What penalties could you face as a repeat DWI offender?

You may consider yourself someone who can drink alcohol responsibly and not let the consumption have any negative impact on your life. However, does that description truly fit your situation? Many people with alcohol abuse issues do not realize they have abuse problems or deny that a problem exists.

Gender, divorce and serious illness

Research may shed a troubling light on how couples in Louisiana interact, especially when it comes to caregiving and illness. When one partner becomes seriously ill, a couple may be more likely to divorce. However, studies indicate that the likelihood of a split only rises when the wife is the one to fall ill. While there are a number of factors that can contribute to the divorce risk, including the existing strength of the relationship and other underlying issues, marital problems are more likely to arise when women are sick.

Common prescription drug offenses

When facing criminal charges, you understand that a conviction can change the trajectory of your life. A mark on your criminal record can affect everything from your ability to get a job to a child custody proceeding, and it is worthwhile to confront any type of charge with a strong defense. This is the case with drug charges, specifically prescription drug charges. 

Ensuring the protection of fathers' parental rights

In a perfect world, couples in Louisiana would be able to end a marriage while still effectively co-parenting for the sake of their children. In the real world, however, this isn't always the case. While there has been more of an effort in recent years to keep things balanced financially and with visitation rights for fathers, an argument can be made that there's still room for improvement. This is, in part, due to a lingering tendency of courts to grant custody to mothers when there's a dispute.
