Family law: what if co-parenting isn't right for my family?


Though a couple may have similar ideals when they get married to one another in Texas, over time the couple may drift apart for various reasons and decide that they can no longer continue their relationship. There are a number of family law issues that arise when a couple is going through a divorce, but one of the most difficult aspects is of deciding custody and visitation with regards to children.

Motorcycle accident in Texas kills two


When one talks of motorcycle accidents, one of the most common causes of them is when a motorist fails to yield to the motorcyclist. This means that when a driver is making a left-hand turn at an intersection, he probably did not see the motorcyclist and did not accommodate them. This is one very common cause of crashes between motorists and motorcyclists and the result is often deadly -- motorcycles offer very little, if any, protection in the event of a crash.

Can I plea bargain for drunk driving charges?


Some people in Texas do not think twice before getting behind the wheel after having a drink or two, not realizing that they might have had enough alcohol to render them legally intoxicated. Depending on how long it has been since a person consumed alcohol, how much someone ate while drinking, their size and their tendency to digest alcohol, everyone's system is different and can be affected by alcohol differently. This means it may take more for a tall heavy man to cross the legal limits of intoxication than it would a short thin woman.

What to expect if you get pulled over after drinking at the lake

The weather is warming up, and you are ready to head out to the lake with your friends. Maybe you are planning to drink alcohol while you are out for the day or weekend. While there is certainly no harm in drinking with your friends–if you are of legal age–you should certainly not drink and drive afterward.

Why are trucking accidents still prevalent?

Due to their immense sizes and weights, trucks have the potential to cause a lot of damage if involved in a crash. Unfortunately, it seems these collisions are only going to get worse. According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck crashes increased by 2 percent between 2012 and 2013, which is the last year information was available.

Your vehicle accident injuries and losses may be compensable


Vehicle accidents happen on Texas roads and highways each and every day. Even when drivers take necessary precautions and utilize the safety equipment found in their cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles they may still suffer injuries and losses if they sustain injuries in their crashes. Their passengers may also get hurt in negligent or reckless drivers cause them to be involved in automobile incidents and as a result the losses that victims can incur from these often preventable occurrences can be very high.

Is nesting a good child custody arrangement for your divorce?

One custody option that is becoming more popular in Texas is nesting. Nesting allows your kids to continue living in the marital home while you and your former partner take turns living there. Instead of shuffling your children back and forth to two different homes, they can remain in one. You may be wondering if this type of arrangement can work for your situation. It is beneficial for some families who want to minimize their kids' exposure to the number of changes that occur during their divorces. However, it is not ideal for all child custody arrangements
