Transgender man claims parental rights after divorce

Family law has changed radically in Virginia since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that same-sex couples have a Constitutional right to get married. While this ruling ushered in a new era when it comes to matrimonial and divorce law in this state, it may not be the end of the matter, because it may have left issues of parenting rights unresolved.

There isn't a one-size-fits all punishment for repeat offenders

No matter where you stand on the issue, everyone can agree that drinking and driving is a problem in our country. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 30 people die every day in the United States in a drunk driving crash. These staggering statistics have left legislators scrambling to find quickly executable solutions. Many times, these solutions include serious penalties for those who drive intoxicated and even stiffer penalties for those who are convicted of repeat DUIs.

There are few things worse than that sinking feeling you get when a police officer charges you with committing a crime. In that moment, you know that your life could change forever, especially if you don't think quickly and obtain legal counsel right away after getting arrested.

What you need to know about your DUI probation

If you're facing your first drunk-driving offense, you may not know that you have options when it comes to the outcome of your case.

New dating app is geared toward divorced singles

Online dating services are big business. Increasingly, companies are specializing in order to help singles narrow down the list of potential mates. There are dating websites for particular religious and ethnic groups, farmers, and even the infamous Ashley Madison, for those looking to date while still married.

Is driving slowly enough reason for a DUI stop in Virginia?

Did you know that Virginia has the third largest state-maintained highway system in the United States? With more than 57,000 miles of roadway, it'd be unrealistic to expect that any single driver knows every mile. It's because of this fact that a majority of drivers drive slower than normal in areas they are less familiar with. But can driving slowly in an area actually lead to a traffic stop? Let's take a look.

Will Taco Bell Cantinas be reason for concern in Virginia?

If you like to follow the news like we do, then you may have already heard about Taco Bell's new restaurant in Chicago, Illinois, that offers a unique menu item: alcohol. The first of its kind in the world, the Taco Bell Cantina offers fast-food eaters a chance to enjoy a glass of wine or beer with their meal. For those willing to pay the additional cost, spirits such as tequila or rum may also be added to a beverage such as the restaurant's signature slushees.

Virginia politician threatens staffer's ex-wife over child support

Child support can be an emotional matter, such as when the custodial parent accuses the noncustodial parent of failing to keep up on payments. Sometimes people lose their temper, which is understandable but rarely helpful. Setting and adjusting child support requires cool heads, when possible.
