Former spouse seeks modification of divorce settlement

Although Atlanta readers might know that earnings and assets acquired during a marriage are typically considered part of the marital estate, valuation issues can arise in a divorce for business owners, especially when only one spouse handled the financial aspects of the business. Sometimes, a former spouse may even repetition a divorce court to reopen matters, as in today's story.

Online communication may help divorced parents

By simply reading this blog, Georgia readers are providing an example of the role of online media in our everyday lives. Technology has enabled us to communicate faster and in many different ways. However, the quality of those communications may not always be up to par with more traditional methods.

Timing can affect a divorce outcome

For Georgia spouses that are discussing divorce, the approaching Tax Day is a reminder not only of the importance of assembling documentation of finances and other assets, but also of timeliness. Timing, in particular, is an issue which at least one member of a divorcing couple might overlook. Either spouse can initiate a divorce under Georgia law, and there may be a financial incentive for filing first.

Memories in the family home might stall divorce talks

Real estate can be a stumbling block for many divorcing Atlanta couples. For some, a house may represent a joint creative effort, the culmination of years of planning and saving. With so much work invested in a home, such individuals may be reluctant to part with it.
