What can you learn about hidden assets from a 1040 form?

Dissolving your marriage in Georgia is a legal matter that may be as stressful financially as ending the relationship has been on your emotions. As you and your spouse go through the process of discovery, you will both need to provide all of your financial documents so the assets and liabilities can be divided equitably. If you have some concerns that your spouse is not providing a full account of these, you may want to hire a financial professional, but there is some information that should be easily accessible to you.

Parallel parenting: Is it right for you?

It may be that you and your child’s other parent are having trouble leaving behind the acrimony of your divorce in Georgia. If so, the resulting conflict could make co-parenting your child difficult. Any custody issues that require communication could become occasions for disputes. In these situations, the American Bar Association often recommends parallel parenting.

Who gets the credit card rewards in the divorce?

The process of dividing everything up during a divorce may seem complex if you and your spouse have a variety of assets such as tangible items, real estate and retirement accounts. Hiding financial information is illegal, and failing to disclose something could lead to conflict and litigation. When attempting to identify all shared property, Nasdaq suggests that you may also need to list your credit card rewards as marital assets.

Including special days in the visitation schedule

One of the essential tasks that you and your child’s other parent must undertake during a divorce in Georgia is creating an effective co-parenting plan. Visitation is based on what is in your child’s best interests, which includes developing and maintaining a healthy parent-child relationship with both parents. At the Siemon Law Firm, we often provide guidance about how the schedule may be tailored to meet the needs of the situation, including how certain occasions other than primary holidays may be best divided.

Safeguard the validity of your prenuptial agreement

If you have ever signed a contract of any kind in Georgia, you know that the terms are typically legally binding. Of course, you probably went over the wording of the document with a fine-tooth comb – and maybe also hired a lawyer to do the same – before you signed on the dotted line. At The Siemon Law Firm, we recognize that prenuptial agreements are just like any other legal contract, so we regularly advise couples on the importance of having an airtight document.

Will I receive alimony after my divorce?

Financial stability is typically one of the most common and palpable fears people have when they are divorcing. Going from a single household supported by one or two incomes to separate households being supported by that same amount can present some unavoidable anxiety.
