Family Law Attorneys

If you and your spouse are in the process of ending your marriage, you are probably already aware that you have many things to sort out. From determining the type of divorce to pursue to figuring out matters related to your finances and the custody of your children, the process can seem overwhelming.

The experienced attorneys at Wadkins & Wadkins are ready to help you through this challenging time. We can assist with every aspect of your divorce, advocating on your behalf at each step of the way.

Divorce

In Georgia, there are several types of divorce including annulment and no fault. However before filing for divorce, you and your spouse must be legally separated for a period of six months or more.

Custody

One of the most important aspects of any divorce proceeding that involves children is determining where the child or children will spend their time. Whether you are seeking joint or full custody, our attorneys can help you.

Child Support

Just as important as meeting your child’s emotional needs, his or her physical needs must be taken into consideration. Raising a child is expensive and both parents have a financial responsibility to their children.

Division of Property

Depending on the circumstances of your divorce, it may be necessary to determine who gets what in regard to your marital property. If you own a home, property, vehicles or have any shared assets, who will retain ownership after your marriage is terminated?

Alimony and Spousal Support

Another financial consideration involves determining how much spousal support or alimony one or both former spouses is entitled to. The court will take many factors into consideration when determining this, and having an experienced legal advocate on your side will be invaluable.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Pre- and postnuptial agreements are legally binding documents written either before or after a marriage to define which assets belong to each spouse. They are intended to simplify the process of dividing property in the event of a divorce.
