Divorce / Relationship Dissolution

North Georgia Divorce Lawyers

The end of a relationship or marriage is a personal stressor and a legally significant event. There are many issues to be addressed: care for children, division of assets, apportionment of debt, and alimony. Evans & Rhodes, LLC divorce lawyers provide comprehensive and attentive representation to clients experiencing the emotional and financial stress of divorce. From the outset of representation, we help our clients assess their current financial situation, determine what assets and liabilities must be secured or protected, and devise a strategy for obtaining a realistic and favorable outcome.

Property Division in Divorce

Many divorce cases require a factual determination of what assets (or debts) are marital or non-marital (separate) property, and these issues range from the very simple to highly complex.

In Georgia, marital property is subject to “equitable division.” Equitable does not necessarily mean equal. What each party receives as “equitable division of property” depends on many factors: the amount of assets and debt to be divided, any separate assets available to either spouse, and the needs and conduct of each spouse.

Child Custody and Child Support
Matters involving children are among the most difficult and contentious issues in the realm of family law. Evans & Rhodes, LLC has a specialized practice devoted to litigation involving children.

Alimony

Georgia recognizes several different types and terms for alimony: permanent, periodic, temporary, lump sum, and gross. Some of these terms mean the same thing as other terms while others are drastically different. Make sure your divorce settlement agreement is specific about what type of alimony you are paying receiving.

Adultery and Divorce

Infidelity can be a major factor in divorce cases, but it is not necessarily the deciding factor for a favorable or unfavorable outcome. In apportioning property, dividing debt, determining child custody, and awarding alimony, the Court considers many factors including the parties’ conduct before and during separation and their contributions to the marriage.
