Bonnie was patient and extremely knowledgeable helping me with all aspects of my divorce, mediation, This was my first experience working with a lawyer. Bonnie was patient and extremely knowledgeable helping me with all aspects of my divorce, mediation, and custody options every step of the way. She is very ethical and prompt in her correspondence, and she helped me through any difficult situations that arose during my case. I really appreciated Bonnie’s honest and forthcoming approach. She balanced empathy and business so delicately. She informed me without sugar coating things to what I wanted to hear, but instead, what would be best for me to win my case. Bonnie is a powerful attorney and did not let opposing counsel walk all over me. I felt supported, encouraged and we won everything I wanted! I am so very happy with the service Bonnie and her team provided I would HIGHLY recommend her and her firm. Thank you again Bonnie.

Q. Living in Georgia prior to 11-1-2023, I moved to Las Vegas with my now 19 month old daughter, my mother and step-father.
A: If Georgia has jurisdiction of the child, and you have a previous custody decree, leaving the state without either the parent's consent or a court order giving you permission to relocate is not a good idea and can possibly have negative repercussion for you . It is best to file a motion with the court stating your reasons for the relocation request.
Q. If i move out of state while pregnant to deliver in another state is this seen as frustrating the relationship w/ father
A: legally speaking, you are able to move out state while pregnant. During pregnancy Nevada does not have custody over the child. Custody jurisdiction will be established where the child is born.
Q. in the process of family court. Im being served by mail court docs that have not been stamped from the court. Legal?
A: Initial documents such as a Complaint must be filed before being served on the opposing party.
