Mississippi Family Law

Touchable Distance

The girls and I have a game we play I partly read about in a parenting magazine and partly made up.  It doesn’t have a name.  Rachel likes to be a spectator; she just loves how excited the kids get about it. I take the girls to school most mornings, and the game is great way to have conversations and create a fun, yet competitive spirit with Mollie Ann and Emma. Read More

Family is a Choice

I think one of the scariest things a person faces when divorcing in Mississippi, or anywhere for that matter, is that their family will look differently.  A family is supposed to be a mommy, daddy, two kids (a boy and a girl), a house with a picket fence and a dog named Barkley, right?  The daddy works from 9 to 5 and not on the weekends and mommy stays home and does housework and pilates, with cookies and milk waiting for the kids when they get off the bus, as Barkley obediently sits next to her side, tail wagging and tongue appropriately extended.  At night, they play board games, read books and do their homework before dozing off to a peaceful sleep in their matching twin beds. Read More

It Is Cheaper to Keep Her

I am proud I have a pretty good record in our Mississippi family law and divorce courts.  The main reason is because I do my best to stay out if my client cannot win.  This week has been a humbling exception.   Read More

I’m Divorced, I’m Separated, I’m Miserable, What Now?

Happy New Year! I have been intentionally silent in the blogosphere and email blast world for the last few weeks since our big gala for 200 Million Flowers on December 6th. I guess I was just out of gas, having run so hard in 2012. It took totally unplugging from everything just for the creative energy to start to percolate again.  Even on the last day of the work year I was forced to send a message to a young attorney.  MESSAGE:  If we are going to deal with one another for the next decade or two practicing divorce law in Mississippi, it goes a long way to pick up the phone and talk to me before trying to go around me.  Be a problem solver not a problem creator. Read More

Adoption, Mentoring and Teen Pregnancy

By now you probably know that Mississippi ranks the highest in teen pregnancy nationwide.   Check out this recent news report.    According to Governor Bryant and his Plan to Prevent and Reduce Teen Pregnancy in Mississippi, youth in Mississippi are burdened with high rates of adverse life circumstances such as: Read More

The Strongest Drug Known to Man

A counselor friend of mine from Meridian used to say that the strongest drug known to man is strange nookie.  Wikipedia, the authority on everything, says “nookie” is a slang term for sexual intercourse.  Get it? Read More

Love is Creative

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a sermon in 1957 at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.  It is definitely worth hearing.  He said the following: Read More

Go Buy a TV

I have gotten on this kick where I like salmon for breakfast –whether it be in an omelet or on a bagel or served Benedict style, throw in some tomatoes, purple onion, cream cheese and capers and it is on.   If you are feeling frisky, you could include a little spinach for color.  While I have been trying to cut carbs lately, for breakfast, especially one including “pink fish”, I make an exception. Every now and then I will go to breakfast by myself.  It is a good way for me to clear my head before I get in to the office to face the day’s challenges.  Read More

Cancer

I’m going to say something that could not be more of an understatement.  Cancer is a drag.  My experience with the disease is next to non-existent, until now.  My sister was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago.  The doctors kicked the cancer’s butt, but in the process, they took out the good stuff she needs to fight the everyday bad stuff we don’t even think about.  Now minor infections and yeasts and molds can be life-threatening.   Read More

ICU

The ICU waiting room is a terrible place.  I spent 3 days there this week.  One of the reasons I am not a doctor, other than not being smart enough, is because I hate hospitals.  The people that work there seem to be okay, but the buildings themselves depress me. Read More
