Methods of Reaching Resolutions

When family disputes first arise, they are often the results of misunderstandings or miscommunications. However, because they are often very emotional and personal conflicts, they can become very quickly. Because of this, a resolution can seem impossible without some outside help. Mediation can provide a quick and inexpensive avenue for aggrieved spouses or family members to air their conflict and work together to create a resolution that benefits everyone.
If mediation does not solve a family dispute, arbitration can be a useful next step. While similar to mediation, arbitration adds an important element to the dispute: a neutral third party to listen to the case and make decisions, rather than just provide the advice of a mediator. The decisions of the arbitrator are binding on the parties and will be submitted to the court for approval. Because arbitration involves convincing someone else that one side of the story is correct, retaining the services of a skilled attorney can be a huge advantage.

The Role of Family Courts in Atlanta

The Family Division of Fulton County’s Superior Court has the jurisdiction to decide all family law matters that occur in Fulton County. This court can hear cases on any matter that deals with the legal rights of family members and children. Common examples of cases this court hears include:

  • Divorces and separations
  • Custody and visitation of children
  • Alimony and child support payments
  • Modification of support orders
  • Contempt orders when one party violates a court order

To initiate most cases, one party must file the appropriate paperwork with the court and serve it to the other party. For example, if one spouse in a marriage wishes to divorce, they must file a complaint with the courthouse and have the other spouse served with the complaint. An Atlanta family lawyer could help clients to navigate the Family Division’s rules to initiate cases and protect their rights.
