Welcome to our Atlanta Divorce Team
The legal team at Meriwether and Tharp, LLC know that obtaining a divorce can be a difficult process. That is why we decided to focus our entire practice on this one area of law. Not only do you have to navigate the legal complications surrounding equitable division, child support, alimony, and child custody, but you also have to deal with the emotional toll a divorce places on you and your family. Many of you have to manage this legal and emotional burden while continuing to maintain jobs, pay bills, taxi children to their extra-curricular activities, assist with homework, etc. That is why we are here for you. We take care of your divorce. You take care of your life.
There are four main ways we can help you navigate through this emotional point in your life.
Trusted Family Law Advisors . At eleven lawyers, five paralegals and four legal assistants, Meriwether and Tharp, LLC is one of the largest law firms in Georgia dedicated solely to the practice of family law. In order to be Trusted Family Law Advisers, we constantly attend specialized seminars and lectures to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in family law and psychology. Members of our team have even taught other lawyers about various aspects of divorce through Continuing Legal Education. Some of us have published articles for various family law publications as well as newspapers. We consistently post free family law information on our blog, www.atlantadivorceattorneyblog.com. While our attorneys primarily focus on representing clients in divorce actions, members of our team are more than just attorneys. Members of our team are also trained and qualified to serve as mediators, arbitrators, late case evaluators, and Guardian Ad Litems in family law cases.
Team of Legal Professionals. At Meriwether and Tharp, LLC, you will receive the benefit of not only one attorney but a team of legal professions (including attorneys, paralegals, and assistants) who are dedicated to your case. Our team approach allows us to ensure that cases and the issues that come up are handled quickly and effectively. If one attorney is out of the office for a Court appearance or mediation, there is usually another attorney on your team who is familiar with your case that can assist you. While we are one of the largest firms in Georgia dedicated exclusively to family law, we offer the customer service and individual client attention that is customary of a small firm. It is our top priority to ensure that our client’s needs throughout the process are addressed.
Financial Know-How for Fair Asset Division. Having experience dividing a wide variety of marital estates, you can trust the team of legal professionals at Meriwether and Tharp, LLC to help divide your marital estate fairly and equitably. Our attorneys have handled marital estates involving investments in real property, retirement accounts and pensions, vested and unvested stock options, and even marital businesses. We have also handled cases involving negative net worth, high debt to income ratio, and high credit card debt. With our past experience in business law, we have specific expertise in cases requiring the division of small and medium sized businesses. Regardless of your situation, our trusted family law advisors will guide you towards a fair asset division.
Innovative Thinking and Effective Results. While in the Courtroom, we zealously represent our clients. Fierce litigation, however, is often not the best way to resolve a divorce. We use active negotiation to reach out and work toward a resolution whenever appropriate. We have purchased the copyrights to re-print certain American Bar Association divorce booklets to provide to you when you retain us so that you can be better educated and make informed decisions. While cases may share similarities between them, the legal team at Meriwether and Tharp, LLC recognizes that each family, marriage, and divorce is unique and therefore requires a customized approach. You can rely on the experience of eleven different lawyers with diverse backgrounds and experiences, connections to resources within the legal community, and creative thinking. Your team of trusted family law advisors can craft a result that is specific to your and your family’s needs.
