What should and shouldn't I do during a divorce?

You are adult and are entitled to do what you feel you need to do, as long as those actions are within the boundaries of the law. When you are going through a divorce, this is still your right. It might not be the best thing for you to do. Be sure that you think carefully about what you do and don't do if you are going through a divorce because everything might be scrutinized during the process.

How to avoid cellphone distraction while driving

There are numerous sources of driver distractions, but one of big concern in this age of electronic devices is cellphone usage. Almost every state has banned texting while driving, including Tennessee, and some also forbid all use of handheld cellphones. Tennessee may soon join the latter group, reports the Chattanooga Times Free Press, as the House panel passed a bill in early 2016 that would allow ticketing drivers talking on handheld cellphones. Whether or not it becomes law, take these steps to prevent cellphone distractions that could lead to accidents.

Make a game plan for what you will do after a crash

Your nerves are likely to be rattled when you are involved in a car accident. This can make it difficult to remember what you should or shouldn't do after the accident. Because of this, it is best to take a few minutes to refresh your mind about what you should do if you are in an accident so that you can draw on the game plan you have formulated.

Several factors impact a child custody decision

Child custody matters are very serious because the decisions that are made impact the manner in which a child is reared. If it is left to the court to determine child custody issues, instead of the parents coming to an agreement, there are very specific things that the court will consider. Ultimately, the court must create a child custody order that is in the child's best interest.

Understand child custody orders to avoid problems

Having to have your child split his or her time between you and your ex is probably something that you don't want to think about. Most parents want to spend as much time as they can with their children. In the case of parents with a child custody order, following the order is important.
