As your lawyer, I will help you navigate divorce and all that comes with it with a minimal amount of stress and wasting of assets.
In a legal system that often seems designed to produce endless conflict, I will seek to help you achieve your goals through negotiation, collaboration and mediation.
Family law involves the most important issues and relationships in your life. I strive to keep you in control of the outcome rather than let a judge decide.
I understand how important it is to maintain a strong relationship with your children, when your marriage or nonmarital relationship ends.
Protecting Your Interests In Family Court
Litigation is the stressful way to resolve a divorce or other family law case.

It can also be the most damaging to your family relationships and finances. While I am a very successful and effective litigator in family court when necessary, I view litigation is a last resort — not a foregone conclusion.
I am family law attorney Kathryn N. Hedden. As a certified civil and domestic mediator by the Georgia Office on Dispute Resolution, I have a thorough understanding of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques, such as mediation, collaborative law and other advanced means of reaching agreement in family and other civil disputes outside of court. My law office is in Cumming, Georgia, and I serve clients in metro Atlanta.Up For The Challenge
From collaborative to combative, complex to straightforward, I have extensive experience in a wide range of disputes.
Access To The Resources You May Need
Divorce and other family law issues often involve much more than the law. Individuals face a number of challenges, including emotional, psychological and financial hurdles. I work with a network of other professionals — family counselors, financial planners, accountants, etc. — who can provide guidance in a number of areas. You and I will work together to look beyond the difficulties you face now and equip you with the skills necessary to tackle any challenges you may face in the future.
Legal disputes are distressing enough the first time around. Nobody wants to address the same issues down the road because the initial outcomes were ineffective. That happens more often than you might think. I will help you reach solutions that stick, so you are not forced to return to court repeatedly to iron out the same problems.
"Kathryn has the education and experience you are seeking for any issue in family law, divorce, mediation, and many other facets of the legal system. More importantly, she has a natural talent with people. Her guidance and support made a world of difference for myself and my family. Most of us are not prepared for issues that involve the need for an attorney. The issues themselves throw our lives into chaos and out of balance. If ever you are in need of legal counsel, contact Kathryn. She is well prepared to assist and represent you. She is the calm in the storm." — Vette Middleton
"I will be eternally grateful to Kathy for all that she did to help me resolve a five year long divorce case and custody battle. She gave me a lot of excellent advice on how to handle my ex and what battles to fight. To say it was contentious would be an understatement. Her experience within the Forsyth County judicial system, Family Haven and her time spent serving as a guardian ad litem were instrumental in crafting a parenting plan to meet my son's needs. Additionally, she is a real pleasure to be around so I know that the process could have been more painful than it was. Kathy has also helped me with drafting medical poa's and wills, not to mention my deadbeat renters, so I appreciate the extent of her assistance. She is worth every dollar I have paid her, and I have no regrets about the outcome of my divorce."
