Divorcing late in life? You're not alone

The longer a couple is married the more complicated a divorce settlement may become. It would stand to reason that couples married for multiple decades would choose to stay together, but divorce statistics say otherwise. More long-time married couples are splitting up than ever before.

New York City child support collections at record high

A multi-pronged program for collecting past-due child support in New York City allows custodial and noncustodial parents to receive help. The Office of Child Support Enforcement collected more than $730 million last year in delinquent child support payments. The amount equals more than $30 million, or nearly 4.5 percent above 2010 support collections of $700 million.

A recent story about a same-sex couple's child custody dispute may be of interest for Brooklyn residents. As more same-sex couples opt for marriage, ultimately some of those relationships will end in divorce. The problem lies in the existing language used to define a married couple by the state, when that marriage is being dissolved and child custody is being disputed.
