IN what is shaping up to be a Hollywood Epic Divorce, could be the standard Child Custody War Plan that too many lawyers in Family Court apply – the “he’s abusive and negligent claims” to Child Protective Services and/or the judge.

I lay out in this article for how it could all play out for Brad Pitt. The good news for him is that he has such enormous resources that almost any obstacle that is placed in front of him can be overcome with money. That’s also what’s bad for him, is Angelina Jolie has such enormous amounts of money and star power, and acting skills, that she can wage war convincingly, for a long time.


“Angelina’s likely next step will be to seek a 3-week temporary restraining order which can easily be granted by a judge based on Angelina’s declaration alone,” David told EXCLUSIVELY. “This would likely immediately take effect and put Brad on limited supervised visits [with the children] only. If there is no investigation launched by CPS then in 21 days a judge would hear the validity of the claims to determine custody and visitation until they finalize the divorce.”

Sperm Banking for Worry Free Sex

Published on 14 September 2016 by in blog

Sperm Banking for Worry Free Sex

I give my legal clients loads of advice – advice that is more “how to be happy” than it is legal sometimes. One of the many things I tell men is that to be free and happy and take control over their futures is to take control over their reproductive choices. That’s usually a woman’s topic, but the times they are a’ changing.

Today, men have options that previous generations didn’t in terms of their contraceptive choices and the actions that they can take to not only preserve their best genetic material, but also guard against an unwanted pregnancy from that weekend frolic with the woman you didn’t really get to know.

What I tell men is they should go to a sperm bank and freeze enough of their sperm to ensure as many opportunities to be a father as they want, and then they need to get a vasectomy and they can live the rest of their life  having worry-free sex without a concern of unintentionally becoming a father.

This week I’m doing research on Cryo Choice, a company that specializes in preserving sperm for men on a private basis so that they can preserve their opportunities for parenthood at the same time as making responsible decisions about their contraceptive choices. I’ll be speaking with a Cryo Choice representative about the process, the costs and the benefits on my Men’s Family Law podcast – which is why I’m doing research today.

If you’ve ever wondered about sperm banks, vasectomies and how to protect yourself and live a worry free life – the Sperm Bank episode and the Vasectomy episode will answer your questions.

Chris Brown had a standoff this week with the Los Angeles Police Department. The drama continues in his never ending troubles with the law. 

What this means is that he’s giving his Baby Mama lots and lots of fodder to drag him back to court and stop his unsupervised custody and that means she’ll be coming after him for more money in the form of more child support. 

  • I spoke with and gave my opinion on the impact of his criminal cases on the family law case.

Pay Your Child Support With Pizza? Maybe.

In the News of The Wacky, I came across this article on Huffington Post about a man who was being charged with the crime of not paying his child support. It turns out though that the FEMALE JUDGE agreed with his lawyer, that when hard times hit and he didn’t have the cash to pay the $350 a month in support to his ex wife, his offer to give her that much in pizza, calzones and other food from his restaurant, counted. His ex-wife turned him down, and then came after him for the cash but the court sided with him, and acquitted him of any crime.

So can you pay your support in pizza? maybe if you own a pizzeria. How about subs? maybe if you own a Subway Restaurant. The point really is that he made his best efforts to be a stand up guy, would that work in the states? it’s a tough call. But hey, if it’s all you’ve got as an argument. Go with it.
