This past decade has challenged us all with a roller coaster ride of emotional events to say the least! We have been through 9-11, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the deepest recession since the Great Depression, and our first African-American President. Many changes have happened in the area of divorce as well. The following, in no particular order, are my 10 top divorce and family law related issues since 2000:

The advent of the Internet and social networking
1 of 11
The tremendous impact of the computer and the internet on divorce. Social networking. The rise of Facebook, YouTube, and other sites, where people share with careless abandon their innermost secrets, with little concern for the consequences of detection by the wrong party. E-mails, bullying, texting and sexting have had a noticeable impact on divorce, and the way family law attorneys handle their cases, and have also impacted our society as a whole.
