As the 21st century thunders forward, technology and new social norms continue to evolve the shape of marriage. Relationships look vastly different now than when they did 50 years ago, or even 10 years ago. As a result, divorce is beginning to take on a new shape, giving rise to new concerns. For example, as pets become as precious to young couples as children, pet custody is becoming a valid sub-practice underneath divorce law. This is just one way that societal changes are shifting how divorce is conducted.

For that reason, The Harris Law Firm is happy to provide a series of articles and resources regarding current marriage trends and how to best handle them. Ranging from divorce concerns for the elderly to abusing surveillance technology to spy on a spouse, these articles may allow readers in the middle of a divorce to think about aspects of divorce law that they may not have considered before.

For any legal questions that are unanswered here, feel free to contact our family law firm.
