Florida doctor arrested on drunk driving charges

Drunk driving charges can have a serious personal and professional impact on an accused individual. In a Florida community a couple hours east of the Okaloosa area a doctor was recently arrested on drunk driving charges following a crash with a local sheriff's vehicle. A representative for the doctor noted that the crash occurred at low speeds in bumper-to-bumper traffic and was with an unmarked sheriff's pickup truck.

Understanding legal custody and your legal rights as a parent

When a Florida couple decides to divorce, it is often most difficult for the youngest members of the family. Children are resilient, but they still feel the impact of their parents' decision to end the marriage. For this reason, parents work hard to minimize the negative impact that their divorce will have on the kids.

Property division basics in Florida

Property division is a significant portion of what must be determined during the divorce process. Property division can have a significant impact on the future finances of both parties. It can be a complex process and requires an accounting and valuation of all the assets and debts of the couple. In Florida, property is divided according to equitable division principles.

Medical expenses and child support obligations

This blog recently discussed the serious consequences associated with failing to pay child support. In addition to the responsibility to pay child support, parents are also responsible for their children's medical expenses. The potential penalties for failure to pay medical expenses are the same as those for failure to pay child support and can include wage garnishment, tax intercepts, suspension of a business or occupational license, contempt of court or even possible time in jail.

Former running back jailed in for failure to pay child support

The consequences for failure to pay child support in Florida can be harsh. A former NFL running back was recently jailed in Florida for failure to pay child support. The former New England Patriots running back turned himself in and was released from jail 17 hours later after he paid a "cash purge" of $7,924. The court will hold an individual for failure to pay child support on a "cash purge" until a determined amount is paid in lieu of bond. Although the amount of child support due is unknown, after paying the $7,924 the former running back was released.
