Should you delay divorce and opt for legal separation instead?

Making the choice to end your marriage is not easy. If you made this choice, chances are you have already put significant thought into it, yet you may not feel prepared to head immediately into the divorce process. If you are ready for separate lives, but not quite ready for divorce, you may opt for legal separation. 

Starting summer off with a parenting plan

Whoever said that summertime was for relaxing and living easy must not have been a divorced parent. Once the school year ends, all the rules change. The predictable schedule of school, activities and bed times go out the window, and this often means many changes to the parenting time schedule.

Confronting DUI charges with the right defense strategy

It can be frightening and overwhelming to face criminal charges, even a first-time DUI offense. If you find yourself facing DUI charges, do not underestimate the serious nature of your case and the way it is treated in the court system and through the administrative process. A DUI conviction could lead to penalties that include loss of driving privileges, fines and even time in jail. If you are in this situation, your need for a strong defense plan is real and urgent.

How many people are killed each year in U.S. traffic crashes involving cellphone distraction? It's difficult to say. The federal database that tracks fatal traffic accidents relies on local police to recognize distraction as the cause of a given accident -- but most police reports don't have a box to check when that is the case. In fact, the nonprofit National Safety Council recently estimated that less than half of distraction-related fatalities were coded as such in that federal database.

Study: Tackle football before 12 speeds onset of brain disease

After doctors determined that a series of seemingly minor concussions could cause the degenerative brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the families of 246 deceased football players donated their loved ones' brains for study. That research is taking place at Boston University and the VA Boston Healthcare System.

"Prenup" is no longer a dirty word

What makes for the perfect proposal? For starters, it’s the person you’re with. Love, kindness and trust, as well as shared goals, values and interests. A romantic setting is probably high up there, too. Maybe a trip to the ocean or a mountain hike. A ring is likely. But a prenup?

Feds increasingly cracking down on illegal possession of firearms

A year ago, a man stood outside of an Alabama church begging police to kill him. His wife said he had been suicidal and had held a gun to his head earlier so she had hidden the gun in the church. The police arrested the unarmed man and retrieved the gun.
