Experienced Toombs County Attorney Handles All Aspects of Divorce

Dedicated Georgia counselor represents your rights when your marriage ends

Going through a divorce in Georgia can present legal hurdles and financial conflicts even when spouses are on the same page about ending a marriage. From the Law Office of Tina E. Maddox, LLC in Vidalia, I provide dedicated legal support, advice and advocacy through every step of divorce, from the initial filing until final court orders are granted. My firm diligently pursues favorable arrangements for property distribution, spousal support and more. I have represented residents of Toombs County and the surrounding areas since 2005.

Skilled Vidalia lawyer advises on division of shared financial assets and debts

Georgia courts divide marital assets and debts equitably during a divorce. Each spouse’s income and financial security and contributions to the marriage can influence a decision. To avoid letting a judge use his or her own discretion to decide who gets what, divorcing spouses can forge agreements outside of court. I negotiate terms for:

  • Distribution of property — Splitting up a home and its valuables is an emotionally draining process. A skilled attorney can look for property division solutions that prioritize your immediate and long-term needs. I work for the fair distribution of all eligible property, including bank account, stocks and other assets.
  • Division of marital debts — Individual debt and loans taken out during a marriage become a shared marital responsibility. However, if one spouse accrued excessive debt for personal expenses, I can argue that he or she should bear sole responsibility for the expenses.
  • Temporary alimony — Georgia courts most often award spousal support on a temporary basis, for a set period of time. One spouse may be obligated to financially support the other during and after the divorce. If adultery or other wrongdoing caused the divorce, a judge can decide that the spouse responsible for the split is not entitled to alimony.
  • Permanent alimony — This type of spousal support is usually reserved for cases where one spouse has especially poor employment prospects, poor health or advanced age. A permanent alimony decision can be modified if circumstances change. If the receiving spouse remarries, for example, a judge may end the alimony order.
  • Child support — A custodial parent can request financial help from the noncustodial parent to cover the expenses of providing for their child. Before a court makes a child support order, paternity must be established. A noncustodial parent who fails to make court-ordered payments may face serious penalties.

If you and your ex are able to agree on how your property and debts should be divided, and on how custody and visitation should be handled, I can guide you through an uncontested divorce.
