Equal time-sharing custody order can be stressful for children

Joint custody with equal time sharing between two parents is an initial presumption for a child custody order in many states and in the minds of many family law judges.

The system is generally handled better in Georgia and some other states where the courts are not saddled with an initial presumption that joint custody and equal sharing is the first preference.

The economic status of a baseball team during the owner's divorce has been a sore point of contention in some cases in recent years. Luckily, the issue has not come up in Georgia, but the latest incident is the current divorce case of the Astros owner Jim Crane and his wife, Franci Neely. Although news reports have raised concerns that an announced settlement will impact the team, Crane and team spokespersons have adamantly denied any connection between the two.

A Georgia resident initiating or contemplating a divorce may want to keep in mind that it is a time to keep one's emotions in check. There are too many important decisions during a divorce, and they require a cool head. One author of self-help books for women going through a high net worth divorce recommends that his readers not get carried away in a sea of emotions just because it's now the season of valentines and romance.

For those in Georgia who recognize these as traits present within their own marriages, it may be time to assess the health of the relationships.
