Assisted reproductive technology & disputes over parental rights

4092207_S.jpgThere's no doubt that medical science has allowed humans to do things once thought impossible. Even if we look only at the field of assisted reproductive technology, recent advancements have made it possible for couples and individuals to have children despite significant biological obstacles.

Literal approach to asset division goes viral in YouTube video

11537657_S.jpgEarlier this week, we wrote about the fact that "fair" can be hard to define in a divorce settlement. Because Missouri is an equitable distribution state, many people think this means that assets will be divided in a 50-50 split, or as close to that as possible. But equitable does not necessarily mean perfectly equal.

What exactly does 'fair' mean when it comes to divorce?

20142112_S.jpgFrom the time that we are young children, most of us are concerned with fairness. Kids are quick to point out when they are not being treated fairly or equally compared to a sibling or friend. In many cases, this need to call out unfairness doesn't go away as we get older (but many of us might be less likely to complain if an unfair situation benefits us).

What factors do courts consider in property division?

29307830_S.jpgDifferent states have different approaches when it comes to splitting up property in divorce. As some readers may know, it is standard classify states as using either a community property approach or an equitable division approach. Community property as an approach to property division generally involves dividing marital property equally, though the exact rules vary.

Protecting the whole family's privacy rights during divorce

Thumbnail image for 37367850_S (1).jpgEarlier this week, we wrote about social media, wireless technology and the way that these phenomena are shaping aspects of family law. During a difficult divorce or child custody dispute, most people want to maintain a sense of privacy, and evidence taken from one's smartphone or Facebook account can feel like a serious violation of that privacy.

Smartphones and apps providing more evidence in family law cases

20602655_S.jpgThe landscape of family law has changed significantly over the years, especially in the past decade. We have previously noted that social media sites like Facebook are increasingly being used as sources of evidence in divorce and child custody disputes, which is one of the many reasons why it's important to be careful about what you put online.
