State agency fight for child custody may be winding down

Custody disputes are not always between two parents. Sometimes state agencies take control over a child against the will of a parent or parents. In Georgia and in every other state, complaints of parental abuse are received and processed by child welfare agencies. But these can sometimes be vengeful attacks by noncustodial parents or other disgruntled interests. Child custody is thus sometimes wrongly taken from the parents by a child welfare agency.

Separating emotions from divorce: Advice for Georgia couples

Individuals who have ended their marriage know that it is an emotional time. In fact, emotions can often make divorce more acrimonious, expensive and complicated than it needs to be. Georgia couples may not find it easy to set emotions aside, but divorce is above all a legal transaction. It is important to approach it with a clear head and an open mind.

For Georgia parents, divorce is the time to talk about college

Divorcing couples who have children must work out details of custody and support during their split. However, there is another important issue that many Georgia parents overlook during the divorce proceedings. Sooner or later, their children may want to go to college, and it may be helpful to discuss the financial arrangements for that during the divorce. One or both parents may experience a change in their financial circumstances as time goes on, but laying the groundwork now may make a difference if the issue needs to be renegotiated later.

Divorce for entrepreneurs: End the marriage, not the business

Under normal circumstances, divorce can be a challenging and difficult time for Georgia couples. But what if the spouses co-own and operate a business? A divorce could have a huge impact on the future of their company and their livelihoods. However, if both spouses are interested in continuing business operations, there are ways of working around the divorce to keep the company flourishing.
