According to the National Vital Statistics Report issued by the Centers for Disease Control on March 31, 2006, over 18,660 Arizona marriages ended in divorce between January and September 2005, up slightly from previous years.

Women are more aware of protecting their rights during a divorce, said Alexander D. Nirenstein, NRGs managing member. Our job is to make sure our clients are educated and receive positive results in their cases.

The women in attendance at the Womens Expo inquired about an assortment of topics such as child custody, spousal support and property division, said Ruotolo. We were able to provide these women with empowering information, helping them make better decisions for their future and the future of their children.

California Family Law Firm Discusses the Myths, the Truth and Some Tips About Paying Child Support in California

Whittier, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2008

California family law firm Schuster Family Law discusses the myths, the truths and the tips about paying child support in California.

The Myths — “When it comes to paying child support, there is seldom agreement,” said Dennis Schuster, founder of Schuster Family Law. “Mothers and fathers will either claim they cannot pay the support ordered by the court or that they cannot live on the support ordered by the court. Paying child support is never an easy aspect of divorce proceedings.”

According to Schuster, this is because people hear so many different stories regarding child support. On one hand, there are the stories how one person paid little or nothing toward child support; on the other hand, there are also stories how another person got a large amount of money for child support.

The Truth — The truth of the matter, says Schuster, is that child support is regulated by a complex formula established by the State of California.

“Support is usually based upon all gross income (including overtime and bonuses) for the past 12 months of both parties, number of children, percentage of time each child is with parent,” said Schuster.

He explained that the court will allow certain hardship deductions, such as an unusual medical expenses; however, the court ordinarily doesn’t take into account a person’s monthly living expenses.

Schuster notes that when it comes to paying child support, there is often not a lot of room for negotiation, so the parties must accept whatever the judge orders.

Some Tips

–Most important, the person who pays must pay.

—If the payer doesn’t pay, the amount owed will accrue 10% interest per year.

—Child support cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.

–With the exception of money owed to a County Department of Child Support Services for AFDC, there is no statute of limitations on child support.

–To protect yourself, insist on a wage assignment order attaching your wages. It’s proof you paid.

–When obtaining a child support order, it’s important the amount for each child be clearly indicated, so this amount will be automatically reduced once the child becomes an adult.

Mesa / Phoenix Law Firm Emphasizes the Importance of Timely Estate Planning

Mesa/Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 22, 2009

Most people procrastinate estate planning until they near retirement age; however, life always involves the unexpected and failure to create and regularly update an estate plan may result in a loss of a significant portion of an estate to taxes, probate costs and litigation expenses. It can also result in loved ones not getting what they were intended to receive.

“Every adult 18 years of age and older who has a bank account, a home, a retirement account or other assets should review the need for an estate plan with a qualified attorney,” says Michael L. Ferrin, founding partner of the law firm of Gibson Ferrin & Riggs, PLC.

“Estate planning is the accumulation, preservation, and distribution of your assets,” says Ferrin. “A good estate plan should reduce tax liability, protect assets from creditors, promote financial well being and security and leave a legacy for those you love.”

Ferrin, whose expertise includes various types of trusts, wills, powers of attorney and family limited partnerships, explains that the type and complexity of the estate plan may vary greatly depending on factors such as the value of the estate, types of assets held, marital and family issues, age and other factors, but almost every adult needs some level of planning.

“Estate planning can be a complicated and sometimes confusing process,” he adds. “That is why it is so important to have trusted professionals assisting you with this important process.”

Ferrin points out that beneficiaries of a well-prepared estate plan will gain tax savings, convenience and asset protection, but the greatest benefit to a person may be the peace of mind in knowing that her or she has provided for family members and loved ones.

“Don’t put if off,” Ferrin cautions.

“A friend of our law firm who provided technical support services to us over the years would often stick his head in my office and say, ‘I need to come in and see you so you can help me with a trust.’ I would tell him, ‘I would be happy to help you any time you are ready,'” Ferrin relates. “About a year ago he said to me, ‘I am leaving on vacation with my wife, but when I return we are going to come see you for a trust.’ ‘I will look forward to it,’ I replied. Unfortunately, the couple was killed in a head-on collision with a drunk driver while returning from that vacation. The family was completely unprepared for this event, and the family went through a great deal of expense, stress and turmoil as a result.”

