Parenting plans are a critical step for every couple in Florida who have minor children and are ending their relationship by divorce or by simply separating. Each couple must prepare a parenting plan that sets out visitation and custody schedules. The plan must be submitted to the court for approval and, if the couple cannot agree on a plan, the court will prepare its own plan.
For generations, Florida parents let the courts decide who would receive custody of the children and who would get visitation rights during a divorce. Under these circumstances, the parents had little reason to get along, even if for the sake of the children. Some couples overcame the situation, but so many others never did, and the parents weren't the ones who suffered the most for it.
Most modern highways are designed to make entering or leaving traffic lanes easy and safe, but drivers can become confused about which lane they are using or how to enter that lane. Such confusion can lead to fatal consequences, as proved by a recent head-on collision between an apparent wrong-way driver and another vehicle.
Traffic accidents can produce any number of sad or ironic outcomes. As the result of a three-vehicle accident in Lake County on April 1, 2018, a woman was recently arrested and charged with vehicular homicide for allegedly causing an accident that killed her boyfriend. According to the police report, alcohol appeared to be the principal causative factor.
Half-way houses are intended to provide opportunities for convicted criminals to master their anti-social instincts and habits and learn how to fit into society. Sometimes, however, people who live in half-way houses do not see or take advantage of these benefits. According to reports, a pair of teenagers living in a Fort Myers half-way house recently escaped and fled to Orlando, where they allegedly engaged in a spree of petty crimes.
