Building Bridges, Not Burning Them

The Manely Firm, P.C. has six locations so far. We are continuing to grow. Our founding attorney is Michael Manely, the only attorney to have a unanimous win before the United States Supreme Court on a family law case. His wife, Shelia Manely, was my classmate in law school. She does a lot for the firm, including decorating each office. When she was setting up the office in my hometown, Gainesville, she brought a picture of a bridge.

Can you marry your cousin in Georgia?

I have several friends who recently took the Bar Exam. In part, the Bar Exam requires exam takers to memorize laws and then take an intense exam based solely off of their memory. Many joke that this is just a hazing ritual, because in the real world, attorneys do not memorize laws. We look them up. We do not rely on memory alone because what if we remember incorrectly? Additionally, laws often change so it's important to do your research.

Trapped in Georgia?

Sally moved to Georgia after she met and fell in love with Joe. Sally left everything behind: her home, her family, her friends. She was young and in love. All she needed was Joe. Joe had a stable job and owned his own house. They talked about their future together. They would have a lot of children and Sally would be a stay-at-home mom. His sweet, retired parents lived down the street and could help with the babies. She would lead a charmed life and would have everything she had always dreamed of. Sally's parents were upset that she rushed into a marriage, but they didn't feel what she felt. Parents just don't understand.

Be Sure to Put it in Writing

Amy showed me the final written order, which consisted of a settlement agreement between the parties that was signed off by the judge. It clearly stated that she would get every other weekend, but she was now upset that she was indeed only getting every other weekend.

Family Law: To Unring the Bell

Often, the toughest consultations are the ones where the client comes to us after attempting to handle their own case. It's a lot harder to fix what's been done than it is to handle the case the right way to begin with. It's ironic that a lot of people uy to save money by handling their own case but end up spending a lot more money fixing errors they had made. 

Parental Alienation - but by whom?

Daniel was always close to his daughter Kelly. Even though he was divorced from Kelly's mom, Amy, he and Amy got along well and divided their time with Kelly almost 50/50. Rather than alienating each other, Daniel and Amy supported each other as parents for their precious little girl.

As if Divorce Weren't Hard Enough: Losing Friends

When you go through struggles, you figure out very quickly who your real friends are. This is especially true when you're getting divorced. What is always surprising to my clients and what was surprising to me personally when I got divorced over a decade ago is how "friends" react. 

Fish Visitation and Other Important Topics

As a family law attorney, I fight over major life-changing issues. I help clients transition their families into their new normal. I help parents fight for their children. I've worked on high stakes international kidnaping cases. I help victims leave abusive relationships, which may have helped to save their lives. I help children who have been molested. At The Manely Finn, we deal with really major topics.
