Considerations in resolving child tax credit disputes

One of the most trying things for newly divorced parents to deal with is filing their tax returns. For many, this will be the first time they deal with their own returns in quite some time, and they may not be familiar with all the benefits and deductions they can take advantage of. One of the most contentious issues they must deal with is how the Child Tax Credit is allocated (i.e. who gets to claim the credit on their tax returns.)

Love may not keep The Captain and Tennille together

The 70’s pop duo “The Captain and Tennille” made love songs that talked about love lasting forever despite a person’s faults. Unlike many pop stars, Cathryn Tennille and Daryl Dragon (aka “The Captain”) practiced what they preached, as they married in 1975, the same year that their hit song “Love Will Keep Us Together” won a Grammy for record of the year.

New Jersey 'Housewives' star could claim innocent spouse defense

The former reality power couple, Joe and Teresa Guidice, has been out of the spotlight for quite some time. The criminal trial for the myriad of fraud accusations is supposed to take place this year. For the uninitiated, the couple starred on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” a reality show that followed several affluent women and their dealings with children, family and most importantly…each other.

Basic questions in modification cases

Although Father’s Day is many months away, there are a number of unmarried fathers who are not in their children’s lives or do not see them on a regular basis. They may be estranged from the children’s mother or they may be incarcerated. Whatever the reason, fathers may not have the type of access to kids that will ensure a strong relationship with them.

Resolutions that divorcing parents should follow

The first week of the year is commonly about focusing on new beginnings. People decide (or at least have an idea) of what they want to do differently in the coming year. For divorcing parents, there may be plenty of things on their “do differently list” for 2014, whether it is to lose weight, stop smoking or get a better paying job.

Will there be a 'Kimye' prenup?

In our first post of 2014, we congratulated all of our readers who made (and accepted) marriage proposals during the holiday season. We also provided some helpful tips about prenup etiquette that may help soon-to-be spouses avoid the anxiety of talking about (and creating) such an agreement.

What you always wanted to know about prenuptial agreements

The New Year brings about a great deal of promise and excitement. Many believe that they have a clean slate and unlimited opportunities to make this year the best ever. These notions could be the reasons behind the many marriage proposals that come about as the calendar turns to 2014.
