Disputes about divorce terms place decisions in hands of judge

The marital settlement agreement, also known as a divorce settlement, formally establishes how a couple in Georgia will divide marital assets. If children are present, then it will describe the custody and support details. Alimony might also be a factor in dissolving marriages that involve spouses with substantially different incomes. Whether the ex-spouses come to terms privately or a judge imposes the terms, the settlement becomes a legally binding court order.

Divorce courts aren't made for revenge

For people in Georgia considering divorce, especially in contentious cases involving infidelity or abuse, it can be tempting to go on the attack against a former spouse in the courtroom. This is especially the case when there are substantial marital assets or child custody issues. However, in many cases, trying to seek righteous victory in divorce court can be more painful than its benefits.

Deciding living arrangements is key in divorce

When Georgia couples decide to separate or end a marriage, making decisions related to living arrangements is one of the first bridges to be crossed. Unfortunately, the timing often coincides with the most turbulent emotional period in the divorce process. Each party must balance individual wants and needs with logistical and financial realities in order to find the right solution.

Divorce can have major impact on taxation

For Georgia couples going through a divorce, financial considerations may be a paramount concern. Ending a marriage can carry with it significant financial consequences, especially in property division and spousal support. A split can have an impact on the financial health of both former spouses at a number of levels. One aspect of divorce which perhaps is considered less frequently is the tax impact.
