Tipped- off postal delivery leads to multiple drug charges

Many postal packages are delivered each day to Tennessee residents. While some of these deliveries are anticipated, others may come as a surprise, as one did recently for a local homeowner. Unfortunately, a package containing illegal drugs was delivered to the residence, and the person who picked the package up is now facing multiple drug charges.

Are you prepared to win child custody?

Child custody cases tend to be more contentious and stressful than other types of family law proceedings. Some parents may strive to win sole custody while others push for joint custody. Whatever the case may be, most courts will often lean toward joint custody as the best outcome for the child or children involved. Tennessee parents who are focused on being awarded sole custody of their child could benefit from understanding what the courts look for  when determining who the better parent is.

Yes, food with alcohol baked in can result in a DUI

It's long been a myth that you can't get drunk from eating foods that have been cooked with alcohol. "The alcohol burns off!" is what most people believe. The truth is that it's unlikely that all the alcohol put into a dish will bake off, and that's bad news if you plan to drive.

Preparing your finances for divorce

For some couples, divorce is inevitable, despite the multiple attempts to keep the family together, often including numerous counseling sessions. The breakup of a marriage is rarely easy, regardless of the reasoning behind it. Whatever the case may be, it is crucial for Tennessee residents to prepare all finances before an upcoming divorce.

Police raid leads to multiple drug charges for 2 individuals

In Tennessee and across the country, drug charges are a pretty common offense. Whether an individual is found to be in possession of an illegal drug or has an intent to sell the drug, the potential criminal penalties can be devastating. After a recent drug bust at an apartment complex, two Carroll County residents are now facing multiple drug charges and the possibility of significant penalties if found guilty.
