Asset Division

When a same-sex relationship does not work out, the stakes are typically high, both personally and financially. Many LGBT couples co-own significant assets, including houses, businesses and bank accounts. Fairly dividing these assets when the relationship ends is a job for a skilled lawyer.

At The Siemon Law Firm in Georgia, our LGBT family law attorneys have built a strong and widespread reputation for offering practical counsel focused on obtaining positive results for the individuals whose futures are in our hands. We recognize that your challenges and priorities are uniquely yours, and therefore we maintain a commitment to devoting as much time and personal attention to you as you need.

Bringing A Team Approach To Property Division Disputes

We structure our team and resources in a way that enhances communication and makes it possible to provide our clients with the level of quality assistance they deserve. Because we disseminate applicable information about each client within the team, a client never has to rely upon only a single lawyer to answer a question or return a call. Instead, he or she benefits from having a knowledgeable and trusted network of legal guidance and advocacy.

Protecting Yourself From Creditors

When it comes to property division, it is not only assets that need to be divided between the two parties. Any debts incurred over the course of your marriage and, in some cases, debts that were brought into the marriage are subject to division as well. We can help ensure that any debts are divided fairly and that one party does not end up on the hook with creditors for debts that he or she is not responsible for incurring.

Attorneys For Custody Issues

At The Siemon Law Firm, our lawyers understand the importance you place on your relationships with your children. You may have helped raise your spouse's son or daughter from a previous relationship, and now he or she is refusing to let you see the child. Or, you may have adopted a child and are now ending your relationship with each other. In every case, our mission is to help you understand your options and pursue your goals.

We will strive to understand your particular situation and work directly with you to develop a parenting plan or visitation arrangement that is tailored to your needs and in the child's best interests. We want to give LGBT individuals a voice in negotiations, mediation and in the courtroom.

Answering Your Custody And Visitation Questions

Our custody lawyers can answer your questions about the custody laws in Georgia and explain your legal rights as an LGBT parent. We will advise you about:

  • Pursuing custody or visitation if you are not the child's biological parent
  • Mediating or negotiating a parenting plan
  • Protecting a child you care about from domestic violence or abuse
