Court hands down verdict in Deion Sanders custody case

A jury has awarded former NFL star Deion Sanders sole conservatorship of his two sons, while he will share joint conservatorship of his daughter with his wife. The jury reportedly returned with their decision roughly three hours after hearing Deion Sanders testify as the case's final witness. One of the 12 jurors refused to sign off on the verdict, but the law only requires signatures from 10. The decision concludes a custody battle that began when Deion and Pilar Sanders announced that they were separating in late 2011. They remain married but are estranged and have accused each other of assault and abuse.

Michigan organization plans divorce workshops for women

A nonprofit organization known as the Women's Divorce Resource Center recently announced that it will hold a regular series of seminars aimed at helping Michigan women more easily undergo divorce. The educational seminars, named "Your Divorce Workshop" will largely focus on the planning for a divorce and handling the early stages of dissolving a marriage in court. As such, women attending the workshop will have access to family counselors, financial advisers and legal experts to help them better understand the divorce process. The workshops are currently only scheduled for Bloomfield Township, but other Michigan communities could adopt similar programs if the seminars prove successful.

Her former spouse explained that they had been married for five years, but had a falling out that culminated in a bitter divorce.
