Why Should I Hire an Attorney?

Because there are so many factors involved in a divorce, you may wish to consider working with a lawyer to serve as an unbiased resource who can protect your best interests. Legal representation might also reduce the timeline of your divorce and eliminate the headache of filing paperwork with the court on your own. Below, you’ll get a look at some of the specific areas where a trusted family law attorney may be most helpful:

Property Division

Georgia is not a community property state, which means that one partner does not automatically have rights to the assets and property acquired by the other partner during the marriage. Therefore, property division is based on the financial status of each partner, the future needs of both spouses and any evidence of misconduct during the marriage. An experienced Cumming property division attorney can investigate the details of your marriage to be sure that property distribution does not leave you without sufficient assets.

Spousal Support

Also known as alimony, spousal support is often a point of contention in divorce agreements, so you may need a lawyer to preserve your interests and make a case for your financial needs.

Child Custody

Having a lawyer work with you to file for a divorce can ensure that the right arrangements are made for your children in terms of custody and visitation. It can be easy to let personal disagreements influence custody agreements, and this may result in arrangements that are not ideal for your children.
