Claiming Child Support

This applies regardless of whether parents are married, divorced, or had children their children out of wedlock. It is important for child support to properly accommodate your child's needs—whether you are preparing for divorce negotiations or are planning to enforce a court order on the child's father, our Marietta divorce lawyer may help you complete the legal procedures with efficiency and help you ensure your interests are fairly represented.

Child Custody and Visitation
Georgia law expressly states that neither the mother nor the father may receive preferential treatment in disputes over child custody. It is in your best interests to ensure a fair custody or visitation arrangement in your divorce. In the event that children were born out of wedlock, mothers automatically have full custody—the father must take action with legitimation to have any rights to custody or visitation. Whatever issues you may be encountering with custody or visitation, ensure your rights are protected throughout the legal procedures. Our divorce attorneys in Marietta have decades of experience handling complex family law issues of all kinds.
Seeking legal counsel in mediation?
Mediation is a popular method of divorce that allows spouses to engage in divorce negotiations outside of court while still allowing them to retain an attorney. This is a viable option for spouses who are not contesting most matters of a marriage, or are seeking an alternative to court divorce. Mediation can save time, money, and unnecessary trouble—but it does not automatically protect you from an unfair divorce settlement. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, our team is prepared to help mothers protect their rights in legal procedures of all kinds.
