The results are just in and The Manely Firm has four Super Lawyers Rising Stars working tirelessly for our Georgia families!
When we think about raising kids, college expenses seem to be "the end of the road," one of the last hurdles to overcome in financially supporting the children. That is, of course, if you don't plan to pay for a big wedding. Family Law plays a role here, as well.
One of my most favorite quotes about parenting is the quote by Robert Fulghum: "Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you". Another quote I stand by is that "it takes a village to raise a child". In custody cases, many people are watching you. And that village (the judge) is going to decide who gets custody of your children, if you leave it up to them.
As you probably know, we handle a lot of international family law issues from international divorce to division of international property to international custody to international child abduction. In short, at The Manely Firm, we do a lot of international family law. Since so much of our practice is international, we have to know how to successfully move within, not just our own courts but the courts of many other jurisdictions and how to bring international parties before our courts so that resolution of legal issues can be achieved.
At The Manely Firm, P.C. we have clients from all over the world -from Mexico to Malaysia, from Malta to Morocco, from Moldova to Maldives, from Monaco to Mongolia.
We live in a strange and fast p aced world where events' correlations are unpredictable. Relations between countries could change overnight. For example, Great Britain's recent decision to leave the European Union will be the beginning of major geopolitical changes - just like it happened with the Soviet Union. I lived through changes of that magnitude during the dissolution of the USSR and can testify firsthand that the consequences of Great Britain leaving the European Union will echo for many years to come and will affect every major county in the world.
I am really excited to write this blog post and to share information about an amazing and rare organization I recently learned about. I am in utter disbelief that I only now found out about this organization and I am thankful that they exist and are located in Georgia. It is a unique source of help that enables many people to reach safety.
Happy Mother's Day to all my colleagues, clients, and friends!
I hope you all had a great restful weekend and enjoyed spending time with your families. As you know, The Manely Firm is immersed in international law and that means enmeshed in our inte1national communities. Atlanta is a hot bed of international activity. A lot of different intenrntional events were happening around Atlanta this weekend.
Did you know that the International Day Of Families has been observed on May I 5th every year since 1993, per UN General Assembly's initiative? Having a special day to celebrate the Inten1ational Day of Families shows how important is the concept of family to the international community.
