Some individuals do not have the desire or ability to hire a lawyer to represent them in a traditional fashion, but they may need legal help with a particular issue or portion of their case. The Cobb County Bar Association’s Family Law and Younger Lawyers Sections have worked together to provide a number of attorneys who will offer specific, limited legal services at set rates. Information on this type of legal assistance will be provided to workshop participants.

This workshop will assist you with the following case types:

  • Divorce
  • Contempt
  • Paternity/Legitimation
  • Modification

Navigating through the legal system can be extremely difficult. Each case is individualized by its own set of facts; however, there are some basic rules that all cases must follow which this workshop will address.

No workshop can teach you everything you need to know about representing yourself in any legal action, but this workshop is designed to answer some of the basic questions you may have:

  • What information do I need in order to file?
  • Are there mandatory forms that I need?
  • How do I schedule my case for a hearing?
  • What are the operating procedures of the Court?

Forms for these case types will be available for purchase at the seminar. The cost for the forms are $15.00 per packet. Cash only—exact change required.

For further information, please call the ADR office at 770-528-1812.
