Domestic Law

Domestic Law

 

Domestic law covers a wide range of subjects and issues, ranging from divorce, custody, legitimation, and child support issues to adoption, name changes, dependency actions in Juvenile Court (formerly deprivation actions), and guardianship issues. Whether you are looking for child support lawyers, child custody lawyers, or general family law lawyers, the lawyers at Pasley & Nuce, LLC, are here to help when you need it most.

1. Divorce

Going through a divorce involves the most intimate details of your life, ranging from your children, your finances, and your personal relationship. At a time when you may feel most vulnerable or pressured, you need an attorney you trust to handle the aspects of your divorce, ranging from property division, custody and visitation arrangements, child support, alimony, debt division, and every other facet of the divorce process. Pasley & Nuce, LLC, is conveniently located in three different locations and handles cases throughout Georgia to meet your needs. Whether you’re considering going through the divorce process or whether you’ve been served with a divorce action and you do not know where to turn, give us a call and let us help guide you. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we are here to help when you need it most.

2. Legitimation

Fathers often find themselves on the outside looking in when a child is born out-of-wedlock. Unfortunately in Georgia, until a father establishes custody and visitation rights through the court system he has no custody or visitation rights to his child. Even though the father has no custody or visitation rights, he still has an obligation to pay child support. By filing a legitimation action, a father can ensure that he establishes custody and visitation rights and enjoys time to bond with and parent his child. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we want to help you have that relationship with your child. If you have any questions about the legitimation process, or if you are ready to hire an attorney to handle your case, give us a call—at Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we are here to help when you need it most.

3. Adoption

Adoptions offer one of the most joyous occasions in family law, but the process is very technical and can be quite daunting if you are unfamiliar with the process. Pasley & Nuce, LLC, has years of experience in helping families grow through the adoption process, and we can help you as you and your family go through the adoption process. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we are here to help when you need it most.

4. Custody/Visitation Modification

Custody and visitation rights are not set in stone. Every two years you have the opportunity to seek a custody and/or visitation modification. Additionally, within that two year period you have the opportunity to seek a modification sooner if there is a significant and material change in circumstances affecting the welfare of your child. Whether you’re looking to increase your visitation rights or modify custody from one parent to another, Pasley & Nuce, LLC, has the experience to help you reach the result you’re looking to achieve. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we are here to help when you need it most.

5. Name Change

Looking to fix an error on your birth certificate? Maybe you’re ready to try out a new name for a new start on life? Or perhaps you’re ready to take that next step and let your child take on your significant others last name? A Name Change Petition can address these and many other issues when you are looking to change your name or the name of your minor child. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we make this process as easy as possible by drafting the required legal documents, publishing notice of your name change, getting your name change order, and processing your name change with vital records. Name changes can be a technical process, and Pasley & Nuce, LLC, is here to make sure the process is handled correctly. At Pasley & Nuce, LLC, we are here to help when you need it most.
