Child Custody & Child support Children are often the center of a parent’s universe. The idea of sharing time, responsibility, decision-making, etc… with someone else can be a scary thought. Especially when that someone else is someone that you don’t get along with anymore. Whether you share a child with a former spouse or former partner is important to make sure that your child and your rights to that child are protected.

 

Often over time things will change. Relationships change. Jobs change. Children mature and develop a voice of their own. This may mean that a modification may be appropriate.

Armstrong P.C. is here to guide you through the legal process to make sure you and your child(ren) are protected.

 

 

 

WILLS

 

It is important to have a written will that is legally sound. Everyone needs a will. People may think that they do not need a will because they do not have property or money or anything worth giving away or fighting over, but wills serve a larger purpose. A will keeps the State from determining what happens to your estate after you are deceased. A will keeps the State from deciding who takes care of your children and their assets if they are too young to decide for themselves.

 

Wills are extremely important to same sex couples because Georgia does not recognize same sex marriage. If you are a partner in a same sex relationship in Georgia your partner is likely to not inherit anything unless you have a will. To save your loved ones the trouble of guessing what your wishes would be, take the time to obtain a will. Tomorrow is not promised so call or email us today so that we may begin working on your will right away.
