Family Law Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get a divorce?

It depends on the type of divorce. An Uncontested divorce can be resolved in about 45 days. A Contested divorce can take months or even years. However, many divorces that start out as Uncontested become Contested during the process and can take several months to a year or more to finalize. Go Back To Top

How does Alimony work in Georgia?

Alimony which is also known as spousal maintenance or spousal support is financial support paid by one spouse to the other spouse due to a divorce. In most divorce cases, Alimony becomes an issue for both parties. Georgia law allows for Alimony, but there are no specific guidelines for determining Alimony eligibility, Alimony duration and there is no exact formula for calculating the Alimony amount. Since there is no specific Georgia law to determine the Alimony Specifics, this information may be determined by a Judge or a Jury. At Ladin & Associates, we put our experience to work for you to ensure that you and your family are protected while determining Alimony. Go Back To Top

How does Child Support work in Georgia?

The new Georgia Child Support law went into effect on January 1, 2007 which dramatically changed the way that Child Support is determined in the State of Georgia. One of the key changes in this law is that incomes of both the custodial and non-custodial parents are taken into account. To take this into account, Georgia uses a Tool called the Child Support Calculator. While this Calculator sounds easy, it is a very complex and cumbersome tool which can cost you money if it is used incorrectly. Go Back To Top
