Managing a divorce process which involves children is very challenging. Custody issues, behavioral issues and changes to schedules need to be considered in working through your divorce process. In Georgia, the divorce courts prefer that parents place a priority on the welfare and care of their children.
The Shapiro Law Group provides legal counsel for Divorce, Legitimation, Custody Disputes, Modifications and Contempt Actions. Our family law services also include common needs such as adoption, guardianship, prenuptial agreements, and same-sex marriages.
In Georgia, spousal support payments may become part of how the marital property distribution is awarded. Spousal support, or alimony, is not a guaranteed award, and is not available if the spouse desiring support payments is guilty of adultery or desertion.
Property division in a Georgia divorce is based on subjective "equitable distribution" law instead of the "community property" law used in many other states.
