Peachtree City and Newnan Family Law Attorney Addresses Your Concerns
Experienced counsel for a range of legal issues impacting Georgia families
At the outset of a relationship, no one plans to go to court for a divorce or custody dispute, but life takes unexpected turns and circumstances sometimes require strong representation from an experienced family lawyer. What matters most in this moment is that you get the best legal advice and advocacy possible, so that you can maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome. When you come to Thomas F. Tierney, Attorney at Law, you get the benefit of an attorney with more than 30 years of litigation experience. You also get my commitment to do my utmost to resolve your family law concern in a timely, cost-effective manner. From offices in Peachtree City and Newnan, I provide personalized counsel from start to finish, so you can be confident that you have a determined advocate addressing all your vital concerns.
Guiding you through the Georgia divorce process
If you’ve decided to dissolve your marriage, you’re bound to have any number of questions. What’s the best way to get divorced? How long does it take? How much is it going to cost? What about my kids and my property? The answers vary depending on your circumstances, which is why I take the time to meet with you and answer all your questions myself. Under Georgia law, spouses seeking a divorce must already be separated in a legal sense before either can file a petition to dissolve their marriage. You have the option of seeking a “no fault” divorce or alleging marital misconduct on your spouse’s part. My firm explains the applicable laws and provides comprehensive counsel in both contested and uncontested divorce. Together, we can develop an appropriate strategy to secure favorable terms relating to alimony, child custody, child support and the division of your marital property.
Establishing child custody and visitation arrangements
Parents are often at odds over regarding living arrangements and how much time the kids should spend with each parent. Whether you are going through a divorce, are divorced, or were never married to your child’s other parent, I can help you assert your right to maintain frequent, meaningful contact with your son or daughter.
Resolving child support disputes in Georgia
Children in Georgia are entitled to monetary support from both of their parents. But how much that support should be is often a matter of contention. Whether you expect to receive support payments or are obligated to pay, I can help you pursue a fair order that reflects the reality of your financial situation and your children’s needs.
Addressing alimony issues
Spousal support is often an issue, especially when one party has sacrificed their earning potential to further the other’s career or to be the primary caretaker of their children. I help my clients obtain reasonable alimony order through negotiation or by making effective arguments in court based on a range of factors outlined in Georgia law.
Modifying existing family law orders
While I aim to find lasting solutions to family law controversies, life seldom consists of a straight path forward. When it becomes necessary to revisit court orders for child custody, child support or alimony, I work diligently to protect my client’s interests. My firm represents clients seeking to modify orders, as well as those who oppose requested changes.
