Paternity and the Law


Posted By on Sep 8, 2017

Families often have an issue with confirming the paternity of a child, and the parents can either be married, unmarried, separated or divorced. Paternity law involves legal recognition of the biological father of the child. When the paternity is unknown, genetic testing is generally done to establish this paternity. If the alleged father is trying to disprove his paternity, the mother can file a paternity suit against him so that child support can be obtained.

These paternity issues can arise when there are cases involving child support, but they are also important in areas like custody and visitation, health care, adoption, and inheritance.   The action to establish paternity is a civil proceeding. This proceeding is usually done when one party contests the paternity allegation. The alleged father may want proof that he is the actual father before he agrees to pay any type of financial support. However, the mother can also contest the father’s paternity, like when another man, other than her husband, attempts to gain custody of or visitation rights with a child that he thinks may be his own child.

In many cases, paternity can be established voluntarily when there is no disagreement among the parents. Also, paternity can be established by circumstantial evidence, like when a married man is presumed to be the father of a baby that was born shortly after the marriage to his wife.

When DNA profiling became available, this was an important breakthrough in discovering the paternity of the child. The DNA testing can establish a father’s paternity with over ninety-nine percent accuracy, and it can be done before the child is born. When paternity is established in this way, the father can be ordered to pay child support for his child.

There are cases where the father is not married to the child’s mother. This father will not likely be awarded custody of the child if the mother is providing good care for that child.   However, the father can receive preference over grandparents or prospective adoptive parents.

In the instance where two unmarried persons have a child together, the father needs to sign an ‘Acknowledgement of Paternity’ to be officially declared the father of the child, with all the rights and obligations associated with this role. However, if the father chooses not to sign this document or is prevented from signing it, the court can intervene and enter an order that establishes paternity. This paternity order declares that the child’s father is the legal father.

If there is no official acknowledgment of paternity or the paternity order, the child’s father has no obligation to pay child support. This can cause a financial burden on a single, unmarried mother, so in these types of situations, the paternity order is commonly sought. Likewise, if the father wants to have custody – shared, partial or full – or have visitation rights, he would have to be legally named the father through an acknowledgment of paternity or a paternity order.

Like a lot of family law issues, establishing paternity can be emotionally and financially challenging to all concerned. In these types of cases, it is especially important to seek the counsel of an experienced Family Law attorney. This type of attorney, like Kessler & Solomiany, LLC, can answer your questions and assist you with any court proceedings when required.

International borders do an excellent job at immediately breaking the commonality of human nature between two people. Borders in the modern world create tense centers of conflict and can be the cause of key international incidents that panic civilizations. Also, due to strict regulations by governments, it can be challenging to apply and receive citizenship in another country other than the one the person is born in. The restrictions placed on granting citizenship are highly enforced and have become a crucial part of current American politics. With passionate rhetoric on both sides of the aisle, immigration status is one of the most discussed topics across all demographics.

In the modern world, a person’s citizenship can determine every possible area of their life. Their country of origin is a key determining factor in their interaction with the world. Certain countries in the world have specific sanctions that keep their citizens on their shores, whereas other countries’ citizens have a plethora of freedom of mobility. The United States is a good example for a country whose citizens can move across the globe with relative ease, but at the same time is extremely restrictive upon the people they allow into the country and even further, who they allow to become naturalized citizens. Many people are familiar with the relationship between the United States Government and Mexican citizens coming to America in hopes of a more bountiful life.

As a result of the focus on immigration in the past U.S. election and the threat of building a wall by Donald Trump and his supporters, tensions with immigration control have been on the rise throughout the country. In many cases, due to new protocols enacted by Trump and his advisors, immigrant families around the country are barbarically torn apart by U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement officers. Due to lack of citizenship in the United States, these people have been severely mistreated and in many cases abused by border control officers. If any individual finds themselves in the United States without government clearance, they would be best suited to seek assistance in completing the immigration procedures. This process can be long and intensive for immigrants as many are experiencing English as a second language. They are without their support network, often lack financial security, and have most likely dealt with very traumatic circumstances to reach U.S. soil only to be told they have no place here.

