No More New Year's Resolutions!

So here we are at January again. It's hard to believe that another year has gone by and that it is 2016. January. A time for fresh starts. A time to assess where we've been and reassess where we are going. A time to make those dreaded New Year's Resolutions.

That is why certain requirements must be met in most states before divorce proceedings can continue.

Family law covers grandparents' rights to visitation

Family law is an extremely important legal area that affects the lives of millions of Americans in many different ways. Many people are familiar with family law only through the scope of divorce. They see family law as the legal area which governs how assets or child custody or alimony are divided in a divorce. Since not everyone is happy with their custody arrangement or support requirements, they may see family law as an enemy.
