The use of search warrants in Virginia drunk-driving cases

Most people, whether they've had a run in with the law or not, know that our legal system is incredibly complex. Filled with thousands of statutes and regulations spanning across state and federal jurisdiction lines, it's not always easy to keep everything straight or know when you are violating the law.

Can asthma affect your ability to use ignition interlocks?

It's not often that we ask our Virginia readers to consider criminal cases in other states. That's because, as you're probably already be aware, each state has the authority to enforce its own laws. This means that what applies in one state may not necessarily apply in another.

Divorce rate decreases with age at nuptials -- to a point

Love may find you at any age. Unmarried people should not assume they will be single for life, if they do not want to be. In fact, getting married too young has been associated with higher divorce rates. However, a new university study suggests that getting married later in life also can be risky.

Watch out drivers, Virginia has some strict DUI laws

In a study conducted by the personal finance website WalletHub, Virginia ranked in the top 10 for states with the strictest DUI enforcement laws.

For those of our Leesburg readers who have encountered our DUI laws, this statistic is hardly surprising.

3 situations that can force a change in child support

When it comes to child support, the paying spouse may think that he or she is locked into an ironclad agreement that will never be changed under any circumstance. The monthly figure you pay will be your responsibility until the support agreement is fulfilled, and that's just the way it is.

Self-driving cars and the unique problem they create for DUI laws

The discussion regarding self-driving cars has taken a shift in the last few years. No longer are people asking if they will become a reality. Now people are wondering when they will become a reality. This is thanks in part to the push from Google to develop and test the first self-driving car on actual streets, which is a technological achievement some of our Leesburg readers may be quite excited about.

Things you may not know about Virginia's DUI laws

If there are two things that just about everyone knows about drunk-driving charges it's 1.) a BAC of .08 or higher is illegal here in Virginia, and 2.) multiple DUI convictions can lead to felony charges of worsening severity.
