Evander Holyfield up against the ropes in child support case

Evander Holyfield has weathered his fair share of storms in the boxing ring. However, the former heavyweight champion is now facing a different type of fight. The state of Georgia is claiming that Holyfield owes $372,097 in unpaid child support for his daughter. Until the payments are made, the state is requesting that Holyfield be jailed and have his wages garnished.

Wife's shoe collection becomes center of marital property dispute

Everyone in Marietta has something that is special to them. For some it could be a house, for some a car and, for some women, it could be their shoes. There probably aren't many people in Georgia, however, who can lay claim to such an extensive and expensive shoe collection as a professional poker player's. Though she and her husband have divorced, he is claiming that she hid how expensive the 1,200-pair shoe collection really was and that he is entitled to a portion of this marital property.

What role can obesity and physical health play in child custody?

We have previously talked about how some Georgia family court judges may start looking at weight in making their custody decisions, but the focus had almost always been on the weight of the child. The question that is now being raised is whether a Marietta parent's obesity should be considered when deciding who should have physical custody over the children.

Sometimes divorce is better for children than staying together

It is undeniable that divorce is extremely serious and should only be undertaken after careful consideration and self-reflection. When someone in Atlanta does choose to go through with a divorce, however, it does not mean that he or she is doing something destructive. In many situations, divorce can be healthy for an individual and for his or her children. Though divorce can have an effect on your children, so can staying in a conflict-filled marriage.

'Will and Grace' star Debra Messing to divorce husband

Nearly everyone in Canton, Georgia, has heard of the hit television show "Will and Grace" and its quirky female star, Debra Messing. Though her tenure on "Will and Grace" has ended, her career certainly hasn't. The actress is currently starring in a new television show called "Smash," but it is what is happening off-screen that is generating interest in the famous red-head.

Financial issues are more complex for older divorcing couples

Entering their golden years, an increasing number of older couples in Georgia are facing complex financial issues as they end their marriages. It is well known that approximately half of all marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. The most recent statistics, generated in 2009, indicate that 25 percent of divorces are among such older couples, a large increase from 1990, when only 10 percent of all divorces were between baby boomer couples.

Like oil and water, divorce and business don't mix

There are an increasing number of family businesses operating in DeKalb County and across the country. As more and more Georgians enter both business partnerships and marriages together, it is important to protect yourself and your business in case you and your spouse divorce. Working with a family law attorney can help you figure out what you will need to do to ensure that you will not lose your claims to the family business just because of a break up.

Allegations of domestic violence color child custody decision

The people of Kennesaw may remember hearing about a transgender man who had gotten pregnant and gave birth to three children with his wife. For nine years he, his wife and three children lived as a happy family, but he recently announced that he and his wife were filing for divorce. Unlike many child custody cases, this is far from normal.
