Addiction can become a matter of family law

Georgia families may find themselves facing a problem that continues to plague the nation as a whole. Addiction, considered by many medical professionals to be a disease, can sometimes become a matter of family law. If a person suffering from drug addiction has children, the children may be negatively affected by the actions of the parent, and other family members may face the difficult decision of attempting to take custody of a child. 

Crossing guard suffers serious personal injury

Georgia residents, especially parents, appreciate the often overlooked job of the school crossing guard. Though children may only see their local crossing guard for a few moments each day, the crossing guard is an essential part of school safety. What may appear to be a simple job is actually quite stressful, and crossing guards risk their lives daily to prevent harm to children. A job that entails a human being stepping out onto busy roads to control traffic carries a serious risk of personal injury.

Candidate cites political motives during criminal defense

Even if convicted of a misdemeanor crime, Georgia residents can face serious punishments, including jail time. Recently, a man running for public office found himself needing to present a criminal defense after he was convicted of a first offense DUI. Though he stated he had not consumed any alcohol for several hours prior to driving, a breathalyzer test indicated that he was still slightly over the legal limit, and he was later convicted in court. 

What happens to my license in a DUI arrest?

Among the various penalties that come with charges of driving under the influence, one that most Georgia residents dread is a license suspension or revocation. Having no license means you must find an alternate means of transportation like a bus station or working out a carpool schedule with a friend or co-worker.

Finding relief from creditors through bankruptcy

When a Georgia reader makes the decision to move forward with bankruptcy, he or she likely has many questions regarding what to expect and what the future will look like after the process is complete. It is not easy to make the choice to move ahead with either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but the automatic stay is one of the many benefits this legal process offers to consumers.

More older Americans exploring bankruptcy option

Georgia residents may be among the millions of Americans that consider themselves overwhelmed by personal debt. A recent report shows that more elderly Americans are choosing bankruptcy as a way to escape the burden of financial debt and begin their golden years with a clean slate. Many of these people are facing debt that has mounted over the course of several decades.
