Norfolk solicitor explains the benefits of a ‘good divorce’

Family solicitors at Norfolk-based law firm Clapham & Collinge LLP are supporting Resolution’s ‘Good Divorce Week 2020’, a national campaign that aims to promote practical and constructive ways for separating parents to put the needs of their children first.

Organised by Resolution, a community of more than 6,500 family justice professionals, this year the campaign focuses around the benefits of early legal advice, as it prepares to re-launch its Code of Practice. 

Resolution members believe the process of separating, sorting out finances and arranging childcare should be done in a way that minimises conflict and keeps the best interests of any children involved at the heart of proceedings. By seeking early professional advice, couples have the benefit of considering a range of options and making a decision that is most suitable to them.

Juan Luciano Divorce Lawyer Explains The Difference Between a Family Law Attorney and a Divorce Lawyer – Press Release

Manhattan, NY – People may be confused about legal terminology and the labels by which lawyers refer to themselves. This often happens in family and divorce law when an attorney refers to themselves as a “divorce lawyer” or a “family law” attorney. But Juan Luciano, Esq., a divorce lawyer in New York, says it is all semantics.

10/10/2020, Dallas // KISSPR //

As a growing number of people around the country have gathered to protest police brutality, some individuals have been charged with damaging property or looting. In a handful of cases, high-profile people like YouTuber and influencer Jake Paul have been charged with crimes in connection with this type of behavior. 

Under Texas law, looting and the destruction of property can be charged as criminal mischief. While the constitution protects the right to peaceably assemble, it doesn’t give individuals the right to destroy property or commit theft. 

If you plan on attending a protest or rally, it’s important to understand what kind of behavior is protected by law and which activities could result in being charged with criminal mischief.
