I recently had an exciting opportunity to participate in a chili cook-off contest in Cobb County, Georgia. There were many contestants, and each provided a small sample for tasting. As I was strolling around and tasting samples, I realized how different each sample tasted. Some were spicy and others were mild. Some were watery and others were thick. As a lawyer who has been practicing divorce and family law in the metro Atlanta area, from Cobb County to Gwinnett County, I feel that the courts and judges in each county have a distinctive "flavor."
Timing is everything in family law. "The early bird gets the worm," and "you snooze, you lose," operate like comandments in our arena.
In cases involving a child, often the two biggest areas of contention circle around child support and visitation. Frequently, cases will only make their way into court because of child support and visitation. As parents, it is natural to tie these issues together and think that if you have one, you must have the other - but in the eyes of Georgia Law this is not always so neatly packaged.
