PTSD and divorce

We have all heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a psychological condition that occurs after the mind has suffered a great trauma. We associate it with soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, police, fire and construction workers from the World Trade Center site and survivors of mass shootings like Aurora and Newtown. And divorce?

Florida law and grandparent rights to visitation

After a divorce, a sometimes overlooked consequence is the impact of the visitation and parenting plan arrangements will have on the grandparents of the couple. Child custody plans may meticulously map out all of the contact between the parents and the children, who gets which holidays and when vacations may occur, but may overlook the grandparent's relationship.

Pregnancy, marriage and presumptions of paternity

The pregnancy of Kim Kardashian has garnered much attention, given her status of being famous for being famous and his celebrity within the music business. With all of the gossip, one issue is of legal interest. When a married couple has a child, the husband is presumed to be the father in many states. Since Kim is still legally married to Kris Humphries, the Brooklyn Nets basketball player, in some jurisdictions, Kris could be presumed to be the father.

Sperm donors and responsibility for child support

A lesbian couple wanted to give birth to a child. As a same-sex couple, their doctor would not help with artificial insemination. They resorted to soliciting a sperm donor on Craigslist. They found a donor, who somewhat naively agreed. He did sign a contract that stated he would not be responsible for child support.

Facebook profiles and divorce

Facebook and divorce has become a hot topic, as social media becomes more a part of our everyday life. And often that's the problem. Behavior, such as posting recent events in your life practically in real-time, along with pictures, becomes more and more an almost unconscious act.
