Does an attorney have to practice in the same county that you reside in to represent you?

My ex has 2 of our children and I have 2. He has more money than me right now and is threatening me with an attorney. I want to know if an attorney I have used in the past can represent me if I live in a county other than where he practices law?

The attorney you want to select can represent you.  The attorney is a member of the Georgia State Bar, which means practicing law throughout the state and is not limited by county.


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
