Prenuptial agreements becoming more popular

More and more people in Georgia and around the country are deciding to enter into prenuptial agreements before they marry, with the agreements especially becoming more popular with millennials. There are several reasons why these agreements may be a good idea for those who are getting married, but they must be written in a manner that is legally valid in order to stand up in court.

Georgians who are wanting to divorce but who have been married for less than 10 years may want to wait until they've hit the decade mark before filing.

Since both parents usually want to be with their child or children during the Christmas season, there is often a conflict of interest between the two parents. It is a well known fact that family courts have a heavier caseload around the holiday season.
