia Divorce: What to Expect" and other topics that help provide people with information about all aspects of the divorce process from understanding your options to dealing with the stress and emotion.
