Work with your attorney to set up your first business

Forming a limited liability corporation (LLC) is easy if you have the right information. It is not always easy to get your business off the ground, but it sets you up for success if you start out as the right kind of business.

One of the first steps to protecting yourself is filing as a limited liability corporation, because it protects you against personal financial liabilities if there are problems with the business in the future, such as bankruptcy. There may also be tax advantages, which could help you save hundreds, or thousands, of dollars.

Bias or fairness? Custody in court can be complex

A father does not have fewer rights than a mother just by virtue of being male. It's something that fathers must remember to protect themselves. Biases in court are not only unfair but also illegal.

It is not true that women are more likely to have custody of their children as a result of a bias in court. In fact, fathers have the same rights in seeking custody as mothers. However, there are some factors that lend to women obtaining more custody over men that may come up in your case. These factors include things such as:

  • A mother's time spent at home raising your child
  • The nature of their relationship (mothers who stay at home with children may have a more significant bond)
  • Having more time to raise a child due to a flexible work schedule or maternity leave

How can you tell if you have neuropathy?

When nerves are damaged, a person may develop peripheral neuropathy. This simply means that the nerves that carry information to and from the brain are damaged and unable to carry the signals correctly. Single nerves that are damaged or groups of nerves that suffer damage can cause peripheral neuropathy.

Interestingly, neuropathy is very common. It can happen due to natural causes like infections, metabolic disease, low levels of certain vitamins, bone marrow disorders, tumors and poor blood flow to the legs. Neuropathy can also be caused by outside sources like being exposed to the cold for a long period of time or being involved in trauma, like a car crash.

You can build a successful business with the right support

Many people are eager to start their own businesses, but they aren't quite sure where to begin. You're not alone if you feel the same way.

Starting a small business can be daunting, but it can also be extremely beneficial to your future. There are over 28 million small businesses throughout America, according to the Small Business Administration. What's more interesting is that of the small businesses with employees, only around two-thirds survive two years. Only around half make it to the five-year mark.

Drunk driving: Drivers know better but still do it

Of all the things that drivers know they shouldn't do, driving drunk is probably the most prominent. People know that driving while intoxicated is a serious threat to themselves and to others.

The website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that approximately 10,497 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes in 2015. That's around 28 percent of all motor-vehicle fatalities reported that year. Around 1.5 million people are arrested for drinking and driving or using drugs and driving while impaired each year, which is a serious problem for others who are trying to be safe on the roads.

Prenuptial agreements have become more common

A prenuptial agreement used to be a topic that wasn’t commonly talked about and one that could cause angst and high emotion between soon-to-be-spouses. A common misconception is that you only need a prenuptial agreement in place if you’re wealthy. But thanks to millennials, a prenuptial agreement is becoming more commonplace and less of a taboo subject.

Also known as a prenup, a prenuptial agreement is a legal document that outlines a couple’s financial situation and expectations prior to their marriage and in the event of a divorce. It’s not often at the top of the wedding to-do list, but more and more, couples are looking at them like an insurance policy to minimize risk and harm and protect their assets.

Can I move for a new job and bring my child?

When you're offered a new job, it's an exciting feeling. If it comes with a raise and is in a location you've been wanting to move to, it's even better. What's not great is when that job comes with the realization that you may not be able to bring your child.

As a divorced parent, you know that the other parent also has a right to see your child. You share custody, but that doesn't mean that you get the right to move far away with your child. You and your ex-spouse will have to come to an agreement on what happens in this situation. If you can't, then a judge has to step in.

How can you be safe as a winter cyclist?

While they're not always common, winter cyclists do exist. They also have a right to use the roads.

Cycling in winter can be difficult in Ohio, though, especially when slush and snow are shoved onto sidewalks and the sides of roadways. Slick conditions and drivers who aren't expecting to see cyclists can lead to serious crashes.

Know the estate tax and prepare for it ahead of time

As 2018 comes to a close, it's time to start looking into changes coming in 2019. If you're planning an estate, then you need to take some time to review your estate and any changes that might need to be made.

One important change that happens annually, in most cases, is a change to the estate tax. The estate tax is not lodged against every estate in America, but it could affect yours if it's above a certain value.

How can you start forming a nonprofit the right way?

If your goal is to form a nonprofit, then you need to make sure you understand the laws that apply to that goal. Nonprofits are great businesses, usually because those who start them want to see a change happen in the world. There are steps to take before you can formally launch your business, though.

Following a simple list of steps is the best way to make sure you don't miss anything when setting up your nonprofit. Here are three steps you need to take first when you're getting started.
