Gotcha Custody

When families begin to fracture, there is often a period of separation where the family is no longer intact, but there is also no court order regarding child custody, visitation, support, and the like. In other words, no enforceable rules by which the parents will abide by during this period of transition.

The Trial Practice of Taylor Swift

If you've been following the news, you've likely heard about litigation surrounding Taylor Swift, who was being sued for defamation by a radio DJ. Swift alleged that this DJ had grabbed her, under the skirt, in 2013. Not wanting to make a national news story of the situation, Swift had reported the grab to her "people", who notified the DJ's radio station employers, who then fired the DJ. This DJ then alleged that Swift made up allegations that he had grabbed her inappropriately, which resulted in him getting fired and becoming unable to find any employment now. He sued her in federal court for this.

Back to School, Children

It's that time of year again! It's Back to School for our children, only this year without the benefit of a tax free weekend. But that's another story for another day. As a society, we mark the passage of childhood in a number of ways, and the progress from one school grade to the next is near the top of that list. If you are on social media, I have no doubt your newsfeed is filled with pictures of your family and friends' children on their first day of "x" grade. Mine certainly is and it's a sweet departure from some of the other topics I've grown accustomed to (numb to) in my social media. Often the picture is accompanied by a sincere, sweetly written post by the parent about how bittersweet the moment is, how quickly the years are ticking by, how they hope their child has a great year.

Divorce: The Beginning of the End

We consult with thousands of people each year about their lives and their circumstances and the desire to divorce or their revulsion about divorce or their probabilities of divorce. Add to that that I've been practicing family law for 28 years. With that kind of data set, you could probably expect that we've become rather attuned to the signs that suggest a divorce is immanent.
