You can get out of debt and live a comfortable future

Debts can become overwhelming, and you may not know where to turn. You know you have options, but knowing which one is best for you is difficult. Fortunately, your attorney can help.

Debts grow over time, and they can weigh you down. The good thing is that even if you've made financial mistakes in the past, you still have a chance to correct them and to have a positive financial outlook for the future. Many options are available, like going through bankruptcy or negotiating with creditors for better rates.

Parenting plans help you lay out your child's schedule

Parenting plans are a required part of custody planning that the courts ask for. The judge wants to know that it's clear where a child will be at any time and that any contingencies have been discussed. It's important that you and you ex-spouse work together to create a plan that works with your schedules and the needs of your child.

There are many different plans you can implement depending on your situation. For example, if you have joint physical custody, you'll need to create a plan where you both have significant time with your child. A 50/50 time-sharing schedule or a 60/40 time-sharing schedule does just that. Sometimes, parents with joint custody choose 70/30 schedules, because it allows the child to have a primary home while spending the other days with the other parent.

New law allows quicker divorces for couples without kids

Couples used to be required to live apart for a year before they could file for divorce. In 2015, a law was passed allowing couples without minor children to forgo this step. Now, they can file relatively quickly if they already have a written agreement about their property division in place. What do you need to consider in your agreement? Here are some of the important points to include.

What are some types of distractions drivers face?

There are many kinds of distracted driving, and many are kinds people don't even recognize. When you think about distracted driving, you probably think about texting or using a cellphone. The fact is that anything that takes your attention off the road is a distraction and can lead to a distracted driving charge.

As a victim of a distracted driver, it's helpful to understand what the person at fault for your accident did wrong. It can help you feel the incident has been resolved and give you the information you need to keep others in your life from making the same mistakes.

How can you avoid bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is sometimes viewed negatively, even though it can be a positive solution to getting out of debt. If you're someone who would rather try anything else except bankruptcy, there are a few different options for you. If those don't meet your needs, it's worthwhile to talk to your attorney about bankruptcy and what it can really do for you.

There are a few main ways to avoid bankruptcy. Probably the most obvious is paying down your debts. You don't necessarily have to pay them in full if you take time to negotiate them. Call your creditor and talk to it about the potential for settling your debts. If you have some money saved, then paying off the debt in bulk at a reduced rate might be possible. Your creditor may also lower your interest rate or payments, helping you get caught up and back on track financially.

Issues that make a child support case more difficult

You believe you have a right to child support, and you're looking into your legal options. That's good. You must keep the child's best interests in mind at all times, and having proper financial compensation to provide for the child is incredibly beneficial.

That being said, there are a few common factors that make some cases more difficult than others. For example, if the other parent lives out of state, it can be hard to track him or her down. This doesn't mean you don't deserve or can't get compensation, but you must be prepared for what the case could entail.

Man faces 50 years for fatal drunk-driving crash

When you're behind the wheel of a car, you take pride in making sure you're paying attention to the road. You don't do things that could distract you while you're behind the wheel, and you focus on getting to where you want to go. Not all drivers are as safe.

Take, for instance, the man in this case. He has pleaded guilty to five counts of negligent manslaughter along with a slew of other charges following an accident that resulted in the deaths of five people. He now faces up to 50 years in prison for the 28 counts he was convicted of.
