Military members: Seek legal help with a DUI charge

Drunk driving is a serious charge. If you're a member of the military, though, the repercussions could be even more serious.

Military members who are accused of DUI on a military base could face a court martial or an Article 15, which means a commander can enforce discipline without a court-martial hearing. If you're charged with DUI off post, you also can face punishment. Whether an on-base or off-base arrest, a commander could require you to complete an alcohol treatment program or receive extra duty. Or, you even could have a reduction in grade or be barred from reenlisting.

Military divorce has special considerations

Getting divorced involves making lots of decisions and coming to agreements with your soon-to-be former spouse. Child custody, spousal support, property division and visitation are among the issues you'll have to determine. And when you're a member of the military, things can become a tad more complicated.

Both federal and state laws come into play when military members divorce. State law can impact child support and spousal support, for instance. Federal laws can affect the jurisdiction that hears the divorce case and the division of military pensions.

Teen killed, another injured in Georgia crash; driver arrested

One high school student in Cherokee County, Georgia, was killed and another seriously injured in a single-car crash recently. The driver of the car, their 17-year-old classmate, was arrested and faces a number of charges, including first-degree vehicular homicide.

The crash occurred when four teenagers, students at Creekview High School in Canton, Georgia, were in the car, which was traveling on Old Orange Mill Road. The car struck a tree after it went down an embankment; investigators preliminarily said speed could have been a reason for the wreck.

Building a claim after a commercial truck accident

Commercial trucks are some of the largest and most destructive vehicles on the road today, and when consumer drivers are involved in truck accidents, the results are often devastating. If you experienced a commercial truck accident recently, you may have serious injuries and property damage, which is a huge concern that probably overshadows many areas of your life. This is common, particularly for those who suffer injuries that make them unable to keep working.

Truck accident victims face a difficult journey on the way to physical and financial recovery, even when there is little or no confusion about which party is liable. Even if the consumer driver is not at fault, filing a truck accident claim is significantly more complicated than pursuing most accidents among consumer vehicles.
