Divorce can affect a parent's taxes

Georgia parents who may be going through a divorce may be more worried about which parent will be awarded child custody than their taxes. However, decisions made regarding how the child's time may be split up can actually affect a parent's taxes once the divorce process is complete. As such, tax incidence should be taken into account during the divorce process.

Divorce battles more frequently include pets

Georgia families may recognize that custody can be a serious issue during a divorce, and pet custody is becoming a common issue for those facing divorce across the country. As battles reach the court room, many are recognizing that a pet is an important part of a family, in some cases filling a gap for a couple without children. This makes the handling of a pet somewhat different than deciding who will receive furnishings and other marital assets.

Can children decide which parent they want to live with?

When divorced or separated parents in Georgia cannot come to an agreement about child custody issues, a judge will have to make those decisions. While considering the different options, a judge might take the wishes of the child into consideration or let the child decide where they would like to live. However, the child must have reached a certain age before they can have an influence on a custody decision.

Steps to filing a divorce in Georgia

A person who is considering divorce often does not know where to start. Georgia law has established a specific procedure by which a divorce may be filed in order to commence the action. By following the necessary steps, a person may successfully file a divorce case and begin the process of negotiating or litigating its terms.
