2 key considerations for an amicable divorce with kids

Contrary to common belief, money is not the root of all contention in some San Antonio divorce cases. Child custody, visitation and support are major sources of conflict that can make the proceedings challenging to navigate if one or both parents are not entirely vested in their children’s best interests. 

Fatal Texas semi crash sends 7 to hospital

Truck accidents can cause a great deal of damage due to the size of the vehicle. Multi-vehicle crashes can be similarly devastating because of the number of people involved. Therefore, it follows that a multi-vehicle accident that involves one or more 18-wheelers can be particularly devastating, and such was the case in Weatherford, Texas, when a semi-truck collided with several cars on a Friday afternoon. The crash sent seven people to the hospital, resulted in the death of one vehicle occupant and caused the semi to roll over and spill its cargo of plastic Gatorade bottles onto the roadway.

The risk of an accident following a breakup

Drivers can become emotionally distressed for countless reasons, whether they just found out that they lost their job, or they are worried about an upcoming move to a new home.

When these hardships arise, drivers may be more likely to cause a collision.

How can child support modifications be requested and approved?

Divorced couples in Texas may find that over time, their needs, income and situations change, but the responsibility of caring for children remains. When the custodial or physical parent needs an adjustment made to child support, there is a process to go through to get what they need to handle the everyday living needs of their children. For those parents whose jobs have changed and they may be making less money and want to request a change to the amount they are paying, there is also a process to go through, according to the Attorney General of Texas.

Are hands-free cellphones a safe option for drivers?

Although it is not illegal for you to use a hand-held cellphone while driving in Texas, many states have banned this practice because of its deadly consequences. As a result, many people have started using hands-free cellphones while behind the wheel to limit their risk of becoming involved in a deadly car accident. Yet, studies show that using a hands-free cellphone to talk to friends or family while operating a vehicle may not be the safest option.
