Providing Solutions To Family Law Matters
At The Peterson Firm, our attorney is dedicated to helping people resolve difficult family law problems. Whether you are going through a divorce and need help dividing significant assets, or you are facing a contentious issue concerning child custody, we are here to help you protect your interests and find the best path forward to help you achieve your goals.
Comprehensive Family Legal Representation
Our lawyer helps people with a wide range of family legal matters, including:
Divorce proceedings: Whether your split is relatively amicable or is hotly contested, we can help guide you through the divorce process. We can help negotiate a settlement or provide you with tenacious advocacy in the court system.
Spousal support: Also known as alimony, spousal support is designed to help one party continue to enjoy the life to which they were accustomed during the marriage. Whether you are seeking support payments or are being requested to make payments, we can help assert your interests and ensure that financial support is reasonable.
Child support: Whether you are requesting support or are being asked to provide child support, we can let you know how support determinations are made and what you may expect to pay or receive.
Child custody and visitation: Issues surrounding child custody are often one the most contentious aspects of any divorce proceeding. We can inform of the various types of custody available in Georgia, help identify what you hope to achieve and determine the best way to resolve your custody dispute.
Division of property: Under the law, property division is to be carried out in a fair and equitable manner. It is important to keep in mind that “equitable” does not mean the same thing as “equal.” We handle complex property division matters involving significant assets, employing experts when necessary to properly identify and value assets which are subject to division.
Division of retirement plans: High net worth divorce proceedings often involve dividing non-qualified retirement plans. We can help you navigate this often-complicated process.
Prenuptial agreements: A prenuptial or a post-nuptial agreement is not about distrust or an acknowledgment that you expect your marriage to fail. Rather, they are best thought of as a type of insurance policy. You hope that you will never have to make a claim, but you can rest easy knowing your assets will be protected should the unthinkable ever happen.
