A couple's decision to divorce can begin a lengthy and painful process, both financially and emotionally. Stewart Melvin & Frost's divorce and family law team has the experience, expertise and (most importantly) the compassion to successfully guide the divorcing husband or wife through the legal steps toward dissolution of their marriage.
Attorney Lydia Sartain, who leads the firm's Divorce and Family Law division, is well-respected throughout the region and state of Georgia for her longtime work in child advocacy. She balances her knowledge of family law with an acute sensitivity for the interests of children, evidenced by the fact that the courts have appointed her in numerous divorce cases to serve as guardian ad litem for the children of divorcing couples.
Ms. Sartain's background as a former criminal prosecutor is also a key asset in divorce situations that involve criminal activity or result in a jury trial.
The Divorce and Family Law division is supported by the vast resources of the entire firm in areas of expertise such as tax and estate planning, asset protection and IRS representation that may be utilized in a divorce case.
