Using property division to enjoy a fresh start after divorce

Leaving a long-term marriage is a challenge. More than likely, you've accumulated a lot of assets and possibly some debt. It's imperative that you take the time to think about how these will be split up because you might find that that they have a major impact on the way your single life begins.

Can you change your custody schedule if your work changes?

Divorce requires you to make many decisions about your life

The process of divorcing means that you have several things to think about. You have to divide property, figure out a plan for the children and work out support agreements. You also need to think about practical matters like where you'll live and how to move forward with your life. Overall, this is probably one of the biggest life changes you'll go through.

Keep the focus on the kids when negotiating child custody terms

Many areas of divorce are challenging to work through, but child custody is one that often brings out the fight in both parents. It is understandable that you think you know what's best for your children, but you must remember that they also have another parent. Because you have to put the needs of the kids first, you likely need to be willing to negotiate the terms of the parenting plan with your ex.

What people should know about life insurance in a divorce

Spouses in Georgia who are negotiating a divorce agreement often fail to appreciate the difficulty and importance of figuring out the right life insurance arrangement.

The financial aspects of divorce

The end of a marriage can be an emotional time for a couple in Georgia. In many cases, soon-to-be exes want to reach an accord on the applicable divorce legal issues by negotiating a settlement agreement.

One of those is the financial ramifications.

How to make a divorce as easy as possible

Divorces in Georgia and throughout the country are often emotional events that can have a lasting impact on people's physical, financial and mental health. However, there are steps that a person might take to help a divorce go as smoothly as possible. Ideally, individuals will be open and honest about what they need as a marriage comes to an end.
