How to Get a Solo Mortgage After You Divorce

Thumbnail image for shutterstock_96106313.jpgThe negative effects of divorce on the family are well-documented.

Given our online lives, social media prenups seem unsurprising

22695959_S.jpgSaying that it "is something we're seeing raised more," one family law attorney and mediator is likely echoing what many other attorneys are also saying, namely, that they are being asked increasingly more often about relationship-based contracts focusing on the Internet and social media.
