Ignoring the road to stare in a rearview mirror

Some of the more commonly-recognized forms of distracted driving include using a cell phone to text, take pictures or browse the web, turning the radio station and eating food while behind the wheel. However, there are many other examples of potentially dangerous distractions that can divert the attention of drivers. In fact, some may not even seem dangerous and may even be connected to safe, responsible driving. For example, using a rearview mirror properly is an important part of safe driving. However, a driver who stares in his or her rearview mirror for too long, for whatever reason, may be more likely to collide with another vehicle or veer off of the road and cause a single-vehicle crash.

Challenging the traditional model of divorce and legal separation

Making the decision to take legal action towards ending a once-loving relationship is not easy. It takes tremendous courage and fortitude to initiate the legal process that you believe will yield a higher return on investment than staying in the relationship. With that said, embarking on the legal path forward also has options that either promotes strife or peace.

Motorcycle accidents during the Fourth of July

Motorcycle crashes happen at all times of year and there are many seasonal hazards, such as ice on the roads in the wintertime, that can make an accident more likely. During the summer months, many people enjoy taking their motorcycles out, especially on the Fourth of July. Although this can be an excellent way to celebrate the holiday, it can also result in a fatal collision or a crash that leaves a motorcyclist with devastating injuries. It is crucial to be vigilant if you plan on riding around the holiday.

Paying child support after a medical emergency

Many people have experienced difficulty paying the child support they owe. Often, people find themselves in this position following the loss of a job or a decrease in their work schedule. However, this is not the only reason parents fall behind on child support. Sometimes, a medical emergency can make it incredibly difficult to stay current on these payments, especially if the health crisis was not anticipated at all. However, it is crucial for a parent who is facing these challenges to know what their options are and stay caught up on their child support obligations.

Opioid use becoming more of a problem on Colorado roads

Signs of suffering from the opioid epidemic are everywhere, and Colorado is no exception. In 2017, 357 residents died from an opioid overdose. Recent attempts to curb opioid abuse in Colorado include a lawsuit against drug companies responsible for marketing opioids to doctors and a $1.8 million campaign to de-stigmatize opioid addiction.

Financial problems and unpaid child support

In a post that was recently published on our blog, we discussed how those with unpaid child support may not be able to receive a passport in the U.S. However, there are many other angles to consider with respect to child support payments and various consequences that parents may face when they fail to meet these obligations. From a financial standpoint, child support can be overwhelming. Not only do parents struggle to stay current after losing a job or suffering a health crisis, but the financial impact of failing to make payments on time can be devastating and make life even harder.

Separation or divorce: What you need to know

In the early days of your relationship, you took pride in knowing everything there was to know about your partner. Now all you know about your partner is that you need space apart. Space can be helpful, and it doesn't mean that you're headed down the path toward legal separation or divorce. Many couples who take a break simply need to spend time away from their partner to remember why they chose them in the first place.

Applying for a passport with back child support

Falling behind on the child support you owe may complicate your life in all sorts of ways. Many people realize the seriousness of the threat of being taken into custody, sustaining damage to one's reputation and financial penalties such as the interception of a tax refund. However, back child support may create a number of other challenges in your life. For example, you may not be able to obtain a passport in the U.S. if you owe a certain amount of unpaid child support.

Can dispute resolution clauses prevent employee litigation?

You want to ensure that your employees have what they need to do their job well, and you want them to be loyal to your Colorado business. You definitely don't want disgruntled employees who will file frivolous lawsuits, wasting your time and money and putting your company's good reputation at risk. Although you cannot keep everyone happy all the time, you can make it difficult for an employee to take you to court over an issue that you could have resolved, had you been given the chance.
