Ways to avoid your first or subsequent DUI

Whether you are welcoming the weekend or celebrating a holiday, there is nothing quite like getting together with good company and enjoying some drinks. Unfortunately, your fun night might end in a trip to a jail cell, if you got behind the wheel after having too much to drink. There is no reason you and other Oklahoma residents should not have fun, however. You can still have a good time and include alcohol in your festivities if you are smart about it.

My elderly parent doesn't have a will, now what?

Death and dying are topics most people would like to avoid thinking about. However, when an aging parent is facing the twilight years of his or her life, the reality she or he will not live forever is something families must face. In most cases, the tasks relating to preparing for end-of-life considerations fall not only on the elderly parents' shoulders, but also on the adult children.

Factors that affect blood alcohol content

Many people end up drinking and driving in the state of Oklahoma every year. When police pull a car over on suspicion of driving under the influence, they will check the driver's blood alcohol content to see if it is over 0.08. While people should ideally drive with a BAC of zero, they can technically get off the hook as long as it is lower than 0.08. A variety of factors impact this number.

In child custody disputes, the Oklahoma law courts use a philosophy of “what is the best interest of the children.” In most cases, the best interest of the child is to have a relationship with both parents. Fortunately, if parents can work out an acceptable parenting plan, then the courts do not have to step in and make arrangements that might not be good for all the parties involved.

5 responsibilities of being an executor
