Divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage through judicial approval of a settlement agreement or through final trial. Divorce permits parties to live wholly separately and to remarry.
Child Custody and Parenting Time Modification
Child Support Modification
When a child is born out of wedlock, a father must be judicially determined to be his or her biological parent before he can be ordered to pay child support. This determination takes place in the form of a paternity action.
In Georgia, the gateway to custodial rights for fathers of children born out of wedlock comes in the form of a legitimation action. The primary purpose of a legitimation action, however, is to permit your child born out of wedlock to inherit from you through Georgia’s intestacy laws, should you die without a will.
Guardian Ad Litem
Both founding partners at Hoelting & McCormack, LLC are trained Guardian ad Litems. Guardian ad Litems are individuals who are appointed by a court to represent a child’s best interests in a contested custody action.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are contracts through which parties attempt to resolve what will happen, financially, in the context of any divorce. Prenuptial contracts are executed before the marriage takes place, and postnuptial agreements are executed after the marriage takes place.
Mediation is the process through which parties attempt to resolve their family law dispute amicably and outside of the courtroom with the help of a third party intermediary known as a mediator. The mediator cannot give legal advice and cannot render a ruling, but he or she facilitates communication and compromise between both sides. Founding partner Rebecca Hoelting is a trained and experienced mediator.
