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
420 Questions Answered

Q. CAN THE MOTHER PUT CS ON THE FATHER BUT HAS WARRANTS OUT FOR CS ON HERSELF DUE TO NON PAYMENT FOR 4 OTHER CHILDREN?
A: As long as the child is living with the mother, she can ask for child support. If the father wants custody, then he should file immediately, but at the same time pay the mother for any months the child is not in his care.
Q. If someone else signs the child birth certificate but later it's determined he's not the child's father, can the biologi
A: Yes, a child support case can be filed against the biological father.
Q. I can't afford a lawyer what should I do
A: Ask about going to mediation to resolve the case without a trial. At the very least, you should meet with an attorney for advice on a parenting plan going forward.
Q. Is paying Child Support A Infringement of My Constitutional Rites?
A: No
Q. Can my husband's ex wife prevent my husband from adding me to the pick up roster for the children at their daycare?
A: She does not have to add you to the pick up list. This should have been addressed in the custody paperwork. If it wasn't he can file a modification and ask to have you added. Otherwise, there isn't a way to force the issue.
Q. Can anyone direct me to a form that addresses both a petition for contempt and a change in custody together?
A: There isn't going to be a form for both issues. It's possible that jurisdiction for the contempt can be in one county, and modification in another. Also, depending on the county, it is better to file them separately, as you can get a court date for a contempt hearing much quicker than you can for a modification, which can take up to 6 months. You should consult an attorney so he or she can give you the best advice based upon your situation and the county that you may have to file in.
Q. I will be the father of a child born out of wedlock. The mother is married. I have very little money for legal fees.
A: You can file for legitimation in the county where the child is born. You can do it without an attorney, but it is going to be difficult. There are forms online you can use. These are the Fulton forms. If she lives in another county, you can just cross out Fulton and put the correct county. Otherwise, the forms are the same. https://www.fultoncourt.org/family/family-packets.php#legitimation
Q. If your divorce papers have been filed and you and your spouse are in a bona fide state of separation, is it ok to date?
A: Yes, you can date, but you should be discreet. The children should not meet any potential partners at this time. No one is going to win or lose custody based on whether they are dating after a divorce is filed.
Q. Proving no bona fide separation
A: Without getting too specific, there are ways to prove that you and he have reconciled. I'm sure you know what those might be. Your testimony is enough, but it might be helpful to have other evidence, like texts, or emails. Pictures may be a bit much. You can file a motion to dismiss the divorce. You should probably contact an attorney to help you with this.
