Dallas Divorce Lawyer
Our Dallas Divorce Lawyers
Reaching the goals you have set for your divorce depends on selecting the best Dallas divorce lawyer for your case. How do you choose the best divorce attorney for your case? There are two important factors to consider when shopping for an attorney: 1) location and 2) experience trying cases in the county where your divorce will be filed. Determining the county in which your case will be filed is simple. If you and your spouse are currently living together, your divorce will likely be filed in the county where you live. If you and your spouse live in Dallas, Georgia your case will probably be filed in Paulding County Superior Court, but if you and your spouse live separately, your case will likely be filed in the county where your spouse lives.
Although choosing a divorce lawyer whose office is located near you is convenient, when it comes to divorce and family law cases, because different counties and judges have unique local rules and preferences, it is important to select a lawyer who has experience trying cases in the county where your case will be filed. Meriwether & Tharp's fully staffed Dallas/Marietta office has been successfully representing clients in Dallas and Paulding County for over 20 years.
