What are roadside sobriety tests?

Drivers in Florida may have seen DUI tests being executed while driving down their local roads: individuals walking in lines, standing on one foot or looking at the flashlights of law enforcement officials. These seemingly random acts are a series of sobriety tests that can be used to attempt to determine when drivers are intoxicated. They are often called roadside or field sobriety tests and they are generally executed as three distinct assessments.

Is requiring renters insurance a good idea?

If you own commercial property, chances are you network with other property owners in your area of Florida. In your talks with these men and women, you may have heard upsetting accounts of landlords facing financial burdens following a devastating incident such as a fire, flood or storm. When tenants suffer losses in these disasters, the landlord may feel compelled to step in and help, or the tenant may file a lawsuit that results in even more financial loss to the landlord.

Ending the cycle of child support payment delinquencies

If a parent does not live with their child due to a divorce or separation, then they may not have the opportunity to offer vital resources to their children on a daily basis. When it comes to financial matters, non-custodial parents in Florida can be asked to provide their kids with child support through either court orders or agreements with the kids' other parents.

Back to school may mean back to court to change custody schedules

When children return to school in the fall, parents can be both relieved and concerned about the coming months of their lives. On one hand, Florida parents may be excited to have their children back to learning and building their educational bases. On the other hand, they may be concerned about helping their children stay motivated, active and involved in the many activities that often accompany the start of the new academic year.

What is virtual visitation?

When two people who have children go through a divorce they have many important decisions to make regarding how they will share in the duties of raising their kids to adulthood. Sometimes, the process is straightforward and the parents are able to successfully co-parent their children. In other cases, barriers may exist that make sharing time and decision-making power over the kids a challenge.

Changes to the law may impact when some choose to divorce

This year the federal government passed an overhaul of the tax laws and those changes could have big consequences on individuals who may wish to divorce in the future. One of the ways that the changes to the tax laws may affect divorcing parties is through new provisions that prevent alimony payers from deducting their payments from income taxes.
