Cumming Divorce Attorney

Guiding Clients through Divorce & to a Better Future

During divorce, every part of your life will be scrutinized, including your family relationships, your personality traits and your finances. At The Epps Law Group, we understand how uncomfortable it can be to have a stranger this involved in your life. That is why we strive to be seen as more than your lawyer, we want you to consider us your counselor and friend. As your counselor, friend and legal adviser, we promise you this: We will always tell you the truth. Divorce is tough, we won’t sugarcoat the situation. You will have to make compromises throughout the divorce process. But our Cumming divorce lawyer are prepared to make sure you don’t compromise more than is necessary. Together, we will help you leave your marriage in a position that allows you to build the life you want.

Contested Divorce

Georgia law has provisions for a “contested divorce.” Filing a contested divorce in Georgia requires the plaintiff to cite at least one of the 12 fault grounds for contested divorce.

The 12 fault grounds for contested divorce are:

  • Marriage between close blood relatives
  • Mental incapacity at the time of marriage
  • Impotency at the time of marriage
  • Adultery occurring during the marriage
  • Habitual intoxication
  • Habitual drug addiction
  • Willful and continued desertion
  • Incurable mental illness
  • Cruel treatment, including willful infliction of pain, which reasonably justifies concerns of danger to life, limb or health
  • Criminal conviction requiring incarceration of two years or longer
  • Pregnancy of the wife by a man other than the husband, at the time of the marriage, unknown to the husband
  • Marriage entered into based on force, duress, and fraud

Uncontested Divorce

Georgia allows what is sometimes referred to as “no-fault” divorce, meaning that citing the marriage as “irretrievably broken” is sufficient grounds for divorce. Filing for uncontested divorce and negotiating the divorce settlement can be relatively easy; however, with children and finances involved it usually becomes a bit of a fight.

Ideally, the spouses can reach mutually agreeable terms with minimal lawyer involvement. If direct communication is a problem, we can intercede and communicate with the opposing attorney to attempt a resolution.

In the worst case, our experienced trial attorney can represent you in a jury trial to settle your divorce. Regardless of what method is required, we will fight to get you what you deserve.

In working through a typical uncontested divorce, and to draft your divorce settlement, we will need to address property division, savings distribution, and possibly child support, visitation, or custody. Temporary orders are a first priority in most divorce cases. Our divorce lawyer can provide near-immediate help for Temporary Protective Orders (TPO), or Restraining Orders. If you are dealing with, or fearful of, domestic violence we can suggest shelters or alternative housing.

Post-Divorce Services

It is very likely that conditions in your life will change, for better or for worse, and that these conditions will cause you or your ex-spouse to file for modifications to your settlement. We have represented both clients who want modifications, and clients who chose to fight the petitioned modifications.

No matter which side you are on, we can help you with matters regarding:

  • Modification of child custody
  • Modification of child support
  • Spousal support
  • Contempt charges
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)

Do You Need A Divorce?

We cannot answer that question; however, we can say that if you are motivated to seek a divorce law firm you probably do need a divorce. After a traumatic event such as an affair, or after kidding yourself for years that things will get better, you reach a point where “you just know.” When you reach this point, we are here to help you make a sound decision for your situation.

Don’t fear. Life after a divorce can be much better. When you take that first serious step toward filing for divorce, it is natural to have self-doubts, have fears about your future, and even have concerns about your safety or the welfare of your children. Although a divorce can be emotionally exhausting, most people find that their lives are soon better, their nerves are settled, and life goes on.

We encourage you to take advantage of our complimentary consultation with a Cumming divorce attorney to learn more about filing for divorce, what the process entails and how divorce may be right for you.

Whether “you know,” or “you are leaning that way,” call us today at (678) 257-4507 to get the input of an experienced divorce lawyer.
