Child Custody


Prenuptial Contracts


Child Support

  • How we can help…

    You’ve been served with divorce paperwork, and you weren’t even aware that your spouse was considering filing. What do you do next? Our attorneys will walk you through the divorce process – custody, visitation, child support, alimony, distribution of assets and debts – and help you decide what is in your best interests.   Divorce is stressful and sometimes you need professional assistance to help you through the process. That’s why we have counselors available for referral.

  • How we can help…

    Often times in contested custody disputes, parents forget that they’re not the only family members being affected.  A Guardian ad Litem can help the children understand that they too have a voice in the pending action, narrow the focus to those issues that directly affect them, and assist the court in its decision regarding the children’s best interests.

  • How we can help…

    You divorced out-of-state and now must file a contempt against a former spouse currently residing in Georgia? Our firm can register your divorce decree and in so doing give Georgia courts the authority to hear your contempt action and provide you the relief you seek.

  • How we can help…

    You have a family member who’s having difficulty managing their personal and/or financial affairs due to an existing health condition.  We can help by establishing a guardianship and/or conservatorship  which wil make caring for you loved one less stressful and less worrisome.

  • How we can help…

    You have a child out of wedlock. Shortly after the child’s born, the mother refuses to allow you to see the baby.   We can help you to establish your paternal rights and ensure that you have the opportunity to share the parental relationship you deserve with your child.


"She was truly the game changer..."

"I’ve worked with Attorney Brown since 2019. She was truly the game changer in both of my cases and overall custody circumstance. Ultimately, if not for Attorney Brown, my family and I wouldn’t have the strong bond & presence in my daughter’s life that we do today. She was a true blessing to my family and I, and we couldn’t be happier with the results she has gotten us in both tours with the family division. She really is a fighter and believes in standing up for her clients and their rights. Hands down, Attorney Brown is the only attorney I would recommend to any who needs assistance with their family legal matter."

"What I valued most was her legal knowledge, focus, and experience in conjunction with her integrity and commitment..."

"After the sudden and tragic death of my daughter, Attorney Lytia Brown handled the legal work for the estate and for an insurance claim. What I valued most was her legal knowledge, focus, and experience in conjunction with her integrity and commitment in all areas of the cases. During our meetings, she was always punctual, prepared/organized and paid close attention to detail. Attorney Brown is an adept communicator in both spoken and written word. Simultaneously, she presented herself as an empathetic and caring person and always very pleasant - even with business at hand. Additionally, I was (and remain) happy to support a reliable minority-owned business. "

I can’t thank you enough.

"This storm of being stuck in a dead end marriage hovered over my head for almost 7 years. I was emotional stuck. I couldn’t move on with anyone else due to this. I didn’t even feel comfortable posting on social media due to the affiliation with my x-wife. I missed so many life changing events due to being stuck under this storm. I didn’t want to go at it alone I knew I needed help. Attorney Gilliard was the light that broke through that storm for me. Seven years is a long time so being glad to see her is an understatement. Thank you so much. I have a new lease on life and also able to move forward with my life. I can’t thank you enough."
– L. Brown

About a year after my divorce finalized, I called upon her law firm for help with custody issues. Once again, she was there every step of the way. I was very satisfied with the attention and time dedicated to my cases. If you are ever going through a divorce or custody issues I would highly recommend Brown, Geiger & Associates!"
– A. Towns

"I had the pleasure of working with Royce Bluitt from Brown, Geiger & Asssociates in 2014 regarding my divorce. I came to them in search of someone to help me through my divorce process. I was a homeschooling mom and very scared to find someone that would have my best interest at hand, understand where I was coming from and help me and my children. I could not have asked for a better firm then Brown, Geiger and Associates, not only did they do everything possible to help me but they also put the children as a top priority. They were always on top of everything and willing to help whenever they could. They worked as a team to fight for me and what I deserved. I highly recommend this firm for any matter and I will continue to use them in the future! LOVE THEM!"
