Attorney Jennifer Paine Contributes to AP article, Discusses Divorce Parties

associated pressCordell & Cordell’s Ann Arbor-based attorney Jennifer Paine contributed to an Associated Press story about divorce parties.

The article, titled “Today’s divorces can mean cake and eating it, too,” explains the rise of parties and festivities that celebrate divorce. While most recently published in The Denver Post, the story is owned by AP and will be featured in multiple publications across the country.

In the article, Paine explained how divorce celebrations and cakes can represent a fresh start on life.

“For divorce, that means the final date of divorce, when all of the hard work and emotions are over,” she said. “It used to mean going out with buddies. Then there was the era of sending a divorce card, then the trip to Las Vegas, and now parties.”

Joe Cordell Speaks with Money Radio about Issues Men Face During Divorce

money radioPrincipal Partner Joseph Cordell recently spoke with Ken Morgan from Money Radio on the station’s Business for Breakfast show.

During his interview, Mr. Cordell addressed many of the most common mistakes men make when facing divorce. He mentioned that for men who want primary child custody, or want to play large roles in their children’s lives, it’s often important not to move out of the house too early in the process.

“Once you’ve done that, you’re at a disadvantage,” Mr. Cordell explained. “Then, you’ve left your children in the primary care of mom. It can be difficult to get back to the place that you were before you walked out that door.”

He also discussed the disadvantages men sometimes face when dealing with family courts.

“There’s been a lot of progress in the last 20 years, I’m happy to report,” said Mr. Cordell. “But for the most part, when guys are in the family courts, they face an uphill battle for equal opportunity with custody of their children, maintenance, issues with child support…[they] are still overwhelmingly at a disadvantage.”

Scott Trout Discusses Upcoming Seminar on The Mark Reardon Show

kmoxCordell & Cordell’s Executive/Managing Partner and CEO, Scott Trout, spoke on The Mark Reardon Show on KMOX today regarding the upcoming Men’s Divorce School in St. Louis, Missouri. The Men’s Divorce School Seminar is on May 13, 2014 at the St. Louis Hilton Frontenac.

Mr. Trout also discussed some of the biggest mistakes men make during divorce, such as moving out of the house too early, and the importance of seeking guidance from an attorney in the appropriate area.

Mark Reardon spoke to Mr. Trout about some of his own personal experiences with the divorce process, acknowledging that it can often be more complicated than first realized.

Mr. Trout emphasized the importance of information early on and of keeping the focus on preparing the client appropriately. He mentioned that Cordell & Cordell often challenges older notions of traditional families or family roles.

“You’ll still see some bias,” Mr. Trout said. “It’s typical for a judge to say, ‘Why doesn’t your client go out and get a job?’ when they might not say that same thing to the mother who stays at home. That’s why we try to challenge the old-school notion and overcome what we all originally thought traditional families meant.”

Those who wish to attend the free Men’s Divorce School seminar in St. Louis on May 13 are encouraged to register beforehand. There is a limited number of seats available.
