Frequently Asked Questions

  • WHAT ARE THE GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE IN GEORGIA?

    • ​There are 13 different grounds for divorce in the State of Georgia.  The most frequently listed reason is that the marriage is "irretrievably broken".  This is typically referred to as the "no fault" divorce or more colloquially as "irreconcilable differences".  In Georgia, like all other states, a person can get divorced for any reason or no reason at all.

  • HOW MUCH IS A DIVORCE GOING TO COST?

    • ​There is no way to know exactly how much a divorce will cost.  Many different factors can expand the cost of litigating a divorce.  Only an experienced divorce attorney can handle your divorce in a cost effective manner.  Call The Coxen Firm, LLC to set an appointment or to learn more about our fee structure.

  • ​WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CHILDREN DURING MY DIVORCE?

    • ​Custody in Georgia is always determined by a judge and is ordinarily determined by the "best interests of the child(ren)" standard.  There are many different factors a judge take into account when determining which parent is the best custodian for children in a divorce or other custody case.  There are many ways to help improve your chances of winning your custody case and an experienced divorce attorney is essential when preparing to fight for custody of your child(ren).  Call today to set an appointment with one of the attorneys at The Coxen Firm, LLC to discuss your custodial rights.

  • ​I AM PAYING CHILD SUPPORT, DOES THAT MEAN I GET TO SEE MY CHILDREN?

    • ​Paying child support and visitation with a minor child, are two separate legal issues.  Specifically, that means that payment of child support doesn't necessarily mean you are entitled to visitation with your children, especially if the children were born outside of a marriage.  Fathers of children born outside of wedlock have no legal rights to visit with their children, in some cases even if they have signed the birth certificate.  If you have questions about your legal rights to see your children, call The Coxen Firm, LLC today.
