Legal problems and family rarely coincide smoothly, so if life doesn't go as expected, knowledgeable Canton family law attorneys may be exactly what you need. Family law encompasses all types of domestic legal issues and at the Law Office of Eric A. Ballinger, we can advise you on everything from divorce to child support and everything in between.


There is no such thing as an easy divorce. No matter how you and your soon-to-be ex feel about each other or what the circumstances are, a divorce is a serious and emotional event. You must retain the services of an experienced divorce attorney to advise you of your rights and protect your family. Attorney Eric A. Ballinger has more than 18 years of experience in divorce litigation. Together with his staff, Attorney Ballinger understands the issues you are facing and knows how to listen to your needs. With countless hours of courtroom trial experience, our firm is not afraid to stand up for the rights of our clients, whether at the settlement table, in mediation or in the courtroom. In fact, Attorney Ballinger has successfully argued divorce cases all the way to the Supreme Court of Georgia.

Child Custody

While Georgia law requires the courts to watch over children, it is our job as parents to make sure they are protected. You want and need the very best and that includes choosing the lawyer willing to fight for the interests of your children. You need a lawyer whose voice is respected by the court. Attorney Ballinger has experience in hundreds of child custody cases and countless custody trials. In fact, he is trained as a Guardian ad Litem and is regularly called on by the courts in Cherokee County to represent the interests of children in some of the toughest child custody cases.

Child Support

Since the law changed in 2007, determining child support under Georgia law is very complex and requires the use of spreadsheets, tables and deviations. Formulating child support takes more than running the numbers. It takes a skilled and experienced advocate who knows the law, can navigate the complexities of child support calculation and present your case effectively in court. The legal team at the Law Office of Eric A. Ballinger has the specialized training and trial experience to best present your case to the court, whether it is an initial award of child support or a modification of a preexisting child support award. In fact, we have argued cases involving child support to the Supreme Court of Georgia, helping to shape Georgia's child support laws.
