Experienced Divorce Attorneys Helping Clients in Evans, Augusta and Surrounding Areas

No one ever wants their marriage to end in divorce, but sometimes things get to a point where divorce is inevitable. When you are contemplating divorce, talk to our Augusta divorce attorneys about your options. At the Law Offices of Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, we help clients and their children through the divorce process. Located in the Augusta, Georgia, area, we can help you understand Georgia laws involving divorce, property division and child custody so that you can make decisions that are right for you and your children.

Georgia divorce law involves many legal decisions. Among other things, in divorce, spouses must discuss issues such as:

  • Division of property and debts
  • Child custody orders and visitation
  • Child support and alimony
  • Other important issues

Although modification may be possible in the future, it is very important for couples to make decisions they can live with. Sometimes these discussions are easy. Sometimes they are difficult. This can be particularly true when the grounds for divorce involve adultery or other marital fault. While spouses may seek a no-fault divorce under Georgia law, faults such as adultery may come into play when addressing spousal support/alimony disputes or property division disputes.

Experienced and Aggressive Columbia County, Georgia, Divorce Attorneys

When a fight is needed to protect your rights, our Columbia County divorce lawyers never hesitate to take action for you. We know what you are entitled to, and we make sure that no one takes that away from you during your divorce. Augusta attorney Shawn Hammond is as tough in court as he was fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. He will not be intimidated by your spouse's legal counsel. Nor is he intimidated by handling complex issues in a military divorce.

At the same time, sometimes a fight isn't the best way for families to resolve their differences during a divorce. Working collaboratively saves couples time, money and emotional stress. It can be best for children who won't have to be exposed to a long, drawn-out legal battle. When couples collaborate on a plan that works for them, they often do not have to depend on a judge's ruling to create all the terms of the divorce, and they may save money on legal fees and court costs. They can make sure that the divorce agreement or legal separation agreement works for them and their unique needs.
