Tips for a single parent creating an estate plan

For some single parents of minor children in Virginia, the other parent may still be a part of the child's life and may be the best choice for the child to live with if the custodial parent dies. However, single parents should still consider appointing alternate guardians in case the other parent cannot step into this position for some reason. This can be done as part of an overall estate plan.

How the courts factor living accommodations in custody cases

Child custody can be one of the most difficult issues that parents face, especially if both parents want sole custody or one parent has primary custody but has become unable to properly care for the children. However, parents seeking custody should be aware that the parent's living accommodations are often a significant factor in determining whether or not the court will grant the parent custody.

Why estate planning is important

Many people in Virginia feel uncomfortable with estate planning for an array of reasons. It makes people think about their own death, and it can also bring up difficult family relationships. Some people may have superstitions about how thinking about death can bring it on. Of course, the process can also involve challenging decisions about the financial future. Still, making an estate plan is an important part of planning successfully for the future.

How some breath tests may react to a low-carb diet

Some people in Virginia have medical conditions that may cause false positives on a breath test for blood alcohol content. An attorney for a man in Texas got the man's DUI charge dropped because the man was in ketosis from his low-carb diet. In ketosis, people may breathe out isopropyl alcohol. Not all breath tests can tell the difference between isopropyl and ethanol alcohol. Diabetes and GERD are among the other conditions that could cause a false positive for similar reasons.
