Will you face unique financial issues during your gray divorce?

Divorce can be emotionally devastating. But if you’re not prepared for it, splitting up during your senior years can be a financial shock, too.

A rise in divorces among older couples — dubbed “gray divorces” — has cast a spotlight on the notion that most women are fiscally unprepared for a breakup. Even if you are not facing a divorce, you should be familiar with the household finances.

College kids and academic consequences of underage consumption

Sending your child to college can be scary. There are many factors you have to consider when your child moves out of the house and starts a life on their own.

Alcohol could play a role in your child’s new life. It could be a cause for concern, especially when it comes to your child’s academic career. Underage consumption in college, while common, is a serious offense. Most colleges have policies regarding underage drinking and they are generally in line with federal and state laws.

Are Stores Always Responsible For a McKinney Slip and Fall?

McKinney slip and fall accidents often occur in improperly maintained grocery stores. The store is usually held liable, but not always.

Alcohol Abuse and Your College Kid

The day your child was accepted into a college program was a day full of pride and joy. You are happy with their achievement, and are excited to see them continue to grow into a successful young adult. When summer ended, you dropped your kid off at school, helping them haul their belongings into their dorm room. When it was time to leave, you enveloped them into a hug and told them to study hard.

Now that they have been at school all year, and summer is about to begin again, you have some worries. You know that college brings new opportunities, and that partying is among those experiences. As the semesters changed and the year progressed, your child checked in as you'd hoped, but now you want to make sure that partying hasn't turned into something more.

What If The Other Driver Lies About A Car Accident?

Conflicting Stories Are Common After Car Accidents.

Even if they're clearly at fault, drivers hate to admit that they've erred after a car accident. Psychologically it is hard for people to take responsibility.  Many car insurance companies also advise their policy holders to never accept responsibility under any circumstances.  Unfortunately, the evidence in your case may not point strongly in your favor. As a modified comparative negligence state, Texas allows both parties to be held partially liable; it is therefore crucial that you get your story straight.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

As the weather warms up in April, more people hit the road. Whether this means heading south for spring break or partaking in local outdoor activities, more people are on the go and there is more highway traffic. April isn’t just a seasonal turning point, though. The National Safety Council has dubbed it “Distracted Driving Awareness Month.”

Most people are already aware that drivers are frequently on their phones. What they may not be aware of is that, according to software developer TrueMotion, 92 percent of drivers use their phone while driving. Seventy-one percent text while driving. These numbers are frightening. When a driver is distracted by their phone, they aren’t fully tuned to the road in front of them.
