The role of technology in Mississippi divorce

It is almost impossible to go out to dinner, visit the grocery store or conduct any other daily activity -- regardless of how mundane it may be -- without seeing multiple people using a smartphone or some other wireless device. As technology improves, more people are using these devices to view the daily news, play games, communicate with others and to navigate from one point to another. Perhaps not surprisingly, information from these devices are also playing a larger role in Mississippi -- in divorce court and other issues involving family law.

Judge will decide if man with dementia can divorce

In works of fiction, relationships between stepparents and their stepchildren are often portrayed as filled with misunderstandings and stress. While this is often an exaggeration and many members of blended families in Mississippi actually have a wonderful relationship with one another, one out-of-state family is experiencing a great deal of strife. In fact, a judge must soon determine whether a man with dementia will be able to divorce his wife after a legal dispute initiated by the man's adult children.
