Incorporating mediation into divorce proceedings

If you plan to file for divorce in Atlanta, Georgia, there is a high chance your judge will refer your case for mediation at some point. You may also participate in no-cost mediation at the time of scheduled status conferences. Parties may also request mediation on their own without waiting for a referral.

Establishing paternity in Georgia

If you believe you have fathered a child in Georgia, but you or the child's mother are not completely sure the child is biologically yours, you may want to establish paternity to ensure you have certain legal rights to the child. Conversely, if paternity is yet to be established, you may find yourself forced to submit to testing if you are involved in a child support case.

Divorce and Social Security: What you need to know

If you are prepping for divorce, your mind may be pulled in a million different directions. You may be wondering how you will support yourself and how your children may be affected by the transition, and you may also be curious about how any Social Security benefits you may be entitled to could be affected. Your Social Security benefits play an important role in your retirement, so it is essential that anyone going through a divorce understand what the change in marital status may mean as far as repercussions.

Planning ahead during a same-sex divorce

Divorce is not easy for any couple. Marriage is supposed to be a lifelong commitment, and regardless of whether a divorce was your idea or your partner's, ending something you expected to be lifelong is sure to stir up strong emotions and inevitable challenges. Nowadays, many same-sex couples face additional challenges that many male-female couples looking to divorce do not. This is largely because there is very little precedent for same-sex divorce cases in states such as Georgia, where this type of marriage only became legal relatively recently. Inconsistent laws and a lack of prior cases to look back on means many same-sex couples find themselves tied up in lengthy legal battles, which can impact many areas of their lives.

Why same-sex couples should have a prenuptial agreement

They may not be especially romantic, but prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common in American society, and for good reason. While these legally binding agreements can benefit all couples if they divorce by simplifying the process and minimizing infighting, they may be of particular benefit to you if you are part of a same-sex couple, and here is why.