The dehumanization that goes on in the state regulated immigration process can not continue into the 21st century as it only further divides our populations. Hateful rhetoric spewed by right wing institutions must be dealt with at its core to avoid further racism within the country. Much of the U.S. system is widely influenced by public opinion, particularly the misguided views of ranking officials. Native and immigrant children must be able to grow up in a world that is free of immigration restrictions based out of prejudice.

Marriage Counseling


Posted By on Jul 23, 2017

Though couples often enter marriage wildly in love, a variety of circumstances can change their relationship dynamic over time. Thinking their differences “irreconcilable,” many couples choose to divorce. However, couples willing to rebuild their relationship may benefit from the services of a marriage counselor, who can act as mediator and therapist for both individuals.

Therapy topics

As the marriage counseling expert, Kathleen Snyder, explains, relationships are often complicated by factors including the following:

  • Lack of communication: communication often deteriorates in relationships over time, and a marriage counselor can help pinpoint “how” and “why” this has occurred in the patient’s relationship.
  • Conflict and resentment: when a conflict drags out, it creates a legacy of resentment that needs to be addressed before healing can occur.
  • Drifting apart: as people grow and change, they may find themselves drifting apart from their spouse. Marriage counselors can help draw couples back together by fostering friendship and communication.
  • Affair recovery: affair recovery usually occurs in two phases—recreating security within the relationship and pinpointing the underlying factors that caused the affair to happen in the first place.
  • Differences in parenting style: oftentimes, parents differ in the way that they want to raise their child. A marriage counselor can teach parents how to reconcile their differences by combining teaching and nurturing.
  • Obstacles to sexual intimacy: a marriage counselor can help couples examine the emotion and physical factors that contribute to lack of sexual intimacy
  • Balancing work and family : given technological advancements, many employers expect round-the-clock access to their employees. If an individual always succumbs to this pressure, their spouse (and/or family) can begin to feel lonely and unimportant.
  • Strong emotions: marriage counselors can help pinpoint the source of strong emotions such as anger, anxiety, depression, and grief.

Though these problems are all serious in nature, they don’t have to be permanent. If a couple is willing to invest in nurturing their relationship and working through their differences, a marriage counselor can likely help them make it through the journey.

Motorcycle Safety


Posted By on Feb 24, 2017

Movies and televisions alike portray motorcyclists as daring and carefree individuals who have proven themselves by taming the electronic beast and, confident in their invincibility, charge down long asphalt highways at incredible speeds. Some individual’s enamored by this romanticized view of motorcycles may purchase the vehicle with these expectations in mind. Indeed, according to http://www.mazininjurylawyers.com/, some individuals purchase a motorcycle as a cheaper alternative to traditional motor vehicles. One should know several safety precautions before purchasing a motorcycle.

Because a motorcycle lacks the security promised by the body of a traditional motor vehicle, a motorcyclist must possess the appropriate tools to protect against injuries. The motorcyclist cannot afford to be impervious of the weather. A waterproof full-body suit, gloves, and boots can protect against the rain. To guard against potential road rash and other severe injuries, an individual must purchase a complete motorcycle gear. This outfit consists of several key components. First, an individual must purchase a well-fitted helmet that accounts for head shape yet still guarantees optimal field of view. Then a waterproof and windproof motorcycle gloves that are to defend against weather as well as impact injures such as abrasions. Lastly, the individual needs a jacket and riding jeans with appropriate padding to cover the vast majority of his or her. Finally, he or she must buy a nice pair of combat motorcycle boots.

