Acworth Divorce Lawyer
Our Acworth Divorce Lawyers
At Meriwether & Tharp, we understand that divorce can be stressful, emotional, complex, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. The first step is to hire the best Acworth divorce lawyer for your case. Your case will probably be filed in the county where you and your spouse live, but if you and your spouse live separately, your divorce will likely be filed in the county where your spouse lives. An Acworth divorce would likely be filed in Cobb County Superior Court.
If you are searching for the best divorce lawyer for your case, it can certainly be worthwhile to select a family law attorney near you who has experience dealing with divorce issues (child custody, child support, property division, alimony etc.). In Georgia, different counties may have different local rules and local judges may have unique preferences. So, hiring a law firm with significant experience trying cases in your area would be most advantageous. Meriwether & Tharp's Acworth/Marietta office is fully staffed and has been helping Cobb county divorce and family law clients through difficult times since 1998.
