How not to let 'gray divorce' ruin your retirement

Newly released divorce figures reveal that splitting up in middle age is becoming much more common in Ogden and around the country. The number of "gray divorces," or divorces after age 50, doubled between 1990 and 2010. Though readers may assume that once we reach a certain age, we are likely to stay with our spouse the rest of our lives, the Baby Boom generation is actually becoming one of the most common age groups to go through divorce. In 2010, 25 percent of divorces were among those over 50.

Ex-trooper accused of false DUI arrests could face class action

The one-time Utah Highway Patrol "Trooper of the Year" whose staggering number of DUI arrests were later shown to be pumped up by numerous false arrests is creating more headaches for her former department. Two of the ex-trooper's former victims have filed lawsuits against her and UHP. The plaintiffs, who say the trooper arrested them for DUI despite the fact that both of them were sober, are seeking to have the litigation granted class-action status, potentially bringing in hundreds of others whose lives were derailed by the trooper's tactics.

Divorce court doesn't believe wife's claim of haunted house

When an Ogden couple gets a divorce, they generally must decide what to do with their home. If they rented a house or apartment, then the issue should be fairly simple to resolve.

Another Utah Highway Patrol trooper accused of false DUI arrest

In this blog, we have discussed several times the case of a former member of the Utah Highway Patrol who was fired after an investigation revealed that she regularly arrested motorists for DUI even when the evidence suggested that they were not intoxicated in order to beef up her arrest record. Now another person who was arrested for DUI despite passing all roadside tests is saying that a state trooper committed false arrest against him.

Research shows divorce rate higher for unemployed men than women

The American Journal of Sociology recently published a university research study that shows divorce rates are higher for unemployed men than women. According to the researchers, there is really very little difference in the divorce rates if the woman is employed or not, but it is much higher when the man is unemployed.
