Guardianship and conservatorship are very similar in that they give one party the power over another party's affairs when he or she is not able to. Guardianship means that a person, called a guardian, has the power to make decisions about someone's personal life, such as housing, medical care or even that person's day to day activities such as what food they eat. On the other hand, for a conservatorship, a person, called a conservator, has the power over another's financial affairs, such as investments and bills. For both conservatorship and guardianship, a person who needs a conservator or guardian has to be physically or mentally incapacitated and not be able to take care of their own affairs.

In the State of Georgia, if you want to end your marriage, you must file a complaint for divorce in the Superior Court. After a court grants your divorce and issues a Final Judgment and Decree of Divorce, you are legally able to remarry. It is always advisable to speak with a lawyer before filing any action with the court. This divorce is no exception to that rule. There are often more issues involved in a divorce than you might realize if you fail to get legal advice.
Dissolution of a marriage can be a very complicated process. If documents are not completed, signed, notarized and filed as prescribed by law, the divorce pleadings are not in compliance with the law, a judge cannot grant your request for divorce, and may dismiss your case.

Also called a premarital, a prenuptial agreement is a contract two people enter into before their marriage. Typically, the purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to make clear how the couple will divide property, handle debts, and deal with other financial issues in the event that their marriage ends, but it can also explain the couple's wishes as to how they want to handle these matters throughout their marriage.
State laws are always subject to change through the passage of new legislation, rulings in the higher courts (including federal decisions), ballot initiatives, and other means. We can ensure that your prenuptial agreement meets the current standards and get your new union off on the right foot!
