With school back in session, alcohol dangers abound

There is an annual tradition at the University of Virginia that is known not only to its first-year college attendees but also to locals and students from other colleges as an event not to miss. This fall festivity is a drunken first weekend back at school known as the "Wertland Block Party" and, as the name indicates, it takes place on Wertland Street, near the college campus. Because the party comes with such raucous behavior, the college is cautioning its students and coordinating efforts with those of law enforcement and landlords of the houses on the street as well as the fire department.

How divorced parents may pay for a child's sports dreams

Many Virginia parents want their kids to dream big. However, if they dream of being Olympic champions or even just getting to higher levels in their chosen sport, parents may find that the costs increase. If the parents are divorced, paying the additional coaching and lesson fees can be very difficult.

Stiff penalties face allegedly drunk driver

There are few things scarier than being arrested and charged for a crime you did not commit. However, if you ever find yourself arrested and charged for a crime you actually did commit, but don't necessarily remember, it may even be worse. It may not be your worst nightmare now, but if it ever were to happen to you, you would likely agree that you were living in your own worst nightmare.

What happens to my vehicle after a DUI arrest?

When you are arrested for an alcohol-related charge, you may wonder just what will happen in terms of your future and the charges against you. You may also wonder what will happen in the immediate future when you are released.

What to know about wage garnishment in Virginia

A wage garnishment is an order for an employer to withhold a certain portion of an employees paycheck. The money that is withheld goes to a creditor, a tax authority or any other entity that is owed money. Typically, wage garnishment is used to repay tax debt or other debts owed to the government. Wage garnishment is regulated in part by Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act.

Help when times get tough

There are few things more emotionally daunting than an arrest and subsequently, charges brought against you for something did without malicious intent. For instance, when most people faces criminal charges stemming from driving after drinking, their entire world is turned upside down and the fear of what is known and what is unknown can be paralyzing. This is unfortunate as time is of the essence and the clock is ticking on making major moves that can be major game-changers over the course of the next few months and even years.

Practice what you preach

It turns out police are not immune. Although the almost inhumane treatment you may have been given while you were incarcerated made you feel like you were dirt on the shoe of the police officers, it is not unrealistic to assume that many of them have been guilty of at least the crime you are charged with. While there will likely never be statistics to prove it, a good number of police officers drink alcohol when off duty and some of them, feeling immune to the law, may even choose to drive.
