Georgia Divorce Law is Unique

Georgia family law has certain unique features that may be different than how divorce is portrayed on TV or in books:

Because Georgia is a modified no-fault divorce state, all it takes to dissolve a marriage is for one person to cite irreconcilable differences. In addition, child custody is gender-neutral and decided by the Court only using the the best interest of the child standard. To ensure that your rights and interests are protected, the help of an experienced divorce lawyer is essential. In every divorce and related matter, Mitch’s objective is to put you in the strongest position possible so you can move forward in your life. At Mitchell M. McKinney, PC, we can handle all your family law needs, including:

  • Child Custody
  • Child support
  • Modifications in Child Support/Child Custody/Alimony
  • Equitable distribution of marital property
  • Alimony
  • Protective Orders

Uncontested and contested divorce

Mitchell M. McKinney, P.C. represents clients in all types of marital dissolution matters. When the parties have no children and have already worked out a property division agreement, we can provide a documents-only divorce that can lead to divorce at a lower fee. Mitch also represent clients in contentious divorces involving property division or child custody disputes. Mitch is an aggressive advocate for his clients.

However, most divorce cases lie somewhere in between, where there are agreements on some issues and disagreements on others. Whenever possible, Mitch seeks to negotiate an acceptable and workable solution that protects our client’s rights and interests. This can be done by working with opposing counsel, if possible, or through mediation.
