Real Help For Family Law Issues

Family law problems come to people from all walks of life. William B. Mills, P.C., represents clients in cases involving all types of family law matters.

Attorney William B. Mills has more than a decade of experience helping clients in family law matters. He is skilled, compassionate and understanding.

Helping You Navigate Complex Legal Matters

Through the years, Mr. Mills has represented family law clients in cases such as:

  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Postnuptial agreements
  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Other private adoptions

No one gets married planning to divorce down the road. This law firm offers experienced representation for Georgia residents navigating contested divorce, uncontested divorce, military divorce and divorce between people who had prenuptial agreements in place.

Guidance In Divorce Cases

Divorce often turns families upside down. This is new territory for many couples. Mr. Mills will provide compassionate representation, making sure to protect you and what you deserve in a divorce. A big issue that must be addressed is the division of assets.

These can be contentious questions: Which spouse will keep the house? How will other property be divided in the divorce? Will you or your spouse be expected to pay spousal support (alimony) to the other? And differentiating separate property from marital property is not always as straightforward as expected.

Help With Child-Related Issues

Child custody and visitation questions bring even more powerful emotions. Parents are often willing to go any length to maximize the time they will have with their children after a separation or divorce – or in a never-married situation. We will provide the guidance you need.

In addition, our law firm helps parents obtain emergency orders to transfer custody or to compel one parent to pay child support to the other even before a divorce or custody case is complete. An emergency order can accelerate a case scheduled for several weeks in the future. This is one reason it is important to seek legal advice sooner rather than later once serious domestic problems come to light.

What Is A Child’s Best Interest?

Mothers’ rights, fathers’ rights and grandparents’ rights all take a back seat to the family law court’s primary focus: a child’s best interests. Our law firm sometimes hires private investigators as part of the discovery phase of a contested custody matter.

Paternity actions are sometimes necessary in cases where an unmarried father fears he will have no right to spend time with his child. Mothers may seek legitimation for the sake of collecting child support from the father. Laws differ between Tennessee and Georgia in the area of paternity and fathers’ rights. Mr. Mills helps clients from both states navigate the court systems in paternity cases.
