Ending a marriage is one of life's most difficult decisions and experiences. It affects you, your children and your family. Regardless of the reasons that brought you to this crossroads, we can smooth the way toward resolution. The stakes are high for everyone involved. The Georgia family law statutes are complex and extensive. This is no time for an inexperienced lawyer. At Perrotta & Cahn, Attorneys at Law, our compassionate divorce lawyers have represented countless parties in divorce actions. We're empathetic while representing your best interests in a situation that often turns adversarial.
What Are The Areas Of Divorce Of Which I Should Be Aware?
Divorce law has many facets, any one of which can make your life difficult if improperly handled. Some of the most significant issues the family law attorneys in our Dallas, Dalton, Cartersville and Calhoun offices work with are child custody, visitation rights and support. Failure to steadfastly assert your rights as a parent could result in a child custody arrangement that you never intended. Likewise, even though you may get the visitation schedule you wanted, if the spouse with primary custody is allowed to select any geographic area in which to reside, you may see your children much less than intended. The divorce cases our law firm take on touch on a number of critical issues, including:
- Initiation of the divorce action
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal maintenance and alimony
- Property division
- Fathers' rights
- Grandparents' rights
What Mistakes Should I Avoid?
There are many. Even if this isn't your first divorce, there is no substitute for a divorce lawyer's judgment. For example, fathers' rights and those of the grandparents too often get lost in the visitation and custody negotiations. They're important. Fathers' and grandparents' involvement in the children's lives as they grow up can have a lifelong, positive impact. Child support is another complicated area filled with legal land mines for the inexperienced child support attorney. Our Cartersville and Calhoun-area divorce attorneys can see these problems and neutralize them before they become an issue.
What If My Divorce Is Final?
Even if the divorce case is closed and years old, things can change. Financial circumstances change, and so do the issues associated with children. We often return to family court with valid reasons for divorce decree modifications. These adjustments often involve custody and support, visitation rights and alimony.
