You may have survived the pandemic, but your marriage didn’t.

Perhaps you stayed together for your children, and now that we are on the other side of this disaster, you need to make some tough decisions.

You are not alone. At Edwards Family Law, we know how to manage your case with a matter-of-fact yet discreet approach. Our law firm has your best interests in mind in all that we do.

Maybe you aren’t going through a divorce but a personal injury accident. Instead of emotional turmoil, you are burdened with excruciating pain and never-ending medical bills.

After an accident, all you want to do is focus on recovery, but the insurance company makes it impossible. They keep pestering you, asking for a statement.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does the family law process usually take?

    The duration of a family law case can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the issues involved, the level of cooperation between parties, and whether the case goes to trial. While some cases can be resolved through negotiation or mediation relatively quickly, others may require more time, especially if they involve contested matters. Our attorneys will work diligently to streamline the process and reach a resolution efficiently, keeping you informed about the progress along the way.

    How is property divided in a divorce in Georgia?

    Georgia follows the principle of equitable distribution when dividing marital property in a divorce. This means that the court aims to divide marital assets and debts fairly but not necessarily equally. Factors considered include each spouse’s financial contributions, the length of the marriage, each party’s earning capacity, and the overall circumstances of the case. Marital property typically includes assets acquired during the marriage, while separate property generally remains with the original owner.

    Can child custody arrangements be modified after they are initially established?

    Yes, child custody arrangements can be modified if there has been a substantial change in circumstances that affects the child’s best interests. Examples of such changes may include:

    • A parent’s relocation
    • A significant change in the child’s needs
    • A parent’s failure to comply with the existing custody order

    However, the court must approve any modifications, and it is advisable to work with an attorney to navigate the legal process successfully.

    What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Georgia?

    In Georgia, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is typically two years. This means that individuals who have suffered personal injuries due to someone else’s negligence must file their lawsuit within two years from the date of the injury. Failing to do so may result in the loss of the right to seek compensation for their injuries. It’s essential to consult with an attorney to understand the specific details and exceptions that may apply to your case.

    What types of compensation can I seek in a personal injury claim?

    In a personal injury claim, you can seek various types of compensation, including:

    1. Medical Expenses: Coverage for past and future medical bills related to your injury.
    2. Lost Wages: Compensation for income you’ve lost due to the injury.
    3. Pain and Suffering: Damages for physical and emotional distress caused by the injury.
    4. Property Damage: Reimbursement for damage to your property in accidents like car crashes.
    5. Punitive Damages: In cases of extreme negligence or intent, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party.

    Consult with an attorney to determine the specific compensation applicable to your case.
