Not all marriages result in a happily ever after... that's why RMB Lawyers say you need to formalise your divorce properly. In the last year alone 119,188 people tied the knot.

Never mind that you might clearly not consent to sex but in the end submit, terrified of what might happen if you were to actively resist. In one recently reported case in the family courts a woman had complained to the court that she was a victim of domestic violence and had been raped. Judge Robin Tolson ruled that because the woman had taken “no physical steps” to stop [...]

(credit: BrAt82 / Adobe Stock) Anguish curdles the atmosphere of the courtroom as the judgment comes down –  that a baby boy is to be adopted. His mother, Angie, who has now lost two children to care proceedings by the age of 20, remonstrates furiously with the judge and then her world-weary social worker, as the jargon is unpicked and reality dawns that she will only have a few scattered hours with her son before saying a permanent goodbye. The boy’s father, Phil, who has a brain injury, and, like Angie, addiction issues, has already stormed out. Near the seat [...]

Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party meets with you both, facilitating conversations to help you settle all issues in your divorce: custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support, property and debt division and taxes.

By mediating from the beginning of the case, preferably before either of you files in court, you avoid the delays, excessive legal bills, and trauma that result from the traditional adversarial court process. Most importantly, you protect your children from the turmoil of [...]

This is definitely not good news for Chey, as Roh is demanding 42.3% of his stake in SK Holdings. The shares she is asking for are worth about $1.2 billion, based on recent trading. If the settlement is approved, she would become the second-biggest shareholder in the company after Chey, much like Mackenzie Bezos and Amazon and her ex-husband Jeff Bezos. Chey has a net worth of $2.9 [...]
