Summary

Welcome to Elovitz, Edwards, O'Nan and Buerlein - Family Law Attorneys. We are happy to help you. I have been practicing family law since 2001. Our firm is noted for our aggressive representation and I charge fair, flat fees. Potential clients can be assured that I have the necessary experience and dedication to family law, and will give each and every client the personal attention that their case requires. I have been practicing for 18 years, so I am considered an expert in my field and well regarded by opposing attorneys and judges.
My partners and I have a combined 66 years of experience.

Please note: I DO NOT handle cases when DFCS is involved nor do we handle 3rd party or grandparent custody cases. I also only handle cases in the immediate Atlanta Metro area.

I have a very low caseload, so I only handle one trial matter at a time. You will not have to worry about me not being able to handle your important hearing because I have another scheduled at the same time. I set aside time for each client and each case so you get my undivided attention. I will never hand your case off to an associate.

Some recent case results:
KB v. BJ – Fulton County
Father was a doctor who was ordered to pay his daughter’s private school tuition. He happily did so, and paid the mother $3500 in child support. He was shocked to learn the Mother had enrolled the child in boarding school 11 miles away from her home. This increased the tuition significantly, and Mother expected to continue to get her $3500 per month in child support for a child she had shipped off to boarding school. The Mother spent $20,000 in attorney’s fees (our client paid significantly less under the flat fee system) and the Father got a 40% reduction in child support – the exact number we asked for at trial.

KD v. KA – Gwinnett County
We represented a Father of 5 children, only 1 of which was biologically his. After a trial, he was awarded full custody of all the children.

Q. What legal rights do I have as a stepfather of an adult child living in the marital home to get them removed?
A: You can file for an eviction.
Q. I been married for almost 5 years, how much would it coast to obtain a divorce we both want a divorce but afraid of fees
A: Attorneys fees vary by attorney, based upon their experience and level of expertise. Some, like myself, charge flat fees. Some attorneys charge by the hour. If your divorce is uncontested, that will not cost as much as a contested divorce. It pays to do things correctly, so save for an attorney vs. trying to do it yourself.
Q. Jailed for Civil Contempt -- Back Child Support
A: She was jailed because the court found she had resources to pay child support and she chose not to.
Q. can the County of Los Angeles hold my Child Support case for 10 years then try to collect even if they knew where I was?
A: You need to talk to an attorney about your case, but in general, you will be liable for the child support.
Q. My daughter turns 18 in March. She will still be in high school. Can child support be extended until she graduates?
A: Normally, the child support order states that support continues through high school. Review your order to make sure it states that.
Q. As a NCP, I pay $1500/mo + 76% medical + 76% afterschool + 50% extra curriculm. Why doesn't CS cover the everything?
A: Those extras are part of the overall child support award. If you earn 76% of the income, that is why you are paying a larger percentage of extra expenses that must be covered.
Q. can a custodial parent go after the non custodial parents new spouse for child support?
A: No.
Q. Is 17 yr old son by only 3 days, a minor or adult in a custody dispute. Can he do or stay wherever he wants whenever,
