Make sure that your will is valid in North Carolina

A will is one of the most important parts of an estate planning arsenal. It details what you want to happen with your hard-earned money and most prized assets once you've passed away. It can also spell out your final wishes concerning burial or the scattering of your ashes. Each state has different criteria that must be met for a will to be considered as properly executed. North Carolina is no different in that respect.

Do you have concerns about a potential arrest?

You may have a loved one who is on the brink of facing criminal legal trouble, or you may be under investigation yourself. Whichever the case, you want to gain information on the possibility of authorities making an arrest and what it could mean for you or your loved one.

Nearly half of all alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents are caused by motorists with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.16% or more, which is double North Carolina's 0.08% legal limit. While many of the motorists who cause these crashes are indeed intoxicated, it's possible to end up with a high BAC without consuming much (or even any) alcohol. This may result being wrongly charged with DWI/DUI.

If you've been charged with child abuse, then you likely realize that you're facing some serious time in jail if you're convicted. You may be wondering what types of specific offenses can be considered child abuse. Abandonment, neglect, emotional or physical harm, sexual abuse and endangerment all fall under the umbrella of child abuse. Many cases are reported to police by mandated reporters.

Be careful when you enter into a contract here in Statesville

Most people who have been burned by someone that they've entered into a contract with did so because they failed to get their agreement in writing. Others failed to get a contract attorney to review it before they signed it. It's unlikely that any of them had a notary public witness their signatures.