“We, unfortunately, do not usually know when it is our time to go,” he says. “We just know that eventually the time will come, and it is critical that we be prepared when it does. The time to start working on an estate plan is now.”

Ferrin notes that once a person has an estate plan in place it is important to regularly review and update it to make sure it is still applicable.

“If you experience any major life changes – marriage, divorce, and birth of a child or death of a spouse or child – update your estate plan immediately,” he says. “Generally, any change in your personal, family, financial or health situation or a change in the tax laws, could prompt a change in your estate plan. It’s a good idea to review your estate plan every year. Set aside a specific time every year (birthday, anniversary, family gathering) to review it.”

To help with the important task of estate planning, Gibson Ferrin & Riggs offers a free, 30-minute consultation to determine what type of plan is best for individual needs.

In the consultation, attorneys will explain the advantages and disadvantages of different estate planning techniques, what fees are involved in setting up the various types of estate plans and help work out a convenient payment plan if needed.

Call attorney Michael L. Ferrin at 480-633-8100 to schedule a confidential and comprehensive consultation.

Adams Law for Men Sets Precedent as the First Fort Lauderdale Divorce Attorney and Family Law Firm Dedicated to Mens Rights


Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 17, 2009

Gerald Adams and Associates is the first Fort Lauderdale family law firm dedicated to fighting for Mens Rights in the civil court room. This firm provides all services related to family law including divorce, parenting plans and time-sharing (custody rights), spousal support, asset distribution, paternity, child support, domestic violence and even post- trial- litigation.

Gerald Adams and Associates is determined to break through the politically correct barriers where society and prehistoric family courts have stereotypically favored mothers and wives in domestic violence and family law proceedings. The firms business manager, Ila Bennett explained, Most clients dont even know to look for a mens rights attorney in South Florida, they simply search for a Fort Lauderdale Divorce Attorney for men or family law firm in Fort Lauderdale. Taboo social issues such as spousal support for the stay- at – home dad and cases where the husband has been emotionally and even physically abused, is societys dirty little secret.

Gerald Adams utilizes his website, http://www.AdamsLaw4Men.com as a vehicle to educate the public about relevant social issues and recent law changes impacting husbands and fathers rights in the state of Florida. AdamsLaw4Men.com offers potential clients a discreet place to research and inquire about how a person can improve their personal legal situation. Ila Bennett commented, One interesting trend that we have noticed is that the preliminary contact made with our law firm is often initiated by a woman on behalf of her current husband, boyfriend or male friend whom she feels is being exploited.

The law firms founder and Mens Rights advocate, Gerald Adams, responded, Most men dont realize they can step forward and renegotiate the terms of their parenting plan, holiday visitation rights, or child support and alimony payments after the original court order has been established. If you feel that your current situation is unfair or that you may be heading toward divorce or paternity proceedings, you should not hesitate to educate yourself and be proactive in establishing and defending your rights by contacting a family law attorney. Advance preparation is imperative for obtaining the best results in family law proceedings. Dont get caught back on your heels.

As a divorcee himself, Gerald Adams utilizes his vast knowledge of mens rights and family law, as well as his own personal experiences, to advise his clients. Gerald divorced with two small children in the 1970s and moved to Washington State to be closer to his ex-wife, her husband and their two children, where he obtained a law degree in Spokane, Washington, at Gonzaga Law School.

While Gerald initially began practicing general law, he noticed a trend of male clients who were denied their basic legal rights as parents, and soon after developed a passion advocating for a familys best interests, where both parents have the opportunity to play an integral role in their childrens lives.

Raging Artists Named Public Relations Firm for AmberWatch Foundation


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2010

Full service Public Relations and Web Marketing firm Raging Artists has been named PR firm of record for non-profit AmberWatch Foundation, the definitive name in preventing crimes against children. The firm’s clientele spans the spectrum, from retail and eCommerce to advertising, film production, entertainment, and non-profits. It recently created SaveTheWhalesNow.com, the site behind Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Brosnan’s controversial “Mr. President” campaign.

