Issues such as divorce, child custody, alimony, and child support are all matters heard by the Superior Courts of Georgia. In short, a family court provides any person a safe and equitable place to resolve legal matters concerning their family. Therefore, it is vital to understand how family court works and your rights in these hearings.
An Atlanta family lawyer may be able to provide this essential help. They can work to help you understand the relevant laws, pursue your rights in court, and work towards a solution that meets your family’s unique needs.
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 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:
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.
Facing the prospect of a case in family court can be intimidating and stressful. Perhaps you need to ask a court to intervene in a dispute. Or maybe you were served with papers and needs to respond. In either event, the outcome of a family law case can have long-lasting effects.
