Marietta Divorce Lawyer
Our Marietta Divorce Lawyers
When facing a divorce or considering divorce, the first step is to make absolutely sure that you hire the best Marietta divorce lawyer for your case. How do you know who the best divorce lawyer for your case will be? The best attorney will be experienced in practicing family law and divorce and they will be located near you. Evaluating experience is about more than just years. Does the lawyer focus solely on family law and divorce or do they dabble in several other areas of the law? You should also ask if the divorce law firm is located near you and if they practice in the county your divorce will take place in. If you and your spouse live together, your divorce will likely be filed in the county you live in. If you and your spouse are living separately, you will file for divorce in the county your spouse lives in. If you and your spouse live in Marietta, then your divorce will likely be filed in Cobb County Superior Court.
Location isn't just about convenience. Your divorce lawyer should be familiar with practicing family law in the county that your case will be filed in. It is important to select a lawyer with local experience since different counties have different procedures and rules for family law cases. Meriwether & Tharp's team of Marietta divorce lawyers have over 20 years of experience serving clients throughout Cobb County.
