Lawyers Who Understand Divorce for Mothers
From your initial consultation with a lawyer at our Alpharetta or Cumming office through your final divorce orders, we will represent your interests in issues that are important for you, such as:
- Division of marital property: In Georgia, equitable distribution is the law when it comes to marital property division. However, equitable doesn't necessarily mean equal. In determining what is equitable, courts will consider factors such as the future financial needs, earning potential and financial dependency of one spouse on another.
- Alimony: Spousal support in Georgia is based on financial need and the higher-earning spouse's ability to pay.
- Custody: While Georgia laws are gender-neutral, courts give preference to the parent who has been the primary caretaker. Most of the time it is the mother serves as the primary caretaker and does such things as getting the children ready for school and taking care of sick children.
- Child support: In Georgia, child support is based on both parents' incomes, the number of children, and the number of overnight visits each parent has during the year.
