Evidence from Facebook plays a role in marriage and divorce

A few weeks ago we talked about the impact social media -- such as Facebook and Twitter -- can have on a divorce. Things that you post on social media sites, especially harsh, critical or revealing information, can really come back to bite you during divorce proceedings.

Take precautionary steps with your finances during divorce

There are so many things that need to be taken into account during a divorce, and most these things are financial in nature. From property to assets to even the debt you and your spouse have accrued over the years, the delicate process of dividing financial items in a divorce should be done with an experienced attorney by your side.

Before entering a prenuptial agreement, consider these issues

It used to be that prenuptial agreements had an ugly connotation that would make a potentially married couple reconsider their relationship. Now, many Minnesota couples enter into a prenuptial agreement and, if they get into a divorce, most are glad they did. Since a prenuptial agreement is an alteration to the basic laws pertaining to marriage and divorce, it allows a splitting couple to make their own choices and personalize how their marital assets are decided.

Splitting college costs a key step when finalizing divorce

Many Minneapolis and Lakeville parents are preparing to send their child off to college and with a major institution like the University of Minnesota just around the corner, the expense of a college education can be as scary as it is exciting to see your son or daughter start a new journey. Some of these parents may be going through a divorce, placing added financial stress on both the splitting spouses and their child.

Social media: an evidence aggregator in divorce cases

Last month we talked about the story of a woman who discovered her estranged (but not legally divorced) husband had another wife. She discovered this act of bigamy because Facebook suggested that she become friends with the second wife. The effects social media can have on marriage can ultimately lead to divorce - and even then, social media could be central to the divorce process.

Divorce official for Heidi Klum and Seal, custody battle likely

Two prominent reasons you hear while a couple goes through divorce are "irreconcilable differences" and "they just grew apart." Heidi Klum cited the former in her divorce paperwork last week, bringing her divorce from musician Seal -- who referenced the latter in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres -- full circle after a three-month separation.

Minnesotans continue to wait on new child custody law

A few months ago we talked about a potential change to Minnesota's child custody laws, one that would give divorced parents joint custody of their child. Current child custody laws in Minnesota dictate that each parent is entitled to a minimum of 25% custody time after a divorce, with the leftover 50% being determined by a judge if the parents cannot come to an agreement.

Federal proposal could bring custody relief to deployed soldiers

Active military members have plenty on their mind, especially those that are serving their country on overseas deployment. We have talked about divorce rates for military members before on this blog, and the numbers are high. One of the last things a military member needs to be thinking about is potential family litigation while they are deployed, such as child custody arrangements.
