The keto diet could render false positive breath test for DUI

Residents of Kansas who are on the popular keto diet for health and weight loss might want to hear about a curious drunk driving case that happened earlier this year. The Houston-area attorney for a man who was charged with DUI got the charges dropped after discovering that his client was on the keto diet. The attorney claims that a positive breath test was reading alcohol on the man's breath that was not there because he had been drinking, but because he was in ketosis.

Higher-earning wives may be more likely to divorce

When a Kansas wife earns more money than her husband, divorce could be more likely. This is true even though women make half the income or more in nearly 33% of relationships. According to a 2017 report by the Pew Research Center, a perception remains that men should be the breadwinners.

How income factors into child support payments

Kansas parents who get divorced may be required to pay child support to their spouse. The amount of a child support payment will be partially based on a parent's income. A judge will usually include salary, interest income and any distributions received from an employer or from a business that the parent owns. Other forms of income that may be used to determine a child support payment include deferred or carried interest as well as any bonuses received.