These items will safeguard against the damages of motorcycle accidents, however, it is essential that an individual interested in purchasing a motorcycle is conscious of the top risks faced by motorcyclists on the road. The most dangerous situation faced by beginner motorists involves engaging in defensive driving. The individual must drive for two people: himself and the others around him. Drivers of motor vehicles possess blind spots that can put the motorcyclist at risk. Finally, the motorcyclist must also be aware of the conditions of the roads such as inclement weather, loose gravel and road-kill as such events can lead to tragic, fatal accidents.

In the U.S., carrying auto liability insurance is a mandate; thus, whether you drive a car, a truck or a motorcycle, and no matter what your driving history is, whether it is marred by multiple driving violations and driving accidents, you will have to be insured.

Carrying auto liability insurance is the most common way drivers comply with the Financial Responsibility law, the law which requires drivers to prove that they are able to pay for damages resulting from accidents due to their fault. Other than having insurance coverage, compliance with said law includes any state-approved way of demonstrating financial capacity to pay, like: depositing securities or money with the state treasurer or filing an SR-22, which is the case in the state of New Hampshire; or paying the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) the required uninsured motor vehicle fee, as in the case in the state of Virginia.

Where drivers decide to carry auto insurance, the type of coverage they need to carry depends on the liability system recognized in the state where they reside. Presently, 38 states, also known as “tort” or “fault” states, require the tort liability coverage; the remaining 12 states, also known as “no-fault” states, these are Utah, New York, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas, Hawaii, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Kentucky, require the “no-fault” insurance coverage (drivers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Kentucky are actually allowed to choose which coverage they want to carry).

Drivers, especially those who cause accidents, can lose their driving privileges and be required to carry an SR-22 filing if they are found without insurance coverage. An SR-22 is a certification required by the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This certification is issued by a car insurance provider; it informs the state DMV that the driver who has been required to file an SR-22 has already purchased an insurance policy.

While an insurance policy can already put a strain on a driver’s budget, an SR-22 is an additional financial burden. Besides the SR-22 fee, it will also make insurance premiums more expensive and, sad to say, this will last for three years and may even be extended by a judge to five years.

Drivers, however, are provided ways to finding an insurance and SR-22 deal that is within their budget, thanks to independent insurance companies, according to the website of LaMarca Law Group P.C., these insurance companies offer various insurance quotes that would allow drivers to compare and choose the best policy that will fit their needs.

While people of this day and age have plenty to be thankful for, with regard to technological advancements especially in the medical field, there are some exceptions to the rule. After all, though some laws are infallible – there are some new discoveries that simply have some flaws that go overlooked until they are too late. Sometimes, it can mean disastrous consequences for the people who inadvertently trust in the wrong discovery at the wrong time.

Take, for example, the option that women take with undergoing procedures involving vaginal mesh.

Usually, the most common reason as to why people would elect to have this procedure done is due to Pelvic Organ Prolapse or POP. This is fairly normal for some people who have recently given birth since the lining of the vaginal walls are made weak or stretched too thin due to the pregnancy. Though it’s usually solvable with time and plenty of bedrest, there are those who suffer severe reactions such as POP and that constitutes the necessity for vaginal mesh.

Some cases, as can be found in this website (http://www.williamskherkher.com/practice-areas/defective-pharmaceuticals/vaginal-mesh-lawsuit/), have patients who have claimed that the vaginal mesh has caused for them to feel agonizing pain when urinating or participating in sexual intercourse involving penetration. POP has also been known to affect the person’s bowel movements, as well as other effects that could prove to further degrade the person’s body if left further unseen or left without proper and sufficient treatment.

The thing about cases of this nature is that if cases like this are pursued, the help required would not only need to be knowledgeable with the law that surrounds cases like this but must also have sufficient knowledge of the medical part about these circumstances.

This is the most advanced that human beings have ever come to, in terms of science and technology. Along with the brand new innovations that come with progress and change, there are certain things about society that are affected due to these changes. For example, the way people converse with one another has highly evolved from just a simple hello from the other side of a telephone.

