If you recently went through a very bad breakup, and your ex is spreading rumors around about you, there is a chance you might be able to sue him or her for defamation. Defamation involves written or spoken things that are false and harmful to a person's reputation. If your ex has done this to you, filing a lawsuit against him or her might be a good way to legally resolve the problem.
If you are a parent who is in the process of going through a divorce, there are a lot of decisions that have to be made. Two of the most important decisions that will affect your children are their custody, and their educational opportunities once the divorce is final. Too many times both of these decisions are left up to a judge to decide. The educational environment, as well as the custody decisions that you may have already made may be in your child's best interest, but if you allow the court to decide, the court just may rule against you.
