Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” are being accused of a “sham” divorce announcement in order to protect themselves against a lawsuit for allegedly embezzling funds meant for families of the victims of the fatal 2018 Lion Air plane crash.

A month after Jayne, 49, announced she and attorney Girardi, 81, would be separating after a 21-year marriage, the two were accused of announcing their divorce as a “sham attempt to fraudulently protect Tom’s and Erika’s money from those that seek to collect on debts owed by Tom and his law firm,” according to legal documents obtained by USA TODAY filed Wednesday by Chicago law firm Edelson PC.

United Kingdom touts vaccine approval as victory for Brexit despite US and European role

Britain’s approval of a coronavirus vaccine has occasioned a diplomatic dispute over which country deserves the most credit for the breakthrough.

“To everyone involved in this breakthrough: thank you,” UK business secretary Alok Sharma tweeted. “In years to come, we will remember this moment as the day the UK led humanity’s charge against this disease.”

That triumphant note, delivered against the backdrop of a messy divorce from the European Union (the terms of which remain under negotiation), grated on continental ears. A chorus of diplomats and expert analysts responded by emphasizing that the companies that produced the vaccine aren’t even British.

“I really don’t think this is a national story,” German Ambassador to the United Kingdom Andreas Michaelis tweeted Wednesday. “In spite of the German company BioNTech having made a crucial contribution[,] this is European and transatlantic.”

“The vaccine was designed in Germany by Turkish immigrants, developed by a U.S.

Ask Ellie: Daughter-in-law feels threatened by new woman in the family

Advice columnist EllieDear Ellie: I’m a man, 56. My wife died of cancer seven years ago. It took me three years to put my grief in a private place. Six months later I met a woman, now 50, who’s the second great love of my life. Her ex-husband suddenly left with a woman almost half his age, five years ago. She says that shock felt similar to a death. She hasn’t seen him since their uncontested divorce. They had no children.

Soon after we met through a mutual friend, we both knew the connection was special. I asked her to move in with me two years ago.

The pandemic and initial lockdown brought us even closer. By the time we could “open up” to having my family (married son, his wife, two grandsons) join us in person, we were a solid couple with some new ways based on her influence: We’ve become

Attorneys noticing more divorce filings caused by pandemic

The pandemic has put a strain on everyone this year, and for some staying home, financial trouble or losing work has put a strain on relationships.

Some lawyers say they’re seeing more divorce filing this year because of it.

“I have been doing family law for about 25 years,” said Debbie Self, a partner at Self Morey & Associates. “I would tell you that we have had an unusual surge in divorces both last year in the late fall and again this year in the late fall.”

Family attorney Debbie Self says there’s usually a lull in filings around the holidays.

She says some people wait until they’re over, and others might wait to get their tax returns in the spring to file for divorce.

“The one thing that I’ve heard probably more consistently than anything is that a person might have been in a marriage that they were willing

What Can Family Law Learn from Psychology?

Using his unique background in psychology, David – who has written a best-selling book called “Moving On: Redesigning Your Emotional, Financial, and Social Life After Divorce” – shares the difference taking into account mental health can make in family law cases.

 

  1. How do psychology and divorce go hand-in-hand?

In Family Law, which includes divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, and division of property, my clients are generally good people going through what is the hardest portions of their lives. They are not only losing their spouse, but they are losing their defined understanding of “family:” they may be losing time with their children, they are losing some of their assets, and they are losing some of their income by which they maintained their standard of living. Those are a lot of changes to get used to during a relatively short period of time.  And when people go through changes, they
