Finding the Best Athens Divorce Lawyers

With divorce and family law matters, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Don't stress. The first step is simple - hire the best Athens divorce lawyer for your case. A quick Google search in the Athens area reveals that there are numerous divorce attorneys available. The real question is, "how do you know which lawyer would be the best Athens divorce attorney for your case?" Divorce is a complex area of the law that is unique from other areas. Some counties in Georgia even have their own dedicated family law courts with their own rules and procedures that need to be followed. Thus, experience practicing family is what's important. A lawyer that practiced personal injury for 25+ years but never practiced family law is not who you want. The most experienced divorce lawyers are typically the ones that focus their practice solely on family law and divorce.

Experience practicing family law and divorce is not the only relevant metric. When choosing a divorce lawyer or law firm, you should always consider the firm's location. It's important to select an attorney that has experience practicing family law in the county where your divorce will be heard. If you and your spouse still live together, your divorce will likely be heard in the county that you two live in. If you and your spouse currently live apart, your divorce will likely be filed in the county that your spouse lives in. It's important to think about where your case would be filed. If you live in Athens, it's possible that your case would be filed in Clarke County. If you live around the Athens area, your case could be filed in Oconee County, Madison County, Oglethorpe County, or Jackson County. It's important to make sure that the firm you are considering practices in or around your county. Some counties have their own unique rules and procedures so you want to make sure the firm you hire practices in the Athens area. Meriwether & Tharp's Athens office is fully staffed. At Meriwether & Tharp, we have been helping divorce and family law clients through difficult times for over 25 years.
