Getting married: What you need to know

Whether you are tying the knot for the first time or considering remarriage, it's important to understand that there are certain requirements that must be met before you can be legally wed. One of the most important requirements is that you are legally free to be married, which means you are not currently legally married to anyone else. If you've been married before, even if it was just for a short time and the marriage was annulled, it's a good idea to check with a family law attorney to make sure that everything was done properly to avoid problems later on.

How do I prepare for a child support hearing or trial?

While divorce and child custody matters may make up the majority of family law cases, there are times when child support trials must also be held. It's common for trials involving child support to come about after one party has requested a review or modification of the current child support order. If the other party objects to the child support enforcement agency's findings, a hearing is usually the next step.

Property division: Splitting the debts

Property division is on the mind of nearly every person getting or contemplating a divorce. Even over the course of a relatively short marriage, there are often quite a few possessions that have been accumulated, and it can be very difficult to think about your things being divided by the court. While many people focus on the high-value assets, such as cars or the house, or items with particular sentimental meaning, it's also important to understand that debt is also part of the property division process.

Alleged domestic violence incident brings arrest

Police responded to a disturbance call last month in a Miami neighborhood. They were alerted by a woman who was checking on her friend's well-being after not hearing from her for a couple of days.There they allegedly discovered a case of domestic abuse involving a 41-year-old man and his former girlfriend, 36.

Premarital agreements: Because you never know what might happen

Our last couple of blog posts have dealt with some serious marital issues, including infidelity. A theme of those posts, and of many news reports about the same subjects, is that marital issues can seemingly come out of nowhere. What seem like happily married people one day can become divorce-seeking individuals the next after a scandal such as the Ashley Madison situation. Even a pastor who seems to have his or her marriage life together can fall prey to situations involving infidelity and his or her own mistakes.

How an affair can affect your kids

Infidelity is never a good thing, and the mere accusation can rock the strongest of marriages. When you find out that your spouse has been cheating on you, it's normal to be emotional and feel like your life has been turned upside down. However, many couples are so caught up in how an affair has harmed their relationship, they don't realize the devastating effects infidelity can also have on children. If infidelity was part of your reason to divorce or why you're considering it, it's important to be aware of how this may affect your kids.
