Lilah's fantastic Huffpo article on sperm donor rights!
No matter where you live, the informal, friendly, at-home donation method is a bad idea. The casual use of a friend's sperm almost always leads to unwanted legal consequences.

Here's Alison again with another fantastic blog article.  This one on the topic of joint custody agreements.  It's always the best option to amicably create a custody arrangement with your co-parent.  Trust us, the kids do better when the parents get along!
We can bottom line this one for you quickly: A written joint custody agreement helps your children because they know what to expect.

My first Huffington Post article just published, and I'm super excited. After writing and speaking about it for years, the idea of using premarital agreements as a vehicle to strengthen marriages is finally gaining traction!

Ali was just quoted on lawyers.com in an article about David Arquette and Courtney Cox - the best thing: Ali's photo is twice the size of Courtney's!  Lawyers.com definitely has their priorities in order!

I just published an article at HuffPost! This one is about an Amicus brief my law firm just signed in the DOMA case going before the US Supreme Court this spring. (Obviously, we're for overturning DOMA).

Just created a Clarity.FM account.  It allows people to donate to charity by having call with me on any of the areas where I provide expertise: divorce, marriage planning, and child custody.  What do you think?

This is it!  Hope you can help!  Smashing cars for charity is always fun, right?!
