Atlanta woman hosts first 'speed divorcing' event

If you have ever been to a speed dating event (or seen one on television), you are probably familiar with the format. Daters sit across from other daters, introduce each other and talk for 10 or 15 minutes, and when the bell rings they move on to the next. At the end of the event, daters tell the coordinators if they want to get to know anyone else further, which potentially leads to additional dates, a relationship, and maybe even marriage.

How a QDRO could affect your divorce and retirement

When you are just starting the divorce process, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer number of unfamiliar terms that you encounter on a daily basis. Collaborative law, mediation, spousal support, equitable division and parenting time are all common (and often-confusing) legal family law phrases, to name a few of many.

Divorce and taxes -- go together during a divorce

Divorce is not what most couples would choose when they are entering into a marriage, but many marriages still end up in divorce. Going through a divorce as a celebrity or famous athlete is even harder because of the publicity that surrounds the break-up. Lindsey Vonn, the Olympic and World Cup champion skier has been in the news not because of her skiing accomplishments, but her divorce announcement. Now over the weekend, the media reported that the Internal Revenue Service filed a tax lien against Vonn and her soon to be ex-husband for failing to pay more than $1.7 million in delinquent federal taxes.

Is your spouse hiding assets during your Georgia divorce?

Going through the process of divorce is confusing enough without throwing in worries and suspicions that your spouse may be hiding assets. Unfortunately, that is a fairly common occurrence in Marietta divorce cases, whether or not the couple has significant assets to divide.

Avoid sabotaging your Atlanta child custody case

When two parents love and want to spend as much time with their children as possible, which is usually the case, a child custody battle can quickly become heated and very emotional. This is why even the most minor issues or infractions can be (and often are) brought as evidence against one parent or the other, and those details may even be the deciding factor in the case.

How to divorce with joint debt

Although the national economy has experienced significant recovery since the end of the recession, residents of Georgia have not experienced such relief, with persistently high rates of unemployment and foreclosure. Even if that were not the case, it would probably be difficult to find a couple in Georgia that has not accrued some sort of debt, whether from credit cards, or from a mortgage, car or student loans.

Mom faces jail for baptizing kids against dad's wishes

A mother is facing possible jail time for contempt of court after she allegedly violated her child custody order. But the violation was not something like knowingly violating the parenting time schedule or taking the children out of state without their father's knowledge. What could land the mother in jail is something that most parents do without a second thought: baptizing her children.

Changing your car insurance after divorce

A divorce generally has two components: the legal aspect and the logistical aspect. The former entails the often-lengthy legal process of divorce, from filing a complaint in Georgia family court, to meeting with various court-assigned professionals, and finally, to reaching a final divorce decree.
