A teamwork approach to divorce

It seems that practically every subject imaginable is searchable on the Internet. Granted, the authorship of the information may not always be authoritative. In some cases, the postings may even be anonymous. Nevertheless, many readers turn to the Internet as a first step in gaining more exposure to an issue or topic. At a minimum, an Internet search might provide context, offering buzzwords or common themes associated with a subject.

Missing child support payments could result in jail time

Purchase of a home now seen as a step towards marriage

Divorcing same-sex couples can run into problems
