A significant part of the practice of law will inevitably intersect with family law issues. Ms. Hosea accepts a limited number of adoption and family law matters. Family law issues such as divorce when a special needs child is involved requires knowledge of the ongoing needs of that child well beyond the usual time that a non-custodial parent would be legally obligated to pay and provide child support. Additionally, when divorces occur later in life as couples approach retirement age, knowledge of their upcoming life planning challenges is critical for both spouses to ensure a life after divorce is equitable for all parties involved. Adoptions fall within the family law context when blended families come together, but a biological parent is often unavailable either by choice or by circumstance, creating a void where a child’s best interests would be served by formalizing the legal relationship between a step-parent and step-child. Ms. Hosea has represented biological parents, children, adoptive parents, and adult adoptees in the adoption process and provides adoption legal services for Georgia-based adoptions.
