Do genes determine possibility of divorce?

For years, psychologists have believed and agreed that one's environment as a child will affect one's adulthood. So, those individuals whose parents divorced during their childhood years are likely to follow in mom and dad's footsteps and end up filing for divorce as well. However, a recent study suggests environment may not play as big a role as once thought. Couples in Georgia and elsewhere may end up getting divorced because of their DNA.

When might one consider an annulment over a divorce?

While many marriages start out with each spouse having the best of intentions and bright hopes for the future, not all marriages begin this way. There are numerous reasons as to why marital unions don't thrive, and some of them start before or shortly after vows are said. For some individuals in Georgia and elsewhere, under certain circumstances there may be the desire to seek an annulment instead of a divorce. When might that be appropriate?

How does divorce work?

Ending one's marriage may seem simple and complex all at the same time. How exactly does divorce work? The answer to that question may be different for every divorcing couple in Georgia.

Sometimes going through divorce is hard to do

Wouldn't it be nice if all divorces could be completed without conflict? While there are those in Georgia and elsewhere who seem to have a relatively easy time getting through their divorce proceedings, others find that they simply cannot come to agreeable terms, making the whole thing drag on longer than expected. This seems to be the case with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

3 financial steps women should take when preparing for divorce

Are you a woman considering divorce or being faced with the reality that your husband wants to separate? No matter whether you initiate the divorce, it is a stressful process to go through. You may not even know where to start. There are so many issues to think of-finances, custody and property, just to name a few. Where do you begin?

A few downsides of a quickie divorce

When one is ready to move on from his or her marriage, the thought of a long, drawn-out dissolution process can seem too much to bear. Getting a quickie divorce just sounds so much better. While getting through the process as fast as possible may seem desirable, in the long run Georgia residents who go this route may find that doing so really did not serve their best interests.

One reason a DIY divorce is a bad idea

There is something about doing things for oneself that brings a sense of accomplishment. Unfortunately, there are certain projects that going the DIY route is probably not the wisest choice. Divorce, for example, is something with which Georgia residents may want to consider seeking assistance from an experienced attorney.

Just about divorce season again

There are two times of the year that seem to see a spike in couples filing to dissolve their marriages: March and August. While the study on this was done in one particular state, it seems that this happens in other states as well. So, in Georgia and elsewhere, it may just be about divorce season again.
