Frozen embryos in the middle of divorce conflict

Virginia couples who are undergoing a divorce or considering one might be interested in the pending results of an ongoing case in California. In that case, a divorcing couple is fighting over who has the rights to the embryos they froze. The case was predicted to close in July, with the judge being allowed 90 days to issue a decision.

Rapper 50 Cent files for Chapter 11

Virginia residents have probably heard about how rapper 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy on July 13. Although there have been many famous entertainers who have had to take this course, his filing under Chapter 11 makes his case somewhat unique. Individuals typically file under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 bankruptcy is generally used by businesses.

Many noncustodial fathers offer in-kind support

Fathers in Virginia may be interested in a new study showing that the popular image of "deadbeat dads" who fail to pay child support may be unearned. According to the study, many fathers who do not pay court-ordered child support offer support in other ways. Census data has revealed that in 2011, an almost equal percentage of noncustodial fathers and noncustodial mothers paid the amount of child support that they were supposed to.

Hollywood splits hold lessons for Virginia spouses

Even those who aren't interested in Hollywood power couples may want to take note of the pending divorce between Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. The couple's recent divorce filing may be impacted by the fact that it occurred slightly more than a decade after their marriage, which may be important under California family law.
