Yes, there may be a way to ensure no one ever sees that text or photo

In today's digital society, people use a variety of technologies to assist and communicate in their everyday lives. Perhaps no other device has revolutionized how people communicate more than the cellphone. Today’s cellphones are essentially mini computers that allow a user to talk, text, take and share photos, complete transactions and pay bills. Given the multiple purposes cellphones serve, it's no surprise their contents are frequently targeted in a variety of legal cases.

Everyone loses in a high-conflict child custody battle

With all of the memories, shared possessions and strong emotions; going through the divorce process can be difficult. When minor-aged children are involved, the divorce process can quickly escalate and result in both parents saying and doing things they will later regret. While all parents love their children and can become overly protective at times, when it comes to sorting out child custody and visitation matters, taking an obstinate stance only serves to harm a child and make future co-parenting that much more difficult.

Collaborative law: providing an alternative to a courtroom divorce

We've all seen movies or heard stories of ugly, combative and costly divorces. While every divorce comes with a certain level of divisiveness as spouses attempt to negotiate and come to an agreement about important matters related to child custody, assets and personal belongings; that doesn't mean a couple needs to turn to a judge to make these decisions.

Divorce survival tips

With so many feelings, memories and shared friends; it's no wonder that the divorce process has often been equated to an emotional roller coaster. Add in very important concerns like children and finances and it's no wonder some divorces end up becoming contentious and drawn-out courtroom battles. Given the many stresses associated with the divorce process, how can an individual who is going through a divorce remain sane?

Why a prenuptial agreement may be deemed invalid

Prior to tying the knot, many individuals who own property or have a considerable amount of assets request that a betrothed sign a prenuptial agreement. While it may not be considered the most romantic of pre-marital gestures, in the case a marriage doesn't end up being "until death do us part," a prenuptial agreement helps ensure individuals retain ownership of assets they brought to a marriage. Or do they?

Gray divorcees focus should be on retirement funding

Within the past two decades, the divorce rate among couples over the age of 50 has significantly increased. Many of these divorces take place after decades of marriage, making the emotional and financial aspects of so-called gray divorces more life-altering and complex than divorces involving younger couples. Unlike their younger counterparts, many gray divorcees don't have to contend with child custody matters involving minor-age children. Instead, for most, the focus shifts to financial matters surrounding how to fund retirement.

Alimony restrictions in prenuptial agreements can be challenged

Divorcing individuals are faced with many challenges and forced to make many decisions. Aside from child custody matters, perhaps the most anxiety-producing and contentious divorce topic revolves around the division of marital assets. While California divorce laws dictate that marital assets be split equally between spouses, exactly what constitutes as being fair or equal is often disputed by both sides.
