Family Law, Child Custody, Visitation Child Support, and Legitimation
Family matters are often emotional and intense. Families going through a legal separation, divorce or adoption, who have issues pertaining to child support or visitation, or who need a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may find the emotional intensity of mixing the legal with personal aspects of life to be overwhelming. If your family is facing a legal situation that must be resolved within the legal system, you will need to have a compassionate Atlanta divorce lawyer who will handle the matter with discretion, tact, and dedication to your interests and the interests of your children, if you are a parent.
Your Atlanta family lawyer should have a finely-tuned knowledge of Georgia law, along with an understanding of how families work and the potential consequences of the legal process and its outcome on the individual members of your family. Your divorce attorney in Atlanta, Georgia should seek to balance the emotional, psychological, and financial aspects of the matter facing you family to achieve a solution that works in your unique situation. Above all, the attorney you choose should be someone you trust and whom you feel comfortable speaking to openly.
SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW
Students deserve passionate legal advocates if their full potential is not being realized within a school environment. It can feel overwhelming to challenge the practices and behaviors of any school district, especially where educational laws are so specialized. We encourage all parents to take that first positive step towards vindicating their student’s rights, and contact the Douglas Law Group.
Children have a legal right to a free and appropriate education, in addition to many other state and federal rights. We are passionate about advocating for the needs of students throughout Georgia. Schools shouldn't be permitted to make arbitrary decisions that can harm your child's future. With the help of legal counsel, you can enforce your rights in court, mediation or due process hearings and ensure school districts are held accountable. A student's future is not something to leave to chance.
