Fulton County Family Court: 1004 Objection

Only one county in Georgia has a family court.  That's Fulton County.  There are huge differences between Fulton County's Family Court and every other Court in the State of Georgia.  Tonight's post is about one of those differences and how not to get hurt yourself by using it.

Family Law: Domestically Dirty Words, Part I

When family law clients first visit my office, they bring emotions into the room.  These range from anger (because they were served with a complaint) to broken-ness (because of divorce) to terrified (because child custody is at issue).  Despite these varying emotions, clients often draw a line in the sand and, without hesitation, make it quite clear they are "not going to settle," and demanding a (affectionately speaking) "pitbull in a skirt" to fight for them.

Even the laundry basket can become a source of debate. Is that last object really important? Almost never. That last object becomes a symbol. The reality hits one or both of you:  once that last object's fate has been determined, the marriage is theoretically over.

Family Law: Association of Family and Conciliation Courts

We've just returned from an intensive Family Law conference in Toronto.  The conference was organized by the Association of Family and Concilation Courts.  I had not heard of them before but we were asked to come to the conference to present on the work that we are doing.
