What is a postnuptial agreement?

Most people have at least a vague understanding of prenuptial agreements, but many do not know that married couples can also create postnuptial agreements. A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement, with some key differences. In general, postnuptial agreements are less legally binding, but are still valuable for spouses who need to create boundaries or address significant changes in their finances.

Understanding physical and legal custody

When it comes to gaining or losing custody of a child you love, it is important to understand that "custody" is not a single monolithic thing, but rather a term that refers to a number of different types of custody arrangements that can vary greatly. Different types of custody imply different rights and privileges, and understanding the differences is key to creating a truly fair custody plan.

No-fault divorce is not always a simple matter

Just because you want to get divorced doesn't mean it has to be a big messy affair. In fact, in some cases, you and your spouse can file for an uncontested divorce and resolve the matter fairly quickly and simply. Unfortunately, even the simplest of divorces is still a very complex process, so it is rarely wise to attempt to file for divorce without any professional guidance.

What are my options if I refuse a breath test in Mississippi?

There tends to be a lot of misunderstanding about what happens when a person refuses a breath test after a DUI arrest in Mississippi. Make no mistake: Mississippi's "implied consent" law means that your license could be suspended for at least 90 days and up to a year if you refuse a Breathalyzer test.

Do you know when to take a plea bargain?

When it comes to defending against criminal charges, the outcomes are not always a total loss or complete dismissal of all charges. In many cases, the best outcome a person facing criminal charges can expect is some sort of plea bargain. A plea bargain is essentially a compromise by both the prosecution and the defense that lessens the charges, the penalties for the charges or both. However, just because a plea bargain is available does not mean that you should always take it. This is precisely why the quality of your representation is so very important.
