  • VANITY--Legal Eagles, with decree in hand (post divorce)

    03/05/2015 3:27:41 PM PST · by Ghost of SVR4 · 19 replies
    I have a question for the legal eagle folks out there (I am seeking representation, just asking now so I know what to ask later). Once a divorce decree is issued and the alimony is "set" with the clause "said alimony is non-modifiable" in the decree; can a spouse go back and get that modified? I am considering asking my former spouse for child support (kids live with me 100% of the time) and they are looking to "Motion to Modify". Mind you, custody has never been disputed, not even during the divorce. Said spouse simply does not make the...

She’s had it since 2006, when she was attacked on the campaign trail by a man wielding a utility knife. On Thursday, in an eerily similar incident, the U.S. ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was slashed on the face and wrist in the South Korean capital.

    Last week, thanks to members’ calls, two egregious anti-gun bills, House Bill 1131 and House Bill 1857, died at cut-off. As previously reported, HB 1131, sponsored by Representative Eric Pettigrew (D-37), would have criminalized the sale or transfer of legally purchased ivory and ivory products, including firearms, knives and other collectible items. HB 1131 was introduced with the supposed intent of curbing poaching and helping to end the illegal ivory trade. Unfortunately, this bill would not have accomplished either of those purported objectives. Also previously reported, HB 1857, sponsored by Representative Laurie Jinkins (D-27), would have allowed a family member,...

Because their powerful noses are able to pick up loads of information, including the other dog’s gender, diet, and emotional state. Dogs aren’t the only ones to behave this way; rats and primates do as well, including humans, according to a new study. And when it comes to the way we do it, you may have never even noticed it.

    There are countless television shows that far outstayed their welcome, becoming almost unwatchable self-parodies by the end. The Drew Carey Show, The Office, and Scrubs are three extreme examples of this phenomenon. As series drag on, show fans become show writers and what ends up happening is effectively fanfic on screen. It’s why The Simpsons still makes the same jokes again and again. Parks and Recreation isn’t unwatchable yet, but boy is it close. This is a shame. While the series was never great, it was still one of the most consistent sitcoms of the last decade. All the characters...
