Protection from Family Violence

Family violence is a serious and potentially life-threatening circumstance that often requires immediate legal action be taken to protect individuals, children, and their extended family members. Whether you have been the victim or family violence or have been accused of family violence, Elovitz, Edwards, O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC is prepared to assist you throughout this challenging and emotionally exhausting process.

Paternity & Legitimation

Whether you are a father who is being denied the right to see your child or a single mother who is struggling to raise a child with little or no support from the child’s biological father, a paternity action may be needed to rectify either of these situations. Elovitz, Edwards, O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC, can help you establish your legal rights in either of these situations.

Prenuptial Agreements

These agreements are drafted before and after marriage to answer questions such as how property and assets may be divided if a divorce occurs. The hope is that the premarital or a postmarital agreement serves to answer any questions that may arise. Our firm drafts these agreements and also can look at an existing prenuptial agreement to see if it is valid in Georgia, another State, or in another Country.

How Elovitz, Edwards, O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC, Stands Out By Standing Up For Children In Family Law

Our attorneys enjoy helping families in times of conflict. We get to see individuals and families move forward, past divorce, and on to new ways of life. The law firm helps parents avoid bitter battles and maximize opportunities that go along with child custody and visitation arrangements. In spite of sadness over a divorce, many parents with child custody orders discover benefits of closer relationships with their children, made possible by more one-on-one time and regular schedules.

Child Custody Focused On Children’s Well-Being And Parent-Child Relationships

Of all aspects of a separation or divorce, child custody and visitation may have the greatest impact on the future. The outcome of a child custody case greatly affects parent-child relationships and overall family dynamics.

Attorneys of this law firm regularly take on guardian ad litem work, advocating for children’s rights. They are active in juvenile court advocacy work. In these cases and in child custody modification cases, the attorneys at Elovitz, Edwards, O’Nan & Buerlein, LLC, always keep children’s best interests in the forefront.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Experts

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the procedure for settling disputes without litigation, such as arbitration, mediation, or negotiation. ADR procedures are usually less costly and more expeditious. They are increasingly being utilized in disputes that would otherwise result in litigation, including high-profile labor disputes, divorce actions, and personal injury claims.

One of the primary reasons parties may prefer ADR proceedings is that, unlike adversarial litigation, ADR procedures are often collaborative and allow the parties to understand each other’s positions. ADR also allows the parties to come up with more creative solutions that a court may not be legally allowed to impose.

Rachel Elovitz and Gillian O’Nan are both trained mediators with vast experience.
