Factors to consider when drafting a parenting plan

The terms of your parenting plan will have a significant and lasting impact on your life and the lives of your children. It is in your interests to ensure that the terms are fair and sustainable and will allow your kids to have security and stability well into the future. There are certain steps you can take to ensure that all final agreements are practical and beneficial. 

Defending against a DWI charge

Driving while intoxicated is against the law in all 50 states. In North Carolina, if your blood alcohol content is .08% or higher, your judgment is considered impaired, and you may lose your license, receive a fine or get jail time if arrested. At The Law Office of L. Bryan Smith, P.C. we have experience representing clients accused of driving under the influence.

Rotational and weekly schedules may help with joint custody

Now that you are going through divorce, you may want to make the process as easy on your children as possible. Because of this desire and your ability to work well with the other parent, you may believe that joint custody will work best for your situation. If the other parent agrees, you could avoid long, drawn-out custody proceedings in court.

Can men be victims of domestic violence?

The widespread public perception is that, in cases of domestic violence, a man is always the aggressor and a woman always the victim. However, if you are a man who has sustained abuse from a female partner in North Carolina, you are not alone. According to FindLaw, research suggests that numbers of women and men committing violence or abuse against the other gender are almost equal with one another, which means that women abuse men nearly as often as men abuse women in a domestic setting.
