The dissolution of any marriage can be a very stressful transition on many different levels. From emotional aspects to finances, it sometimes can be a relief when a divorce finally comes to its conclusion. However, when children are involved, it can sometimes unfortunately spiral into a drawn out affair. Such is the case of a child custody situation involving a Georgia parent that recently made headlines.
Alimony is one of the most controversial areas of divorce under Georgia law. Some people are obligated to pay it and resent that fact. Others rely upon it for their survival.
Paternity is the determination of the identity of the father of a child from a legal standpoint. There are multiple methods that can be used to make such a determination and numerous misconceptions that people may have regarding the establishment and significance of paternity.
One of the most difficult parts of a divorce can be handling property division. Especially after a lengthy marriage ends, it is complex to determine which property belongs to which spouse and how assets and money should be divided. The process involves not only identifying marital property but also valuing the property and figuring out how it can be split.
