How Divorce Affects Your Georgia Estate Plan

by The Anderson Firm, LLC
 
Many spouses do not know just how much the other spouse has permeated their lives until someone files for divorce. In a divorce, both spouses must disclose seemingly every detail of their lives to the other’s attorney. With so much going on, plenty of spouses forget about updating their wills and estate plans.

An important note here is that, once someone files for divorce in Georgia, a temporary standing order prevents either spouse from selling assets or spending a large amount of money. This sometimes restricts certain actions related to estate planning. So, you should refrain from making drastic changes to your wills and trusts after you or your spouse files the Petition for Divorce. READ MORE

Dr. Dre can't catch a break in the courtroom.

Just 2 months after a judge ordered Dre to pay his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $300,000 per month in temporary spousal support, he is now ordered to pay an additional $1.5 million in attorney's fees.

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the judge presiding over Dre's divorce case has issued a temporary order covering Nicole's attorney's fees.

Besides the massive spousal support, the judge ordered Dre to pay an extra $1.55 million in attorney fees - for a total of over $4 million.

The legendary rapper has already shelled out a payment of $2 million to her lawyers. And in the past year, he made two separate payments of $500,000 each.

Dr. Dre objected to the excessive attorney's fees - which now total more than $4 million, but the judge dismissed his complaints.

The judge said Nicole's attorneys can charge exorbitant hourly rates because they are "certified family law specialists" with "significant years of experience".

"Ms. Samantha F. Spector and Lisa Helfend Meyer, certified family law specialists, have significant years of experience in family law and have extensive practical experience in complex family law matters. Considering the level of the case's complexity, and the issues involved, an attorney of their level and skill is reasonably necessary; and therefore, the various hourly rates of the primary and secondary attorneys participating in this litigation are reasonable and justifiable."

Dr. Dre is being ordered to pay all of Nicole's lawyer's fees based on the "disparity" in their assets and income.

According to the court order, Nicole has assets totaling "approximately 39 million dollars" while Dr. Dre has a net worth of approximately "243 million dollars."

The judge also ordered the estranged couple to settle out of court for permanent spousal support before the case goes to trial. Otherwise, their divorce case could end up being the most expensive in history.

Either way, it's a lose-lose situation for Dr. Dre.

Prenuptial Agreements — What Can They Actually Do in Georgia?

As with so many other things in society, millennials are rewriting the rules. With a more equitable workforce (in terms of gender), marrying later in life, and a desire to hold onto hard-earned assets, prenuptial agreements are as popular as ever. It seems fiancés are discovering that prenuptial agreements are useful for more than just the ultra-wealthy.

Functions of Prenuptial Agreements in Georgia

The most widely understood utility of prenuptial agreements is the ability for independently wealthy spouses to keep many of their assets after a divorce. Separate property, which is property owned by spouses before marriage, could become marital property through commingling...

Georgia Parents: Not Getting Child Support Like You Should?

by The Anderson Firm, LLC

The concept is simple: both parents should financially contribute, from each's ability, to a child's needs. In many circumstances — after a divorce, or separation of unmarried parents — a legal order needs to be established that ensures the financial security of a particular child or children.

Just because an order for child support is in place does not mean the paying parent will automatically comply. If you are the receiving spouse in a child support order and stop receiving payments from your ex, you have options for getting the money your child needs. Remember: you shouldn’t feel guilty for putting your foot down and demanding payments to which you and your child are legally entitled. Unpaid child support is referred to in the legal system as "child support arrears."

Melinda Gates reportedly sought advice from divorce attorneys due to Bill Gates' relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates' long-suffering wife started consulting with divorce attorneys before the pandemic.

Her concerns about Bill and Epstein's relationship dates back to 2013, according to the Wall Street Journal.

It's interesting that every news outlet is reporting on this story. The same mainstream news outlets looked to Bill for guidance as a de facto expert on experimental vaccines -- even though he doesn't hold a medical license.

The 56-year-old mother-of-three filed for divorce in April, saying their marriage was "irretrievably broken".

The WSJ traced the tensions in their marriage to Bill's relationship with the late financier Jeffrey Epstein who died by hanging in a Manhattan jail cell in August 2019.

The Journal states that Bill and Epstein spent long hours together at his Manhattan townhouse. Gates was also a guest on Epstein's private plane, dubbed the "Lolita Express" by the news media because it ferried underage girls to his private island for parties with wealthy men.

Since the news broke of their divorce, Bill Gates has reportedly transferred billions of dollars worth of assets into Melinda's name.

Some observers believe Gates is moving assets into Melinda's name to avoid losing everything in a class action lawsuit.

Former Atlanta Mayor, Kasim Reed, 50, has retained former reality TV star Phaedra Parks to represent him in his divorce from Sarah Elizabeth Langford-Reed.

According to rumormongers, Reed and his wife were separated for a while before they filed for divorce in September.

Reed fathered a daughter with the former 2005 Miss District of Columbia before they tied the knot in 2014. Sarah requests primary custody of their five-year-old daughter, Maria Kristan Reed; child support; an even split of their assets; and for Kasim to pay any debt they accumulated during their marriage, according to court papers obtained by Bossip.

Phaedra, 46, went through a very public divorce of her own after splitting from ex-con Apollo Nida, 40. They share two sons, Ayden and Dylan. Phaedra also represented musician Bobby Brown in the past.
