Hoelting & McCormack
Family Law Areas of Practice:


Divorce

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

Because families evolve over time, custody and parenting time arrangements must often be revisited and revised through a custody modification action.

Child Support Modification

Changes in a party’s ability to pay and / or the needs of a child may lead to the need for a child support adjustment through a child support modification action.

Paternity

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.

Legitimation

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.

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

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.
