Winter weather brings driving hazards

Winter is fast approaching, and Pennsylvania drivers will soon be faced with ice and snow on area roads. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 22 percent of all U.S. traffic accidents are the result of winter weather. However, by taking a few safety precautions, drivers can reduce their risk of being involved in a winter-related crash.

Dividing retirement accounts

Pennsylvania couples who are getting divorced should be aware that making wrong decisions about how to divide retirement assets can be very costly in the long run. Legal and accounting professionals spend a lot of time rectifying the mistakes made by divorcing couples who mishandle their retirement accounts. It is important a legal agreement is in place to avoid having to pay a high tax bill or ending up with no retirement funds at all.

Immigrant concerns regarding domestic violence

Domestic violence is a serious concern in Pennsylvania and around the country. In recent years, there has been increased awareness of intimate partner violence and ways to prevent it. However, immigrants who are victims of domestic violence are often particularly vulnerable.

Standard time correlates with increased animal-related crash risk

As daylight hours grow shorter, motorists should be aware of the risk posed by wildlife who may wander across the roadway. The return of standard time coincides with wildlife mating season in Pennsylvania and other states across the nation, so deer and other types of animals are likely to be active when drivers are making their daily commutes in low daylight conditions.

Study shows how night shift workers risk more accidents

Pennsylvania residents should know that over 9.5 million Americans work either a night shift or a rotating shift. This means that millions of individuals are endangering themselves and others on the road each day they drive home from work. The reason lies in the nature of shift work. It disrupts the ordinary sleep-wake cycle, thus increasing drowsiness as well as the risk for getting conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Planning for visitation, child custody and co-parenting

There are misconceptions about divorced fathers not being a significant part of their children's lives after the separation. The truth is that many divorced fathers in Pennsylvania and the rest of nation desire to be actively involved in their children's lives post-divorce. However, it is necessary that they know what to do to obtain the child custody, co-parenting and visitation terms that can help ensure a strong level of involvement.
