Tips for avoiding costly decisions during a divorce

When Georgia couples choose to end their marriages, they most likely understand that doing so will alter their financial lives. A divorce will require numerous decisions regarding the division of marital assets. Financial advisers recommend that people seek out clear information about their potential tax liabilities after distributing retirement funds as well as whether or not they can actually afford to keep a family home on a single income.

Occupational choice and divorce

When couples in Georgia get married, they generally anticipate staying together forever. However, circumstances and people change over time. In some cases, a once happy couple may find themselves having difficulties that prove impossible to resolve. Some occupational choices can exacerbate the chance of divorce, according to a recent study.

Consistent rules in parents' homes may help children

Georgia couples who decide to get divorced and who have children may have multiple issues that they need to resolve. In addition to trying to figure out how to divide their property and other assets, the parents will need to determine how child custody and parenting time will be allocated. They may also need to determine support issues. In addition to all of these things, it is important for them to try to make certain that their children will be protected.

Shared parenting benefits moms, dads and kids

When Georgia parents of young children go through a divorce, the court often gives primary physical custody to the mother. While many mothers often request it, they may quickly learn that not only is it taxing to have to raise the children completely on their own, they now are relying on child support to pay for expenses. Getting back into the workforce can be extremely difficult if not impossible, especially if the children are still young.
