How tax law can affect divorce negotiations

When people in Kansas make the decision to end their marriages, they often find that the financial aspects of a divorce can be among the most significant. This is one reason why changes to the tax code that affect the way divorces are handled are compelling many couples to try to finalize their divorces before the end of 2018. These changes can have a significant effect on both parties to the divorce with long-term financial repercussions.

Drink driving laws in Kansas

Most drivers in Kansas are considered intoxicated if they have a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, but stricter rules apply to commercial vehicle drivers and those under the legal drinking age of 21. The penalties for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol can be severe for motorists who cause serious accidents or have a history of drunk driving, and people who operate a vehicle while intoxicated with passengers under the age of 14 also face more severe penalties in Kansas.

When a former spouse defies the divorce agreement

Part of the process for finalizing a divorce between a Kansas couple is to draft and sign off on a divorce settlement agreement. While many former spouses understand that this agreement is legally binding, there are some who decide to defy the agreement. Depending on what was agreed upon, this could mean that the person refuses to pay child support, follow the visitation schedule or even hand over certain assets.

Could non-compete agreements benefit your company?

When you work hard to achieve a goal, you certainly want to receive your due credit. Additionally, you do not want someone else using your hard work or taking credit for your work for personal gain, especially in the business world. The actions you take may make or break your company, and when tactics help your business thrive, you want to protect your information.

Building consistency into your parenting plan

When you have children, routines and schedules help everyone know what happens next on any given day. This especially comes in handy during the school year when everyone needs to be up at a certain time, make it to extracurricular activities and get done with homework. Without some consistency, the household may not run smoothly, and that's often when chaos ensues.

How to make divorce easier

When Kansas residents get married, they generally aren't thinking about getting a divorce. However, if a marriage does come to an end, there are ways to make a divorce easier. For example, it is critical that an individual considers the settlement process to be a business transaction as opposed to an emotional ordeal. By using facts and logic, individuals can work toward a fair and timely settlement.
