Social media during divorce

Social media is an everyday part of our lives. We share and post about everything–our triumphs and tragedies, our stories and complaints. We follow the daily happenings of hundreds of “friends”, many of whom we barely know. We follow our news sources and get the latest updates. For a lot of us, it’s our connection to the world.

How do seat belts protect in a collision?

You have probably heard that it is important to wear your seat belt. In fact, Georgia and every other state in the country have laws requiring seat belt use. However, it is very common for people to not completely understand why doing so is so important. Once you learn more about how this safety device works, you should then understand why you should always buckle up.

Is it hard to prepare children to welcome an adopted sibling?

The excitement of adopting another child into your family is becoming more evident as you make the final arrangements before welcoming your new child into your family. Fortunately, adopting a child in Georgia can provide a child in need with the chance to be part of a loving family while also giving your family the opportunity to form wonderful new relationships with their adopted family member. 

When can an officer arrest me?

It is a stressful situation when an officer places you under arrest. However, it is also a situation where you must be aware of your rights. That begins with knowing when an officer can arrest you under Georgia law. According to the Georgia Bar Association, officers may arrest someone with a warrant or without a warrant.

Breaking down the Glasgow Coma Scale

No one in Gainesville wants to hear the words "traumatic brain injury" associated with anyone that they know and love. A TBI can leave one completely dependent on the care of others for the rest of their lives. Such care typically includes extensive medical treatment and/or rehabilitation, and may even require family members to quit or change jobs in order to provide continual monitoring and support. Then again, there are also TBI's whose effects are short-term and from which victims can make a full recovery. What worries people is that immediately after one sustains a TBI, it seems impossible to know which outcome will occur.