These days, most people in large metropolitan areas are equipped with smartphones in order to keep in touch with friends, family, and even business partners. Some have equated this image to the modern day person to be a zombie or a slave to their devices when that image couldn’t be farther from the truth. These new devices and communication channels allow for people to have the freedom and diversity necessary in order to broaden their horizon. People are far more equipped with information than ever before because it has become more easily and readily accessible at the drop the dime.

This has also revolutionized the way corporations and firms interact and connect with their clients. Thanks to personalized apps, they can monitor the precise demand of their clients and are able to help them out more efficiently and effectively, as is the purpose of these new advancements.

For example, according to the website of Big Momma Apps, law firms with personalized apps that are specifically suited to their firm allow for them to give immediate support and advice to their clients for their cases. If someone were, say, in a situation that legally constitutes as personal injury, they can then be guided into the proper protocol of what to do instead of waiting for a significant period of time before even thinking to connect with legal help at all, and by then, it might have been too late.

Technological advancements are meant to improve the way people live their lives in a way that is effective and efficient for them. This is, however, a process that requires change and adapting to the new and still ever-changing society.

Should I Even Consider Self-Storage?


Posted By on Feb 14, 2016

They say that memories become stories when you forget them. Human beings being what they are, of course, are sentimental creatures by habit. Some objects can hold sentimental value to them for they were present or instrumental during a particularly important part of their lives. What people remember becomes what happens and, more often than not, this is what people store and save for themselves.

Sometimes, it is for an investment. Take, for instance, some comic book collectors keep previous issues in mint condition for they know their price in the future will skyrocket once the editions are out of print. Some comic book titles are so rare and valuable that a single issue in good condition could have an estimated value that could amount to millions of dollars. This is just one of the examples, of course, but the point is taken – people store personal items either for sentimental reasons or for practical reasons like future market value.

These times are ever changing, though, and people are likely to move from state to state for one reason or another. Maybe it’s to chase a particular job opportunity or in order to pursue a particular relationship—whatever the reason, it is a common conclusion to come to that moving has become something that people just do once they grow up. Some people tend to move more than others and the question that some people tend to forget is that their belongings have to be cared for along with them.

Most people believe that they must be present at all times in order to keep their belongings with them but the problem with moving valuables around all the time is that they can become susceptible to loss or theft. Mopac self storage, and others like it, have the option of storing personal belongings that have no immediate use but have long-term value to the person who owns them. Self-storage can end up saving a lot of grief and stress when moving and that way, people don’t have to choose between their paths from their past.

Why Use a Suppressor?


Posted By on Feb 13, 2016

It is a common fact that, more often than not, new firearm owners in the United States can be prone to believe that suppressors and silencers are illegal. In truth, there are only some select states where this is true while in other places, where they were once rare and considered unnecessary, they are all but commonplace.

Many think that suppressors are ultimately unnecessary but with the advantages and benefits of one on a firearm? The number of accessories that can offer as many advantages and improvements on a firearm as suppressors are far and few in between and there are just as many reasons as to why you might want to open yourself up to the possibility of investing in one.

At http://www.suppressedweaponsystems.com/, high quality suppressors are able to reduce recoil and improve the accuracy of the shot. A suppressor can not only just reduce noise but it also makes shooting safer for the user. With significantly decreased recoil, a suppressor can also allow for faster reloading of ammunition. This can also be useful for hunters that don’t wish to alert nearby prey of their presence while on the lookout as some suppressors not only suppress the sound but the light as well.

There are very few experienced shooters who will cite suppressors as something that is exclusive to snipers or the disadvantages that come with it. To the contrary of its name, suppressors or silencers are not just there in order to make shots quieter. There is little interference with the ammunition and the barrel if a silencer is used and that allows for better accuracy when taking even a shot from a significant distance.

If you or someone you know is looking into the process of securing the permit to acquire a suppressor, a few reminders of the advantages of this accessory could prove useful to remember.
