Atlanta Family Law Attorney

Family Law Attorney

The Law Firm of Hillman J Toombs and Associates, P.C. has family law attorney’s that can help you.  The Law Firm of Hillman J Toombs and Associates, P.C. defines Family law as "conflict resolution" and is dedicated to helping couples keep the costs of a divorce as low as possible -- and that includes both the financial costs and the emotional costs. We offer a variety of services, including providing the information our clients need to determine whether or not to get divorced at all.

The more a couple can make their own decisions about their divorce, the more they will stay out of court and the more money they will save. We use our experience as Lawyers to make sure our clients' rights are protected and ALL the necessary issues are discussed and resolved, while still allowing both parties to maintain control over their agreement to the highest degree possible. This is NOT the kind of law suit where a "windfall" check is going to arrive at the end. The less parties spend on "fighting," the less they will spend on attorney fees and the more money they will have to divide between themselves.

Whether or not a couple has children, Friendlier is Cheaper. A divorce is a life-impacting experience, and we help our clients see the "light at the end of the tunnel."

We will explain how Georgia judges deal with issues regarding basic needs so that the couple can maintain the "status quo" while the divorce is pending.

If the couple has children, the prime questions are these:

1.    In contested Child Custody cases, where will the child live?
2.    How much will Child Support be?
3.    What kind of visitation of children will there be?

Studies show that it is essential for children to know that they are not responsible for their parents' divorce. Kids learn much about life while watching their parents divorce: how to treat the opposite sex, how to handle anger, how to compromise, how to handle disappointment, how to overcome diversity, how to forgive, how to make the best out of a bad situation. Kids will use their parents as role models and, later in life, whenever they face any problems with their own relationships, they will act just like they saw their mom or dad do.

What if it's Downright Ugly?

Unfortunately, sometimes the circumstances are such that the divorce requires a tough, aggressive legal approach. Even in these cases, a client can be confident that The Law Firm of Hillman J Toombs and Associates, P.C. will use our negotiating and mediation skills to obtain the best result. Sometimes, a court hearing and / or trial is necessary. Whatever it takes, any client of The Law Firm of Hillman J Toombs and Associates, P.C. can rely on our commitment and dedication to work hard to get the best possible outcome. The parties may go to Divorce Mediation prior to trial. In this situation, The Law Firm of Hillman J Toombs and Associates, P.C. represents our client at the mediation, which would also be attended by the spouse and his or her attorney.

Of course, our office also deals with many Georgia family law issues in addition to divorce.
