Implied consent and chemical test refusals

If you are like a lot of people in Virginia, you may know that one element involved in an arrest for alleged drunk driving is testing that can chemically measure the blood alcohol content in your system. Field sobriety tests are not able to provide any measurement of a BAC. Instead, this is done by taking a breath sample or a blood sample from a driver. While you may not be forced into providing either one of these samples, the implied consent law does open the door for you to experience some harsh penalties if you refuse a chemical test.

What if you want to move away after your divorce?

Among the more difficult aspects of a divorce is moving on from the memories of your relationship with your ex-spouse. Oftentimes, doing so may prompt you to want to move away from Harrisonburg. There are may be scenarios where you are asked to relocate as a condition of your employment. Whatever your reasons for wanting to move, actually doing so can be difficult given your custodial situation. You moving away can impact both yours and your ex-spouse's relationship with your kids. Thus, family courts take the issue of parental relocation very seriously. 

How do you handle a traffic stop?

A police car in your rearview mirror is seldom a good thing. If you are lucky, you will receive a warning for a mechanical issue on your vehicle. More likely, however, the officer is about to inform you of an infraction or violation that may result in anything from a minor disruption to a major change in your life.
