I can't bear living a half-life for the rest of my life and I have [...]

AS a family lawyer, I see many married couples that combine their business and personal lives by setting up a business together, or by bringing their spouse into their existing business. Sharing the fruits can be mutually beneficial, but what happens to the business if the marriage ends? Sometimes the couple can continue to run the business together, even after divorce. More commonly however, the end of the marriage signals the end of the working relationship, in which case important decisions need to be made regarding the future of the business. For example, who stays and who goes? If one [...]

A theme of the Beckwith case was alcohol consumption, whether celebrating on an [...]

In divorce proceedings, one of the very first things the domestic relations court must do is determine what assets are marital property subject to division, and what assets are separate property. A court must divide both marital and separate property equitably. Marital property is presumed to include all property acquired during the marriage or those assets produced or earned as a result of the parties’ mutual efforts during the marriage.  Generally, for property division purposes, property acquired before the marriage is considered separate property. However, this generalized rule does not automatically mean that just because one spouse holds title to [...]
