What Is Spousal Support?

When you go to family law court with your divorce attorney in Cumming, the judge will rule on a number of issues involved in the case, including spousal support. Spousal support, which is also known as alimony, refers to payments made from one spouse to the other. Under family law, the judge can award different types of alimony, such as temporary alimony for payment to be made while the divorce is pending or alimony payments after the divorce has been finalized. These post-divorce payments are generally in the form of lump sum alimony, periodic alimony, or permanent alimony.

What Are Mediation Services?

Mediation is a process where a mediator helps parties with a disagreement see if an agreement can be reached. The mediator cannot force the parties to come to an agreement, the agreement must be voluntary. In contrast, a judge's ruling on a matter is legally binding. Additionally, mediation services are more cost-effective than lawsuits and mediation can be less stressful than going to court.

Understanding Types of Child Custody Agreements

When a family court judge establishes a child custody arrangement, there are many factors he or she will consider. The overriding issue under family law is which arrangement would be in the child's best interests. To determine this, the family law judge may consider whether one or both parents would be considered fit parents, and whether one or both parents has a documented history of substance abuse, domestic violence, or other criminal activity. When you consult a divorce attorney in Cumming, be sure to disclose any information that might influence the judge's decision.
