Oasis singer's child support deal ends

New York fans of the band Oasis may be interested in a case involving the former frontman for the band. The singer, Liam Gallagher, and his former lover, freelance journalist Liza Ghorbani, had a child support arrangement for their 18-month-old daughter, Gemma. Gemma is one of four children fathered by Gallagher, whose children all have different mothers. Gallagher and Ghorbani met when she wrote a profile of him for the New York Times. At the time, Gallagher was still married.

New York residents who follow the art and political scenes probably know that American lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta separated and fought about how their property and art collection would be divided.

Older New York couples face more challenges during divorces

With divorce on the rise among couples age 50 or older, New York residents who are contemplating ending a marriage should be aware that dividing marital assets will be more complicated for them than younger couples. That's because older couples likely have been accumulating joint assets for decades, rather than a few years for younger couples.
