Women and Mothers are faced with many different challenges than the typical mother in a case. Statically, on the national average, approximately sixty-seven percent (67%) or two-thirds (2/3) of all divorces are filed by the wife. While women usually face several challenges in a case that men are not accustomed to – more often than not – the men / fathers in divorce cases are frequently have little warning that a divorce is about to be filed.

There are many theories about why women file divorce more often than men, but it is our belief that women take the marriage more seriously than most men, are more sensitive to actual real problems in the marriage, and therefore by default end up filing more often.

Women also seem to be more in-tune with the issues that a divorce presents and do a lot of planning for divorce as compared to most men. 

Common issues women are most interested in are:

• Temporary Hearings
• Child Support
• Child Custody
• Alimony / Spousal Support
• Equitable Division of Assets
• Equitable Division of Property
• Business and Self Employment Issues
• Rebuilding a Life as a Single Parent

It is not uncommon for a woman filing a divorce to already have moved assets, separated accounts, lined up witnesses and made plans with friends and family to get affidavits to use in court. Women frequently already have a plan in place to get alimony, child support and child custody as soon as possible at a temporary hearing. In addition, women seeking divorce have usually already made a list of assets they want and have given their attorney.

Tips For Settling a Contested Divorce Case

Contested divorce litigation and trial always ends in deeply rooted emotions and bitter feelings by both parties. So in instances when a contested divorce is able to be settled before physically going to court the resulted settlement is more beneficial to all parties involved as bits and pieces of the settlement enable them to obtain specifically what they want from the divorce. However, reaching a settlement for a contested divorce is seldom easy, because let’s face it, if it were easy it would most likely result in an uncontested divorce....

What is Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in a Divorce Case?

Short of litigation, there are ways in which two parties can come to an agreement by using methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR can oftentimes be cheaper and less stressful on families in an already stressful time. In fact, some courts now require an attempt at mediation before they can proceed with litigation. Alternative Dispute Resolution is usually classified into four subcategories: negotiation, mediation, collaborative law, and arbitration. While each of these four methods has their own benefits and features, there are...

Divorce and the Bankruptcy Automatic Stay

The automatic stay is a unique and powerful feature of bankruptcy cases and is a major benefit for individuals and businesses filing bankruptcy.  It is a legal rule that states that as soon as a bankruptcy case is filed, creditors cannot sue, garnish wages, or make any other collection attempts.  It is meant to give the debtor time to reorganize debt and to craft a plan for repayment and comes at a time that is often the pinnacle of a wave of demands that he or she cannot meet. While this legal protection can be very meaningful and important...

When Divorce and Bankruptcy Collide

The Bankruptcy Code provides an exception from the automatic stay in the context of a divorce proceeding, which allows an individual to commence or continue a divorce suit. Generally, there are three things that get sorted out during a divorce proceeding: property division, child custody, and spousal and child support. The automatic stay bankruptcy provides will stop any property division but will not stop the determination of custody or payment of support. Child and spousal support are non-dischargeable debts, meaning that filing for...

Child Custody: What is Supervised Visitation?

If there is a history of abuse in the family, especially toward the child, Georgia courts will most likely grant supervised visitation. The courts usually seek to promote a relationship between the child and both parents, obviously without jeopardizing the child’s wellbeing in any way. Visitation rights in Georgia are awarded when a parent has no custody over the child. The court will set the guidelines for visitation depending on the circumstances and will ensure that they do not infringe in any way on the custodial parent’s rights and...
