I have worked with attorney Regina Edwards for many years. She is always very professional but friendly. She is knowledgable in her field. I have also referred cases to her when I know the client needs a zealous advocate who will not only listen to them but also provide them with advice they may not want to hear but need to hear.

Summary

Welcome to Elovitz, Edwards, O'Nan and Buerlein - Family Law Attorneys. We are happy to help you. I have been practicing family law since 2001. Our firm is noted for our aggressive representation and I charge fair, flat fees. Potential clients can be assured that I have the necessary experience and dedication to family law, and will give each and every client the personal attention that their case requires. I have been practicing for 18 years, so I am considered an expert in my field and well regarded by opposing attorneys and judges.
My partners and I have a combined 66 years of experience.

Please note: I DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved nor do we handle 3rd party or grandparent custody cases. I also only handle cases in the immediate Atlanta Metro area.

I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You will not have to worry about me not being able to handle your important hearing because I have another scheduled at the same time. I set aside time for each client and each case so you get my undivided attention. I will never hand your case off to an associate.

Some recent case results:
KB v. BJ – Fulton County
Father was a doctor who was ordered to pay his daughter’s private school tuition. He happily did so, and paid the mother $3500 in child support. He was shocked to learn the Mother had enrolled the child in boarding school 11 miles away from her home. This increased the tuition significantly, and Mother expected to continue to get her $3500 per month in child support for a child she had shipped off to boarding school. The Mother spent $20,000 in attorney’s fees (our client paid significantly less under the flat fee system) and the Father got a 40% reduction in child support – the exact number we asked for at trial.

KD v. KA – Gwinnett County
We represented a Father of 5 children, only 1 of which was biologically his. After a trial, he was awarded full custody of all the children.

A: You can't.
Q. Is it legal for the mother of our child to receive child support if she is living with me and our child
A: The child support order will remain in place unless and until you change it. You need to speak with an attorney about modifying the order.
Q. We live in GA., and our grandchildren live in TN. Our son passed 10 years ago and their step father has adopted them.
A: You have no rights.
Q. Our son passed away 10 years ago. He had 2 children; their step-father has adopted them. Do we have visitation rights?
A: You don't have any rights.
Q. My nephew is currently 17 and lives with his dad. If he moves in with me, can his daddy force him to come back home?
A: You cannot interfere with a minor's custody. You must wait until he is 18.
Q. What step i need to take to get my daughter back? Father refuse to communicate with me and i would liked joint custody?
A: You need to see an attorney about your options. If there is a court order, that would change things drastically.
Q. Divorce decree says kids can talk to the other parent through age appropriate devices. Is this appropriate for 4 yr old
A: Yes.
Q. What can one do if their lawyer never reviewed or let you review a spouse's interrogatories?
A: The issue is not whether the party saw the responses, but that the other party lied. If you can show that a party was untruthful in a meaningful way, you can seek to set aside a mediation agreement and seek sanctions from the court.
Q. If it is a motion to set aside a mediated agreement... What happens if it is set aside? What's next?
A: There isn't a simple answer to that question. A variety of things can happen after a Motion to Set Aside. Sometimes, the parties settle with or without mediation, sometimes they just to trial.
