New York celebrity couple embroiled in complex divorce

The divorce and custody battle between entrepreneur and media personality Bethenny Frankel and businessman Jason Hoppy shows no sign of abating.

Domestic Asset Protection Trust could bolster your prenup

There are few conversations that feel more awkward than discussing a prenup with your future spouse. These legal documents can prevent future heartache, but too few couples choose to protect their rights through the use of a prenuptial agreement. Even more disconcerting, though, is the fact that a prenup may not be entirely airtight -- even if the document is considered legitimate, you could spend thousands of dollars proving this fact.

International travel for youngsters can seem like a positive choice for divorced parents; why not take advantage of an opportunity for your kids to become more worldly?

If you had a difficult divorce with your ex -- and if that person has continued to violate child custody requirements -- he or she could have nefarious intentions.

Many people in New York and elsewhere oppose surrogacy

In the past, surrogacy is something that has been done without clear laws and regulations in place. Recently, legislation has been created to make sure that commercial surrogacy is governed by the rule of law. For some states, like New York, this could remove the illegality of surrogacy under which the state exists right now, making it an option for parents who are interested.
