What Our Clients Are Saying

I have used Kitchens New Cleghorn twice. I have never been happier with any service than I was with theirs. Both times, I braced for the worst possible outcome and both times, I got far more than I could have expected. The staff is professional, friendly and quite competent. Their reputation precedes them and for good reason. Jeff Cleghorn and Jonathan Forbes were a sheer pleasure to work with and I literally owe them a debt of gratitude that I can never repay. They help those in need and their compassionate care goes far above and beyond what I have ever seen in the legal profession. I can recommend them without hesitation.

Helping clients achieve favorable resolutions – Sample Case Types Include:

High Net Worth Division Strategies

Jeff Cleghorn is well versed in helping clients achieve positive outcomes in divorce cases involving the division of high-asset marital estates. Having someone help you understand your rights and obligations regarding asset division is crucial for a successful resolution. Mr. Cleghorn works with clients to create a strategic solution that will help achieve your desired results.

High net worth asset division can be among the most complicated, emotionally charged aspects of any divorce. When considering real estate, potential business ownership, investments and more, the divorce attorneys at Kitchens New Cleghorn brings their focused business acumen to your specific circumstances in order to create a strategy to protect and preserve assets in an equitable manner. With expert legal and financial experience in high net worth division strategies, all factors are reviewed and analyzed to ensure there’s protection for what is important to clients.

High-Intensity Child Custody Disputes

When dealing with a child custody dispute it is imperative that you have experienced counsel with the skills needed to properly navigate the Atlanta legal process in your favor. Jeff Cleghorn and his team have successfully represented numerous clients on sensitive child custody disputes and have helped achieve positive outcomes in many high-intensity situations.

Contested Divorce Litigation in Atlanta & Surrounding Areas

A contested divorce occurs when spouses can’t agree on vital issues concerning the breakup of their marital union. Some of those can include:

  • Terms of alimony payments
  • Child custody arrangements/schedules
  • Division of marital property
  • And More

In some instances a divorce is acrimonious and contested from day 1, and in other instances spouses may begin the divorce process on the same page with regards to sensitive issues only to find they ultimately disagree. In either case, when an agreement on personal details can’t be reached, a court will usually suggest mediation to reach a settlement and avoid a more costly and emotional trial. Should that process not work, the divorce would proceed to trial. It’s key that you have experienced litigation attorneys familiar with the trial process that will work hard to present the court with facts and information that will benefit you. If you think your divorce will be contested and may reach trial, reach out to our Atlanta contested divorce attorneys to discuss the details of your case.

Additional Georgia Divorce Information

Under Georgia law, one or both of spouses must have lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing. In addition, you must choose one of 13 grounds under which you may file for a divorce, ranging from adultery, where one party has been unfaithful, to desertion, in which one spouse has not been residing with or providing any financial support to the other spouse for more than a year. In most cases, we may recommend filing for a ‘no-fault divorce’, meaning simply that one spouse states the marriage is irreparably broken. While an uncontested divorce can take as little as 30 to 60 days, in the case of a contested divorce it can take considerably longer.

Divorce is never a pleasant experience, but there is no need to go through it alone. Important life decisions such as ending a marriage require time, patience and skilled legal assistance.
