We are the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, father and son divorce lawyers located in Augusta, Georgia.  We blog about common issues in Georgia divorces and sometimes also discuss celebrity divorces.

Earlier this year, we wrote about the split between actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.  Now, it appears
that both actors have moved on.  For instance, various news reports indicate that Mr. Pratt is now spending time with Katherine Schwarzenegger.  Celebrities are no different from anyone else. Following a divorce, celebrities must go on with their lives, just like everybody else!

What is your favorite Chris Pratt role? Guardians of the Galaxy? Jurassic World? Parks and Recreation?

DIVORCE AFTER FIFTY: FACTORS TO CONSIDER

[Courthouse photograph from wikipedia]

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we at the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC see divorcing couples at all ages and stages of life.  Have you considered the special issues which confront divorcing couples who are over fifty years old?

Today, I want to discuss just one such issue: potential loss of friendships.  Put more simply, when you get a divorce after fifty, you may face a special challenge in that you may lose some friends who were friends of both of you while you were married.  Those friends may find it difficult to choose between the two of you. Also, many activities work better between couples rather than between a couple and an individual.

But there may be a positive outcome, too.  I suppose you will at least learn who your true friends are! What do you think?

CELEBRITY DIVORCES: ANNA FARIS SELLING HOUSE

This is a divorce-related blog written by the divorce attorneys of the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC, located in Augusta, Georgia. We offer practical information and tips for divorcing parties to discuss with their own divorce lawyers.

We also sometimes discuss some of the issues which arise in celebrity divorces. For example, we have already discussed the recent divorce between actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.

Today, various news outlets have also reported that Ms. Faris is now selling a house she owns in the Hollywood Hills for $2.5 million. Celebrities, like others going through a divorce, often must deal with both splitting and disposing of both real and personal property. In other words, equitable property divisions are a common issue in Georgia divorces.

We don't know the facts and circumstances surrounding Ms. Faris' property sale. But we do know that property division is an important matter for you to discuss with your own divorce attorney.

PARENTING CLASSES IN AUGUSTA DIVORCES

[Photo from wikipedia]

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we are often asked by divorcing parties
about the available options when taking the parenting seminar which our Augusta
Judicial Circuit judges require in divorce cases. The Augusta, GA bar association
website has a complete listing of the approved places where you can complete this
requirement.

One important point to remember is that, generally, you may NOT simply take an online
parenting class to meet this requirement in Augusta!

The other important point is that you should discuss this and all other divorce-related
questions with your own Augusta divorce attorney!
