Looking into the consequences of back child support

Those who end their marriage may run into a number of hurdles during and after the divorce process. Aside from strong emotions and legal issues involving their kids, such as custody, the financial impact of a divorce can also affect people years later. For example, child support payments can create challenges for custodial and non-custodial parents alike, and it is pivotal for parents to handle these difficulties appropriately. In this post, we will look over some of the consequences that parents may face when they fall behind on their child support.

Can you keep your ex-spouse from moving away with your kids?

One of the great challenges that you may face following your divorce is maintaining a strong relationship with your children. When you and your ex-spouse share custody (or he or she has sole custody of the kids), your lack of constant access to them can no doubt have an impact on the bond you share. This is true even if they simply live in another home in Wilmington; imagine, then, how much more strained your relationship can become if your ex-spouse chooses to relocate to another city (or another state). Is there anything you can do to prevent this from happening? 

Driving a work vehicle while intoxicated

Often, when people think about drunk drivers they may picture someone who is leaving a bar or getting in the car after drinking too much at home or at a friend or family member’s house. However, there are many different scenarios which involve drunk driving and some occur in the workplace. For example, someone may be pulled over by a law enforcement official and charged with drunk driving while they are operating a company vehicle and performing their job duties. There are a number of things to keep in mind when it comes to work-related DUI charges.

When a car crash keeps you from competing

There are many different consequences that may arise in the wake of a motor vehicle collision, from those which are financial (struggling to pay medical expenses or losing wages because you have to take time off work) to those which are emotional (depression or even anger). Some people are seriously hurt in motor vehicle wrecks and these injuries can do more than prevent them from working. For example, someone may have been training for a competition for months or for years and injuries they suffered in a crash may force them to quit.

Recovering from a construction site accident

People who work in many different fields face a variety of risks each day. At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, we understand that construction workers often find themselves in particularly dangerous situations. If you work in construction in Wilmington, or any other part of North Carolina, you may be exposed to dangerous chemicals, work with certain types of machinery that can lead to a serious injury, be exposed to electricity or work in high spaces, among other hazards. In the event that you are involved in an accident, it is pivotal to make sure that you recover to the best of your ability.