The announcement comes as AmberWatch Foundation begins a massive multi-platform campaign launching its AmberWatch Alert System, a free, vetted subscriber service that offers parents a proactive and preemptive “Weapon of Choice” in the protection of their children. Raging Artists is handling PR for the launch, as AWF CEO Keith Jarrett begins a national media tour aimed at cultivating a 10 million+ AmberWatchAlert.org database.

“We’re a progressive public relations firm that embraces the power of the Web,” said Raging Artists CEO Hesh Rephun, who founded the firm in 2006. “We are especially receptive to clients who espouse strong thought leadership and approach brand awareness with bravery and conviction. AmberWatch Foundation fits that bill perfectly.”

That bravery is evident in a powerful PSA that was launched on the Web June 21. The spot features moms across the country literally taking up arms against those who would seek to harm their children. It will be followed by print, TV, and radio components.

We are extremely grateful and appreciative that Hesh and his team at Raging Artists stepped up to put their extraordinary talents behind our cause of keeping kids safe though the AmberWatch Alert System,” said Jarrett. “We look forward to great success.

The ad campaign shows an understanding of the powerful technological tools currently available to brands, Rephun said. “A lot of clients talk about ‘today’s world’ but they don’t avail themselves of current technology. The same applies to public relations firms who talk about SEO but don’t walk the walk or invest in R&D. We now have a team of people working 24/7 to stay ahead of the curve. They’re so committed, it’s scary.”

At present, Raging Artists’ services include Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Content Creation, Online Magazine Development, and Blog Hosting. In addition to SaveTheWhalesNow.com, Raging Artists has developed and marketed online magazines for LA Gear, Moon Media/ADDigital, and others; in addition to its writing staff, the firm also maintains in-house production and photography divisions to create original content for these blogs. In partnership with sneaker marketing consultancy SLAM (Sportie LA Media), Raging Artists just filmed an original Web series for up-and-coming boots and shoes brand BEARPAW, to be launched on its RA-created magazine, BEARPAWstyle.com. “We are not shy about pushing the envelope,” Rephun affirmed. “We ARE Raging Artists. We’re strategic and creative about the art of promotion.”

About AmberWatchFoundation:

AmberWatch Foundation was established in 2004, with the mission to provide educational programs and innovative technologies that proactively and preemptively protect children against abduction, predators and the dangers of the digital world. The AmberWatch Foundation is a 501c3 national not for profit organization, headquartered in Seal Beach, California.

Wisselman, Harounian and Associates, P.C., a Long Island Family Law Firm Announces Four Upcoming Events & Discusses Successful Legal Workshop

Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2010

The Law Firm of Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C. conducted their ninth annual legal workshop for approximately 185 mental health professionals addressing WHAT EVERY MENTAL HEALTH PRACTITIONER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CUSTODY & VISITATION AND IMPORTANT SOCIAL ISSUES AFFECTING CHILDREN. The workshop aims to assist these professionals when counseling patients marital and family law issues. Many mental health professionals come year after year to these presentations and we appreciate their support. We were also pleased to see many new faces this year, as we reached a record high attendance. Each year, attendees have been able to receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from the mental health professional organizations for their participation. Our workshops are held at the Port Washington Yacht Club.

This years presentation was about the process of reaching a custody and visitation agreement and also addressed the very important issue of bullying in the schools and on the Internet. Also discussed were mediation, litigation and collaborative law, and the pros and cons of each approach. Dealing with custody & visitation issues can be a very difficult process. The importance of good communication during this negotiation is critical, and we addressed how mental health professionals can help their patients deal with these challenges, including:


Managing anger to facilitate reaching agreements
Handling an impasse in negotiating an agreement, and finally
Proceeding with litigation when an agreement cannot be negotiated.

We examined an actual Custody and Visitation Stipulation, and reviewed the components of a comprehensive agreement that protects both the parents and children, starting with a summary of the types of custody (joint vs. sole custody). Special provisions to an agreement were discussed, including spheres of influence and delegation of decision-making responsibilities, religion, corporal punishment, relocation, and how unique circumstances, i.e., drug abuse, and same-sex relationships are dealt with in an agreement.

