Father enacts decades-old law, sees daughter returned

If one couple's case is the norm, then adoptive and divorcing parents in Ohio could see the best interests for a child being dismissed. According to federal law, Native American parents have a right to their children that comes before any other child custody concerns. This is due to the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, a law that was invoked one year ago by the biological father of a 3-year-old girl.

Study finds that marriages struggle when women earn more

Some social norms may continue to be seen in Ohio and other states if the recent findings of a new study are true. The paper in which the study's findings are published examined many heterosexual couples and their economic viability. While many believe that men and women have equal rights, the two genders continue to have different pay grades. The researchers noted this and decided to create a whole study on the effects of this norm, which is often seen in marriages that turn into high-asset divorces.

Divorce addressed by family-friendly show

Families in Ohio have been watching Sesame Street for years. The show has helped teach generations of kids how to read, count and write. In addition, the puppets over at Sesame Street have also tackled some serious concepts such as pregnancy, adoption, race, natural disasters and death. Now, the show is going to be addressing divorce.

Woman divorces because she's gay, worries about custody

A woman and her husband are choosing to divorce because she has decided to no longer hide the fact that she is a lesbian. She already has a female partner and plans to stay in a monogamous relationship with her. The issue is that the woman and her husband have children together. He wants sole custody of the children.

Be prepared for divorce, even if you don't expect it

Divorce can catch any person off-guard. That is why it pays to be prepared. If you have a considerable amount of wealth as an individual or as a couple and a spouse surprises you with a divorce, your unpreparedness may result in a loss in individual value. While finances are not the only part of a divorce, they are a very important part, especially in high-asset divorces. This is due to the ability of finances to determine the level of stress you have that is related to money concerns.
