Visitation rights are enforceable

When a Georgia couple with children begins experiencing marital difficulties, it is not unusual to have conversations about staying together for the sake of the kids. Even after divorce, however, the couple will soon realize that divorced parents of children will be tied together forever, most particularly when the kids are minors. No matter what the nature of the relationship between the exes is, one parent cannot deny the other visitation for frivolous or other non-serious reasons.

Tips for requesting a change in custody court dates

Divorce, and the custody issues that come with it, can be stressful for parents in Georgia, and fitting court dates for custody hearing around work and other obligations can be even more difficult.

Sharing child custody of an infant

When Georgia parents decide to end their marriage, they may face a challenging time adapting to a parenting plan and a visitation schedule. This can be difficult with kids of any age, even when they are old enough to express their own preferences and desires.

Caring for a baby has its rewards and its challenges as well as unique concerns that come with moving a baby from place to place.

Staying in control of finances during a split

Georgia residents considering the divorce process will need to stay on top of their finances as they prepare for life post-divorce.

Buying out a family home during a divorce

One option that many Georgia couples consider when getting a divorce is to sell the family home and use it as part of the divorce settlement.

When a couple decides to do that, they need to calculate the house buyout.

Divorce could lead to credit score damage

Divorce presents several emotional and financial issues. However, many soon-to-be exes in Georgia may overlook the potential impact on their credit scores. Most married couples have joint accounts and joint debts, like shared credit cards, loans and mortgages.
