Did you know that this Sunday, July 27, 2014 marks National Parents' Day? While it may not be as popular as Father's Day or Mother's Day in the United States  yet, National Parents' Day has existed now since January of 1994 and takes place on the fourth Sunday in July each year.

Introduced as a bill by Senator Trent Lott and signed into law by President Clinton, Parents' Day was created to support both the mother and father roles equally and to minimize stereotypical gender-based ideas about parenthood.

what is res judicataBy Sara Pitcher

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

Res judicata is a Latin term meaning "a thing adjudicated."

This refers to an issue that has been definitely settled by judicial decision. This bars the same parties from litigating a second lawsuit on the same claim or any other claim arising from the same transaction that could have been but was not raised in the first suit. 

There are three essential elements for res judicata:

1.) An earlier decision on the issue;

2.) A final judgment on the merits; and

3.) The involvement of the same parties or parties in privity with the original parties.

The impact of res judicata in family law may be perceived differently than in other areas of law.

appeal divorce caseBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

You may be unsatisfied with your trial judge's ruling. You may have a right to appeal your divorce case. But should you?

It is easy to say "yes" when you are in the immediate afterglow of litigation and facing an unfavorable ruling. Many jurisdictions make it even easier by giving you an "automatic right" to appeal certain rulings, meaning you do not have to obtain permission for the appeal.

And, many of those jurisdictions require only a one-paragraph form and a filing fee – filed online no less. Within minutes, with a few clicks of the mouse and a single charge to your credit card, you could be appealing your case.

But wait! Having a right to appeal your divorce case does not necessarily mean you should, and acting on initial reactions to a trial judge's ruling could leave you worse off and heavily indebted to attorneys. Sometimes, it is better to accept a ruling and move forward.

Before you decide, consider these 10 questions:
