'Gray divorce' and the risk to your retirement savings

25024654_S.jpgAs society changes, so do its family law trends. A lot of research in recent years has analyzed divorce rates among various groups of Americans. Through analysis of demographic data and other sources, an interesting trend has emerged. As of 2010, about one in four divorcees was age 50 or older.

High-asset divorce does not have to be a highly public event

30562070_S.jpgHigh-asset divorce tends to be more complicated than divorce among couples with more modest assets. The complications are due, at least in part, to the logistics of dividing up significant wealth and property. But high-asset divorces also tend to be complicated because they are usually high-profile as well.

Fathers' rights topic: The double standards around child support

21668852_S.jpgConsider the following two scenarios about a former couple who shares child custody. In the first scenario, the child's father earns vastly more money than the mother. As such, he pays thousands of dollars in child support each month. He then petitions the court for a reduction in child support, alleging that the child's mother is basically refusing to find work.

9725694_S.jpgThere seems to be a general consensus among most Americans that the wedding industry has become overgrown and wedding culture is often out of control. At the same time, many reality TV viewers have a morbid fascination with ostentatious weddings and the "bridezillas" who insist on having nothing but the best for their big day.

A closer look at domestic violence and its consequences: Part II

16522847_S.jpgEarlier this week, we began discussing common misconceptions about domestic violence. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this issue is important in family law. It is not always easy to discuss, but silence generally only leads to more violence.

A closer look at domestic violence and its consequences: Part I

4944646_S.jpgOctober is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We recently wrote about the issue of domestic violence as it related to professional football players. The NFL has received significant criticism for failing to properly punish players who have been criminally charged with domestic violence against their wives, girlfriends and children.

Don't let your midlife divorce become a midlife crisis: Part II

27476629_S.jpgEarlier this week, we began a discussion about how divorcing in midlife is different than getting divorced when you are young. Because midlife divorce is unique, it comes with its own unique rules and its own pitfalls. These include being especially careful about how you use social media and making sure to keep your adult children out of the fray as much as possible.
