If you're considering a divorce, it's never too early to prepare

If you're considering divorce, there are some steps that must be taken before you consult with an attorney or file any documents.

And this tax season, as you go through your financial paperwork to prepare for tax filing, do yourself a favor and start gathering the information you'd need if you decide to divorce. You'll be saving yourself time down the road but also some emotional stress since the focus here is on taxes and not your marriage.

3 ways to reduce your chances of getting hurt in a car crash

Driving wherever you want in your car – even across the country at the drop of a hat – is enormously convenient. But with this convenience comes the danger of getting hurt or killed in a catastrophic vehicle collision. For this reason, you need to make an effort to stay as safe as possible.

Here are three things that could prevent you from getting hurt in a collision:

The do's and don'ts for a gray divorce with adult children

Divorce can happen to any one of any age, though we often think of younger people when the subject comes up. However, one type known as "gray divorce" is becoming more common as the population ages. This is the term for people aged 50 and older who decide to divorce.

Gray divorce frequently involves adult children. Most people might think that since adult children aren't in need of financial child support and they can determine how and when to visit each parent without a custody agreement that divorce would affect them minimally. However, if you are a child whose parents divorced after you became an adult, you likely know that that isn't true. Experts have guidance for those who are part of a gray divorce.

How to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder after a car crash

The broken arm, cuts and bruises you suffered when your car was hit by a distracted driver a few months ago have healed. If only the same could be said about your state of mind.

Things just haven't been the same for you, and you finally know why. A mental health professional has diagnosed you with post-traumatic stress disorder – commonly known as PTSD – as a result of the accident.

Advantages, disadvantages of a kinship adoption in Georgia

In Georgia and around the United States, adoptions occur every day with the hopes of giving a child a safe, secure home and creating a family. They involve children from a variety of situations, such as those from a young mother who wants her child to have a better life than the one she can provide, those from a foreign country, or those who are adopted by a stepparent.

Sometimes, there's a "kinship adoption," which means a relative is adopting a child already in the family. Those circumstances are a bit different and might require special handling to navigate family relationships.

Georgia man sentenced after 7 prior DUI convictions

A Georgia man recently was sentenced to 15 years in prison for a 2017 crash that left four members of a family injured. His blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the crash was .29 percent, which is more than three times the legal limit in the state.

The man, 48, also was sentenced to 15 years of probation. A resident of Athens, he was found guilty after a four-day trial of four counts of serious injury by motor vehicle, as well as one count of driving without a license and another count of failure to maintain lane.

Holiday season was deadly on Georgia roads

The recent holiday travel period was deadly on Georgia roads this year. In all, 26 people were killed in crashes that occurred between 6 p.m. on Dec. 21 and 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 26. The Georgia Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported that the total number of deaths was 11 more than in 2017.

At least 330 more people were injured.

Did you survive a Georgia car accident?

If you were recently involved in a motor vehicle collision on a Georgia roadway, you may have already re-lived the events that unfolded a hundred times in your mind. Many people who have suffered in similar situations say they recall the strangest details, such as different smells or colors, or other scenes that somehow etched themselves into their minds just before or after the impact of a crash.

If you suffered injury, you might still be working your way through a long, arduous recovery, which no doubt has included multiple medical visits at a hospital or your doctor's office. Even moderate injuries can have lasting negative effects and may require ongoing assistance to help you get your life back on track. If driver negligence was a causal factor in your collision, you may also be dealing with a lot of legal issues.

Here's why — and how — to modify a parenting agreement

You and your co-parent have been able to follow your parenting schedule successfully since you divorced months ago, but sometimes, things change. Or maybe things never ran that smoothly.

You might have gotten a job that no longer requires you to travel extensively from one Georgia city to the next, and you can have the kids at home with you every weeknight now. Maybe your ex has moved in with a significant other and you are concerned about the new living arrangement. Or, perhaps the other parent has missed scheduled visits.

Your job could depend on attorney's help after a DUI arrest

When you're pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving and hauled to a Georgia jail, you likely can't ponder all the potential ramifications. Once your thoughts get past how to tell your parents or significant other about your arrest, your thoughts might turn to your job.

And well they should.
