When you drive on roads like U.S I as much as most of us do, you need to master the art of the U-Turn. We all know how dangerous it can be, but it turns out it’s also not as simple as a lot of us thought it was. There’s a law. (There’s always a law.) However, as in many cases, there are exceptions to the law.  In this case, the law is Florida Statute 316.1515, and it says:  “The driver of any vehicle shall not turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any street […]

Is Your Dog an Insurance Risk?

Your pooch might be a pussycat in your eyes, but your homeowner’s policy may not provide adequate coverage – and if he or she is on the “bad breeds” list used by most insurance companies, it might not cover you at all. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says nearly 4.5 million Americans are bitten every year, resulting in an estimated 885,000 injuries that require medical attention — and half of those bitten are children.

Understanding Alimony in Florida

Different states have different standards for alimony – also known as “spousal support” – and Florida is no exception. Before awarding alimony, the Court must first make a determination of need and ability to pay; i.e., a party seeking alimony must show their need for the alimony and the other party’s ability to pay alimony. The Court then examines the length of the marriage. There is a presumption that a short-term marriage is less than 7 years; a moderate-term marriage is more than 7 years but less than 17 years; and a long-term marriage is longer than 17 years. Then […]

Watch Your Step: How to Stay Safe on Foot

With the arrival of winter, more and more people will be taking advantage of Florida’s fabulous weather, and many of them will be hitting the streets and sidewalks to run or just take a leisurely walk.
