Ignorance of the law-A loving example

Guest Blogger: Samuel B. Goldberg, Esquire Hey, remember the old adage “What you don’t know cannot hurt you”? Well, if it ever was true, it isn’t anymore.

I am proud to have become “Of Counsel” to the Briones Law Group and you can

The effect of requiring cash bail in our criminal system is that people who can afford to pay remain out of jail while their case is ongoing.

Opioid addiction called major health crisis by Senator Eldridge, leads to legislation to address it.

I agree with Senator Eldridge that opioid addiction is a major health crisis in our State. From a legal standpoint, our Courts are clogged with people being prosecuted for crimes that arise out of their addiction. Larceny, home invasion, car jacking, and fraud are only a fraction of the charges I have seen. All due to the addicts trying to get their hands on money to support their addiction. Senator Eldridge votes for major legislation

What Is Child Support and how is it determined by the court?

Both parents are legally obligated to provide for their children. If the parents separate, this expectation is continued through the process of child support. At the dissolution of their relationship, typically one parent will retain primary custody of the child while the other receives parenting time.

Pets and Divorce

People who know me well know how much I love animals, dogs in particular. So if you asked me who should get the dog in a divorce, I would likely have a different opinion than the Judges in Probate Court.
