What to do before filing for divorce?

Georgia residents who are ready to end their marriages may be tempted to pull the trigger as soon as possible. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to get the divorce process over with as quickly as one humanly can, there is benefit to slowing down and making sure one is prepared for it and what is to come -- particularly on a financial level. This week, this column will address some things everyone should consider before filing for divorce.

Charged with DUI but I did not have anything to drink

You never expected this to happen to you. You never get behind the wheel of your car while under the influence of alcohol, yet here you are, trying to figure out how to fight a DUI charge in a Georgia criminal court, stemming from a high Breathalyzer readout. How can this be happening? What can you do about it?

Probate necessary if a will is challenged

When people create their estate plans, they hope that no issues will arise so that their loved ones can quickly close out their estates when the time comes. Unfortunately, problems do often arise and probate cannot be avoided when they do. For instance, if a will is challenged, there is really no way to avoid probate court in Georgia -- the claims behind the challenges must be heard and investigated.

Georgia business: Planning for compliance from day 1

Compliance is big in business. Companies that are not compliant with federal, state and local laws could be in a world of hurt when the issues are discovered. Georgia business owners can help themselves by planning for compliance from day one.

Georgia man facing a number of felony and misdemeanor charges

Police in Georgia recently arrested a man who they say led them on a high-speed chase through the streets of Floyd County. He is facing a number of felony and misdemeanor charges for the incident. As such, how he approaches his case and who he has on his side is going to matter.

Achieving a fair child support order is not always easy

When ending your marriage, you have a lot on your plate -- especially if children are involved. You want to make sure you walk away from the relationship in a position to take care of yourself and your children. The state of Georgia requires that child support be paid to ensure that children's basic needs are met. Now, depending on what side of the fence you are on, you may end up paying or receiving child support, and the amount you get or have to pay could greatly affect your financial situation post-divorce.

Georgia police chief allowed to keep job following DUI charge

Many Georgia residents believe that a drunk driving charge can completely destroy their personal and professional lives. Depending on the details of one specific case, that may be true. However, those only charged with suspicion of DUI or a first-time offense may find the consequences not as severe as they thought.

Business planning for digital security and resilience

The vast majority of business owners in Georgia have websites, in-house networks or computer systems on which they conduct their business. Protecting digital information is a must in order to keep one's company up and running. This is why one might consider business planning for digital security and resilience.

Social media usage can affect your child custody arrangement

Divorce is difficult and stressful without social media messing it up. Unfortunately, many people in Georgia and elsewhere find out the hard way that what they post online can hurt them and their families. For example, social media content can hurt or help one's child custody wishes.

When zoning does not work in your favor

Every plot of land in the state of Georgia has to be zoned for a specific use. If one is interested in a piece of property that is not zoned for what he or she wants to do with it, it does not mean one's plan is dead in the water. When zoning does not work in one's favor, it is possible to seek a zoning change, but how?
