When noncustodial parents refuse to pay child support

Most Minnesota parents understand that if they have primary or sole physical custody of their children, they are entitled to child support from the noncustodial parent. The child support payments help to pay for the costs of raising the children. In order to receive child support from the noncustodial parent, however, the custodial parent must first locate them in order to get the process started. If the noncustodial parent is avoiding their financial responsibility, this could be difficult.

Synthetic drug makers try to stay a step ahead of authorities

Media outlets in Minnesota and around the country have covered several stories about the proliferation of dangerous synthetic drugs such as bath salts and spice. These narcotic compounds are developed by drug makers to circumvent federal or state drug laws, and they are often offered for sale in grocery stores and other retail outlets for short periods. The reason that these drugs are usually pulled off store shelves fairly swiftly is because lawmakers generally act quickly to close legal loopholes and update drug laws.

A parent's relocation after a divorce

After Minnesota parents go through a divorce, one of them may meet a new partner who lives some distance away. That parent may then want to relocate in order to live with the new partner. It is important for both parents in such situations to keep their children's best interests in mind.

Police kits often mistake common substances for illegal drugs

While police officers in Minnesota have generally dependable breath testing equipment for suspected drunk drivers, their portable chemical tests for suspected drug possession may not be as reliable. Police departments like these kits because they are easy to use and often cost as little as $2 a piece. However, several leading civil rights advocates and criminal defense attorneys have questioned the quick-ID kits' reliability.

How divorce affects children

Many of the people who get divorced each year in Minnesota are parents of young children. In fact, all of the divorces that occur in the United States affect around 1 million children every year. Many of these children will have some trouble adjusting to their new family structure, but the problems that they experience will usually resolve over time.

Attorneys report increase in prenups for millennials

Minnesota millennials may be among those throughout the country who are signing prenuptial agreements in growing numbers, and the reasons may include an older age at marriage, the acquisition of family money, and entrepreneurship. With a prenup in place, people may protect assets they bring into a marriage in the event of divorce or their death. A prenup might also ensure that a business owner remains in control of their company and profits.
