Different forms of conduct may constitute reckless driving

Reckless driving is a serious traffic violation and may lead to significant criminal sanctions if a Virginia resident is convicted on their charges. While most readers may understand reckless driving involves operating one's vehicle at a high rate of speed, reckless driving can mean more than just excessive speeding. Reckless driving may be charged when a driver is suspected of driving in such a manner as to have no regard for the consequences of their actions.

How reliable are blood-alcohol results?

A DUI arrest may seem like a common occurrence in Virginia, but if you are the one in the back of the police car, it can be traumatic and confusing. Whether you had a couple of beers or you know you are completely sober, you may have little control over what happens when police pull you over.

How to respond after being placed on probation

A sentence of probation undoubtedly came as a great relief to you and your family. Instead of serving your sentence behind bars, you can remain at home and continue your life with some important restrictions. You may be allowed to continue working at your job or search for meaningful work. When you have completed your sentence in a few months or years, everything can go back to normal.

Is alimony ever paid all at once?

Like child support and custody, alimony is an important legal matter that is associated with divorce proceedings. Only when two people decide to end their marriage will they determine with their divorce court if alimony is appropriate for them. In Virginia and jurisdictions throughout the nation, alimony is spousal support that one former martial partner may have to pay to the other to provide them with needed financial assistance in their post-divorce life.
