Divorce Hurts... but it doesn't have to be nasty.

The 4 Core Areas for your Divorce

  1. Child Custody
  2. Asset Division
  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.
