Compassion And Experience In Divorce

No one expects their marriage to end in divorce, and when it happens, emotions run high, making it hard for the couple to make important legal and financial decisions. Whether you and your ex are in agreement about the conditions of your divorce or caught in a dispute, a divorce attorney can help you protect your interests and make the process easier.

I am a divorce attorney who advises and represents clients in the Valdosta, Georgia, area. I can assist you in filing for divorce and deciding on the terms. I can also represent you in out of court negotiations or courtroom litigation if you have a dispute that can’t be solved amicably.

Division Of Marital Assets And Liabilities

If you do not have a prenuptial agreement, you and your ex will have to identify your marital property and determine how to fairly divide it. This includes:

  • Your home and other real property
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Retirement accounts
  • Business interests

In many ways, a divorce concerns mostly the division of assets acquired throughout the marriage.

If you are filing for an uncontested divorce, an attorney can help you and your spouse negotiate these terms. If you have a dispute and need a divorce lawyer to protect your financial interests, I will represent you assertively.

Divorce Sets The Stage For Other Areas Of Family Law

At the conclusion of your divorce you may end up with a compromise on spousal support  outlining your ongoing financial relationship with your ex. You may have a detailed custody agreement and child support arrangement. These agreements largely dictate the future, but they aren’t by any means set in stone.
