Summary

Welcome to Edwards Family Law. We are happy to help you. I have been practicing family law since 2001. Our firm is noted for our aggressive representation and our 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.

Please note: We DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved nor do we handle 3rd party or grandparent custody cases. We 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. You hire my firm, you get me as your attorney.

Some recent case results:
KB v. BJ – Fulton County
Father was a prominent 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.

Q. Do I have to have a lawyer to terminate child support when my child turns 18? She dropped out of school. I am the NCP.
A: You need to bring your order to an attorney to discuss. If your child is 18 and no longer in school, generally child support is not still owed, but that depends on what the child support paperwork says.
Q. Can Child S. Agency make a father continue paying Child Support past age 18 even if child is still in High School.
A: Yes. if the child is still in high school, support stops at age 20.
Q. How can I find out how much alimony will be paid before I file.
A: You can't. Talk to an attorney about your case to get advice about how much you could receive (if any)
Q. We got married a year ago but the kids were not born well before the marriage. Does my husband have custody rights?
A: Yes, he legitimated the children when he married you. He has equal custody rights to you.
Q. What is the best child visitation schedule?
A: There is no such thing as "best visitation schedule." What may work for one child, may not work for another. The schedule is created individually for each case taking into account the age of the child, proximity between parents, who has been the primary caregiver, special needs of the child, and about 50 other things. Talk to an attorney about your unique situation.
Q. I have custody as a single father from DFCS for over a year can I keep it
A: You need to contact a family law attorney to discuss your situation and possibly file a custody case.
Q. I got legitimized to have rights to see my son at will and the school wouldn't allow me to see him, what type of charges
A: The school doesn't have to allow you to come to the school whenever you want. In fact, in Gwinnett, the enrolling parent can restrict the other parent from having lunch with the child. If you want to change things, you need to file for a modification.
Q. I been married 14 years have Tenn License. It didnt last 72 hours. He went to Jail. The judge told him he better take
A: You need to contact an experienced family law attorney to help you with your case. I'm sorry for all that you have been through. There probably will not be a monetary settlement for the last 14 years, but you can at least end the marriage and move forward.
Q. I live out of state an trying to get custody of my son. The mother is deceased an the court granted the grandmother
A: You should consult with a family law attorney about your options. You don't appear to know if she has guardianship through probate court, or custody through juvenile or Superior court, so an attorney can help you figure that out and to determine your next steps.
