Divorce for 'Lov Gov' Eliot Spitzer

Student loan debt and property division during divorce

When most people think about divorce, they think of having to divide assets. In some divorces, it is also necessary to divide significant debts. Just as not all assets are created equally, not all debts are created equally when it comes to a divorce.

Divorce not simple for homosexual couples

Texans who have been monitoring the gay rights movement in the United States might have noticed that the most recent issue is the inability to get a divorce or marry in every state. While federal law has stated that there is no reason homosexual couples can't marry, it is still only recognized on a state-by-state basis, and in some cases, even a judge-by-judge basis. The problem with this is that now, some couples have been married but are unable to get a recognized divorce after they have moved to different states or areas. In addition, when problems like child custody and property division come up, the results aren't always fair.
