DUI expungement in Virginia: challenging but not impossible

The famous English poet Alexander Pope once proclaimed that "to err is human, to forgive divine definition. All people commit sins and make mistakes." While this certainly applies in a religious setting, one can't help but see its application to people who have broken the law and are now facing criminal charges as a result.

Tension between parents often leads to child custody disputes

When parents share child custody, or one parent has custody and the other has visitation rights, it will be necessary at some point to move the child from one parent to the other. These “swaps” happen every day in Virginia. In theory, a parent with visitation rights is entitled to spend time with his or her child, regardless of any disputes he or she has with the custodial parent, such as allegedly unpaid child support.

Is a personal Breathalyzer your ticket to avoiding a felony DUI?

Most people who live here in Virginia know that the courts in our state take drunk driving very seriously. From fines to imprisonment, a person convicted of driving while under the influence of alcohol faces a challenging road ahead because not only will that conviction stay on their criminal record, it can actually cause further legal problems down the road.

What is the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program?

According to the state of Virginia, 86 percent of all criminal activity is related to alcohol or drugs. As a result of that belief, the state has been working hard to reduce those behaviors since at least 1966, when the MANN Commission was formed to assess accepting funding through the Federal Highway Safety Act of 1966.

Bigamy voids a Virginia marriage, and it's also a crime

Back in October, Virginia joined the several U.S. states in which same-sex marriage is legal, following a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court not to hear an appeal of a lower court decision that overturned the state’s ban. Of course, same-sex couples looking to get married must follow the same rules as everybody else, in order for their marriage to be valid.

Planning summer parties? Do your part to prevent drunk driving

Virginia has some of the toughest DUI laws in the nation, including membership in a regional strike force that holds sobriety checkpoints every week. What we don't have in our drunk-driving laws is a process for holding alcohol providers financially responsible for negligence when the people they serve go out and injure others in drunk-driving accidents.
