Premarital arrangements can save marriages

The divorce rate in Georgia is among the highest in the United States; according to statistics compiled by the Census Bureau, the divorce demographics of the Peach State can be as high as 18.9 percent in cities such as Atlanta. The main reasons for legal separations in Georgia are not different than for the rest of the country: Money and strained communications top the list, and these are issues that could alleviated with prenuptial agreements.

Can you take money out of a joint account during a divorce?

Money can be tight during a divorce. Maybe you or your soon-to-be ex moved out of the marital home, and you are struggling to pay all the bills on your own. Or perhaps you are concerned about setting aside money for an attorney. You could also be worried that your former spouse will try to empty out your joint bank accounts.

How parents may benefit from sharing custody

When Georgia parents divorce, they might share physical custody of their children. This might be by mutual agreement, or it might be a judge's decision following a custody hearing. Either way, parents might find themselves struggling with this new arrangement. However, there may be some advantages to joint custody.

Why a custody agreement could be changed

Divorced parents in Georgia may need to ask for a child custody modification at some point. Generally speaking, the modification is only granted if it is in the best interest of the child to do so. A court will consider the request if the current arrangement puts the child in danger of being abused or neglected. Requests may be more likely to be granted if the danger is immediate.

What happens during a child custody court hearing

Georgia parents who are preparing to participate in a child custody hearing might be curious as to what to expect during the hearing. Their concerns might include how to dress, how to prepare and what will actually happen the day of the court appearance.