The important and current topic of bullying in the school and on the Internet was also addressed including its impact on the child and the family, and what legal recourse is available for victims of this abuse.

The workshop presenters were attorneys from our firm: Jerome Wisselman, Jacqueline Harounian, Lloyd Rosen, Eyal Talassazan and Lauren Chartan. We were pleased to have a guest speaker, Betty Gross, from CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Services) who spoke about school bully prevention programs for children, parents and professionals.

New SECSnitch.com SEC Whistleblower Site and Theatre Ads Launched by Law Firm


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2010

The nationally recognized investor and securities employment law firm of Stuart D. Meissner LLC, located Manhattan, New York, announced today the launching of http://www.SECSnitch.com ], targeting whistleblowers under the new whistleblower provisions within the July 21, 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Act deputized employees in Wall Street brokerage firms and public companies to be the eyes and ears of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The law awards a whistleblower who provides original information leading to the successful prosecution of the violation of securities laws to recover 10% to 30% of any monetary sanctions exceeding $ 1,000,000 recovered by the SEC or CFTC. In addition, the Act provides legal recourse for employees who are retaliated or discriminated against as a result of whistleblowing under the statute. In addition, if represented by counsel, the law provides for anonymity if the whistleblower so chooses, up until the whistleblower is paid their bounty.

The site is being launched along with the release of Oliver Stones Wall Street Money Never Sleeps starring Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf. Along with the site, a new advertisement will be aired in theatres, targeting securities industry employees. LaBeouf plays the role of Jacob (Jake) Moore and lives in an apartment in Manhattans Chelsea district. The advertisement will be first shown on the films release date, Friday September 24, 2010 in Chelsea, the fictional home of Jake, appearing in Chelsea Cinemas, along with the renowned Ziegfeld Theatre in the Broadway district in Manhattan. The ad will be set to music similar to the theme song from Law and Order. The showing of the http://www.SECSnitch.com advertisement will roll out to other theatres in other areas of New York commencing on October 8, 2010 including the Brooklyn Pavilion Theatre in Park Slope and Great Neck Squire Cinemas.

Stuart Meissner Esq., is a former Assistant Attorney General in NY State Investor Protection and Financial Crimes Section both under Eliot Spitzer and his predecessor. Mr. Meissner was also a prosecutor in the Trial Division of the Manhattan DAs Office under former DA Robert Morgenthau. For the past nine years Mr. Meissner has successfully represented numerous defrauded investors against Wall Street investment banks, Wall Street whistleblowers and individual securities employees, never having lost any in-person FINRA arbitration* to date. In 2006 Meissner represented a senior employee whistleblower from UBS in a FINRA employment claim, resulting in an investigation by former NYS Attorney General Spitzer, reported December 13, 2006 in the Wall Street Journal.

The Meissner firm has already filed five SEC complaints based on the new statute involving Wells Fargo Investments, Banc of America Investment Services, hedge fund Plainfield Asset Management and others. In addition, several other whistleblower claims involving past major investment bank and hedge fund activity are expected to be filed in the coming weeks. The claims focus on activity not only in the United States, but around the world. Most of the claims involve issues arising from 2008 credit crises. One complaint filed by the Meissner firm has already resulted in an investigation by the FBI and United States Attorneys Office as reported by Fortune Magazines September 10, 2010 issue and another complaint has resulted in the launching of a FINRA Enforcement investigation, which often refers their results to the SEC.

Meissner authored a July 27, 2010 Forbes.com article , titled Law Lets Whistle-blowers Get Rich For Doing the Right Thing detailing the implications of new law. Meissner also submitted an August 17th 2010 comment letter to the SEC to assist the SEC in its rule making required in implementing the new statute. Mr. Meissner is also scheduled to meet with Stephen L. Cohen, the Senior Advisor to the SEC Chairman, on September 23, 2010 in Washington DC to provide input on how the regulator may create rules to encourage whistleblowing and the protection of whistleblowers. We want to encourage the future Jakes of Wall Street to come forward and show that the famous movie phrase Greed is Good can be a positive force for Wall Street and not just a negative force, said Meissner, the brain child of the campaign to help the SEC clean up Wall Street.
