Neil and Pegi Young divorce

Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, will end their 36 years of marriage, the couple announced recently.

Young filed for the divorce on July 29, 2014, but did not indicate reasons for filing. There has been no comment from Neil or Pegi since news of their divorce became public.

Neil Young’s fans speculated on the rift in the couple’s marriage. They noticed that Young played Separate Ways on a July 13 concert in Liverpool and Days That Used to Be on a July 10 concert in Cork, Ireland.

It is not likely that the ex-couple will both appear at Young’s concert on Saturday, September 13 at the Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina. Pegi’s name, along with her backup group The Survivors, was removed from the lineup of the performers for that day, which include Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Jack White, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews.

Court Upholds Unsealing of NASCAR CEO Divorce Documents

After over a year long battle over the unsealing of NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France’s divorce documents, the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously voted to uphold a previous ruling to unseal the documents on Monday, December 31.

France’s lawyers have worked for years to maintain the confidentiality of documents from France’s 2008 divorce from ex-wife Megan France, to whom he was married twice. In 2011, the Court of Appeals favored the public’s right to know against France’s secrecy. As a result of this ruling, District Court Judge Jena Culler order the documents unsealed, reversing another judge’s earlier order.

Following the 2011 ruling, France’s lawyers appealed, stating that this reversal could lead to “judicial anarchy.” However, this most recent ruling maintains that the documents must be unsealed for public knowledge.

Divorce under any circumstances can be extremely frustrating, emotional, and confusing. To understand your rights and options when going through a divorce, in addition to getting the support you deserve, call a divorce lawyer of Marshall & Taylor PLLC, today at 919-833-1040.

Facebook impacts current divorce rates

The popular networking site Facebook has been cited quite frequently in recent divorce cases across the United States.

According to Divorce Online, more than one-third of all divorce cases that were filed in 2011 had the word “Facebook” included somewhere in the official paperwork. This social media site has been used to establish poor parenting, cheating, and negative behavior from a spouse in court documents.

Children’s profiles are viewed in order to determine if they are misbehaving, and that information can be reflected on parents in child custody cases. Access to personal account information must also be shared in certain divorce cases, and direct messages can be used to show adultery in a relationship.
