Attorney Maura Boogay Interviewed On Philadelphia Eagles Owners’ Divorce

Maura Cunningham divorce lawyerCordell & Cordell attorney Maura Boogay appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia to discuss the high-profile divorce of Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey and Christina Lurie and the impact it may have on the popular NFL franchise.

The Luries have publicly stated their desire for an amicable divorce that will not negatively affect the Eagles, a stark contrast to the bitter divorce battle between Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his now ex-wife, Jamie, that resulted in the sale of the iconic MLB team.

Ms. Boogay said the pending divorce’s impact on the ownership of the team will depend on a variety of unknown factors, including whether the Eagles purchase agreement contained contingencies in the event of the owners’ divorce.

Joe Cordell Shares The Truth About Prenups With Huffington Post

prenuptial agreementOnce seen as an inducement to divorce, and thus a detriment to marriage, prenuptial agreements are now treated as a strength for marriage, though they are not for everyone, according to Joseph Cordell’s latest column on HuffingtonPost.com.

“There’s a popular perception that prenuptial agreements are a cynical way to enter into a marriage,” Cordell wrote in his post “What You Need To Know About Prenups.” “It’s true that prenups recognize the possibility of divorce, but with roughly half of all marriages ending in divorce you would be ignoring reality if you didn’t attempt to protect your interests before tying the knot.”

In general, there are four factors to consider when deciding whether you should pursue a prenup.

1. Age of the parties: the older you are, the more likely you need one.
2. Children from a previous relationship: a prenup is always a good tool to protect the financial future of children from prior marriages or relationships, but these agreements are not allowed to regulate issues relating to children of the future marriage, such as child custody.
3. Presence of substantial assets: the more assets you have, the more likely you need a prenup.
4. Disparity of assets: if there is a large disparity in assets between the two parties, then you want a prenup.

Joe Cordell On Bobby Petrino, Marital Misconduct

Joseph CordellCordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell appeared on Yahoo Sports Radio Network to discuss disgraced football coach Bobby Petrino’s case and how marital misconduct impacts divorce for men.

Petrino, a married father of four children, was fired as head football coach at the University of Arkansas after he covered up he was having an affair with Jessica Dorell, a 25-year-old Arkansas athletic department employee whom he hired. Their affair was revealed after Petrino and Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle accident.

“Whenever you have misconduct like this it has effects that ramify throughout the entire case,” Cordell told host Craig Shemon. “There is potential civil liability of which a judgment could affect marital assets. Dissipating assets, such as giving $20,000 to his girlfriend as has been reported, is also frowned upon by family law judges.”
