5 common causes of catastrophic crashes

Car crashes can happen in the blink of an eye. In one minute, you can be thinking about the fastest way to get home from work; in the next minute, you can be fighting for your life on the side of the road.

Besides getting immediate medical attention, identifying the cause of any crash should be a top priority for crash victims and their families. Determining cause can establish liability, which can provide the basis for a personal injury claim. Some causes of crashes are far more common than others are.

Who makes the decision on whether you should receive alimony?

Adjusting to life after divorce is not easy for most people. After years of living with someone, raising kids together and splitting household responsibilities, it takes some time to make the transition into doing these things as an individual.

Helping kids with divorce-related transitions

A divorce triggers many life transitions or changes in daily routines for the divorcing individuals and their entire family, especially their children. The way in which these transitions progress could affect the couple's children in many ways. It is important for divorcing parents to help such transitions go as smoothly as possible for their kids.

One thing parents can do to try to help with the transition, is to keep consistent household routines for the kids. All changes connected to a divorce can be disorienting for a child. Giving a child some stability, such as routine stability, could give them a greater sense of security and help them adjust to the things that are changing.
