Arguably one of the most controversial decisions to be made during a Georgia divorce is the disposition of the marital home, especially if there are no children.

The Peculiarities Of Georgia Asset Division

By Buckhead Family Law |

Georgia, like most states in the U.S., follows the equitable distribution system of property division during a divorce.

Paternity vs. Legitimation In Georgia

By Buckhead Family Law |

Most of the time, if one files a paternity suit, they are looking to establish that a certain man is the legal father of a child.
