Be Careful What You Text

There is news about a very famous person being potentially blackmailed with sexts that he sent his girlfriend. By sexts, I mean photos of his private parts.

Brad and Angelina Settled Custody

I am sure that Brad and Angelina never read my blogs but they did listen. They have settled all their issues related to their children without a trial. That is so good for them and the kids. I doubt whether the agreement is public, hopefully it is private as it should be. They each had … Continue reading Brad and Angelina Settled Custody

Brad and Angelina and Jackie O.

You would think that money gave you some sense…especially in a divorce. It really does not matter if both work in an office or are movie stars…some people just do not put their children first. There is no good reason that a stranger, a judge appointed to hear your case, should decide the fate and parenting … Continue reading Brad and Angelina and Jackie O.

Unmarried Fathers and Mothers and Child Support

If the father of your baby signed a paternity acknowledgment in the hospital, he is considered the baby’s father. So, now what if he wants to take the baby to the lake and you do not think it is safe? Can he take the baby?
