THE WILLIAMS FIRM, P.C.
Divorce and other complex family law matters can be emotionally overwhelming and may have a significant impact on your parental and financial rights.
GEORGIA FAMILY LAW
What is Family Law? It is the law of formation, modification and dissolution of families and their family structure. Families are formed in a variety of ways, from adoption, in-vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, step parents, paternity and legitimation or premarital agreements. After formation, they can require modification via separation agreement, or anti-nuptial agreements or they can be terminated via divorce or termination of parental rights. After termination, there is often the need to enforce the rules of the termination. Though family structures may change, the children that are the offspring of such families remain and the need to determine the custody and support for those children remains.
Our firm has the experience and expertise to navigate the changes in your family structure from beginning to end. Whether you are starting with an adoption or ending with a divorce we understand how Georgia law affects the changes in your family structure and can advise you of the options available to you to help you select the most appropriate choices for you and your family.
We also understand that there is more to changing your family than just “the paperwork”. Changing your family is one of the most difficult challenges you can face in life. Sometimes, just knowing that you have a dedicated and knowledgeable professional working on your behalf can be a significant source of relief.
Attorney Karen Brown-Williams offers knowledgeable and strategic legal representation to clients throughout the Alpharetta, Marietta and surrounding areas. She has handled all aspects of family litigation for nearly 25 years. As a result, she is able to advise you as to the best course of action in your case.

ADOPTION, SURROGACY, INVITRO (IVF) FERTILIZATION, ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION
Families are formed in a variety of ways. We want to help clients with the creation of their families regardless of the method of creation.
Spousal maintenance can be a highly contested part of any divorce. We will protect your rights under the law.
CHILD CUSTODY AND VISITATION
Custody and visitation matters are of paramount importance to you and your children. We will help you reach a result that is in your child’s best interests. We are knowledgeable as to all custody issues, including alienation.
Whether you anticipate receiving or paying child support, our law firm will protect your rights.
DIVORCE (CONTESTED AND UNCONTESTED)
Our law firm represents clients in divorce actions. Whether your case is resolved in negotiations or through litigation, we will provide service geared toward accomplishing your goals.
PRENUPTIAL AND POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS
Our law firm drafts, reviews and revises prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We will devote our best efforts to drafting a document that will withstand any later legal challenge.
PATERNITY AND LEGITIMIZATION
Children arrive in families with or without marriage. Those children who’s parents decide not to marry face additional challenges. We help each family face and address such challenges so that children have a functional parental unit so that such children may grow and thrive.
SAME SEX MARRIAGE
The United States Supreme Court recognized the right of people of the same sex to marry. Georgians now have the right to marry another, regardless of their sex. We work with those who wish to form and dissolve families with members of the same sex.
TERMINATION OF RIGHTS
The rights of parents are of great importance under Georgia law. However, they are not absolute. We are a firm that are intimately familiar with the rights of parents and the rights of children to have parents who appropriately parent, as defined under Georgia law.
