Back child support and your passport

People often realize that failing to pay child support can lead to many different hardships in life, from those which are financial (tax refund interception, etc.) to being arrested. However, there are a number of other ways that back child support can derail your plans and turn your life on end. For example, you could be unable to obtain a passport if your unpaid child support exceeds a certain amount. It is important to be aware of the different ways in which your life could be upended if you fail to stay caught up on your child support obligations and go over your options in the event that you do fall behind.

Legal action against a business owner after a traffic crash

Business owners are taken to court for countless reasons. Sometimes, litigation is centered around disputes with competitors, such as allegations of a breach of contract, for example. Others may involve employees, such as claims that overtime was denied, and an employee may also decide to take their case to court after they are hurt in a traffic collision that took place on the job. Lawsuits as well as the hardships that car accident victims face highlight how essential it is to prevent motor vehicle accidents from occurring on the job. However, more workers will continue to sustain injuries and pass away in the years ahead.

On a pub crawl? Be careful when walking after drinking.

The Colorado drivers’ handbook

To inform motorists about the rules of the road and best practices for safe driving, Colorado maintains a new drivers’ handbook. Yet this handbook is useful for both new and experienced drivers.

Are non-compete agreements enforceable in Colorado?

After working as an employee in Broomfield for years, you have finally summoned up the courage to band together with a few fellow colleagues and form your own business. Yet as you are preparing to leave the office on your last day, your now former boss asks you what your plans are. After you inform him or her of your intentions, he or she politely yet in a matter-of-fact manner reminds you that you signed a non-compete agreement when you were initially hired. Does this now throw a wrench in your plans? 

Technology and distracted driving

Many different distractions can create dangers on the road, prompting a driver to swerve into another lane or collide with a vehicle in front of them because they are not paying attention. In the digital era, there are even more distractions that divert the attention of drivers, including smartphones, handheld devices, GPS systems and so on. Drivers may use these devices to watch videos, capture content, communicate with others or even get directions. Sadly, they can lead to a deadly crash.
