Divorce, Custody, & Family Law
During a divorce, custody, or other family law dispute, often, families experience extreme stress and disruption in their lives, causing additional anxiety and fears about their futures. At Lowry Law, we understand how you are feeling and how important your family values are. We will work with you to find a settlement that will put the least amount of stress possible on you and your children, but, if an equitable and fair agreement cannot be reached, we will be by your side every step of the way, advising you and fighting for what is important to you and in the best interests of your children. If litigation is necessary, we have the necessary knowledge, skills, and trial experience needed in any family law dispute.
As a full-service law firm, we have helped many clients in the following types of family law matters:
- Temporary Protective Orders (TPOs)
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Parental Relocations
- Property Division
- Parental Rights
- Grandparents’ Rights
- Wills, Trusts, Probating or Administering Estates, and Estate Planning
- Guardianships and Conservatorships
- Name Change
- Dependency Cases (involving the Department of Family and Children Services or “DFCS”)
Since divorce and family law matters touch on so many other areas of the law, our firm’s general practice focus helps us to bring a more profound understanding of issues such as property division, business organizations, and domestic violence accusations. We are here to serve your family and our goal is to earn your trust to handle any legal problem that comes your way.
Family is important to us at Lowry Law, and we consider ourselves to be a family serving families from one generation to the next generation.
We often hear people say things like “Georgia is a 50/50 state,” when discussing divorce. That’s simply not true. That’s what we call “I heard law.” Georgia is an equitable division state, which does not mean “equal” and which can result in a different outcome depending on the specific facts of your case.
This is why you need an experienced family law attorney to analyze the facts of your case and how they apply to the law to obtain the best possible outcome for you and your children.
A Father’s Rights
We often hear biological fathers utter these words: “But I signed the birth certificate!” Unfortunately, signing your child’s birth certificate does not grant you legal status as the father. In other words, even though you might have signed the birth certificate, that act does not entitle you to custody of or visitation with your child. You can, however, be compelled to pay child support. In order to get custody of or visitation with your child, you must file a Legitimation action. We have ample experience in handling legitimation cases, and we can provide you with sound advice and guide you through the legal process.
