The genetics of criminal behavior

In any criminal matter where charges are filed, factors related to evidence, motive and intent must be thoroughly investigated and considered. Professionals like criminologists and psychologists are routinely called upon to investigate criminal activities to determine why an individual may have committed a crime and how to prevent similar crimes from occurring. However, what if some individuals are genetically predisposed to engage in criminal activities?

There should be no room for interpretation in a prenuptial agreement

Drafting and executing a prenuptial agreement prior to marrying can immensely benefit both an individual and couple down the road. The process of drafting a prenuptial agreement can serve to bring a couple who plans to marry closer as they go through the process and openly discuss their life and financial realities, fears and goals. Having such a legal document also aids a divorcing couple in expediting the division of assets, saving both spouses time and hassle.

For teens, sexting may lead to criminal charges

Today's teenagerss and young adults have grown up during the Internet and mobile age. For these youths, communicating and sharing photos via the Internet and cellphones has become second-nature. However, when it comes to sharing images that are considered to be sexually-explicit in nature, the potential social, academic and legal consequences can be severe. 

Child custody in Minnesota

In any break-up or divorce where minor-aged children are involved, matters related to child custody must be determined. When possible, parents are advised to set aside their personal differences and attempt to come together for the benefit of a shared child and resolve child custody issues. When possible, a child benefits from the emotional and financial support of both parents and no child should be deprived of the opportunity to know and form a relationship with his or her mother or father.

Minnesota's expungement law affords some a fresh start

We are all human and throughout life, make mistakes. It's from these mistakes that we learn about how our behavior and choices impact others and the resulting consequences. In cases where an individual faced or was convicted of certain misdemeanor or felony criminal charges, long after the matter is resolved, he or she is likely to experience negative implications from the fact that a criminal record exists.

Alternative sentencing programs provide hope for juvenile offenders

Growing up, every Minnesota resident can likely recall doing something they shouldn't have done and that may have even been illegal. From underage drinking to breaking and entering, teens sometimes make mistakes that can have serious and far-reaching implications.

Can you really find lasting love online?

Today, many young adults and not-so-young adults in the U.S. have more opportunities and options than did their counterparts 20 or more years ago. More women than ever are pursing higher educational degrees and choosing to work and advance careers over getting married and having children at a young age. Additionally, the Internet and mobile technology has greatly changed how people communicate and interact.

Billions at stake in couple’s dispute over validity of prenuptial agreement

Every divorce has the potential to become drawn-out and contentious. In divorces involving individuals and couples of considerable means, the likelihood of a divorce becoming a bitter dispute often increases. With often millions of assets at stake, high asset divorcees have a lot to potentially gain or lose in a divorce settlement.

Case illustrates the importance of abiding by marriage license laws

A marriage license is an official document that a couple must obtain in order for a marriage to be legally recognized. Rules and requirements with regard to how a couple who plans to marry must go about obtaining a marriage license and fulfilling its terms vary state to state and procedures and fees may even vary by county.
