FAMILY LAW IS OUR FOCUS

At Bivek Brubaker & Prescott, our Marietta family law attorneys work with clients across the Atlanta metro area in all family legal matters, including:

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: If you get divorced, you’ll need this type of contract to protect your assets. Our family law attorneys are skilled in crafting airtight, enforceable documents that are fair and reflect your wishes.

Divorce: Most divorces deal with complicated financial decisions about retirement accounts, investments, and property. Contested, uncontested, or high-net-worth cases, we assist our clients on every type of divorce scenario.

Collaborative Law: If you’re going through a divorce, there is an alternative approach to traditional litigation (as long as both spouses agree to pursue this route). Collaborative law is a team approach that uses neutral professionals to determine fair financial and parenting plans. The team will include a financial specialist, a child specialist, and a mental health professional. Expect your costs to be lower, and most collaborative law approaches are smoother from an emotional standpoint compared to a typical litigation divorce.

Military Divorce: We honor the special individuals who protect our country, and we understand the complexities when divorce involves members of the military. These circumstances are often different from non-military divorces, particularly around the division of military benefits and child custody.

Divorce for Baby Boomers: Baby boomers going through a divorce, often called “gray divorce,” must navigate complex issues, including retirement, how to tell their adult children, health concerns, and more. It takes an experienced family law attorney to help baby boomers successfully transition through these issues and resolve difficult decisions, such as dividing property, pensions/retirement benefits, and more.

Same-Sex Couples: With the broad legalization of same-sex marriage across the United States, gay and lesbian couples need supportive and knowledgeable family law attorneys. We can assist you with adoption, divorce, child custody, as well as any potential issues you may encounter with more conservative-leaning judges and courts.

Contempt: We are here to help you if your former spouse isn’t meeting the terms of your divorce agreement or other Court Order. For example, they may not be dividing property appropriately or skipping their child support payments. We can help you file a contempt action and go after attorney’s fees (when warranted), although we can also try to resolve the situation with less confrontational methods first.

Domestic Violence: If you or your children need protection from domestic violence situations, our Marietta family law attorneys are here to help. We have experience helping victims pursue temporary protective orders (TPOs) during divorce and child custody disputes.

Adoption: Adoption is a complicated journey that requires extensive documents. Our family law attorneys have worked on extremely complex adoptions. We’ve even had our adoption cases upheld with the Court of Appeals. Whether your situation involves protecting children in a contested adoption or expanding your family through grandparent adoption, step-parent adoption, non-relative adoption, or same-sex-couple adoption, we can help. We understand the complex process and requirements to make sure your adoption is finalized in a timely manner so that you can focus on bonding with your new family member(s).

Child Support: We will work diligently to protect your rights whether you’re making child support payments or seeking child support from your spouse. We will help you navigate these complex issues that include parental income; exceptions around shared custody plans and long-distance travel; and expenses for childcare, extracurricular activities, and medical/health issues.

Custody and Guardian Ad Litems: A guardian ad litem (GAL) serves as a neutral, unbiased advocate for your child, always keeping their best interests in mind, including during the resolution of custody issues. A GAL may be able to assist you with your situation. Because we are trained GALs, we can speak knowledgably about how to make a good impression, how to prepare for interviews and home visits, and more.

Modification Actions: Sometimes it’s necessary to pursue changes to child custody and child support agreements. When these significant life changes happen, we can help you request these modifications.

International Child Custody: If a parent wants to relocate internationally with his or her children, it’s a complex situation with many specialized laws. An experienced family law attorney can help guide you during this complicated process. You may need to modify an existing custody arrangement or create a parenting plan that takes into account the new international aspect. In child abduction situations, we can also help you work through the laws set forth by the Hague Convention, which govern many countries.

Legitimation and Paternity: If you’re a mother pursuing child support or a father requesting child custody, we can help. We understand the complicated process of paternity determinations (filed by the mother) and legitimation petitions (filed by fathers).
