Family law study: the link between marriage age and divorce risk

9449925_S.jpgThere is no shortage of sociological studies these days, and studies about relationships and families seem to be more numerous than others - at least in terms of media coverage. Perhaps this is because they address relatable topics that most of us are interested in.

Don't hide or minimize challenges of family law matters

14491743_S.jpgGoing through a divorce or any dispute involving family legal matters can be intensely personal. People who are dealing with these situations often keep a lot of details private and don't want to talk about certain problems because they may feel embarrassed, confused, guilty or like they have somehow failed.

A cautionary tale about the importance of paternity testing

17549861_S.jpgThere was a time - not so long ago - when asking a child's mother was the only way to "verify" who the father was. In the days before DNA testing, an unknown number of men raised and supported children that were not biologically related to them - some wittingly and others unwittingly.

A reasonable approach to pet custody after divorce

I38447002_S.jpgn previous posts, we have discussed the issue of pet custody after divorce or a breakup (of cohabiting partners). Despite the fact that many Americans consider their dogs and cats to be members of the family, there are few (if any) laws that dictate how custody decisions should be handled. State laws still treat pets as property, which means that if there is a dispute, the spouse who can prove purchase or adoption is usually granted custody.

Divorce can be a valuable tool for learning and personal growth

10412962_S.jpgAlthough divorce is difficult for everyone involved, we each have a choice about how we react to that difficulty. It is easy (and sometimes tempting) to become bitter and jaded after spending years in a bad marriage and then experiencing the pain of divorce. But like many of life's trials and tribulations, divorce can actually change us for the better.

Until debt do us part: Division of marital debt during divorce

6786737_S.jpgIf you're like most Americans, you have debt. Whether there are balances on your credit cards or student/home/auto loans, you likely owe money to some institution. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. America seems to run on credit, which means debt is the norm.
