Divorce: Getting a divorce in Georgia or Alabama is absolutely messy. In Georgia and Alabama, one party to a marriage may divorce the other party at any time and for no reason at all. Most divorces are contested. Regardless, you will need a lawyer like Mark Jones who can help you get through this difficult time in your life as quickly and painlessly as possible.
*Equitable Division (Property Division)*: Particularly for military clients, certain assets are of concern: the client’s military retirement, e.g., a home bought only due to the serviceman’s veteran’s affairs loan. Mark Jones will make sure that your fair share of all assets are protected.
Alimony: Spousal support, or alimony, is monetary compensation from one person in a marriage to the other when the couple separates or divorces. The purpose of alimony is to avoid any unfair economic consequences of a divorce – even after property is divided. Alimony is particularly helpful when one spouse has been a homemaker for many years while the other spouse works. Oftentimes, when push comes to shove, the working spouse will freeze or remove assets in an effort to starve off the other spouse. Or, the non-working spouse may seek to siphon off funds in anticipation of a divorce. If you are the spouse on the receiving end of such behavior, do not hesitate to call Lawyer Mark Jones.
*An award of attorney’s fees and a court order enjoining a spouse from squandering assets is possible.
Child custody and visitation: If you have children, the most important issue in your divorce will be making the best choices for them. In fact, Georgia and Alabama courts base their decisions on what is in the best interest of the children. Mark Jones knows exactly how a judge or guardian ad litem examines a case to make a custody determination. Call him today to give your kids a fighting chance.
