Unconventional conception does not prevent visitation, court says

For some people in Mississippi, becoming pregnant is relatively easy. For others, it is something they must try for over an extended period of time. One out-of-state man and woman were fortunate enough to become parents, despite an unconventional method of conception. Unfortunately, the couple quarreled over the father's role in the child's life, ultimately leading to a court granting the man visitation.

Facebook to be used in divorce case

The U.S. Constitution guarantees a variety of different rights. One of these rights deals with the right to due process. In a divorce case, this ensures that a defendant in Mississippi is properly notified of impending litigation and given an appropriate amount of time to respond. One out-of-state judge recently had to confront a case in which a woman claims she is unable to locate her estranged husband in order to serve him divorce papers. In a novel ruling, the judge allowed the woman to use social media to serve her husband, while ensuring that her husband's rights are not violated.

Prenuptial agreement discussions can help in the event of divorce

There are many important decisions to make in life. People must decide if and where to go to college, which career path to follow and who to marry. Making one decision often affects several others. For example, once two people decide to marry, they must make choices regarding children and where to live. Some people with legal experience recommend that it is also important for couples in Mississippi to discuss prenuptial agreements in the event their relationships end in divorce.
