Modifying a child support order due to disability

When someone becomes disabled, their life may unravel in a myriad of ways. They may lose the ability to pursue various dreams and goals, struggle to handle daily responsibilities that arise, become depressed or even be unable to work. For non-custodial parents who have to pay child support, a disability can be especially devastating, and they may worry about how they will fulfill their obligations in this regard. However, it is critical for parents who owe child support to do everything they can to stay caught up, and this may necessitate the modification of a child support order.

What are the requirements to adopt in Georgia?

If you and your significant other plan to grow your family via adoption in Georgia, you may wish to get started on the adoption process as soon as possible.

By checking state requirements ahead of time and learning more about the state's adoption laws, you can ensure that the entire process goes much more smoothly and ultimately works out in your favor.

Keeping a divorce from ruining future dating opportunities

When couples divorce in Georgia, often, one of the last thoughts on their mind is entering into another long-term relationship like the one they have just ended. In fact, many people put off dating while they work relentlessly to put their lives back together, reorganize their finances and recover from the emotional toll of a failed relationship. 

Understanding how narcissism can destroy relationships

When people in Georgia realize they are living in the depths of a relationship where they are abused by a narcissistic partner, they often wonder how it happened. They may reflect on their initial meeting and how at the beginning of their relationship, they were treated so differently and felt loved and valued. Now, they are dealing with the daily feelings of inadequacy, worthlessness and fear. 

Can you get an annulment?

There are many misunderstandings about an annulment and when you can get one. When you get married in Georgia, you create a legally binding contract. An annulment, according to the Superior Court of Fulton County, voids the legal contract of marriage and makes it as if it never existed. This is a big deal legally speaking. That is why annulments are not common and the court only grants them in very specific situations.

Busting some common myths about prenuptial agreements

Most people don’t exactly think of romance when they think of prenuptial agreements. Instead, they think of signing a stuffy legal document that practically predicts their divorce. This image is not exactly what most newly engaged couples want to imagine.
