Father fights to bring son home

New York residents may be interested to learn about an international child custody battle that has been going on for the past two years. In 2013, a father in Texas learned that his ex-wife was not returning from Brazil with his son after traveling there for a family wedding. Without the father's knowledge, the mother had enrolled the boy in a new school and been granted full child custody by a Brazilian court.

Division of retirement accounts and divorce

When New York residents are going through a divorce, they should expect that any retirement accounts they have will be divided with their spouses in their property division. The amounts contributed and the increase in value of the accounts during the marriage are in most cases considered to be marital property, even if only one spouse made contributions to the fund.
