Marietta Divorce Lawyer Providing Sympathetic Representation
Offering an experienced guiding hand to families in transition
Getting a divorce is so emotionally devastating that it’s often hard to trust your own instincts. That’s why at Gleichman Law Firm LLC, I watch out not only for your legal interests, but also for your emotional well-being at a trying time. In divorce, there are many legal issues to be managed concerning your home, children and assets. My years of experience help me make sure your interests, both tangible and intangible, are cared for. During your consultation, I will answer any and all questions you may have about the divorce process and explain to you how I can help.
How do I prepare for a divorce?
Having practiced divorce law in several states, I know that each state has different standards and rules for dissolving your marriage. In Georgia, it is wise to start keeping a record of everything that your life as a couple included in terms of possessions and arrangements. I suggest you document all the particulars of the following:
- Tax returns
- Bankruptcy petitions
- Checking and savings account records
- Any other items related to joint finances
- Household expenses like food and utility bills
As a divorce attorney, I can analyze all this information to help establish your post-divorce needs. These kinds of itemized expenses are especially useful when it comes time to establish terms of child custody, child support or alimony.
How do I file for divorce in Marietta?
To begin with, you and I together need to draw up a complaint, which is a petition that describes your current living situation, the arrangements you have made during your separation for the care of your children and the state of your finances, including any debts you may have racked up separately or together. It should also include the reason you’re seeking a divorce, even though divulging that may feel embarrassing. I keep a relaxed atmosphere in my office because it should be a place where you feel at ease in discussing very personal matters. If you and your spouse want to try mediation before, or instead of, a divorce, I provide a comfortable setting for you. Bear in mind that you can get a no-fault divorce in Georgia in which neither spouse blames the other for the breakdown of your marriage. However, there are 12 other grounds for divorce available in the state. In any of these cases, your emotional condition can become a very important factor in how your divorce turns out.
