Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, in Gainesville, Georgia, has helped many Georgia families deal with divorce and other family law matters. We focus on what is best for our clients.


Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, can assist you in the many aspects of dissolution of marriages, including child custody, child support, property division and alimony. We will explain the law and how it affects your circumstances.

Child Custody, Visitation And Child Support

  • What are your rights and obligations?
  • How much will child support be?
  • How will parenting time — custody and visitation — be determined?
  • A child custody evaluation may be ordered by the judge

Our family law attorneys will answer all of your questions regarding the care of your children following a divorce.


Many courts have gone to mandatory mediation in domestic relations matters. Mediation can often be a cost-saving method of resolving complex divorce, child custody, and contempt and other domestic cases.

Alimony And Spousal Support

The judge or jury can consider numerous factors in determining whether alimony should be awarded, including but not limited to:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Causes of separation
  • Standard of living
  • Financement
  • Contributions, including homemaking, child care, education and career building
  • Condition of the parties, including separate estate, earning capacity and fixed liabilities
  • Such other factors as are equitable and proper

At Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, we will discuss each of these factors with you to determine if alimony is appropriate in your case.

Legitimation And Paternity

  • Were the parents married at the time the child was conceived?
  • Did the parents marry subsequent to the birth of the child?

We can assist you in establishing or denying the parentage of a child.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreement

Many people are getting married later in life, and therefore, they have accumulated significant property. We review and draft prenuptial and postnuptial agreements on a regular basis.

Grandparent And Third-Party Custody/Visitation Actions

The lawyers of Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP, represent grandparents, aunts and uncles in pursuit of visitation and/or custody. Parents who are sometimes suffering from addiction issues are unable to care for their children and the grandparents need to raise their children.

Contempt Actions

  • Has the mother or father been fully and timely paying child support?
  • Has the parent completed anger management as court ordered?
  • Is the parent refraining from drinking or consuming drugs when the children are in his/her care?

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence includes both emotional and physical abuse, threats, stalking and similar mistreatment. Our lawyers can determine whether a petition under the Family Violence Act is appropriate or whether a restraining order should be entered within the pending divorce action. We can also defend false allegations of abuse.


Our firm handles a wide range of adoptions, including but not limited to:

  • Stepparent adoptions
  • Third-party adoptions
  • Agency adoption
  • Relative adoptions

Juvenile Law

Juvenile courts of Georgia are empowered to hear issues surrounding:

  • Criminal charges/delinquency
  • Guardianships
  • Deprivation actions
  • Termination actions
