Summary

Welcome to Edwards Family Law. 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 am licensed in both Georgia and Arizona. I travel frequently between these two states that I love. I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You won't have to worry about me not being able to handle your case 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.

256 Questions Answered

Q. Is there anyway to take my daughters father off child support?
A: If you are receiving Medicaid, you cannot terminate and order for child support. You probably could if you married your child's father.
Q. Can my wife's lawyer read affidavits that my lawyer submitted to him (wife's lawyer) to my 12yr old?
A: Yes, she is probably trying to get him to sign a paper that he wants to live with her.
Q. What do I have to do to sue my child's bio father even though I am married. I married my husband 3 months pregnant.
A: Your husband is the child's legal father. You would have to terminate his rights in order to get child support from the biological father.
Q. Can I file for child support and a custody/visitation order if the NCP receives mail at my address?
A: Yes, you can file for child support.
Q. I am the noncustodial parent of two however, they have been living with me for 5 months. What recourse do I have?
A: You need to file a modification of custody and child support. Otherwise, your support to her is going to continue to accrue.
Q. Can i file CS in Ga. on my son father even though my child has my husband last name but my husband is not my son father
A: No. If the baby was born during the marriage, the child legally is your husband's.
Q. My son father filed legitimation against me in a county i no longer live in. And he doesn't live in that county as well.
A: You need to file an Objection to Venue. You simply have to use the case number and parties names at the top, then state that at the time of filing you lived in Emanueal county. As a practical matter, though, if you no longer live there, would you want to keep driving back there for court?
Q. What rights does a 16 year old have to his infant child. Visitation rights.
A: If the parties aren't married he has no rights at all. He has to petition the court for rights.
Q. Mother and Father are still legally married with a child. Can the father get him anytime he wants to see him?
A: The parties have equal rights, but just grabbing the child and taking off will lead to unnecessary tension and drama. The Husband needs to file for divorce and get a custody order.
