Many co-parents reach agreements for summer, vacation, and/or holiday parenting time that are different than their regular parenting time schedule. For example, many clients like to reserve the right to exercise extended summer parenting time for a longer trip or vacation – each parent might get one or two uninterrupted weeks of summer parenting time with each required to present their preferred week(s) by a date certain (usually May 1st). If you have any questions about parenting time in your upcoming divorce, or, trying to modify the terms in your Judgment, please contact us.
Ended up married after a rowdy weekend in Las Vegas? The heat of the moment made you get ahead of yourself? Unfortunately, Las Vegas marriages, by and large, are legally enforceable and recognized, even if you were on vacation. Annulments are available in very specific, precise situations and circumstances (incapacitation or polygamy/being legally unable to marry another person). These are, however, state specific. If you have any questions about extra-jurisdictional marriages or family law matters generally, please contact us and we will be happy to help however we can.
What if you discover that your spouse was gambling extensively during your marriage?

While it is generally understood that typical, routine marital expenses and debts are a part of the marital estate and assumed by both parties (sometimes proportionally based on financial circumstances), arguments can be made for credits or concessions by one party of their spouse is using joint resources for things that not only do not benefit the spouse/couple/family unit, but, are potentially illegal and unacceptable. Should you have any questions on the dissipation of assets in your marriage or divorce, please contact us to discretely discuss in more detail.
