Divorce issues encompass more than just ending the marriage

When you decide that your marriage is over, you are usually ready to file for a divorce. While you might think that right that second is the best time to file for a divorce, there are sometimes other considerations that you must take into account. We know that you are probably ready to just get things over with so you can start your life anew. We will help you learn about some considerations that might play a part in when and how you divorce your spouse.

Pro-golfer's ex-wife sues his fiancee for alienation of affection

Mississippi is one of a handful of states that still allow people to sue others for "alienation of affection." For a woman in Tennessee, a lawsuit against her ex-husband's fiancee for breaking up her marriage is just one of her current legal battles.

Focus on your needs as you embark on the process of divorce

No matter how much you expect that your marriage is ending, there is often a big emotional upheaval when the time comes to file for divorce. That emotional upheaval is often greater if the divorce was unexpected. Anyone who is going through a divorce should make sure that they take the proper actions to ensure that their emotional health remains intact throughout the divorce.

Tennessee judge refuses to allow straight couple to divorce

While much has been made about same-sex divorce after the Supreme Court made the landmark ruling that same-sex marriage would be legal in all states, it's also having some unanticipated effects on straight couples. One such example occurred in Tennessee just a couple of weeks ago when one judge refused to allow a straight couple to divorce.

Various issues must be considered during the divorce process

Deciding to file for a divorce is an emotional decision. As we discussed last week, women file for divorce more often than men. Oftentimes, the decision to file for a divorce comes only after the couple has tried everything they can to salvage the marriage.
