Atlanta Divorce Lawyers for Women
Divorce affects everyone differently. While social norms have changed significantly over the decades, women may still be disadvantaged in a divorce scenario because of decisions they made to further their marriage over the years. For example, many women in Georgia are still the primary caregivers for minor children; women are also statistically more likely to have sacrificed their own educations or careers in exchange for the role of homemaker. When a marriage ends, these types of situations can leave women facing a future that is financially uncertain and frightening.
Choosing an attorney to protect your best interests is paramount. Regardless of the circumstance involved in your marriage or divorce, the experienced divorce attorneys at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC in Atlanta have been representing women throughout the state of Georgia for decades, helping to ensure your needs and rights are protected.
Choose a Lawyer you can Trust
Whether a divorce is contested or uncontested, the process can be stressful for everyone involved. For some types of legal matters, it may be fine to choose any attorney to represent you. In a divorce, however, the stakes are much higher and will likely affect your life in a variety of ways for years to come. For some people, high stress and emotions can impair judgment at a time when it is needed most. So, having a trusted advocate in your corner is critically important.
When you are looking for a divorce attorney, it is particularly important to choose an attorney with whom you feel comfortable. At Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC in Atlanta, we have earned the trust of many women through our diligent, compassionate, and strong representation.

Alimony payments are not automatic under Georgia divorce law, however in many cases alimony is needed. If alimony is appropriate and necessary, the experienced divorce attorneys at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC will help present your case in a way that demonstrates why an alimony award makes sense and will fight to make sure the amount of spousal support meets your needs – and your budget.
Child Custody and Support
For women who are the primary caregivers for their minor children, it is critically important to make sure the court understands all of the facts and circumstances when making custody determinations. The court considers a number of factors when making child support decisions including the amount of involvement each parent has in various aspects of the child’s life. Your divorce attorney must be able to show, through available evidence, that your child’s best interests will be met when custody is awarded to you.
An attorney with experience representing women’s needs in divorce actions will also be able to work closely with you to ensure that the amount of child support requested will be sufficient to help your child continue to receive the quality of life you want them to have.
You also need an attorney who will be able to help ensure property divisions are equitable. If you have a valid prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, your attorney will also work to make sure the terms of that agreement are enforced, as appropriate. The experienced Atlanta divorce attorneys at Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC are adept at helping women receive the property they are entitled to receive under Georgia law, through divorce proceedings.
