Before you got married, you may have had a good handle on all of your finances. You knew what your car payment was, how much you paid for rent, utilities, what you spent on food and all of your other living expenses. But after you were married, perhaps you let your family’s financials fall under […]

For many people going through a divorce, dating is the last thing on their mind. But for others, this might seem like the perfect opportunity to shed the past and move on to a new and hopefully brighter future. But is it a good idea to start dating before the ink is dry on your […]

Over the last year or so I have written numerous blogs relating to same-sex marriage: From the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to how the various court rulings around Florida muddied the waters for those same-sex couples who wanted to tie the knot. The tide has finally turned and […]

Oklahoma oil billionaire Harold Hamm has quite the dilemma on his hands – how to keep up with his ex-wife’s financial demands as his net worth shrivels along with oil prices. When an Oklahoma judge initially ordered Hamm to pay his ex-wife Sue Ann Arnall $1 billion in a divorce settlement earlier this year he […]

There are numerous misconceptions when it comes to divorce. Often, situations that could be resolved fairly amicably become highly contested because one of the parties is operating under the mistaken belief that the myth is actually the reality.

All too often after a divorce, parents who have contempt for each other end up dragging their children into their battles with their ex-spouse. Some use the children as pawns and deliberately turn them against the other parent. Even if they have a parenting plan in place that doesn’t always mean they will follow it. […]

Those who favor alimony reform have long suggested that no one should be forced to pay alimony for the rest of their lives, regardless of how long they were married or their financial situation.
