Legal Services


The Eaton Law Firm, P.C. offers caring and professional assistance in your divorce or family law matter. We provide affordable, client-focused representation and consultations in the following areas:

Georgia State Bar License number available on request.

DIVORCE – CONTESTED divorces can drag on and cost a fortune. We focus on resolving your case in your favor through negotiations. However, we will fight for you if necessary. We work to keep costs down and delay to a minimum.

DIVORCE – UNCONTESTED divorces at very reasonable rates where your spouse will consent and there are no assets to distribute or minor children to consider. Even if your matter is more complicated, you may still be able to keep your divorce uncontested and stay out of court, saving you time and money.

CUSTODY / VISITATION – The toughest aspect of ending a relationship can be custody and visitation. We focus on helping you find real-life, workable solutions in the best interests of your children.

CHILD AND SPOUSAL SUPPORT – We will work to get you the support you need. We also handle cases in which our clients need to reduce or increase the amount of child support paid.

MISCELLANEOUS — We handle other matters such as post-judgment actions, motions, temporary protective orders, relocation, etc.

AGREEMENTS – We will draft a prenuptial, separation or other agreement that lets you begin your marriage or move on with peace of mind. You can control your own future, rather than let a judge decide it for you. We may also be able to help you protect your premarital assets without having to inform your potential spouse or obtain a signature.

CONSULTATIONS – In addition to full representation, we offer consultations. Have your agreement reviewed, learn what you may expect to be relevant in a divorce, prepare for a court date, learn what to do and what your rights are.

To learn more, send electronic mail or call (770) 433-8121. Free phone consultation.


A note from “Jim” – a recent client from a case involving a supposed child-support debt:

I’m impressed by and appreciate how competently you are representing me. If the outcome is not in my favor it won’t be from lack of talented counsel…Thanks much and enjoy your weekend. Jim

Jim won his case – the Judge ruled that he actually owed no back child support to his ex-wife, and that she may actually owe Jim money.

Testimonial From Mr. John M.:
“The Eaton Law Firm and Charles Eaton were able to help me greatly. I was unrepresented during my divorce in 2003. I agreed to almost everything that my former wife’s attorney suggested including supervised visitation, no legal or physical custody and rather large child support arrangements. After 19 visits (mostly supervised) with my son in California and Colorado (she moved), my former wife was unwilling to change much of our agreement. Charles helped in a calm collected way for an affordable fee. Thanks to Charles, this past Christmas, my son visited me here in Georgia for the first time. He stayed at my house for a week! He will return in March for another week and he will spend two weeks with me this summer. In addition, Charles was able to have child support refigured and now it includes an allowance for my travel expenses. Last but not least, I now have joint legal custody of my son. Charles was easily accessible and has a wonderful paralegal (Raquel) to help when he is not available. My son and I thank you both!”

Testimonial by Mr. B.C.:
“For my divorce, I tried to do everything myself and, after the courts rejected a portion of my paperwork. It was apparent to me that I needed help and lots of it. I found The Eaton Law Firm’s advertisement on Craigslist and gave them a call since the rates were inexpensive…It was the best decision I could have made…I believe I got a lifetime of relief. Mr. Eaton informed me of everything I was missing and why some of the wording in my previously submitted documents would be rejected. After working out the payment details, they got right to work and provided documents that were accepted without a hitch by the Court.

Thank you, Charles, for helping put an end to a rather sad chapter in my life.”

On April 2, 2008, Attorney Charles Eaton had a final hearing in a Paulding County, Georgia, Divorce. Before the Final, Mr. Eaton’s client was paying over $ 1,600 per month alimony and child support under a prior Court Order (he had represented himself). He had no visitation. Mr. Eaton was able to secure a new Order reducing the total child support to less than $ 800 per month, and get him three days per week with his daughter.

June 24, 2008: The Georgia Department of Human Resources took a client to court for “unpaid” child support exceeding $ 10,000. The result was a dismissal of the case without the client paying or owing any arrears. The monthly child support going forward was reduced and the client was entitled to receive his tax refund and other funds held in escrow by the department.

December 10, 2008, Newton County Superior Court: the father of a client’s child sought to pay $ 700 in child support per month. Mr. Eaton was able to prove that a reasonable obligation for him is $ 1,131.21. UPDATE: on February 25, 2009, Mr. Eaton received a ruling on behalf of his client that the father must pay all of her attorney fees since December.

On March 5, 2009 Mr. Eaton got a child support establishment case against his client dismissed in Fulton County Superior Court.

July 7, 2009: Charles M. Eaton successfully petitioned the Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia to dismiss a $ 65,000 back child support case against a father on jurisdictional grounds.

July 16, 2009: Successfully obtained a ruling from the Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia (Judge Bowens) that a client is NOT the legal or biological father of his former girlfriend’s child. Client will not have to pay child support.

August 28, 2009: Won a ruling (based on the new child support statute) reducing a client’s child support from $ 625 to $ 358 per month though his income remained the same.

January 28, 2010: Obtained visitation order in contested modification case.

February 9, 2010: Obtained a divorce for a lady client who had been separated from her husband for about five years. She received primary physical custody, final decision making authority for the children and approximately $ 950 per month in child support. Also, she will receive 1/2 of any equity in the marital home, which was calculated to be in excess of $ 30,000. The husband had refused to provide any child support.

March 3, 2010: Obtained temporary custody for a FATHER in a contested legitimation and custody case.

June 14, 2010: Negotiated a solution to a child support arrears case: Eaton’s client, the Father, owes $ 42,000 for 12 years unpaid child support. Obtained an agreement by which he will stay out of jail, the mother’s claim for interest was dropped, and the debt will be paid off at the rate of $ 400.00 per month.

September 7, 2010: Obtained a court order reducing a Father’s child support payment from $ 1,200 to $ 718, and reducing his child support debt from approximately $ 15,000 to $ 8,000.
