I live in Georgia, my wife lives in Michigan. Should I have a Georgia or Michigan Lawyer for a divorce and child support issue

Alpharetta, GA |

I want to file for joint custody of our 2 children who are with my wife now in Michigan. At this particular time, over $600.00 is being taken out of my monthly check of $1100 - this does not leave me with enough money to take care of myself. I need an attorney that will fight for the rights of men to take my case. I have family that is willing to help me financially to pay for the attorney.

Assuming the children have been in Michigan at least six months they have jurisdiction in most situations, so you likely need a lawyer there.

A case would work in Georgia if the mother would consent and agree to that. Otherwise see a Michigan lawyer.
