Parent's custody rights impacted by social media activities

Parents often find that agreeing on or determining child custody is the most stressful part of a divorce.

Texting While Driving? Gwinnett County Drivers Beware.

Text messaging is fast eclipsing phone calls as the preferred method for efficient communication for both personal and business matters. Our smartphones are never far from our hands, buzzing at all times to signal someone has something important to tell us right away.

We never allow our clients to waive their trial rights unless we have worked out a good plea deal for them. Unfortunately, this client had appeared in court before retaining us and unknowingly waived all his rights by signing a simple form.

Experts can assist with property division determinations

The distribution of property in a divorce, although not as emotionally taxing as determinations involving children, is still an important part of the process. Property division can be difficult at times, due to differing valuations of property and hidden assets. Therefore, all parties can benefit from the use of a property expert if necessary under the circumstances.
