This week, Cordell & Cordell featured an article written by Principal Partner Joe Cordell in the Huffington Post that covered the advancement of the shared-parenting movement so far in 2015.
Nearly 20 states have legislation in the works that would improve the balance of custody and visitation for divorced fathers. Since mothers have traditionally been favored by courts when it comes to custody after a divorce, this is good news as numerous studies have determined children are better off when they share equal time with their parents post-divorce.
Dad’s Divorce posted a new article covering the basics of military divorce, as this situation can provide additional challenges that traditional families will not face.
There are specific rules that cover aspects of jurisdiction, custody, child support, alimony and retirement benefits, so it is important for military members to contact an attorney when they divorce to ensure their rights are protected.
Men’s Divorce published a new video in the Attorney Bites series giving a brief breakdown of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, which are used to divide retirement accounts after divorce.
New Mexico family law attorney Camille Pedrick explained that QDROs should be drafted by an attorney to ensure both spouses receive the appropriate marital share of retirements benefits allocated by the court.
