    Who controls the family business in a divorce?

    If one spouse owns a business and the other works with it, then what happens when they split up? Or if both own it and one has to leave - suddenly without a job and an income?

    So many questions are answered in this important podcast featuring Modern Divorce Host Billie Tarascio and Arizona attorney Darin Colburn who pick apart the strategies and possibilities when valuing and splitting up a business. They cover how to value the business, and whether it's good to pay an expert to do that (watch out for the gotchas!). Also, they talk about how a judge looks at tax returns and whether the deductions you take affect the valuation - and the judge's opinion of you!

    This is a fascinating walk through the considerations of splitting a business and what that means for spousal support and more.

    What happens when someone reports you for child abuse?

    What happens when someone reports you for child abuse?

    Maybe it was your teenager getting out of line, and an unfortunate shoving match ensued. Maybe it was you leaving the kids home alone when your ex thought it was too dangerous. Or maybe it was a parent possibly using drugs and another relative calls to make a report. All of these scenarios may prompt the state Department of Child Services to get involved, which may throw you or someone you know into a whole lotta trouble.

    In this episode of the Modern Divorce Podcast, family law attorney Billie Tarascio talks with former Arizona DCS case worker and Modern Law staffer Vanessa Adams. As someone who visited homes and tried to put families back together again, she gives her important perspective of the process, and what you should know about what happens when someone reports a presumptive child abuse.

    If you are not familiar with the process of investigating child abuse through a state agency, this episode is a must listen for anyone who has kids, or who has ever considered reporting child abuse.

    Unmarried Partner traps: The Surprising Rules That Can Cost You When You Break Up

    Unmarried Partner traps: The Surprising Rules That Can Cost You When You Break Up

    Moving in together seems simple, right? Until someone moves out,  that someone claims the rights that belong to "cohabitating partners" in that state.

    In this episode, Modern Divorce's Billie Tarascio and Washington Family Law Attorney Michelle Dellino compare the high impact differences between splitting up in one state versus another.

    Prepare to hear some critical traps and "gotchas" in this episode that make this a must-listen to anyone who is living with their partner without a marriage license.  In fact, the idea that "we don't need a piece of paper" to make a relationship is exactly right - because the state you live in will make the rules for you, and it may not be pretty. And it's probably going to cost one of you waaaaay more than the other, unless you both decide for yourselves what the rules should be beforehand.

Personality disorders that affect your Divorce

This episode was very informative, in fact it confirmed so much of what i researched on narcissitic personnality disorder. i really appreciate Kris explaininng that as a non professional. it is important to focus on the behaviour rather than diagnosis of the ex partner.
