Things to consider about divorce and domestic violence

If you are a victim of domestic violence, one of the most challenging decisions you may ever have to face is divorcing your spouse. Many people who have suffered at the hands of their partners are often afraid to leave them. The trauma of everything endured can make the divorce process more stressful and devastating than it should be. 

How alcohol use can lead to car accidents

All too often, people do not weight the effects of alcohol consumption before deciding to drink and drive. As dangerous as the behavior can be, many do not believe each glass of beer, wine and alcohol they consume affects their driving behaviors. 

Divorcing a spouse with mental illness

Divorce is painful, frightening and overwhelming for any couple. Adding mental illness into the equation only makes the situation more complex. You may fear judgment from loved ones or feel guilt due to wanting to break the vow to be there in sickness and in health.

The hidden dangers that distracted drivers pose

You likely see distracted drivers on many types of roadways: interstates, bustling city streets and lonely country lanes. The most obvious symptom that someone is driving distracted tends to be the fact that he or she is on a cell phone, which Maryland law forbids. However, many types of distraction exist. Even daydreaming during a boring stretch of road is a distraction, as it makes the driver less aware of the surroundings and less capable of reacting quickly and appropriately should something occur.

3 important factors in Maryland child custody cases

As you go through divorce, one of the most pressing issues on your mind is child custody. How much will you get to see your child? Will you get sole, joint or no custody? Regardless of your marital problems, you still love your child and want to be an involved parent. While it is impossible to predict how a judge will rule in your custody case, you can get an idea by knowing the judge has the best interests of your child in mind.

What to do when you are afraid of your spouse

The foundation of any successful marriage is a combination of love, trust and respect. Unfortunately, these feelings can sometimes transform into aggression and even violence. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women has experienced violence at the hands of an intimate partner. If you are one of these people or afraid you might become one, you are not alone, and you can get help.
