Consider the impacts of a domestic violence conviction

It is no secret that domestic violence charges are very serious charges that can have some very serious impacts on your life. The most serious of these is that you might be ordered to stay away from certain family members. This might even include your spouse and children. We know how difficult that might be, but that isn't the only way that your life might be affected by these charges.

Civil commitment: The same as supervised release in Virginia?

If you've been convicted of a felony in the past or have been on a sex offender registry, you know that you lost your right to vote when you were in prison. As a way of helping you merge back into society after being imprisoned or convicted, Governor Terry McAuliffe made a decision to restore the voting rights of over 200,000 convicted felons in Virginia. That included people who had completed their incarceration, parole, probation or supervised release. Your attorney may have more information on if you've been granted your rights back as well.

Rappers indicted for part in alleged drug distribution ring

Sometimes, having drug paraphernalia and making videos referring to drug distribution can get you into trouble. While rap is a kind of music that often talks about drugs and abuse, if you're being investigated for drug crimes, it can be damaging to your reputation. Your defense attorney can help you fight charges, like the attorney in this story is doing.

Military divorces can be complex and tricky

Being in the military means that you have taken on more responsibility than many others. Your relationships likely take a backseat to your duties. This can be hard on your marriage. If you are in the military and facing a divorce, you should make sure that you understand how a divorce can affect you.

Filing for divorce: No fault and fault options in Virginia

If you're ready to get a divorce, you want to know exactly what you need to do to make it happen as quickly as possible. With the help of your attorney, you can be sure that your documents are all filed correctly, but which laws designate how quickly you can get a divorce and what kinds of reasoning can you give for your divorce?

What is a per se driving under the influence law?

A per se law in a DUI case means that once a person is tested and is found to have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher, no other evidence is needed to show that the person was intoxicated by law. In the United States, every state follows this rule, and if you are stopped with a BAC of 0.08, no other evidence will be needed to charge you with driving under the influence.

Child custody modifications are sometimes necessary

Remember what it was like when you were going through the process of coming to an agreement with your ex about child custody matters? If you are like most, you probably remember a stressful situation. You probably don't want to have to go through that again; however, if you find that the child custody agreement isn't working for your child any longer, you might have to go back to the drawing board.

Captain of fire and EMS department arrested on drug charges

Drug charges can sometimes seem to come out of nowhere. Perhaps you take prescription drugs and had an extra prescription, so it appeared you were shopping for doctors to obtain more to sell, or maybe you had someone riding in your car who left narcotics behind that you didn't know about. Whatever the cause is for your drug charges, it's important to make sure you defend yourself from the moment you're arrested.
