Illness in wife could lead to divorce

Georgia residents might be interested to learn about a study examining the relationship between divorce and illness. Researchers at Iowa State University determined that couples with a seriously ill wife were more likely to get a divorce than couples with a seriously ill husband. However, no information was available about whether it was the husband or the wife who usually initiated the divorce.

Factors involved in grandparent custody

Some grandparents in Georgia might be interested in obtaining custody of their grandchildren. This depends on the specific situation and, in some cases, the grandchild's preference. However, if the child's parents challenge the request, the courts may consider their right to custody as superior to that of the grandparents.

Artworks and art supplies may be divided during a divorce

Georgia residents who are artists may be surprised to learn that any pieces they have, whether in storage, hanging on a wall or on consignment in a gallery, are considered marital property and are eligible for property division during a divorce. Additionally, any tools they used to create their art may also fall into this category, similar to the way that copyrights are also considered to be joint property held by both individuals.

Lower divorce rates among medical professionals, study shows

Georgia doctors, dentists, pharmacists and others working in the health care field may have lower divorce rates than the general public despite the stresses of the profession. This was the conclusion of a study that was recently published, and it will likely surprise many people who thought otherwise.
