Legal dispute over frozen embryos highlights unique divorce case

A California case involving frozen embryos has sparked a debate on child custody issues long after a divorce. According to news sources, a San Francisco, California, judge is prepared to issue a verdict in a follow-on divorce dispute that emerged after the couple's divorce was finalized in April.

A Virginia Man is Charged with Two Counts of Bigamy; Faces up to 10 Years in Prison

In Henrico County, Virginia, a man was arrested for two separate counts of bigamy for marrying two different women before finalizing his divorce from his first wife. According to the article, Frank Ernest Blake, Jr. was simply unaware the divorce from his first wife had never been finalized. He states, "I got papers in the mail saying that we were divorced, but evidently you get two sets of papers. I signed my name and everything on it." While Mr. Blake's admitted ignorance of the legal divorce process might mitigate the circumstances of the first count of bigamy, his explanation for his second is less sympathetic. He and his dutiful third wife, Jessica, stated they didn't believe his second marriage was "real," since it was only two weeks in duration before he and his second wife separated.

In a previous article on our website blog, we discussed how most family law courts in Alameda County will require both parents to attend Child Custody Recommending Counseling Services. These are provided free of charge to both parties, and they are designed primarily to assist parents in working out the specifics of their child custody and visitation rights.
