Coping with a divorce is never easy and the difficulties are only magnified when there are children involved. For residents in Georgia and elsewhere, knowing some appropriate ways to be a divorcee and a parent at the same time can help ease the stress of the situation. While children may remind a parent of their ex spouse, it can be very detrimental to their growth and healing as well as the parent's if they were to lean a little too much on the children for support. Knowing how to talk with them about what is happening and where to draw the line could help someone who is overwhelmed by the whole process.

All too often, couples across the country, including in Georgia, come to find that dividing insurance plans and straightening them out generally can be just as complicated as the settlement process as a whole.

Postnuptial Agreements and Peace of Mind
