Low contribution to the marital pool prompts new division deal

"Your results may vary." Readers will recognize that as a disclaimer on just about every ad they see for any weight-loss program. Divorce is not about weight loss, but in some cases, analogies might exist. Dissolving a marriage can be difficult and emotionally challenging. And under Georgia's model of equitable distribution, views on what is fair can differ. Some could feel they've lost more than others.

Discussing future property division issues today

Brides.com tends to focus on the finery and fun of weddings, with articles about rings, dresses, honeymoons and more. But sometimes the site addresses topics that are not always easy for couples to talk over as they prepare for their big day.

On equitable distribution, and what it means for Georgia divorcees

Property division can be a contentious issue in any divorce. When two spouses have to find a way to split up the value of a home, or a car, or prized furniture and other assets, it can be a very difficult task -- especially with something as stressful as a divorce hanging over the entire discussion.

What should I know about a home appraisal in a divorce?

If you are part of one of the many homeowning couples in Georgia who is facing an impending divorce, it will be important for you to know about your options related to your home. First you will be tasked with deciding whether or not to keep your home or to sell it. Either way, you will likely need to have it appraised as part of your overall property division settlement. Forbes explains that all home appraisals may not be created equal.

Trends in millennial divorces

For Georgia residents of any age or generation, a divorce is generally an emotionally and a financially life-changing event. However, the way in which people in different age groups approach divorce may well be different. The millennial generation is finally coming to an age where some have not just gotten married but are actually now getting divorced.

Gray divorce hard on retirement plans

Over the past couple of decades, Georgia and the rest of America have seen more divorces among people aged 50 and above. Termed gray divorce, this experience can be financially devastating for some people. The impact of a divorce at the age of 50 or 60 can be more severe from a financial perspective than a divorce at the age of 30 or even 40. If you are among the people considering a divorce later in life, it is important that you evaluate your situation carefully.

Protection for spouses in second marriages

If you are one of the many people in Georgia who is contemplating a remarriage or may who has already gotten married for a second or subsequent time, you know just how hard the pain of a divorce can be. You also know how real the financial impact can be and this time you may have more on the line, especially if you have children from you prior marriage. Just what should you do to protect yourself, your children and your new spouse?

Social media and divorce

Georgia residents going through a divorce or perhaps contemplating a divorce may look for various sources of information on their spouses. One of these sources today is social media. That's right. Social media is not just for fun anymore, especially when a marriage sours.

Benefits of a postnup for stay-at-home parents

Georgia couples who make the choice after they are married to have one spouse stay home to raise the kids too often overlook the importance of a postnuptial agreement. Choosing to raise one's children is indeed a positive thing but it can come with a price - literally.

Prenup mistakes to avoid

More and more couples in Georgia today are taking advantage of the benefits that a prenuptial agreement can offer. However, when entering into any legal contract it is important to ensure that the contract is valid if and when it is ever needed. A prenuptial agreement is a contract like any other yet many people fall prey to some common errors that leave them without the protection they thought they had if they ever get divorced.
