When you work with the Ward Law Firm, we take care of everything. We advise you on legal matters pertaining to your alimony case and execute the legal process, file the paperwork, and handle all the intricacies.

But we share with you these resources to give you a better idea of what to expect as you file for alimony in a divorce or seek to modify or enforce an existing order.

First, if your case goes before the court, the hearing will likely take place at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center.


Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center (GJAC)

75 Langley Drive

Lawrenceville, GA 30046


Directions to the GJAC.


We will negotiate with your ex-spouse to reach divorce and other agreements out of court. But in some cases, the other side does not consent to a fair agreement and the case must go before the court.

We will make sure you know what to expect in court and prepare you for the experience. This can help ease your nerves prior to your appearance.

We Connect You to Resources to Establish a Fair Alimony Order

We will make sure you have access to the resources you need to establish what would be a fair amount of alimony. This often includes working with a forensic account if you suspect your ex-spouse is hiding assets or as complicated questions arise about your assets.

We work with respected accounting professionals in Gwinnett County to make sure we enter negotiations or court with the requisite evidence to support your case.

Resources for Abused Spouses

If your relationship with your ex-spouse involves abuse, make this known to your attorney. Intimidation may be a troubling factor when negotiating alimony and other aspects of divorce or family law with an abusive spouse. Let us represent you so you exercise all rights afforded to you under Georgia law.

We can help you acquire protective orders and will handle all negotiations with your ex-spouse and his or her attorney. In addition to representing you in your divorce case, we can help you find the services and assistance you need to escape an abusive marriage.

In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1 right away.
