Family Law

Divorce

Going through a divorce can be a trying time for any individual. It is also difficult for families. Many areas of your life will be affected after a divorce, including where you live, your income, and how you care for your children.

In order to come out on the other side with all of your needs met, it is important to work with a legal team like ours at C. Kelly Law, LLC. We are on your side and will fight for your rights throughout the duration of your divorce proceedings.

Legitimation

As a father, you have unique rights to custody and visitation of your children. However, if you were not married to the mother of your child at the time of your child’s birth, you’ll need to go through the legitimation process.

For you, your child, and the rest of your family, this can be a difficult process. Often, mothers make it especially hard for fathers, and it’s possible you’ll face difficulties from the entire maternal side of your child’s family.

Still, it’s important to remember that you do have rights as your child’s father, and only the legitimation process can solidify those rights. At C. Kelly Law, LLC, we will help you through every step of the legitimation process and fight for your custody and visitation rights.

Child Support

Child support cases may involve a parent and child who is not receiving the court-ordered support they were granted. Or, they might involve payers of child support being burdened with unfair payment requirements. Furthermore, all states have their own strict child support guidelines. However, these may or may not apply to your unique situation.

Understanding Georgia child support law is crucial to both parties in a child support case. Whether you are the guardian charged with paying child support or the custodial parent, you have unique rights that you should fight for.

At C. Kelly, Law, we’ve had extensive experience successfully handling child support cases for all types of families and unique situations. Often, child support issues coincide with child custody, adoption, and/or divorce issues as well. When this is the situation, rest assured our team is well-equipped to satisfactorily handle your case and fight on your behalf.

Child Custody

Child support issues can be understandably emotional for parents, children, and their families. Parents, grandparents, and other family members who are feuding over custody can tear once-strong relationships apart, and of course, you always want what’s best for your child.

If you are facing a legal issue involving child custody, our team at C. Kelly Law, LLC can help. With our experience and expertise in child custody matters, we’ll help you navigate the difficult process of obtaining rightful custody of your child.

Adoption

Adoption law is different in every state, and no matter the state, many meticulous steps must be taken to carry out the adoption process. At C. Kelly Law, LLC, we are well-versed in Georgia adoption law. Our adoption legal services can help you carry out the process according to state law requirements and in a timely manner, with as little hassle as possible.

This includes ensuring you have the right to legally adopt, procuring the proper consent from the necessary parties, completing the appropriate paperwork on time and in order, and much more. Without help from an attorney and legal team with experience in Georgia adoption law, the process is often emotionally exhaustive and sometimes, even, incompletable.
