How are car accidents investigated in Pennsylvania?

If you have been injured in a car accident in the state of Pennsylvania, it is likely that you have suffered in many different ways. First, the car accident can be physically and emotionally traumatic. In addition to this trauma, you may be suffering financially due to medical bills, car damage and lost wages.

Year-End Charitable Giving and Qualified Charitable Distributions

As the end of the year quickly approaches, taxpayers may be thinking about their final charitable gifts as well as ensuring that they have taken their required minimum distributions from their IRAs. Utilizing a Qualified Charitable Distribution (a QCD) may help some taxpayers satisfy both of these goals. Additionally, with the tax reforms adopted for 2018, fewer taxpayers are able to utilize itemized deductions. For these taxpayers, utilizing a QCD also may provide a tax deduction.

Who can apply for child custody in Pennsylvania and how?

Even if divorcing parents are still on good terms, the right choices for child custody are hard to make. When parents finally agree on a custody arrangement, a court or mediator may have them start over to consider the children's wishes. One thing is certain: People who understand the child custody process are more likely to have their voices heard during it.

How locations play a critical role in snowmobile DUI charges

Something that a lot of people do not realize is that the police are on the lookout for any vehicle with a driver that could be under the influence. Winter is an especially dangerous time not just because of the holidays in the earlier months in the season, but because drunk motorists would have an especially tough time navigating excessive snow and ice covering the streets.

Why spouses wait until the holidays are over to divorce

While the Christmas season is often labeled as "The most wonderful time of the year," it can be anything but for married couples that are struggling with their relationship. Thousands of workers get several days off and get the chance to spend it with their loved ones, but what if someone doesn't want to be with their loved one?

Using bankruptcy to prevent foreclosure on your home

Owning a home can be a great financial investment, but it can also feel like a heavy burden when things are not going well. When people in the state of Pennsylvania are struggling financially, they often assume that filing for bankruptcy will mean the loss of their home. However, conversely, filing for bankruptcy in the state of Pennsylvania can actually mean that you can prevent foreclosure on your home.

Can the Castle Doctrine be used as a defense for violent crimes?

Violence is never a recommended way to solve a problem, but it can be the only way out of a dangerous situation under Pennsylvania law. Nearly every jurisdiction recognizes a person's right to self-defense, while the Keystone State also features a clause that can keep criminal charges away from certain people who felt the need to use violence.

Understanding the self-defense laws of Pennsylvania

All states make allowances in the law for using force -- even potentially deadly force -- against another person if it's believed necessary to prevent serious harm to themselves or other people, and even to protect property. These are generally referred to as self-defense laws. Let's take a look at Pennsylvania's self-defense laws.
