Attorneys Experienced In The Issues Involved In Divorce For Men

Men and women often have different goals in divorce. From your initial consultation, through negotiations with your ex and her attorney, our lawyers will focus on the issues that are important to you, including:

  • Helping you keep the property that is yours
  • Achieving a fair division of property acquired during your marriage

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.

Additionally, alimony is not a given in Georgia divorces. Men are 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. Gender is not one of the factors that determines who should pay or receive alimony.

Helping You Understand Fathers’ Rights In Divorce

Our lawyers will explain your rights and obligations with respect to issues such as child custody and child support. We work to negotiate a child custody and visitation agreement to protect your rights as a father. 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.

In Georgia, child support is based on the incomes of both parents, the number of children you support and the custody arrangement. Many fathers assume that there is little they can do to affect the amount of support they are required to pay. In reality, there is much an experienced attorney can do to ensure that support requirements are reasonable. 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.

Questions Men Often Have About Divorce

It’s natural to wonder what life will look like after your divorce. You may even be worried about the outcome. We’ve compiled a list of things our male divorce clients are frequently concerned about and answered them to give you an idea of what lies ahead.

How do the courts make child custody decisions?

When making child custody decisions, the courts consider what arrangement would be in the child’s best interests. Numerous factors play into this decision, but the courts will always award child custody to the parent best equipped to care for the child.

Do mothers always get child custody?

It may seem like mothers get preferential treatment, but they don’t always get child custody. If the child’s father is the one who can care for them best, then the courts will award custody to the father. At The Siemon Law Firm, we fight to uphold fathers’ custody rights in Georgia divorces.

Do women always get alimony in Georgia divorces?

Alimony is intended to help lower-earning spouses maintain the standard of living they had during their marriage or keep them financially stable until they can do so on their own. While women often receive these payments, men who were the lower-earning spouse in their marriage can also receive these payments.

Is alimony going to break the bank?

Alimony isn’t designed to be punitive to men but rather to offset financial burdens resulting from a divorce. At The Siemon Law Firm, we strive to secure reasonable alimony payment orders for divorcing men.

How does property division work in Georgia?

The courts divide marital property equitably in Georgia divorces. An equitable division of marital property could be an even 50/50 split, 60/40 or many other arrangements, as long as they are fair and equitable. In other words, you don’t need to worry about losing everything to your ex-spouse.

Men often go into divorce thinking they’ll get the short end of the stick, but that’s not how the law works, especially when you have powerful legal representation fighting to protect your interests.
