Facebooking your split: social media evidence in divorce court

Did you know that more than 80 percent of U.S. divorce cases involve evidence gleaned from Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other social media outlets? That’s according to a survey of members of American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, a national organization of divorce and family law attorneys.

Dwyane Wade's ex goes public with property, alimony complaints

Generally speaking, celebrity and other high-asset divorce cases aren’t all that different from those of ordinary people, except that there are often complex financial issues that must be considered during the division of assets and debts. In the cases of some celebrities, however, another difference can arise: the possibility that public interest in the case could affect its outcome.

Sometimes even the wealthiest don't pay their child support

Often enough, a sudden job loss or economic downturn can make it hard for people to pay their child support. When the reason someone is failing to pay child support is a substantial change in circumstances, he or she should seek a child support modification as soon as possible so the problem doesn’t continue to build.

Is gender bias keeping men from seeking appropriate alimony?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, only 3 percent of men receive alimony after divorce, even though 37 percent of married women earn more than their husbands. Under Massachusetts family law and the laws of most states, gender is not to be considered as a factor when determining whether alimony is appropriate, and presumably men and women are in similar positions when divorcing higher-earning partners. So what explains such a substantial difference between alimony awards to men versus women?

Moving forward after your divorce has been finalized

When your divorce papers are signed and filed with the courts, the finality of this life event may inspire a host of emotions. You may feel an understandable sadness, an understandable relief or a combination of these two broad emotional states. However, simply because your divorce has been finalized does not mean that you are completely done with the divorce process. Healing and moving forward in a healthy way is truly the final step for anyone navigating the end of a marriage.
