In our previous post, our blog discussed how more and more older Americans are now deciding to pursue divorce, a trend that many attribute to everything from greater financial autonomy to a seismic shift in social patterns.
While many of us associate divorce with either young couples -- married too early -- or middle aged couples -- demands of work and family prove too much -- statistics show that this mode of thinking may be outdated.
A divorce trial described by one court filing as "matrimonial litigation of unprecedented scope and complexity" that has been closely monitored by legal experts for nine weeks officially came to a close last Thursday.
Last time, our blog examined why it's so important to consider making a prenuptial agreement part of your wedding day planning. Specifically, we discussed the myriad advantages of engaged couples executing what amounts to a binding legal contract setting forth their rights and expectations regarding the classification/division of property, and/or spousal support in the event of a divorce.
