The status of Matt Lauer’s almost 20-year marriage to wife Annette Roque has been the subject of much speculation since it was confirmed earlier this month that Matt had been fired by NBC News for alleged sexual misconduct in the workplace, and now sources are claiming that the two allegedly only ever stayed married for the sake of their children. According to a new report, amid rumors that the couple could be heading towards divorce after Annette briefly filed for divorce – and then swiftly canceled her firing – back in 2006, the twosome supposedly only stayed together as long [...]

The lawyer for a London police officer charged with sexual assault says his client hasn't been convicted of anything and slammed the complainant and her lawyer for inferring he's a public safety risk. London lawyer Glen Donald said Saturday that Const. Steve Williams, 41, who's facing charges both in London and Waterloo Region, will have his cases decided by a judge -- not the media. “To date, nothing at all has been proven,” Donald told The Free Press. He was responding to a Free Press story based on an interview with the complainant in the London case. She criticized the [...]

Divorce lawyers have welcomed a plan to introduce specialist family courts where judges will focus on separating couples' rows over money. Judicial heads say new "Financial Remedies Courts" will be trialled in London, the West Midlands and South Wales next year. The move has been announced by Sir James Munby, the most senior family court judge in England and Wales. Specialist lawyers say the new courts, where judges will make decisions on only the "financial aspect" of divorce proceedings, are a step in the right direction. "This change will ensure that specialist complex cases are heard by specialist judges, with [...]

Islamic women may feel under pressure to reconcile with their husbands, or find themselves prejudiced in discussions about their finances. The power to grant or deny the woman a divorce lies with the Imam who may have an ongoing relationship with the parties’ families, or with the parties, through their local mosque. However many Islamic religious leaders are starting to denounce the inherent prejudice towards Muslim women. The Islamic Community, unlike the Jewish Community, still operates the separation of the religious and state marriage. Many Imams have not registered their mosques to be able to conduct a civil marriage or [...]

It is perhaps unsurprising to learn that children who grow up in a family where their parents’ relationship is acrimonious are frequently susceptible to significant mental and emotional harm. And it should come as no surprise either that 32% of children whose parents are divorced exhibit a high level of mental health problems of some kind, according to the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS), which tracks the progress of 18,800 children born in the UK in 2000–01. The Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCP) states that in this situation, a child may feel: a sense of loss – separation from a parent [...]

When a couple is going through a divorce, they are typically not on the best of terms. The couple’s relationship is probably at its all time worst—worse than during the end of the marriage. Couples often show their worst selves during a divorce, and that includes what  I call “The unsolicited attack.” Let me explain. Picture this. You are sitting in front of the TV late at night. The kids are in bed and you are finally de-stressing from the day, trying not to think about work, finances, your upcoming court hearing, the fact that you are in this nightmare [...]

As you might expect, divorce law and probate law sometimes intersect. A final divorce decree terminates all rights to inherit from a former spouse. Occasionally, however, divorcing spouses enter into an agreement that continues after one of them dies. The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled in September on such a case. When Carl Williams and Roberta-Diane Perna were married in 1988 (he was 60; she was 42), they signed a prenuptial agreement. This agreement said that if they divorced, Carl would make monthly payments to Roberta-Diane until her death or remarriage. It said nothing about what would happen if Carl [...]

Electronic media: what can I look at when I’m going through my divorce?

by admin

Divorce presents a very foreign world to many when it comes to what they can and can’t look at and use. When someone is married, they may assume they have a right to look at anything their spouse receives and to check into anything their spouse does. While those ground rules may work during a marriage, assuming the same thing to be true during a divorce is fraught with peril. FEDERAL LAW APPLIES Most people going through a divorce would never imagine that a federal law designed to catch criminals who secretively snoop on others and take their data may [...]
