Family law (also called matrimonial law or the law of domestic relations) is an area of the law that deals with family matters and domestic relations. Legal matters involving family members can be traumatic for everyone, especially if there are children involved. While some family law matters in Georgia may be handled without counsel, processes such as divorce and child custody often require the skill and expertise of an attorney. Issues may arise in family law where there is a question as to the laws of the jurisdiction that apply to the marriage or family relationship or to custody and divorce, and whether a divorce or child custody order is recognized under the laws of another jurisdiction.
The best way to help your Atlanta divorce lawyer prepare your case is to be prepared yourself. Make sure you have all relevant financial documents, such as bank accounts, mortgage payment records, and credit card statements. Gather all documents related to your child or children, such as school and health records, as well as information regarding how much it costs to care for your children each month. Show your attorney copies of all insurance policies that include you and your spouse or children, and bring along a copy of your wills. Records that support or refute charges of family or domestic violence can have a big impact on judges' decisions in divorce cases.
