Business planning can help when tragedy strikes

Quite a few Georgia residents are small business owners. Many of them have companies that they run with their spouses or other family members. If tragedy strikes and there is no plan in place for how to keep things moving forward, the business may suffer. This is just one reason why business planning is so important.

Building impact and land use

There is a lot of land open and ready for development in Georgia. This does not mean that just anyone can buy the property and use it as they see fit. Building impacts the environment. As such, land use may be restricted in some areas, unless developers can prove that they will be building green. 

Georgia probate: Protecting your children

You and your spouse are young and still have small children at home. Your life is busy, and you don't want to think about what will happen to your children if you and your spouse were to die unexpectedly. The problem with not thinking about it is, instead of your kids going to someone you know and trust in the event such a tragedy does occur, they will likely end up in the state system for a while until everything can be sorted out in Georgia probate court. 

Georgia business litigation: construction liens

Commercial construction is big business in Georgia. Unfortunately, it is not without its issues. When things are not going well at a construction site, and when the property owner is failing to live up to his or her end of the deal, legal steps may need to be taken to deal with the matter. This is where a business litigation attorney may be able to help. 

Business litigation or mediation -- which would be better for me?

Whether you've been in business for a while or are just getting started, at some point you may find yourself facing a legal matter that simply cannot be ignored. Some such matters may require that you go to court to get resolution, but others may not have to be taken to that extreme. So, business litigation or mediation -- which would be better for your Georgia-based business?

What can divorce mediation do for you?

Splitting up with one's spouse is difficult in a number of ways. Many people are not interested in fighting things out in court, but they do have things that they need to work out before they can finalize the divorce process. Georgia residents looking for a better way to get through the dissolution process may find mediation is a great fit. 

How do I establish paternity in Georgia?

If you are a father who was not married to your child’s mother at the time of his or her birth in Georgia, it is possible that you have no legal rights to your child and that your name does not appear as father on his or her birth certificate. In Georgia, only married couples are the presumed parents of their children. Other fathers such as you must establish paternity.

Is business planning really that important?

There are a lot of people in Georgia who are the "flying by the seat of my pants" kind of people. They take things one day at a time and make decisions on the fly. This is all well and good for some things in life. When it comes to the future of one's business, though, it may not be for the best. Business planning really is an important part of owning and operating a successful company.

Georgia child custody: things to know

When separating with one's significant other or going through a divorce, figuring out the best situation for the children can be a bit daunting. It is not always easy for parents to remain objective during such a trying time. At the end of the day, according to Georgia child custody laws, the final custody arrangement has to be one that is deemed to best serve the affected child or children's interests.

What tests do police use to check for suspected DUI?

In Georgia and elsewhere, if a person is suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police will likely ask him or her to take part in what are called field sobriety tests. These tests check a person's physical and cognitive abilities. Failing any of these tests could result in a DUI charge.
