QUESTION: I‘m going through a very messy divorce that gets worse by the day. I’m not proud of it but I had an affair which ended up being the final nail in the coffin for our already dead 15-year marriage. We have two kids together and have decided to do 50/50 custody. The biggest problems we’re having are over money – I’m from a much wealthier family than him and my parents gave us the deposit for our first house and also gave us lump sums of cash to tide us over when I was on maternity leave. Apart from when I was on maternity leave, we’ve always earned similar amounts and put

Uzbek domestic abuse victims feel judged, trapped despite new law

TASHKENT (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A week after they exchanged vows, Nigora’s husband started beating her. Three years after leaving him, she still gets blamed for the break-up – even the Uzbek justice system thinks she should give the marriage another try.

A law passed last year criminalised domestic violence in Uzbekistan, but women’s campaigners say protecting victims could take time in a country where abused women are often urged to stick it out or find a solution within the family.

“Everyone has been judging me. My neighbours and relatives say I made a mistake by leaving. They say the first 10 years of marriage are usually like this and called me impatient,” said Nigora, 28, whose name has been changed to protect her identity.

She went against the advice of relatives and friends and left her husband after 18 months – her dreams of being a

Google ordered to disclose emails in Russia oligarch’s divorce

According to Bloomberg, Tatiana Akhmedova alleges that her former husband transferred assets to their son, Temur, to avoid paying a London court’s divorce judgment that she says remains “almost entirely unsatisfied.”

The London court earlier awarded 450 million pounds ($601 million) to the oligarch’s ex-wife, most of which Tatiana Akhmedova claims remains unpaid due to an alleged fraudulent transfer of assets.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Virginia M. DeMarchi said that she would enforce the London court’s ruling allowing Tatiana Akhmedova to obtain her son’s emails from Google.

The London case was brought to San Jose, where the closest federal court to

Being abused won’t get you a divorce in Israel’s rabbinic court | Rachel Stomel

This story is about one woman, but it is also about every woman.

A few months ago, Nitzan Caspi-Shilony, an attorney at the Center for Women’s Justice, stood in a rabbinic courtroom alongside a woman who had been trying to divorce her husband for the past six years. Armed with piles of documentation, Caspi-Shilony told the dayanim — the panel of three rabbinic court judges presiding over the divorce proceedings — of the terror the woman faced in the constant shadow of her husband’s physical and emotional abuse. She showed them proof that the woman had lived in a domestic violence shelter, supported by years’ worth of documents from social services demonstrating the severity of their case. Now, rehabilitated and ready to put this nightmare behind her, all the woman wanted was to be legally divorced from the man who had made her life a living hell.

H. Dennis Beaver: Remember the kids in divorce | Columnists

Children have long memories. When they discover the real reason that they only saw Dad once in a while was because Mom set up roadblocks to visitation, guess who gets the blame? Mom and her lawyer.

When they discover that Dad didn’t forget their birthday and that his Christmas presents never made it under the tree, it is Dad who they will seek, as Mom becomes part of their past.

This past Thanksgiving holiday, just as I was locking up the officer early on Wednesday, a couple – brother and sister in their early 20’s – came by the office and asked if I had a minute.

“You probably don’t remember us, but you handled our father’s divorce about 10 years ago. We were about 12 or 13 at the time,” said the woman. “We both vividly remember that Mom didn’t want us to spend much time with our father,
