New Year’s Resolution September

On Behalf of | Sep 8, 2017 | Firm News

If your plan is to kick the New Year off right by addressing that Family Law issue that has been on your mind all year long, now is the time to start.

Court intervention does not happen overnight. It is a process that takes, at a minimum, 3 months.  Whatever the matter may be: divorce; modification of custody; legitimation, etc., there is a process that must be followed.  That process includes filing the petition…perfecting service…gathering information through the discovery process…and having a hearing.

Believe it or not, a few of the Metro-Atlanta Counties have a waiting period for over 4 months before you can even get a court date.  Others require that you mediate before you can even get in front of a Judge.  All of this takes time.

If you want the next year to be the year that you begin living the life you deserve, act now.  That would give you approximately 4 months to hopefully get a final hearing done by the end of the year so you can ring in the New Year right, leaving your Family Law matter behind you.
