Georgia Family Law Versus Other States’ Laws

When you experience a need for family law help it’s important to consult with a lawyer who is an expert on your state’s law. Tom Rowsey is an expert in family law in Georgia. Georgia’s laws are unique to the state, just as each state has their own laws that mandate their ways of dealing with legal issues. For this reason, it’s important to use a lawyer who is an expert in the law of the state that you reside.

Marriage and divorce are governed (and a court’s decisions are constrained) by state law. The grounds on which a divorce may be granted vary from state to state as well. For example, filing a divorce based on “irreconcilable differences” is not available in the state of Virginia. Filing for a divorce on the basis of “irreconcilable differences” in Georgia is an option.

Clients may also think that they will automatically get half of everything in a divorce due to something called “community property”. However, the law in Maryland does not require an automatic 50/50 division of assets in a divorce. In Georgia, marital property is divided between divorcing spouses equitably, which does not necessarily mean equally. The allocation may vary depending upon many factors.

For anyone thinking about marriage or divorce, it’s important to take the time to see your attorney, like Tom Rowsey, prior to committing to a course of action. Don’t assume you know Georgia state laws; come see the expert in your state’s law.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
