Men and Fathers seeking divorce in Georgia have several important issues they must deal with when facing divorce.

 Men and Fathers Georgia Divorce IssuesTwo-thirds of the time the wife files for divorce first.  And frequently men are confronted with a divorce with little or no warning from their wife. And statistically speaking, the wife files for divorce first in the majority of cases; specifically in about two-thirds of all divorce cases filed.  The percentage is even greater with couples who have children.  The result is that many men are facing divorce with no representation and no warning.  This is not a time to “try it alone” or use less than the best representation you can afford.   For example, when served with a divorce, you have thirty (30) days to respond by filing an answer with the Court.  There are exceptions to this rule, but it is imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights.

It is not uncommon for some unethical attorneys to persuade a husband into signing a “acknowledgement of service” without ever actually giving the husband a copy of the “complaint for divorce” or letting the husband know when or if the case is filed and what the case number is.  For whatever reason, this situation seems to happen to men more.  But with up to 70% of divorces being initiated by women, statistically this is more likely to happen to man.  Again, this can cause you to miss valuable time responding to a “complaint for divorce” or worse yet – missing the deadline to file an answer at all.

Also, the first thing a wife typically does when filing for divorce is to ask the Court for a temporary hearing to determine alimony, child support, child custody and other related issues on a temporary basis.  This is not a Court Hearing you should go to without an attorney.  More importantly, do not make the mistake of not attending at all.  It is our opinion at Coleman Legal Group, LLC that good representation at a temporary hearing can help set the course for the entire case.  Likewise, a bad showing at a temporary hearing can significantly set back a case.

The most common issues that come up for men in a divorce case are:
Equitable Division of Assets  |  Equitable Division of Debts  |  Alimony  |  Child Custody  |  Child Support |  Temporary Hearings

If you are facing a divorce, our Georgia Divorce and Family Law Attorneys can effectively represent you no matter how complex the situation.  When your children, assets, home, retirement and business are on the line, do not dabble with amateurs.  You deserve great representation.  Give us a call at 770-609-1247 to schedule a confidential consultation.

If you have already been served with a divorce, you only have thirty (30) days to respond to the divorce before you will be in default. This is a contested divorce. While contested divorces can be settled out of court, they are not to be confused or treated the same as uncontested divorces. If this is your situation, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights.
