How a child abduction by a family member is investigated

A missing child is defined specifically by a law passed in 1982, the Missing Children's Act. That law says that any person who is under 18 years old is missing when his or her whereabouts are not known to the child's legal custodian. However, the law also states that the circumstances of the child's disappearance must be indicative of the child being removed from the legal custodian's care without his or her consent, or the case must indicate that the child is being sexually exploited or abused.

Will your property be taxed when it is divided?

As you and your spouse divide your property, you may end up "gaining" assets. This is because your assets are typically split fairly evenly, so, if your spouse was actually earning more than you were, you could end up with more money than you earned after the division. You could also end up with assets that you thought of as belonging to your spouse more than they did to you, because the court sees everything as belonging to both of you.
