Gainesville Divorce, Child Custody & Family Law Firm

Gainesville GA family law firm Lawyer Attorney Braselton Flowery Branch JeffersonGoing through divorce and child custody litigation is nothing less than traumatic and severely frustrating. You need a competent, assertive Georgia attorney by your side when facing these and other important family issues. Attorney William M. (Bill) Brownell, Jr. at family law firm of The Brownell Law Office zealously advocates for your rights and provides the protection you desperately  need through these potentially life altering proceedings. We practice in most areas of family law proceedings, including:

  • Divorce
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Modification
  • Contempt
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Mediation
  • Paternity and Legitimation


Through mediation or litigation, our firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Divorce should not lead to financial crises. We will help you obtain the spousal support you deserve, so you can continue to live as you did during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation
We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. At The Brownell Law Office, we advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing. And child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can help you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

As time goes by, the circumstances of your ex-spouse will change as will the needs of your children. It could be that certain visitation provisions no longer work or that primary physical custody should be changed from one parent to the other. We will advocate for you to obtain court ordered modifications that are in the best interest of your children and you.

If your ex-spouse is refusing to follow all of the provisions of your divorce decree ordered by the court, it may be necessary to bring a contempt action in order to force compliance.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Georgia authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut through bureaucratic red tape.  We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex juvenile court laws of Georgia to protect your parental rights.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than trial. We can help you obtain the best possible divorce settlement.
