1 injured in auto accident involving swimmer Ryan Lochte

A man recently suffered injuries in a Florida car crash reportedly caused by an Olympic athlete. The auto accident, which involved swimmer Ryan Lochte, occurred on a Thursday night. The accident just so happened to occur less than 24 hours after an apparently inebriated Lochte is said to have kicked his hotel room door, which prompted a visit by police.

The car accident took place at about 9:45 p.m. According to authorities, the athlete was heading home on a highway and suddenly crashed into the back of a car. The incident happened when the person driving the car in front of him reportedly hit his breaks quickly.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can help during divorce

The idea of getting married can understandably be exciting, but unfortunately, not all couples end up experiencing happily ever after. In addition to leading to emotional challenges, this can lead to financial problems, especially for those who are business owners. However, business owners in Florida can protect themselves from the negative impacts of divorce in a couple of ways.

First, it may behoove business owners to create and sign prenuptial agreements before they walk down the aisle. Prenuptial agreements, or prenups, are written agreements between those who are about to get married that establish what would be treated as separate property during a divorce proceeding. Those preparing to get married must execute a prenup before witnesses without coercion. In addition, they must fully disclose their financial situations, and their agreement cannot be too lopsided.

Rate of divorce taking a dive nationally

According to new research, young adults in Florida and other states are choosing to stick together in marriage. For this reason, marriages among members of the millennial generation are not ending as quickly as marriages did in the past. As a result, the divorce rate is on the decline nationally.

Researchers recently reported that one of the reasons that fewer young people are getting divorced today is that they are delaying marriage. Instead of jumping into holy matrimony, women are focusing on achieving their personal, career and financial goals first. This is opposite of what happened in the past, when women tended to get married at younger ages.

Individuals can protect their mental health during divorce

Getting divorced can be just as tough mentally as it can be financially. This is the case whether two people have been married for five years or for 50 years. However, those going through the divorce process in Florida can take a couple of steps to protect their mental health along with their emotional well-being.

First off, those going through divorce would be wise to treat the other party in as fair a manner as possible, particularly when tackling the division of debts and property. During the divorce proceeding, a spouse can easily get stuck on trying to acquire more money or other property than the other spouse. The reality, though, is that none of this extra property will matter a decade from the finalizing of the divorce. What matters instead is that the individual stands up for himself or herself while working toward a just resolution.

Who gets the dog in a divorce?

Divorce can get messy. Spouses are debating on who gets the house, the boat or pool table. When children are involved, matters become more stressful. Then, there’s the family dog: No one wants to give up such a loyal companion. What goes into deciding where the dog goes after a divorce?

Car accident leads to 1 death, 2 injuries

A man in Florida recently lost his life in a tragic automobile wreck. The car accident, which took place on a Wednesday morning, involved two motor vehicles. The man who died in the collision was 27 years old.

The accident occurred at around 9:45 a.m. According to authorities, a car had come to a stop on State Road 100 because the driver needed to make a left turn onto Northwest 140th Avenue and was therefore waiting on traffic. However, the person driving another car behind it did not slow down. The second car ended up rear-ending the first one.

Divorce can make beginning of school year more complicated

Beginning a brand-new school year in Florida can be both exciting and nerve wracking for any child. However, it can be especially intimidating for a child whose parents are going through divorce. After all, transitioning from having one household to having two households can make entering a new school year even more complicated. However, if the child's divorcing parents can remain communicative with the child, this can make the process a lot less stressful.

Although grades and academics are certainly important, developing healthy relationships is another important aspect of going to school. In addition, helping children to learn how to become comfortable with being uncomfortable, take part in extracurricular activities and sports, and even claim their first jobs is critical for helping them to become self-sufficient. For this reason, divorcing parents would be wise to discuss with their children what their objectives for this coming school year and then record the three top ones on which all parties agree.

The accident occurred at a little before 6:15 a.m. According to authorities, a 28-year-old man was headed north in his SUV and suddenly lost control of the motor vehicle. That is when the SUV entered a semi-truck's path and sparked a series of collisions involving three extra automobiles.

Can the dog still compete after the owner’s death?

As a show dog owner, you are proud of the time and effort taken to showcase your lovely pet to the world. However, as it is a delicate and expensive practice, you need to be ready for the unexpected regardless of how much you do not want to think about it.

If a show dog owner unexpectedly dies and has not planned for what happens to their pet, it can be a long and complicated legal battle between parties to determine the outcome. If you want your dog to continue to compete after your passing, it is important to be aware of the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) guidelines of how to register them.
