What to look out for when divorcing an addicted spouse

Marriage can be difficult given the everyday demands of two busy people (i.e. work, children, business maintenance, elder care), but when drug or alcohol addiction complicates the relationship, it is incredibly difficult to keep a marriage together.

How grandparents can protect visitation rights

The old adage "it takes a village to raise a child" was not born in a vacuum. Grandparents, just like aunts, uncles and godparents, can play a vital role in a child's life. However, some grandparents may not be able to spend as much time as they like with their grandchildren.
