Canadian boxing legend George Chuvalo has been married to his second wife, Joanne, for 25 years. But George's two children say that it's time for the relationship to end. Because George is mentally incapacitated, the kids have power of attorney, and they tried, unsuccessfully, to use that power to obtain a divorce for their dad.

Family lawyer Laura Paris talks about the specifics of this unique case, and explains why it's unlikely that an adult child could force a divorce between parents.
