The reality of business partnership disputes

Business partnerships can open endless doors, as they often help boost ideas and mold them into fruition. Yet most relationships -- including those of businesses -- face obstacles every now and then. Prior friendships, conflicting plans and expectations can sometimes get in the way of an otherwise thriving startup, but there are certain red flags to watch out for when combining creative efforts with another business in Georgia.

Georgia homestead laws are silver lining to foreclosure

Losing a job in Georgia is a stressful event that continues to affect a person long after the deed is done. Unfortunately, one of the results may be another harrowing event, loss of a home, which can follow rapidly on the heels of the job loss. Having that happen may leave a couple or family in fear of what the future holds. One silver lining that can provide comfort in the face of a home foreclosure is the state’s homestead laws.

What should a business owner include in an employee handbook?

The contents of your employee handbook can be a key component to your start-up business’ success.

The team at the Roberts Law Firm often helps people understand the pros and cons of these choices so they can make informed decisions and get their business started on the right foot.

Looking for the light at the end of the foreclosure tunnel

It is no secret that budgeting can be difficult; throw the holidays into the mix, and that task can easily become a nightmare. Yet unemployment -- especially after the holiday season -- can top these pitfalls in its ability to affect both daily pursuits and overall quality of life. It is natural for any Georgia worker who has lost a job to fear the worst in regards to mortgage payments, but there are often many ways to look at this difficult conundrum.
