Want a stronger marriage? Get a prenuptial agreement

Getting engaged and planning a wedding is an exciting period of life for Georgia couples. However, amid picking the perfect venue and sending out invitations, you might be overlooking something very important -- a prenuptial agreement. While some may vilify these documents as being unromantic, they can actually help couples strengthen their relationships.

Both pre- and postnuptial agreements give you the opportunity to openly discuss otherwise sensitive matters with your significant other. This means that you could have a leg up when it comes to dealing with other difficult marital matters.

Settling Cases and Being Awarded For It!

Last night I had the honor of being recognized by The Mediation Center of Coastal Georgia for having the highest settlement rate for domestic relations cases in 2018. 70% of my cases that were mediated at The Mediation Center resulted in settlements. Mediation is mandatory in Chatham County for contested family law cases in all but the rarest circumstances. That's a lot of cases that did not require a trial to resolve. That's a lot of cases that the parties decided to keep control of their future by coming to an agreement.

Unbundled, Flat Fee or Full Service, Which is Better?

Family Law attorneys charge for their services under three, very different billing models: Unbundled, Flat Fee and Full Service. Each offers advantages. Each offers disadvantages. So, which one is better for you?

A New Year; A New You

Happy New Years. Welcome to 2019 and the new you. Often you hear the phrase "New Year, New You." This notion is meant to inspire change and improvement in the new year, to start fresh. The new year can be just that for unwed fathers. Make 2019 the year you change and improve yourself and your family.

She Can't See You Smile

The phone is ringing. It rings so long you are sure it's going to voice mail. At what seems like the last second, she picks up. "Hello." You are beaming from ear to ear, better settled just to hear the sound of her voice. You engage in idle chatter for the next few minutes about your day, the weather, your immediate plans. Then it's time to ring off.

Making the most of your prenuptial agreement

More couples are seeking prenuptial agreements as a way to prepare for marriage. It is not that they anticipate their marriages will end in divorce. They see prenuptial agreements in the same way as wearing a seat belt protects in case of an accident even though you don't expect to have one.

Since it is becoming more common for couples to wait before getting married, many partners enter marriage already secure in a career, possessing assets and owning real estate. They may also have their own businesses and a mountain of debt. If you are in this or a similar situation, you may want to avoid comingling your individual assets with your spouse's or becoming responsible for his or her debt. A prenup can help you meet those goals.

'Tis the Season: Traveling with Children

'Tis the season of many, many holidays and all the adherents of all the different holidays seem to share one tradition, they travel to see family. When that family lives in another city, they travel to another city. When that family lives in another state, they travel to another state. And when that family lives in another country, they travel to another country.

A Whirlwind of Hurt

Imagine finding out that you have been sued in Federal Court. Imagine that the case involves the most important thing in the whole world to you, perhaps even more important than your own life. Now imagine that, at the same time that you find out that there is a case at all, you also learned that your final trial is only one week away. Welcome to our world.
