Zephyrhills, FL (Law Firm Newswire) May 3, 2011 – Currently, there are 25 arrest warrants in Zephyrhills for child support that is past due.

From spouses who rant and throw things, and some that would rather be at war than rationally discuss what is best for their children, divorce is overpowering the news media. Divorce is already a stressful event but when one party has a high conflict personality, legal representation early on may help avoid an all-out battle.

Zephyrhills, FL (Law Firm Newswire) February 28, 2011 – By June of this year, drop side cribs will be banned. Manufacturers will have to make cribs with stationary sides that cannot be dropped. Many of the drop side cribs have been recalled and some of them even led to deaths. These cribs were originally made with convenience in mind, so that parents and caregivers could drop down one side and easily lift their child. But the Consumer Protection Agency has ruled that they are less structurally sound, and the side that moves up and down has a tendency to break, […]

Zephyrhills, FL (Law Firm Newswire) February 7, 2011 – Public sentiment and the media are revving up the need to ban texting while driving in Florida in 2011.
