NOT JUST A LAW FIRM … A SOLUTION

October 2017 Archives

Is business litigation a must when a breach of contract occurs?

Business owners in Georgia and elsewhere use contracts to help their companies. Unfortunately, some may find that the people on the other ends of these legal documents are not living up to their responsibilities. When this happens, one question generally arises: is business litigation the only way to resolve the situation?

When domestic violence is an issue, a divorce attorney can help

In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month, this column would like to briefly touch on the different types of abuse that exist in some homes in Georgia and elsewhere. Domestic violence can go well beyond just physical abuse. No matter what type of violence one is experiencing in his or her marital relationship, a divorce attorney can help one break free.

Even when zoning is right, approval for use is still needed

In Georgia, certain pieces of real estate are set aside for specific purposes. For example, in Macon, there is a parcel of land that is zoned for distributing warehouses. A company is interested in said property, but even with the zoning correct for its purpose, the company has to seek approval from the zoning board before it can move forward with building on the property.

Probate when no will is left behind

Going to court to administer an estate is pretty unavoidable when no will is left behind by the deceased. Probate may seem like an awful thing to go through, but it does not have to be that bad, especially if one has help. An experienced attorney can assist those in Georgia who need to navigate probate when there is no will in place.

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.

Failing to consider zoning issues could doom your project

As a developer, when you see a good opportunity, you more than likely take advantage of it. At times, the competition for new projects in the Atlanta metro area can be fierce. You may want to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, but doing so could mean missing important steps. Failing to consider the zoning issues that apply to your project could doom it before it even gets off the ground.

What to know about eminent domain in Georgia

Eminent domain is a complicated concept, but it essentially means the government has the power to take your home if it deems it necessary for public use. If you are like many Georgia residents, you may not fully comprehend eminent domain and whether you have any rights with regard to it, so it is important to develop an understanding so you can recognize whether you are being taken advantage of.

Noncompete contract disputes, a problem for business owners

Georgia business owners just want to do what they feel is best for their companies. These businesses are their babies. In order to ensure growth, development and product security sometimes employees are asked to sign noncompete agreements. Unfortunately, such agreements are also the cause of numerous contract disputes.

Joint child custody and decision making

Sometimes, when sharing custody of children with an ex-spouse, there are some issues on which both parents may not agree. It happens. Some arguments can be avoided, though, by making sure that the child custody agreement is very detailed. For example, Georgia parents who have certain wishes for medical treatments may include those in the plan in an effort to prevent problems down the line.
