Canton Attorneys For High-Stakes Or High-Asset Divorce

Our clientele includes high net worth clients — high earners as well as disadvantaged spouses — and people of moderate wealth who need sophisticated solutions. Our lawyers draw on decades of collective wisdom to analyze your estate and develop your strategy. We will walk you through the Georgia divorce process, including grounds for divorce, discovery, equitable distribution and separate property versus marital property.

We help engineer a fair and practical property division of your marital estate, accounting for complex assets or complicating factors such as:

  • Ownership interest in a business
  • 401(k) and other retirement accounts
  • Stock options and deferred compensation
  • The marital residence
  • Second homes, condos or investment property
  • Airplanes, boats and luxury items
  • Military pensions
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Awarding of attorney fees
  • Child custody and child support
  • Temporary spousal support and post-divorce alimony

Cherokee County Alimony Attorneys

Alimony, also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance, is meant to equalize the standard of living of divorcing spouses. It is typically awarded in longer marriages, especially when there is great income disparity, when one spouse has sacrificed a career or when a spouse cannot become self-supporting because of age, disability or education level.

Although judges have considerable leeway, our lawyers can determine if alimony is likely to be awarded in your case. We can then negotiate or litigate accordingly.

Our philosophy is to keep our clients out of court, but we will faithfully and forcefully defend their interests when contested divorce proceedings are necessary.
