The most visited page of this “Legal Updates” blog is that on adultery, concubinage, marital infidelity, and psychological violence with more than 347,000 page views. The other pages with a high number of visits are those dealing with financial support for an abandoned woman and her children, annulment or declaration of nullity of marriage, and custody battles over children.

My hope is that more people will learn how to reclaim their marriage and rebuild their family. Please browse these articles from my Salt and Light blog:
