The 4 Core Areas of Divorce

  1. Child Custody

  3. Child Support
  4. Alimony
  • Child Custody

    Child custody defines the relationship between both divorcing parents and their minor children. There are two major types of custody – physical custody and legal custody.

  • Asset Division

    There are two key concepts for asset division: 1) defining what exactly is (and isn’t) marital; and, 2) noting Georgia does not require an equal division of property.

    Child support is financial support that is paid from one parent to another to help pay for the various costs associated with raising the minor children.
