Domestic Relations, Barry B. Mcgough, Andrea G. Alpern Dec 1992

Domestic Relations, Barry B. Mcgough, Andrea G. Alpern

Mercer Law Review

The Georgia Supreme Court has decided that a medical school education, a medical license, and contingent fee contracts are not marital property subject to equitable division. The court also declared that a judgment modifying alimony is effective no earlier than the date of the judgment and that an award of joint legal custody does not preclude an award of child support. This Article is divided into three sections. Section I covers cases dealing with child support and visitation; Section II covers cases dealing with settlement agreements, alimony, and equitable division; and Section III deals with contempt.

Religion And Child Custody, Carl E. Schneider Jun 1992

Religion And Child Custody, Carl E. Schneider

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

In this Essay, I want to reflect on some problems at the intersection of religion, law, and the family. Specifically, I will explore the ways courts may consider a parent's religiously motivated behavior in making decisions about the custody of children. More precisely still, I will ask two questions. First, may a court refuse to award custody because of a parent's religiously motivated behavior in a dispute between a natural mother and a natural father? Second, when should a court agree to resolve a dispute between divorced parents over the religious upbringing of their children? These are topics of quiet …

Mandatory Planning For Divorce, Jeffrey E. Stake Mar 1992

Mandatory Planning For Divorce, Jeffrey E. Stake

Vanderbilt Law Review

My daughter Laura will reach the median age of first marriage in about seventeen years.' Alison, her little sister, follows three years be hind. There is a good chance they both will marry. What are the odds that those marriages will work out well? Less than I would like. The strong statistical possibility of divorce is hard to ignore and the prospects upon divorce are not rosy. The economic repercussions of divorce for Laura and Alison could be grim, likely worse than those for their brother Christopher if he were to divorce.' What hope have I that this gloomy situation …

Minor Changes: Emancipating Children In Modem Times, Carol Sanger, Eleanor Willemsen Jan 1992

Minor Changes: Emancipating Children In Modem Times, Carol Sanger, Eleanor Willemsen

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

This Article reports on the use of still another mechanism for removing children in conflict with their parents: statutory emancipation, the process by which minors attain legal adulthood before reaching the age of majority. Statutorily emancipated minors can sign binding contracts, own property, keep their earnings, and disobey their parents. Although under eighteen, they are "considered as being over the age of majority" in most of their dealings with parents and third parties. Thus, while emancipated minors can sign contracts and stay out late, their adult status also means that their parents are no longer responsible for the minors' support. …

Guardianship Laws: Reform Efforts In Virginia, Harriette Haile Shivers Jan 1992

Guardianship Laws: Reform Efforts In Virginia, Harriette Haile Shivers

University of Richmond Law Review

During the decade following 1978, six statewide initiatives addressed the need for reform in the Virginia guardianship system. In 1988, the General Assembly established a joint subcommittee to evaluate the status of guardianship in the Commonwealth and to make recommendations to enhance the existing program to ensure the protection of citizens who entrust their lives and property to the guardianship system. Additionally, prompted by the urgent need for a public response to the shortage of available guardians, the General Assembly directed the Department of Social Services to examine the possibility of reserving public guardianship for use only as a last …

Has Connecticut Thrown Out The Baby With The Bath Water? Termination Of Parental Rights And In Re Valerie D., Jennifer M. Mone Jan 1992

Has Connecticut Thrown Out The Baby With The Bath Water? Termination Of Parental Rights And In Re Valerie D., Jennifer M. Mone

Fordham Urban Law Journal

This Note focuses on the termination of parental rights in the context of drug-addicted parents. Termination of parental rights has been characterized as a unique kind of deprivation which has the effect of ending a fundamental liberty interest. In In re Valerie D., Connecticut has established a new precedent in the area of termination of parental rights by holding that parental rights may be terminated at birth solely on the basis of prenatal conduct. This Note discusses Valerie D. in the context of the governmental obligation to promote family integrity and the penumbra of rights residing in the parents, the …
