High asset divorce for Walmart heiress plagued by scandal

Walmart heiress Page Laurie Dubbert is divorcing her husband of nearly six years, and she is apparently taking an aggressive approach to the breakup. The high asset divorce comes after the man reportedly made off with thousands of dollars that came from a retail operation the pair ran together. However, like many New York couples, the pair is working through the divorce with the help of a prenuptial agreement. The woman has already agreed to pay the man spousal support thanks to that document.

Experts say there are a few key phrases that can help parents stay in-tune with their kids' needs during this potentially tumultuous time.

Miller, child's mother continue father's custody rights battle

Although the Winter Olympics have been over for weeks, the frosty child custody dispute between skier Bode Miller and his child's mother has continued in a New York family court. The athlete has been locked in a contentious fathers' rights battle for months, as he fights for equal access to his 13-month-old son. The most recent news in the case shows that Miller and his ex-lover were unable to reach an accord during a hearing in late March, which means that the child will remain with his mother until the next hearing in the matter.
