Drunk driving charges are a serious matter in Alabama, but these allegations can be complicated by additional charges. For instance, if a person is accused of causing an accident while under the influence of alcohol, the accused may face additional criminal charges that have potentially severe consequences. This is apparently the case for an Alabama woman accused of causing a fatal accident.
One of the most difficult and tricky parts of divorce is dealing with property division. Alabama couples have to tackle big decisions, like what to do with the marital house and how to handle retirement savings. These seemingly big decisions can often overshadow less obvious property that count as marital property under family law, including things like credit card reward points.
You are not responsible for another person's driving. You have no say over what another driver is or isn't going to do. This lack of control can leave you at risk for serious injury, especially if the other driver has been drinking.
It might not be uncommon to hear someone say that a dish is so delicious that it would make a person want to slap their grandmother. While this saying generally does not evoke actual violence, two Alabama residents apparently felt this strongly about the food served at an area buffet. A man and a woman involved in an alleged brawl at the restaurant were arrested and now face criminal charges.
Future financial security is a valid concern for those who are considering divorce. For individuals in Alabama who are closing in on retirement, those family law concerns might feel amplified. How will a person survive after splitting retirement assets? Will working past retirement become the new plan? The answers to these questions could lie in Social Security benefits.
