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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
