Jordan takes on second marriage

Michael Jordan is perhaps the most recognizable player in the NBA, even 10 years after he retired from basketball. He is also well known for his contentious divorce with former wife Juanita, which eventually led to an estimated $180 million settlement (which was a record at the time).

Jane Seymour's divorce may be a good example

Our readers have likely seen many posts advocating for Ohio divorcing couples to take an amicable approach to their breakup. The research on how combative divorces affect children, as well as studies on mental health during tumultuous breaks should inspire people to treat each other with respect as they move on with life.

Millennials have their own take on love and marriage

Just like many traditions and milestones in life, millennials are doing things differently compared to past generations. Their take on job searches (and job expectations) are different. They communicate differently, opting to have text message conversations as opposed to calling on the phone.

Can deadbeat parents be put in jail?

There supposedly is no such thing as a debtors' prison. The failure to pay debts generally will not get a person put in jail. However, with every rule there is an exception. When a parent fails to pay child support payments, Ohio law allows the state to charge a non-paying parent with a crime.

Kardashian / Humphries saga nearing an end

It's been three months since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced their pregnancy. We noted in a prior post that the upcoming baby creates an intriguing legal scenario considering that Kardashian is still married to Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humprhies. Their divorce case is (surprisingly) still going. Both parties are at odds over how the marriage should be ended.

Are working fathers at a disadvantage in divorce?

Many divorcing fathers may feel as if they are at a significant disadvantage in Ohio child custody proceedings simply because of their gender. They fear that the court tries to hold parents to their traditional roles (i.e. the mother being the homemaker and caretaker of children, the father being the breadwinner and secondary guardian).

Co-parenting issues that courts avoid

Just like parenting is not easy for married people in Ohio, co-parenting for divorced (and separated) couples is no picnic. Even if it was, it would be a picnic fraught with ants, raccoons and stormy weather. Suffice it to say, there is always something about one of the parents, and what they may have (or may have not) done with the kids that infuriates the other parent.

Why to avoid social media during divorce

It goes without saying that divorce is an emotional time. The same can also be said about child custody disputes. Given how people can express their frustrations to thousands of people at the push of a button, it may seem like it's a no-brainer to avoid social media when a person is upset.

Can grandparents get parenting time during divorce?

When people consider the old adage "it takes a village to raise a child" they undoubtedly had grandparents in mind. In many cases, they are drivers, cooks, and maids in the same way that parents are.
