Sadly in Georgia, like most states, domestic violence is a reality that we deal with in cases here. If someone’s been the victim of domestic violence it can have a huge impact on their divorce case and the ultimate resolution of that case and the custody of the children involved.
In a divorce where there is an emergency, if somebody’s life is at stake, then we can go and get an emergency hearing right at the very beginning of the case and go ahead and get that restraining order and that protection in place from the very first day that we filed that divorce. And, if the other party breaks that restraining order, then that’s a felony in Georgia called aggravated stalking.
When I started the firm over 10 years ago, one of the first things that I did was have my personal cell phone number put on my business card. Every single client of mine has my personal cell phone number, and that’s true for every single attorney that works at our firm. If you hire our firm, you will have the ability to get us on the phone because our personal cell phone number is on that business card that you’ll get on day one.
