  • Try Findlaw.com. Look for a "Family Law" lawyer in your area.

  • I would call the local state adoption agency and ask their legal dept. They know all the laws and can make recommendations and you know it's done right. If you pick someone out of a book they may practice law and even adoption law but possibly as a side line. that happened to my niece and she lost a lot of money and the adoption wasn't valid.

  • Lawyers have to do a certain amount of pro bono work to maintain their bar. Normally counties have legal clinics once a month where you can get free advice & if your income & legal issue warrant it you might get represented for free. Search for legal aid or legal clinic in Georgia online or call your county clerk to ask about it.
