Are you looking to protect a family heirloom or inheritance? Are you worried your spouse may take your children away? Will you need help paying your bills after separating from your spouse? At the Van Dora Law Firm, we know how to make Georgia family law work for you. We can help you protect your assets, and fight for alimony (when appropriate), so you can move on comfortably into the next phase of your life.
Do you and your spouse agree that it’s time for a divorce? Can you sit together to work out the division of property, custody, parenting time, and other issues? If so, you may be able to file an uncontested divorce action. Georgia law allows for a simplified process in uncontested matters. If you and your spouse can work out who will take which assets and debts, and how child custody and parenting time will be divided, you may be able to finish your divorce faster, and with less time in court.
At The Van Dora Law Firm, we know that for some families, eliminating conflict is as important as ending the marriage itself. We will work with you and your spouse to resolve any disputes and prepare the paperwork for your uncontested divorce. That way you can avoid the time and expense of drawn-out court proceedings.
When there was never a marriage, you don’t need a divorce. But even unmarried parents find themselves in Georgia family court. If fights with your child’s other parent mean a child custody battle is in your future, we can help. We will help you prove what is in your child’s best interests. We’ll guide you through the creation of a parenting plan that the court will accept that puts your kids and your priorities first.
We know that raising children can be expensive, so we make sure every child custody case we handle ends with a child support order our clients can use to meet their children’s needs, without breaking the bank. In Georgia all child support is based on a formula. Our family law team will do the work to be sure all the factors are considered, including parents’ income, health insurance premiums, and the support of other children.
