Don't Let a DUI Charge Ruin Your Holidays
With Christmas and New Years Eve fast approaching, so do the occurrences of DUI arrests. As you make your way home from holiday parties, office events, family gatherings or neighborhood celebrations, be very careful – the police are aggressive this time of year.
The best thing you can do during the holidays is avoid driving if you’ve been drinking alcohol. Driving Under the Influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) is operating a road vehicle after having consumed alcohol beyond legal limits or taking other drugs to the point of being impaired. Being legally intoxicated while operating a vehicle will get you charged with DUI. The threshold is typically with a breath, blood or urine test, where a blood alcohol level exceeds 0.08%. DUI is classified as a criminal charge and can be a misdemeanor or felony.
As friends and family get together for holiday gatherings, it could be difficult to spend these special days without your family. If you are a parent involved in a child custody dispute and need to resolve child custody during a divorce, an experienced family law attorney can help.
Custody decisions often affect a family’s life for a long time. That’s why it is in your best interest to understand your legal rights and speak to a family law attorney who can help you with custody settlements.
One of the blessings of the holidays is to visit family and friends that you don't get to see throughout the year. While it doesn't seem like an ideal topic, estate planning is very important and the holidays are a great opportunity to discuss and review wills and trusts with those you love.
Most people believe that estate planning is only for the wealthy. The truth is, when you or a member of your family die without a will or trust, it can leave assets to be divided and taxed according to federal and state laws. In other words, without estate planning, you don't get to decide how your assets will be distributed and who gets what – the government will step in to make those decisions for you.
