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 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.

Legal Answers
487 Questions Answered

Q. My wife and I are not separated yet, and she is not letting me and my family see my son unsupervised, with no basis.
A: Both of you have equal rights to custody. However, you asserting that right is unlikely to produce results. Even if you took your child from daycare or a neutral location, then the police would be called and there would be unnecessary stress and tension. It's best to hire an attorney. The only way courts get involved in custody issues is if a divorce or separation case is pending. • Regina I. Edwards is the Owner of Edwards Family Law.

Q. Does my ex have to include her child support of $600 for another child when applying for child support against me in GA
A: No, she does not.
Q. Im a father paying child support and loves his child. The mother moved out of state, is there any regulation against it?
A: If you are not married in Georgia, the mother retains all rights to custody and visitation. That includes her right to move without notice. Father who wish to have rights must file for legitimation and custody. That helps to prevent move aways without notice.
Q. Can a man be obligated to pay child support if he is not married to the mother & the child does not carry his last name?
A: Yes.
Q. My husband is on child support for a child who has never been legitimized, is he obligated to pay for health insurance?
A: Yes, he can be made to pay insurance irrespective of legitimation. Paternity and child support are separate from legitimation and visitation issues.
Q. Can i start a divorce in a different state of where the marriage took place?
A: The place where you married isn't relevant to where you can file for divorce. In Georgia, you have to be a resident for at least 6 months before filing for divorce. You will have to wait 4 more months and then you can file for divorce. You can file for a separation, however. Regina I. Edwards is the Owner of Edwards Family Law.

Q. NCP owes over 28,000 in arrears. CSS has a warrant issued , but when arrested he still doesn't pay and is freed anyway.
