One of the most stressful things you can endure is ensuring you get to see your child and get the requisite financial support for children in your care. Family Matters Law Group, your local family law office, understands and empathizes with that better than anyone. Using years of experience, our Bartow County family law attorneys can assist you in not only getting custody but making sure you receive fair and equitable support as well. For the assistance of a family law attorney you can count on, choose Family Matters Law Group.

Father’s Rights

A preconceived misconception in custody battles is that the mother is granted primary custody, where the child lives most of the time, and the father is granted visitation usually every other weekend. While this may be a common occurrence, the law does not give the mother any preferential consideration. By law, the courts are compelled to grant primary placement to whichever parent can provide the best environment and best serve the child(ren)’s interests regardless of gender. 

If you’re a father and are in the Bartow County area and believe you can provide a loving, healthy, and stable place for your child, we can help you obtain primary custody. Your rights as a father are in no way secondary to those of the mother. As a father’s rights attorney, we can also fight to help you get joint legal custody, allowing you equal say in any decision-making involving the child(ren).

Bartow County Custody Lawyers

While people would generally prefer to work together and come up with a solution that best serves the child(ren), the sad reality is that’s not always possible. Emotions and feelings can cloud judgment and lead to an impasse. We will negotiate aggressively yet fairly, present applicable evidence, along with strategic legal strategies to get the best possible outcome for you and your entire family. Custody battles are usually very hard on everyone, parents and children both. 

Unwed fathers also have the added burden of proving paternity and legitimation in a custody battle. Paternity and legitimation are two separate aspects in which paternity refers to the biological element and legitimation refers to the father playing a significant role in the child(ren)’s life. If you find yourself in the unenviable position of being locked in a custody dispute, the group of Bartow County family law attorneys at Family Matters Law Group have the perspective and the experience to come to an equitable result for all parties involved.


Alimony is not always part of any divorce decree. Typically this is only considered when the incomes between spouses vary greatly. In that case, the spouse with a much larger income makes monthly payments to the other spouse to continue to live in the manner to which they are accustomed. Despite popular opinion, like custody, alimony is also gender-neutral, dependent only upon the incomes of each individual. We’re often considered the best divorce attorney for men, because we fight just as hard for men’s rights as we do for women’s. No matter your gender, if you are being asked to pay alimony, and you think the amount is too high, Family Matters Law Group, your Bartow County law firm, can help you!

Bartow County Child Support

Another issue we deal with is ensuring child support orders are equitable and do not create undue financial hardship while providing for the child(ren). Whether you are talking about primary placement or legal custody, both parents can be in a very stressful situation. You need someone who can guide you through the process and speak intelligently towards the child(ren)’s best interests across the spectrum from physical, mental, education to religious and moral while maintaining a gender-neutral perspective.

Division of Property

Another sticking point in a divorce proceeding is the division of property and other assets. You need an attorney on your side who has the knowledge and experience to fight for what you deserve and obtain a fair settlement. Division of property includes any real estate, furniture, vehicles, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and more. It’s important to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side to ensure that every aspect of property and assets is included in a fair settlement.
