Divorce and what to do with the family home

Some people in Georgia who are getting a divorce might want to keep the family home. However, there are a number of factors that should be taken into account. People should consider their income, the value of the house, whether they can refinance the house and if they will be paying or receiving alimony, among other considerations. A person may want to meet with a mortgage specialist to discuss specifics.

High-stress jobs can have an impact on a marriage

At some point during their marriage, Georgia couple may decide that a divorce is inevitable. In some cases, a spouse's career or job could become part of the problem, especially if the work is stressful and has a direct impact on the marriage itself. However, those working in certain career paths are more likely to get a divorce by the time they reach the age of 30.

Divorce myths that are false

Going through a divorce in Georgia can be a complicated process. However, when couples disclose that their marriage is ending, advice from friends and family may become overwhelming. It is important to note that, while this advice is usually well-meaning, it can be inapplicable to a person's case.

Survey results shows more involved fathers

Georgia fathers may be spending more time with their children than in past decades based on a survey by Pew Research Center. The survey found that fathers spent an average of seven hours on child care weekly in 2015. This is almost three times higher than in 1965, but it is still less than half the average amount of time that mothers spend on the same task.

More immigrant families considering guardians for children

Some Georgia families might be concerned about how their children will be affected if their undocumented parents are deported from the country. With a crackdown on immigration happening under the Trump administration, some families are taking steps to ensure that they have appointed relatives or other loved ones as guardians of their children in the event that they are deported.
