Disability benefits for disabled adult children

Many residents in Virginia have children who are unable to work at a level sufficient to support themselves as adults. These situations may be related to medical conditions such as cerebral palsy or other developmental delays. Injuries sustained in accidents may leave people with brain damage or other physical limitations. Regardless of the reason, it may be important for you to know that your Social Security disability benefits may be able to provide income to your adult child who is disabled. 

Grand larceny: a common crime

Sometimes, the decisions made at certain points of life are not always ones to be proud of. Due to a number of factors, including poverty, poor health and the threat of bankruptcy, many Virginia residents commit acts of theft that can permanently ruin their personal and professional reputations. While the intentions of such crimes may initially seem benign, the state handles larceny seriously. All the same, theft is a common crime in Virginia, but the ways courts address cases can depend on each individual situation.

Field sobriety tests not always accurate

If you have been arrested for and charged with a driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated offense in Virginia, you will want to educate yourself about many things. Certainly having an understanding of the types of penalties you may face if you are ultimately convicted is important. However, before that may ever happen, you should lear about the different ways in which you may effectively defend yourself against these charges.

The details of juvenile marijuana laws
