Of all the issues arising from the divorce process, child custody and visitation matters are typically the most emotional and combative.
In Georgia, the court determines who the child will live with based on the individual relationship the child has with each parent, versus favoring the mother over the father, or vice versa. It is important to find out facts and possible options at the earliest possible stage regarding custody and child custody disputes, and our Athens, Georgia divorce lawyers will ensure you are informed and participate in the decision making process every step of the way.
The issue of child support during a divorce can present a number of complicating factors, especially when taking into consideration that a family separated is not as economically viable as a family together. Resources are divided and expenses increase. The level of child support is determined by formulas in the law and when a change in circumstances occurs, you can seek a child support modification. It is the court's job to determine, as well as enforce, these modifications.
Our attorneys provide expert representation in all aspects of child support, including:
* Determination of temporary as well as permanent child support
* Child Support Modifications
* Enforcement of child support orders
* Collection of child support owed
* Paternity as it relates to child support
