Does Working Long Hours Affect a Father's Custody Chances?

When facing a divorce, concerns over custody are daunting. For fathers who have worked long hours to support their family, the prospect of losing their child is especially dismaying. When the court reviews a parent for custody it considers many factors contributing to the overall well being of the child. 

How and why a prenup can be invalidated

Validating prenuptial and postnupital agreements might seem like an odd concept to some people because they been told a myth about these contracts: that they can't be changed or legally challenged.

There has been a divorce phenomenon that has shown no signs of slowing down in recent years. Dubbed "gray divorce," the phenomenon relates to the staggering rise in divorce rates for people over the age of 50.

Alimony recordkeeping: a necessary habit during and after divorce

Spouses aren't going to agree on everything, and this is especially true both during and after the spouses have filed for divorce. This can lead to litigation once the divorce is complete, consuming time and adding stress to your already time-scarce and too-stressful life. So how can you protect yourself from some of this litigation?
