What can a prenup include?

If you are in a romantic relationship that you believe may have the staying power to be a lifelong union, you may want to open up dicussions with your partner about creating a prenuptial agreement before you walk down the aisle and say "I do." While some people may think that such a discussion is the opposite of romantic, some people in Pennsylvania might find that it allows them to preserve their relationships and even enhance them by forcing couples to talk openly about difficult topics. This type of communication is important for a successful marriage. 

Failure rates of field sobriety tests

If you have experienced the full process of being arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Pennsylvania, you may well not only feel scared but even potentially helpless. You might have taken field sobriety tests as well as breath or blood tests. The results of these tests would all be used in the case against you. However, before you give up hope and assume that there is no way you can fight the charges against you, think again.

IIDs to be required for first-time DUI

The war on drunk driving is heating up in Pennsylvania it seems. While certainly the need to keep people safe is important and something nobody would disagree with, there is also the need to be fair to all parties. Now the state has stepped up its penalties for drivers convicted of some driving under the influence charges and the move is said to be in line with virtually every other state in the nation.

New bill to end financial bail

Many in Pennsylvania have gone through the financial pressure brought on by a loved one's need for a cash bond after being arrested and charged with a crime. Without the money, they were unable to leave jail, but coming up with the amount is sometimes difficult or impossible, and that can have serious repercussions on a person's life. Two senators have introduced a bill to try to change this system so that the ability to pay is not what keeps people in jail.

New law makes harsher penalties for DUI

Drivers across Pennsylvania should take notice of a new law that has gone into effect increasing punishments for first-time DUI offenders. According to WITF, Pennsylvania will join the ranks of 48 other states that mandate ignition interlock devices be installed on the vehicles of those convicted of drunk driving.
