There is no decision more important to a parent other than custody. Custody not only includes where children live but it includes access to children by both parents. A good lawyer who is able to develop and present your case is critical. The Court considers many factors in determining the primary custodian.
Garnett Harrison’s dealing with military and civil service personnel over the years has given her the experience needed to obtain for you your share of military pension and retirement benefits as part of the marital estate regardless of being in active duty or already retired. Military spouses’ rights are recognized pursuant to Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act.
The judge has the authority to grant or deny alimony. Once alimony is granted it can change over time to be increased or decreased depending on many factors. Garnett Harrison will assist you to modify the alimony assignment, for example, upon the death, the remarriage of the spouse receiving the alimony, or cohabitation of an unmarried former spouse. The modification is based on the need of the receiving spouse and the other spouse”s ability to pay. The alimony could be granted on a permanent or temporary basis depending on the length of the marriage. Garnett Harrison can assist you with the procedures to obtain alimony or child support during a period of separation or abandonment without filing for a divorce.
This is a process where a marriage is essentially set aside as if it never existed. The procedure for an annulment is similar to a divorce, except, according to the Official Code of Georgia may not be granted if children have been or are to be born as a result of the marriage.
