When someone becomes disabled, their life may unravel in a myriad of ways. They may lose the ability to pursue various dreams and goals, struggle to handle daily responsibilities that arise, become depressed or even be unable to work. For non-custodial parents who have to pay child support, a disability can be especially devastating, and they may worry about how they will fulfill their obligations in this regard. However, it is critical for parents who owe child support to do everything they can to stay caught up, and this may necessitate the modification of a child support order.

However, if it is your fourth offense in 10 years, the state may charge you with a felony.
At times it is difficult to balance the needs of people who rely on emotional support animals in areas such as Georgia and the safety of those around them. The Portland International Airport in Oregon has recently had to revise its regulations in regard to ESAs in an attempt to strike a better balance after an incident in December 2017 in which an emotional support pit bull allegedly attacked a 5-year-old girl. The girl's mother recently filed a lawsuit against the company that manages the airport, the dog's owner and the airline on which she was traveling, seeking damages in the amount of $1.1 million.
