Summary

COVID-19 Notice - Our firm has been working remotely for years. We have not missed a beat. We are still processing family law cases, having hearings via video conference, and settling and finalizing cases every day.

We are happy to help you. My firm is noted for our aggressive representation, meticulous preparation 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 almost 20 years, so I am considered an expert in my field and well regarded by opposing attorneys and judges.

Please note: I DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved.

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.

Q. So my ex husband and I get to switch years to claim our daughter on taxes he has odd years and I have even years.
A: Your question is unclear about him "keeping it all." If you agreed that he could claim the child in odd years, he keeps the refund for that year. --Regina Edwards | www.EdwardsFamilyLaw.com | 770.854.0777 Fair, Flat Fees Only - No Hourly Billing
Q. My ex husband is past due over $5000. What can I do to get it. This is a court ordered.
A: You may file a contempt case to recover the arrears owed. A private attorney usually can move quicker that child support enforcment.
Q. Hello my child support will be up for review this June of 2021. How soon can I go to the child support office to have it
A: You don't have to wait two years. That is just the time frame given by child support services before they will do it. As long as there has been a substantial change in any of the factors regarding child support, you may ask for a modification immediately. --Regina Edwards | www.EdwardsFamilyLaw.com | 770.854.0777 Fair, Flat Fees Only - No Hourly Billing
