Her child was missing. The child's father had suddenly shown up at her mother's with the police, demanding his son. They were still married. There were no orders which gave either one of them superior rights so they had equal rights to the boy. One thing was for sure, the father's rights were superior to the grandmother's. When pressed, the police couldn't do anything about that. They had to demand the boy from the grandmother. They had to turn the boy over to the father.
Last Tuesday, while Americans were casting their votes, India's government declared 86% of its currency illegal. 500 and 1,000 Rupee Notes, worth about $7.36 and $14.72 respectively, were outlawed overnight. The same piece of paper was worth 500 Rupees at 11:59 p.m. and worth zero Rupees at 12:01 a.m.. Indian's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi calls this demonetisation. Critics called it the economic equivalent of shock and awe.
We have only one day left before the election. It looks very much like we will have our first woman president. Some voters are elated about that. Some voters are as angry as perhaps they have ever been in their lives.
What is Fan Service in Family Law, you ask. If you don't speak nerd you've probably never heard the tem1 "fan service". Allow me to elucidate. Fan service is material in anime and manga that (duh) services fans by often providing gratuitous or suggestive sexuality or violence ("Food Wars" or "Elfen Lied"), fli1ting between main characters ("Inuyasha"), or epic fight scenes ("Fairy Tale"). We can see this in Western media via "easter eggs" in comic books or the car chases in the Fast and Furious films or even those grand space craft scenes in Star Wars. Fan service is hyperbolic eye candy that makes us cheer, laugh, blush, or just feel like the author/director/artist is looking out for us and what'll make us happy.
My last blog post was about a spouse "spying" on the other, using recording techniques and hacking software. I think that the 1nain theme of that blog post was to emphasize the fact that just because s01nething seems like a good idea, doesn't mean it's a good idea. I 1nyself love clients who are involved and proactive, however, some evidence just isn't admissible. Where evidence comes from and how you got it just might make that evidence inadmissible in court, meaning that the judge will never hear it. Fmihe1more, violating Georgia's wiretapping laws could land you in jail!
A prenuptial agreement is a contract that two people enter into prior to marriage that defines their respective rights in the event that the marriage does not work out and the parties divorce. A postnuptial agreement is essentially the same contract that is entered into after marriage.
