What choices can keep you from getting a DUI?

The holidays have come and gone, but there are still reasons to go out and celebrate with your friends or family. A special achievement, an anniversary, a birthday or just wanting to go out and have fun are all reasons you might go to a bar or a party. However, it is important for you and other Virginia residents to understand that when there is alcohol, there is also the chance of getting a DUI.

Understanding date rape

Date rape is a continuing problem in Virginia and across the nation. While both men and women can be raped, women are most often the victims of rape. GirlsHealth defines rape as any sexual act forced upon a woman by someone else, including intercourse, sodomy or insertion of an object into her mouth, rectum or vagina. Date rape is a rape committed by someone the woman knows, such as her current boyfriend.

Holidays can be difficult during a divorce or separation

If you are going through a divorce or separated from your spouse during the holiday season, this can be a difficult time of year for you. It is never easy to feel alone, and memories of happier years might add to the strain. At the law office of Mark B. Arthur, PC, we understand this can be heartbreaking for you and other Virginia residents who are going through the same thing.

What is domestic violence in Virginia?

If you are a victim of domestic violence in Virginia, you may be unclear about what protections are available to you and what you can do to enhance your future safety. The Lynchburg Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court states that domestic violence cases, also called family abuse cases, can be either civil or criminal in nature. In a civil case, you seek a protective order against your abuser, asking that he be prevented from doing certain things. In a criminal case, such as for domestic assault and battery, your abuser is charged with a crime by a prosecutor and can be jailed or otherwise penalized if he is convicted.
