Child custody relocation cases in Georgia

After a child custody order has been issued, there are situations which may arise leading the custodial parent to want to relocate with the child.

How stalking protective orders can help victims of violence

Some Georgia residents who have recently ended a romantic relationship or marriage find that their exes are unwilling to allow them to move on with their lives. In many cases, ex-partners may become violent or threaten to do so. They may frequently call, text or send letters to their exes, or they may follow them or hire someone to follow them. Stalkers do not always explicitly threaten to harm or kill their victims, but their behaviors are intended to cause their victims to feel constant fear.
