Virginia lawmakers expand sex-offender legislation

As someone facing a sex offender charge, it's important that you understand how you could be affected by the law in ways other than a prison sentence or fines. If you're convicted, you'll be placed on a sex-offender registry, which affects the places you can work or go. It affects the activities you can participate in as well.

Domestic violence accusations require immediate attention

We recently discussed some of the finer points of domestic violence incidents. If you recall, we discussed how not all domestic violence is physical. Other types, including emotional, sexual and financial are also possible. When you are accused of any form of domestic violence, you might find that your life changes dramatically.

Is all domestic violence physical?

As someone who is non-violent and who loves his partner, it's a horrible feeling to know that you've been accused of domestic violence. How could someone accuse you of being violent when you've never touched your partner at all? There are a few things to consider. For one thing, not all domestic violence is violent in nature. Although the terminology suggested that you must be physically abusive to be involved in a domestic dispute, it's not the case at all.

This is how fast your blood alcohol concentration could rise

When you go out to drink with friends, colleagues or on your own, you need to understand how alcohol affects your body. Failing to understand the rate at which your blood alcohol concentration increases puts you at risk of getting drunk. If you decide to drive in that state, then you could be pulled over and arrested for drunk driving.

Keep a clear head and cite laws as you work out the divorce terms

There are many different things that can lead to the end of a marriage. If you are facing a divorce, you have a lot of points to consider. These include who is going to move out of the marital home, where the children are going to live, and who is going to receive what assets.

Domestic violence and same-sex couples

When it comes to domestic violence, one issue that doesn't often come up is the risk of violence among same-sex couples. When you think of domestic violence cases, it's often believed that the man is the abusive partner who is violent toward a female partner. The fact is that anyone can be the victim or the offender in a domestic violence case.

This is how you defend yourself in court

Even an arrest has the possibility of impacting you, even though you have yet to be convicted.Your reputation could be damaged, or you may miss work or be put on probation. You might not be able to participate in social activities or could face backlash from your community. Fortunately, your attorney can help you fight back against unfair charges and arrests, so you can keep your reputation as clean as possible.
