Atlanta’s Leading Divorce Attorneys

Compassionate, Confident, effective. 

Taking the next step in life isn’t easy. Hard things never are. That’s why finding a trusted hand to help steer you through the divorce process is critical to ensuring positive outcomes. We’re listeners and advocates. We do this work every day, and have the experience you need to get the outcomes you deserve.


What we do

Starting over,
the right way


Contested Divorce


High Asset Divorce


Alimony & Child Support


Child Custody


Contempt of Prior Order



Mediation & Divorce

Unlike traditional divorce litigation, mediation allows couples to maintain control over the outcome of their divorce and make decisions that are tailored to their unique needs and interests.

Custody Agreements

Children are a part of your family and dividing the family requires working through custody. Every family is unique and crafting a custody agreement that works best for you is one of our specialties. 

Division of Assets

But what about the stuff? Who gets the house? What if we have separate retirement accounts? Is a pet an asset? We’ve seen it all and will advocate for you to get what you deserve out of your marriage. 

Pre & Post Nuptials

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can be valuable tools for protecting your financial interests and avoiding potential conflicts in the future. We have extensive experience in crafting agreements to ensure that your rights are protected both now and in the future.

“I felt a huge sense of relief after deciding to work with the Barnhart team for my divorce. They are highly knowledgeable, experienced, and professional, but they are also kind and real people. I always felt comfortable to speak freely and ask lots of questions. From that first meeting to the last, they made me feel like I would get through this hard thing! I truly cannot recommend the Barnhart team highly enough.”

– Abbey C.

How It works

Getting started is simple, schedule a consult today to start exploring a new path forward.

Everything starts with a zero obligation consultation where we listen to you to better understand your circumstance and discuss the best options for moving forward.

Depending on your case and circumstances, we will develop a strategy specifically tailored to obtain your most desired outcome.

Unfortunately, divorce cases may require ongoing legal support. As your post-nuptial needs evolve, we are committed to advocating for your rights and fighting for your best interests every step of the way.
