Factors associated with gray divorces

For Georgia couples who have been married for more than 30 years, the growing trend of gray divorces, or divorces that occur within couples who are over the age of 50, could be cause for concern. However, it should be noted that, while there has been an uptick in the number of these divorces, only certain couples may be at risk.

Political disagreements on the rise, splitting couples

Some Georgia residents might know couples who have been fighting more since the last presidential election. According to a survey of 1,000 people conducted by Wakefield Research from April 12 to April 18, 22 percent of people know a couple whose relationship has been affected negatively by the election of President Trump. Nearly one-quarter of people said that they were arguing with their partner more than ever since Trump's election.

The flow of communication with children after a divorce

Georgia residents who have children and are going through a divorce might soon become familiar with virtual visitation. Calls, texts, video chatting and e-mails fall under this category of virtual visitation, and technology allows noncustodial parents to spend time with children even when not physically with them.

Child custody disputes and adopted children

When Georgia parents get divorced and they have children that they had previously adopted as a couple, the situation in terms of child custody and visitation is the same as if the children were theirs biologically. Parents will also fight for custody of adoptive children just as they will for biological children. This means that if the divorce is particularly contentious, parents may want to keep some points in mind that will help them maintain access to their children.
