The start of a new school year can be stressful for parents and children alike. It can be even more stressful after a divorce. Therefore, it may be a good idea to spend the last few days of summer vacation to create goals for students both inside and outside the classroom. While grades are important, Georgia parents should also help their children focus on developing as people.
Divorcing couples in Georgia may experience some anxiety regarding their finances. They should begin by examining their expenses, liabilities, income and assets.
Getting a divorce in Georgia is more complicated than most people realize. After spending years with a spouse, a divorcee might not be sure what their financial future has in store for them. That is why it is so important to figure out one's finances as soon as separating becomes a real possibility. Splitting assets is much easier when both parties know all of their rights and responsibilities.
It’s difficult for most people to work through divorce with their ex-spouse. Whether the separation has you feeling resentful, heart-broken, relieved or all of the above, it’s easy for these emotions to permeate negotiations — oftentimes making agreements more difficult to reach.
Over the past several years, divorce has been on the rise for people over 50. Some older couples in Georgia who get a divorce may have complicated finances that make the process of property division complex. For example, more and more people are investing in annuities, but these can present problems when it is necessary to divide them in a divorce. They all have different types of rules and can lose value when split, so some couples opt instead for one person to keep the annuity and the other person to take a different asset.
