Property DamageIf you plead guilty and pay the fine on any traffic ticket you receive, points will accrue to your driving record, depending on the type of traffic offense you have committed. Once points are placed on your driving record, they cannot be removed. Tickets for speeding, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in $50 or more in property damage, passing a stopped school bus, and other moving violations will all result in points to your driving record. If you accrue 12 points within a 12 month period, your license may be suspended for 30 days. If you accrue 18 points within an 18-month period, you may lose your license for 3 months. If you accrue 24 points within 36 months, you may lose your license for one year.

MurderStinney was convicted of killing two white girls, ages 11 and 8, in the town of Alcolu. Although officials contended that Stinney admitted to committing the crime, a 2009 affidavit from Stinney's sister argued that she had been with her brother on the day of the murder and thus he could not have committed the crime. Furthermore, no documentation of Stinney's confession exists.

Child Custody and VisitationWhether you are the father or mother, it is essential that you pause to think whether or not your goals reflect the best interests of your children. Sometimes a parent can fight for custody simply out of vengeance, perhaps towards an unfaithful spouse. In some divorce cases, the battle for child custody can rival the battles waged over property. Our firm is committed to helping parents act in the best interest of their children.
Spousal SupportOur goal is to resolve your non-compliance matter so that your best interests are honored and protected as was the court's original intent. A child support or alimony order, for example, is made in order to protect the well-being of individuals affected by a divorce. With our help, a bench warrant may be issued against the non-compliant individual. We will do whatever it takes to bring them into compliance.
Child AbuseNot all defendants will be allowed bail. When determining whether or not bail will be allowed, the judge will take a number of issues into account such as the nature of the crime, any history of failing to appear at your previous court appearances, whether or not you are a flight risk and whether or not you are a threat to someone or to the community. For those accused of dangerous crimes such as arson, aggravated assault or battery, child abuse or aggravated child abuse, aircraft piracy, kidnapping, manslaughter, homicide, sexual battery and others, the courts will determine whether or not they would be putting the community at risk by allowing bail.
