The staff at Chambless & Chambless are well respected for their unwavering commitment to compassionate representation. They recognize that there is no substitute for careful preparation and hard work, and they approach each case with a determination to resolve conflicts efficiently and obtain the best possible results for their clients.

Going through a divorce or battling over child custody issues can be one of the most challenging experiences of your life. Your Georgia divorce and family law attorney should be as invested in the outcome as you are.

Family law cases often involve very private matters. You need to be able to trust that your lawyer will listen to you and recommend solutions that are optimum for you and your family. You need to be confident that your interests will be at the forefront of all decisions.

The attorneys at Chambless & Chambless take the time to learn about their clients’ unique situations. Since they work closely with every client, they are able to help devise plans that are truly in the best interests for today and the future. While they are focused on all aspects of GA divorce and family law, many of their clients come to them with concerns about:

  • Alimony
  • Child Support
  • Divorce
  • Separation
  • Child Custody and Parenting Plans
  • Adoption
  • Domestic Violence Orders of Protection
  • Dependency and Neglect Cases


Alimony is a payment made by one party to another after a divorce and is determined by a judge or through mutual agreement. Alimony in Georgia is only rarely awarded and is either “rehabilitative” or “permanent.”

Child Support

Georgia employs an “Income Shares Model” to child support that takes many factors into consideration, including rental income, income from self-employment, bonuses, salaries, and more. Child support is calculated using a worksheet designed by the Georgia legislative branch.

Parenting Plans

The courts sit as parens patriae, meaning that they have the ability to override the parents’ wishes in order to determine what is best for minor children. Except in rare cases, they strive to ensure both parents have regular contact with children after the divorce.
