Family Law 

Family law is an area of law that deals with legal issues and disputes arising within familial relationships. It encompasses a wide range of matters, including marriage, divorce, child custody, adoption, spousal support, child support, property division, domestic violence, and more. Family law aims to provide legal frameworks and mechanisms to protect the rights and interests of individuals within family units, as well as ensure the wellbeing of children and families.

Our firm assists clients in navigating the complexities of family law, providing legal representation and advice to those involved in family-related disputes or seeking legal assistance with family matters. Our role involves guiding clients through the legal processes associated with marriage, divorce, child custody, and other family-related issues.

Probate Law 

Probate is a legal process that occurs after someone passes away. It involves validating and administering the deceased person's estate, which includes their assets, debts, and property. The purpose of probate is to ensure that the deceased person's final wishes are carried out and that their assets are distributed correctly.

At Calhoun Law Firm, we guide clients through the Georgia probate process. We often help with tasks such as filing the necessary court documents, managing creditors' claims, resolving disputes among beneficiaries, and ensuring that the estate is distributed according to the deceased person's will or, if there is no will, according to the law of intestacy. Our goal is to help ease the burden on the executor and ensure that the probate process is handled efficiently and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Real Estate 

The practice of real estate law includes various legal aspects related to property, land, and real estate transactions. It encompasses a wide range of issues, including property ownership, buying and selling properties, leasing agreements, landlord-tenant disputes, zoning and land use regulations, property development, financing, and more. 

Our firm provides legal advice and assistance to clients in all types of legal real estate matters. This includes conducting due diligence on properties, reviewing and drafting contracts, negotiating terms of purchase or sale agreements, ensuring compliance with local regulations and zoning laws, resolving disputes between landlords and tenants, handling title searches and insurance, assisting with property development and financing, and representing clients in real estate litigation if necessary. Our extensive knowledge of real estate law enables us to guide clients through complex legal processes, protect their rights, mitigate risks, and ensure that their real estate transactions are conducted in a legally sound manner.
