The Appalachian Family Law Information Center (AppFLIC or FLIC) was developed to assist residents of Pickens, Gilmer and Fannin Counties who wish to represent themselves in domestic legal matters or educate themselves about domestic issues.
AppFLIC has legal form packets and instructions available to assist in the following areas (some of which are available on-line): divorce (both with and without children), contempt, legitimation, child custody and visitation modifications, modification of child support, and name changes.
This website does not provide legal advice. Only a lawyer who does not work for the Family Law Center may provide you with legal advice.
The Appalachian Family Law Information Center recommends that parties seek the advice of a lawyer who will be familiar not only with the law, but will also be familiar with the procedures of the court. Should you choose to proceed without the advice of a lawyer, it is recommended that you familarize yourself with the Standing Orders for the Appalachian Judicial Circuit. A link to the Domestic Relations Standing Order may be found under the "Start Here" section. The information provided may or may not be useful in understanding the different aspects of appearing in court including the paperwork and /or forms necessary to proceed in court.
The Appalachian Family Law Information Center continues to monitor and evaluate the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus. Staff continues to be available to serve you. Please call us for assistance. The Appalachian Judicial Circuit and the Clerks of Superior Court are open for filing and questions. Please see https://www.gasupreme.us/ for more information.
