Child custody for fathers

Many people may assume that mothers are always more likely to get child custody than fathers, but this is not the case. Legally, a father is equally entitled to custody. There are a few factors a Georgia judge may take into account when considering a child custody case.

The effects of divorce on retirement savings

People in Georgia who get a divorce when they are close to retirement age might be worried about its effect on their retirement, but even younger people may find their retirement savings endangered by divorce. In most divorces, a spouse is entitled to at least a portion of retirement savings.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and wife reach divorce agreement

Some Georgia residents may be aware that the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, is getting a divorce. The richest person in the world, Bezos is giving his wife 4 percent of the company stock. Their current value at around $35 billion makes her the world's third-richest woman. If the settlement goes through as planned, it will be the largest one in history.

How child custody has changed in recent decades

While family law matters were not supposed to resemble a battle of the sexes, sometimes it felt that way in the past when mothers were usually granted sole physical custody of their children after a divorce. After 1980, courts started recognizing joint custody as a better option for children. Courts in Georgia and other states are now more likely to believe joint physical custody should be awarded unless there is a valid reason preventing it.

Dixie Chicks singer petitions court to validate prenup

Georgia residents who follow country music may be aware that Natalia Maines, who is best known for being a member of the Grammy Award-winning Dixie Chicks, and her actor husband Adrian Pasdar have decided to divorce after 17 years of marriage. Maines filed the papers citing irreconcilable differences in 2017. Media reports reveal that the couple signed a prenuptial agreement before they walked down the aisle in 2000, but any hopes Maines may have had for a speedy and amicable resolution have been dashed as Pasdar is contesting the document.
