I wouldn’t advise anyone to get a #divorce purely for #financial reasons. If anything, it can be expensive. But as with many difficult life events, there can be a silver lining.

Today I had the distinct pleasure of assisting a client to a parental termination that will precede adoption in a somewhat unique situation: A woman who was a co-worker of a gay guy agreed to conceive and carry a child for him and his husband. Turns out, she became pregnant with twin girls, and both were born healthy, although one did have a scare with meningitis last summer. Fast-forward to today, where the juvenile-dependency court judge granted severance of mom's parental rights (as was agreed from the beginning) so that the guys could get one step closer to full adoption by the non-bio dad. It is rare that such happy, celebratory events occur in a courtroom setting. Hooray!😀

In #Arizona, #pets are considered personal property, no different from a toaster, in a #divorce. Animal welfare advocates have long pushed for the creation of a new class of property to give companion animals an elevated status under the law. In #Illinois, a new pet custody law does just that. Beginning January 1, 2018, judges will be required to consider the best interests of the family pets when allocating property in a #divorce.

One week after letting stand a #Texas ruling that #samesex spouses may not be entitled to government-subsidized workplace benefits, #SCOTUS declines to hear a case involving #LGBTQ #employment protections.

I am extremely proud to announce that Joan Bundy Law is now a sponsor of a Southern White Rhinoceros at the Phoenix Zoo! They are extremely endangered in the wild (like only 60 or so left :(), as I learned at a CLE (continuing legal education seminar) last spring at the Phoenix Zoo sponsored by the State Bar of Arizona's Animal Law Section while I was chairperson. #phxzoo

I can guarantee this would never happen at Joan Bundy Law PLC, but if a #divorce attorney (or anyone else in a position of greater power) tries to talk you into sex or anything else you don't want, just say no and report them to the state bar! #standuptosexualharassment
