What are grandparents' rights?

They say it takes a village to raise a child, but in today's culture, many families rely on the grandparents to pitch in for childcare when the parents are working. It's become increasingly common for grandparents to be the one to take children to school, pick them up and provide overnight care so the parents can have a break or attend adult-only functions. While most families give little thought to this arrangement when things are going well, a divorce announcement can change everything.

What happens to a shared mortgage during a divorce?

One of the biggest issues involved in the property division aspect of a divorce is who gets the house. In many cases, the couple may have bought the property jointly and have both of their names on the mortgage. Even in situations where only one person is named on the loan, the courts may still treat the house as marital property if it was purchased during the course of the marriage and treated as a marital home.
