Just what is family law?
Family law covers a wide range of topics because it has to do with family related issues and domestic matters. Since so much depends on the outcome of these cases, there is a lot of stress involved and emotions often run very high. It takes a dedicated attorney with a lot of direct experience in family law cases to take them to a successful resolution.
At Waggoner Hastings, our attorneys have years of experience with cases of this type and we can help you with:
- Prenuptial Agreements – Contracts between two people who are about to be married, spelling out the rights of each party in the event of a divorce.
- Post-nuptial Agreements – Contracts between two people who are already married and are not currently planning to divorce, spelling out the rights of each party in the event of a divorce.
- Separation Agreements – Very similar to Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreements, but Separation Agreements are signed at the time the parties separate; they can cover issues like child support and child custody where a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement cannot.
- Modification of Child Support, Child Custody and Alimony – Usually a modification takes place after there has been such a substantial change in circumstance that modification of a previous order is in the best interests of the children.
- Paternity And Legitimation – Used to establish your legal rights and responsibilities regarding a child.
- Family Violence And Restraining Orders – Primarily used to give abuse victims a way to get out of a dangerous situation.
- Domestic Partnership Agreements – Used in place of Prenuptial Agreements because currently same-sex partners cannot legally marry or enter into state-approved civil unions in Georgia.
- Name Changes
