Although it may sometimes seem that a person's life is on hold during a military deployment, the fact is that life goes on for Gulfport military families. This means that divorce may crop up as an issue for service members and their spouses. Can a service member file a divorce petition while they are on active duty? Can their non-service member spouse? This blog post will address these questions briefly.
Sometimes a child custody dispute can be handled simply and amicably between two Mississippi parents. Other times, however, child custody disputes can drag on for years. The example of one musical ex-couple shows how a child custody dispute can sometimes go on and on and on.
As we enter a new year, we also enter the month with the highest rate of divorce filings. Because spouses seek to enjoy one last holiday season and avoid breaking the holiday spirits of loved ones by sharing the news that their marriage is over, married couples in Mississippi and elsewhere file for divorce once the new year rolls around. While this is a frequent time to file for dissolution during this month, it certainly is never an easy decision to make no matter what month it is.
Leading up, during and following the divorce process, spouses can experience a multitude of disputes and legal issues. This is true if children are involved in the process. Parents are not only fighting over who gets the children when but also the financial support that might go hand-in-hand with the child custody order. Child support can be a hot topic for parents to work through, especially when they do not believe they should pay any support.
