Compassionate, Strategic and Intelligent Atlanta Divorce Lawyers
Many law firms only handle divorce cases in an aggressive manner. While aggressive strategies are the best option in some circumstances, there are times when they work against a clients’ divorce goals. We can aggressively represent your interests when necessary, but our Atlanta divorce attorneys understand that an aggressive approach is sometimes counterproductive.
At The Manely Firm, P.C., in Georgia, we take a more commonsense approach. When we handle divorce cases, we analyze the situation to offer strategic and intelligent representation. Our Atlanta divorce lawyers take multiple approaches because we know that the best approach is the one that fits your particular situation. Sometimes this means a quick divorce settlement, while other times it means turning to well thought out litigation.
About Divorce in Georgia
In Georgia, there are 13 grounds for divorce, one of which is infidelity. Couples in Georgia do not need grounds for divorce, however, to dissolve a marriage. Simply saying the marriage is “irretrievably broken” qualifies as a no-fault ground for divorce.
Before filing for divorce in Georgia, at least one spouse must have lived in the state for six months. Regardless of the living arrangements, spouses must be separated in the legal sense before one can file for divorce.
Once a spouse files for divorce there are often many issues that must be decided such as:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Division of marital assets and debt
- Spousal support/alimony
In some cases, couples may be dealing with other issues because of significant wealth and holdings. At The Manely Firm, P.C., we help families in any tax bracket navigate the divorce process and resolve family matters.
“When your or your family’s welfare is at stake, you want an attorney with a reputation for winning. The worst settlement you can make is to settle for an attorney without a winning track record.” — Michael E. Manely
