DIVORCE LAW

Powerful Defense for Your Divorce Case

Our experienced team understands that divorce is more than just a legal process; it’s a significant life transition that requires careful consideration of emotional, financial, and familial impacts. We strive to offer comprehensive support, ensuring our clients are fully informed about their rights and options at every stage of the proceedings.

One of the critical aspects of divorce law that we emphasize is the equitable distribution of assets. Georgia is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital property is divided fairly, but not necessarily equally, between spouses. Our attorneys are skilled in negotiating and litigating to protect our clients’ interests, whether it involves real estate, investments, retirement accounts, or personal property. We work diligently to uncover all assets and ensure a fair division, taking into account factors such as the length of the marriage, the financial contributions of each party, and the future needs of our clients.

At Tessie D. Edwards & Associates, we prioritize the best interests of the children involved, advocating for arrangements that provide stability and security. Whether through mediation or litigation, our goal is to achieve parenting plans that facilitate positive relationships between children and both parents. We assist in determining appropriate child support arrangements that reflect the financial circumstances and responsibilities of each parent, ensuring that our clients and their children are supported throughout and after the divorce process.

At Tessie D. Edwards & Associates, we understand that these changes can impact child custody, visitation, child support, and alimony arrangements. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping clients navigate the legal process of modifying divorce agreements to better reflect their current needs and situations. We provide personalized guidance to ensure that modifications are pursued effectively and efficiently, always prioritizing the best interests of our clients and their families.

Child custody and visitation arrangements are often subject to modification due to changes in either parent’s or the child’s circumstances. Whether it’s a job relocation, changes in a child’s needs, or shifts in a parent’s lifestyle, our team is equipped to handle these adjustments with sensitivity and expertise. We work closely with clients to present compelling cases to the court, advocating for custody and visitation schedules that serve the best interests of the children while accommodating the evolving dynamics of family life. Our goal is to create stable and supportive environments for children, ensuring they maintain healthy relationships with both parents.

Financial aspects of divorce, such as child support and alimony, may also require modification. Economic shifts, such as job loss, salary changes, or significant health issues, can impact one’s ability to meet the terms of the original agreement. At Tessie D. Edwards & Associates, we assist clients in petitioning the court for adjustments that reflect their current financial realities. Our attorneys meticulously prepare documentation and evidence to support requests for modification, striving to achieve fair and sustainable outcomes. We are committed to ensuring that our clients’ financial obligations are reasonable and manageable, fostering long-term stability and peace of mind.

Dividing marital property during a divorce can be a complex and contentious process. At Tessie D. Edwards & Associates, we specialize in providing expert legal guidance to ensure that property division is handled fairly and equitably. Georgia is an equitable distribution state, which means that marital assets are divided based on fairness, considering various factors rather than splitting them equally. Our dedicated team works diligently to protect our clients’ interests, ensuring that all assets and liabilities are accounted for and distributed in a manner that reflects each party’s contributions and future needs.

Our approach to property division involves a comprehensive analysis of all marital assets, including real estate, investments, retirement accounts, business interests, and personal property. We understand that each divorce case is unique, requiring personalized strategies to achieve the best outcomes. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and litigators, prepared to advocate vigorously on behalf of our clients whether through settlement discussions or in court. We strive to uncover any hidden assets and ensure that the division process is transparent and just, considering factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s financial and non-financial contributions, and their economic circumstances post-divorce.

At Tessie D. Edwards & Associates, we also recognize the importance of addressing debts and liabilities during property division. Equitable distribution encompasses not only assets but also any shared debts accumulated during the marriage. Our attorneys work meticulously to achieve a fair allocation of both assets and debts, helping clients emerge from the divorce process with financial clarity and stability. We provide ongoing support and guidance, ensuring that our clients understand their rights and responsibilities throughout the property division process. Our ultimate goal is to help clients achieve a fair settlement that positions them for a secure and prosperous future.
