Prenups for blended families

Georgia residents who are preparing to walk down the aisle for the second or subsequent time should give strong consideration to creating a prenuptial agreement. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, the fact that a remarriage is happening gives proof to the fact that even the most promising marriages may end in divorce. Couples preparing to marry again simply cannot avoid this reality. A prenuptial agreement can help to outline asset division if the new marriage also ends in divorce.

Life insurance and divorce

While a couple is discussing property division and considering how their Georgia divorce will affect their finances, one of the topics they may need to include in that conversation is life insurance. According to Protective.com, a policy may be a marital asset that should be divided, if it has a cash value. If not, a person who already owns a policy may want to change the beneficiary, rather than leaving the benefits to a former spouse.

How age may affect your child’s post-divorce needs

During your child custody case in Georgia, one of the judge’s primary concerns will be making the decisions that are in your child’s best interests. To do this, he or she must consider the state of your child’s emotions, developmental stage and psychological needs. We at the Siemon Law Firm often provide advice to parents who are concerned about how the custody agreement may affect their child’s mental and emotional health.

When your marital property includes mineral rights

Identifying and valuating all the assets you and your spouse have accumulated during your marriage in Georgia may be a complex process involving a variety of professionals. We at The Siemon Law Firm have answered many questions about how the court may approach the division of marital property based on many factors in your marriage, and the strategies that couples have used to reach a fair settlement.

How will divorce affect your business?

The challenges of running a business and those of going through a divorce may magnify each other if you and your spouse share ownership of a company. While ideally, you would have prepared for this contingency when you began the business, or before you entered the marriage, the lack of a prenuptial agreement does not necessarily eliminate all hope for a positive outcome.

Is bird’s nest co-parenting right for you?

When you and your spouse are considering the ways that your divorce in Georgia may impact your child, the transition from one home to two is often a factor. However, according to Psychology Today, some parents who have joint custody may be able to maintain a single family home for their child. This arrangement, known as “bird nesting,” would require you and your spouse to secure a second residence where one of you would stay during the other parent’s custody time with the child.
