Experienced Kennesaw Lawyer Offers Solutions for Families

Dedicated Georgia attorney helps clients through difficult times

How you handle a family law challenge can affect you and your loved ones for years to come. An experienced attorney can help you move beyond these complicated and emotionally draining legal matters in a positive manner. The Law Office of Homer P. Jordan IV, LLC has helped clients throughout Cobb, Cherokee and Paulding counties, as well as the surrounding area, achieve the results they want. Our professional services include representation in divorce proceedings, child custody matters and cases relating to the modification and enforcement of child support orders. In each situation, we are dedicated to helping you and your family look toward the future with confidence.

Metro Atlanta firm handles all types of child custody and support issues

During a divorce, parents of minor children have a special responsibility to guide their sons and daughters through a trying time. We provide full legal support to these clients in cases involving:

  • Child custody — Our firm helps divorcing parents create effective parenting plans that serve the child’s best interests and, whenever possible, include ample visitation time with the noncustodial parent. If a problem exists that justifies some limit on a parent’s legal or physical custody rights, we’ll prepare a thorough argument to present to the court.
  • Child support — State law sets child support rates based on parental income, childcare costs and health insurance payments. If you have a concern about the accuracy of information or need help with a modification or enforcement action, we’ll take prompt action on your behalf.
  • Modifications to existing orders — As you and your family transition to a new life following divorce, your circumstances may change. You or your former spouse may experience a significant change in income or make plans to relocate out of state. Our firm will review your case to see if you qualify for modification of your order. We can provide sound advice on how to pursue changes to custody, visitation, child support or alimony terms in a cost-effective manner.

Our firm delivers individualized counsel to clients so that your children have the best chance to grow up with the support and healthy environment that they deserve.

Experienced family law counselor provides assistance with alimony issues

Known as maintenance under Georgia law, alimony is awarded only in limited circumstances, typically as a short-term measure to enable a spouse who has not been working develop skills for gainful employment. The court will consider the following factors in making an alimony award:

  • Length and circumstances of the marriage — Alimony most often is awarded when a long-term marriage ends. The court also will consider the standard of living of the parties during the marriage and the contributions of each spouse to the marriage, including homemaking, childcare and supporting the other spouse’s career.
  • Age and health of each party — In some cases, if a party is unable to work at all due to age or physical or mental infirmity, alimony may be awarded on a long-term or permanent basis.
  • Financial resources of each party — The court will consider the financial condition and earning capacity of each spouse. If applicable, the court also will look at how long it will take a nonworking spouse to acquire sufficient training to enter the workforce.

Whether you’re seeking financial support or are facing a request for payments, our firm will advocate for a fair and just alimony award by presenting all relevant evidence for the court’s consideration.

Knowledgeable attorney drafts appropriate prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

When couples decide to divorce, each party benefits if costly disputes over items such as property division and alimony can be avoided. Entering into a fair prenuptial or postnuptial agreement gives spouses the chance to establish mutually agreeable terms for these issues in case the marriage does not work out. Our firm works closely with clients who are engaged or already married to promote candid, positive communication throughout the process. Once executed, the marital agreement will outline clear terms regarding legal and financial issues.
