Divorces, whether contested or uncontested, are always complicated and require patience and attention to detail. The legal, financial and emotional results from a divorce can impact you for the rest of your life. Having quality legal representation can help you achieve a satisfactory result in what can be one of the most stressful and emotionally draining experiences of your life. Cotton Law Firm offers divorce representation in both uncontested and contested cases.
Uncontested divorces in Georgia are divorces reached by agreement of both parties and can avoid the need for a protracted and exhausting trial. Oftentimes, the divorce will be granted without having to appear in court. However, the need for quality legal representation is just as great in uncontested divorces as it is in contested divorces. Even if uncontested, divorces involving children can be stressful and overwhelming. We will assist you in preparing the numerous documents necessary to address custody, visitation and child support.
Once you retain Cotton Law Firm, you will have an individualized consultation, in which we will discuss in detail your desires and all facets of your divorce before preparing the required documents to obtain your divorce. Our experienced team of divorce attorneys will work with you to ensure that the divorce agreement between you and your spouse meets all the requirements of Georgia law and will assist you in ensuring that all necessary considerations are accounted for in your divorce agreement.
Just because a divorce is contested does not mean that there has to be a long, painful and emotionally draining trial. Contested divorces are those in which parties are not initially in agreement as to the details of their divorce. Our experienced divorce attorneys make use of both settlement negotiations and mediation in an attempt to bring parties to a mutually satisfactory result, all while zealously advocating for our clients.
In many cases, mediation is a successful tool in resolving divorce conflicts and allows parties, represented by counsel, to work together to resolve their differences and in reaching a final divorce settlement.
Our attorneys are not afraid of the courtroom, having decades of experience in representing clients all across the state. If necessary, the divorce attorneys at Cotton Law Firm are prepared to advocate for your behalf in Georgia’s courts.

- Division of 401Ks and Retirement Benefits
