Atlanta Family Lawyers

By: Alison Cole

Family law in the United States relates to family issues. It covers a very extensive set of issues ranging from marriage and cohabitation, to divorce and child custody. These days, even a happy occasion like a marriage involves a legal agreement between the parties in order to have a mutually beneficial future. In case of marriage, a premarital agreement has to be entered into, which is more or less a written contract that specifies how the property would be divided between the couple and how the alimony would be planned in case the marriage ends in divorce.

This agreement is based on several laws that protect the interests of the couple. These also include other issues like inheritance and power of attorney to make healthcare decisions. Even in cases of non-marital decisions where a couple decides to live together without getting married, a legal and formal contact may be entered into defining the legal rights of both partners in the relationship.

In any case, it is important to consult a good legal expert, more likely a lawyer who has specialized in the area of family law.

Even divorce cases, the settlement becomes easier if an experienced family lawyer is involved in the mediation process. Since a divorce involves several issues like property, inheritance, child custody, alimony etc, a good family lawyer could make the whole affair less messy and less time consuming.

Family law in Atlanta is determined by rules under the local, state and federal governments. To settle a family dispute smoothly, it is important to consult a good family lawyer who can provide advice as per Atlanta state regulations.
