Property settlement dispute hinges on frozen embryos

The vast majority of divorcing couples in Illinois can conclude asset division through either mutual negotiations or a slightly more guided route, such as mediation.

Although heading to court over divorce issues is not a totally uncommon occurrence, an out-of-state couple has garnered national attention for their contention over a somewhat surprising part of their assets.

Date of Jennifer Garner's divorce filing likely no accident

While there might be no such thing as a standard prenuptial agreement, many address the same concerns -- asset division and protection, inheritances, and even future spousal support or alimony.

The recent divorce filing between actress Jennifer Garner and her husband, Ben Affleck, could demonstrate just how uniquely useful these types of documents can be.

The chances of tech-lovers and smart phone owners having something like this are fairly high, and as it turns out, they are being used for more than just fitness tracking and other intended uses. Data collected from these apps is now popping up in divorce filings all over the state of Illinois.
