How the Family Law Bar Gets Better

Every year at this time, the Georgia Family Law Bar comes together to study how to improve our practice. Usually, we cover substantive topics such as child custody and alimony and child support and Qualified Domestic Relations Orders and 401ks. This is good. This is necessary because it makes us all better lawyers at the substance of our practice.

Social Security and Other Same-Sex Spousal Rights

The landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges, legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the country, raises issues that should be discussed with a good marriage and estate planning lawyer in Georgia. Due to same sex couples' prior inability to marry legally under the laws of their State, many same sex couples now planning to marry are typically older than the average newlywed couple. One important issue to consider under these facts is Social Security.

And, to me, every last bit of it is family law.

Family Law: Indiana, Arkansas and Georgia Legislation, Part II

Family Law and Selma 1965 - 2015

Last night, I took the family to the movies to watch Selma. Having lived through that era with our own redneck microcosm of racist violence in Cobb County, including living in the same city as the bastard that killed those little girls in the Birmingham church, much of the movie struck a chord, struck home.
