Does a divorce negatively influence a child?

Children are often a concern when you go through a divorce for a number of reasons. A child may not understand the full implications of a divorce, and you want to make sure your little one is happy and comfortable. Some people decide to stay in an unhappy marriage for the benefit of their children, but the truth is that you can raise a child even if you do go through a divorce.

Understanding a preliminary hearing

When you're accused of a crime, one of the first things you have to do is have a hearing. While an initial hearing might not do much, it can be an important time in your case. If you potentially have to go to trial, one of the first court appearances you'll go to is a preliminary hearing. This hearing is similar to an arraignment in that the judge hears the defendant's plea. Additionally, the judge can decide at this point if there is enough evidence to move forward with the case. If there is not, then the case may be dismissed at this point. If there is enough evidence, then the next step is a standard trial.

Family abuse: You can defend yourself against allegations

Family abuse can be defined in many ways, but generally speaking, it involves any act in which force, violence or threats result in physical injury or the fear of physical injury against someone in your household. Family household members include anyone you live with in your home and anyone you have lived with within the last year. Children of those you lived with as well as ex-spouses and spouses may also be victims of family abuse.
