Attorneys Who Will Protect Your Rights in Divorce
From your initial consultation with a divorce attorney at our firm, through negotiations with your spouse and her attorney, we will keep our focus on the issues that are important to you, such as:
- Marital property division: Georgia courts award property by the law of equitable distribution, which is not necessarily the same as equal. Men are just as likely as women to receive the marital home or obtain a greater share of marital property.
- Alimony: Men just as likely to pay — or receive — alimony as their spouse. Spousal support is based on factors such as need and the higher-earning spouse's ability to pay, not on gender.
- Child custody: Courts are just as likely to award child custody to a father as a mother. Courts give weight to who has been the primary caretaker, regardless of gender.
- Child support: In Georgia, child support is based on the incomes of both parents, the number of children you support, and the custody arrangement. If you have 50-50 child custody and both you and your ex spouse earn roughly the same amount, you may not have to pay support.
