Johns Creek Divorce Lawyer
Our Johns Creek Divorce Lawyers
With so many options out there, how are you supposed to select the best Johns Creek divorce lawyer for you case? It's best to first evaluate the firm's experience level with divorce and family cases. Are divorce and family law issues their focus or do they practice in other areas as well? Next, you should consider that firm's location. If you live together with your spouse, the divorce will likely be filed in the county that you two live in. If you live separately, you will file your divorce in the county that your spouse lives in. If your spouse lives in Johns Creek, your case will likely be filed in Fulton County Superior Court. However, Johns Creek is located near where Fulton, Gwinnett and Forsyth intersect. Be sure to be aware of which county is relevant for your case.
Seeking out a divorce law firm near you isn't just for convenience, it means that the law firm probably has experience dealing with divorce and family law cases in the county where you will file your case. Experience and familiarity in dealing with local judges and opposing counsel can often be advantageous. Meriwether & Tharp's Johns Creek office is fully staffed and has been helping divorce and family law clients through difficult times throughout Fulton and Gwinnett for over 20 years.
