Should I stay friends with my divorcing spouse?

It's very common for married couples to stop being in a romantic relationship but to continue being friends. There does not always need to be conflict, toxicity and negativity in a marriage in order for a divorce to be necessary. Sometimes, married couples simply grow apart and want to live separate lives.

While you may still be friends with your ex, the fact is that you still need to go through the process of divorce, which can be grueling. Many people going through a divorce receive advice from well-meaning friends and family warning of them of the dangers of being too friendly with their ex. Before planning your divorce, it is important that you are aware of how your relationship with your ex could impact your divorce settlement.

Joint custody offers many benefits to the child

If you’re divorcing or separating from the mother of your children, you’re probably concerned with how often you’ll see your children now. You may have heard that courts always favor the mother in custody disputes and this makes you uneasy. While the thought of not seeing your child as often as you’d like understandably makes you uneasy, Kentucky handles child custody differently.

Kentucky lawmakers passed a law in 2017 that made joint custody the default decision in custody decisions. Lawmakers felt that it was in the best interest of children to have both parents involved in their lives.

Who is responsible when a child is injured on a bounce house?

Renting a bounce house can be a great way to celebrate a child's birthday. Bounce houses can be a fun activity for kids of all ages, and they are a great form of exercise. However, they can pose some risks, just as all physical activities can.

If you are worried about the safety of bounce houses or if your child was injured when using a bounce house at a party, it is important that you understand how the law works. The following is some key information about the possible responsible parties following a bounce house injury.

Bicyclists are expected to obey the rules of the road

Bicycling is a popular activity because meets many needs. It can be recreation, exercise or even transportation. However, bicycling can be dangerous.

Almost 800 bicyclists in the United States were killed in traffic collisions in 2017. While many of those collisions were caused by the reckless actions of motorists, there are some steps you can take to help ensure you stay safe on your bike ride.

How can I prove fault under the Jones Act?

Unfortunately, seamen and river workers are not protected under workers' compensation if they are injured at work. This leads to many injured river workers believing that they are unable to recoup damages as a result. However, maritime workers do have the opportunity to gain financial compensation after a work-related injury in certain situations.

The Jones Act makes it possible for maritime workers to claim compensation for injuries that occurred at work. Injured maritime workers are able to actually sue their employers for negligence after an injury, and if they are successful in this, they will be able to claim back more compensation than in a typical workers' compensation claim. However, the fault must be proven in order to be successful.

Dealing with a divorce dilemma

Making a decision about whether or not to file for divorce can be one of the hardest decisions that you will ever have to make. When you got married, you made a commitment to stand by each other through the good times and the bad. However, you may have witnessed traits in your partner that you simply cannot accept, or they may have behaved in ways that you can't forgive.

It is important that you do not file for a divorce onia impulse. Instead, you should engage in careful reflection. You should also consider the ways that divorce will likely affect you in months and years to come. The following are some things to consider before taking action.

Can a shop be liable for overcrowding?

At peak times, shopping malls can become overcrowded. Seasonal sales including Black Friday can cause huge amounts of people to frequent a specific shop. This can make it difficult for customers to move around the shopping mall safely, and this can cause injuries.

If you have been injured in a shopping mall, and you believe that the cause was overcrowding, it may be possible to hold the shopping mall or retail company liable. This is because all premises owners have the duty to do what is reasonably possible to ensure the safety of all visitors. In many cases, it would be reasonable for stores to deny entry to visitors when the store has reached full capacity.

Safety advances can make your bus ride safer

How often do you use public transportation? Whether you catch the bus for your daily commute or just for special occasions, it’s likely you’re a public transportation user at some point.

People view vehicles like buses as cost effective as well as eco-friendly. But what about safety? Few bus makers include as much as seatbelts for basic safety features.
