Increasingly, state laws are changing to reflect the importance of the relationship between us and our beloved pets. This means that some laws are no longer treating pets solely as property during a divorce, and are allowing funds to be left for Fido or Fluffy in the event of death or incapacitation. The development of pet trusts is a part of the animal rights movement and they allow owners to stipulate what they would like to happen to their pet in the event they are no longer able to take care of them and are not able to communicate these...read more

In Georgia, when a domestic relations action (divorce or family law case) is filed, a “standing order” will be issued by the superior court in which it is filed. In a divorce proceeding, a standing order usually addresses several issues important to the case and safety of the individuals involved. A standing order issued during a divorce proceeding will generally prohibit either of the parents from removing the children from the jurisdiction, harassing/stalking one another, selling or otherwise disposing of/moving marital property, etc. The...read more
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...read more
The automatic stay is a unique and powerful feature of bankruptcy cases and is a major benefit for individuals and businesses filing bankruptcy.

While this legal protection can be very meaningful and important...read more
