When my husband I decided to start a business, we didn't think about the legal aspects of doing so. We didn't realize that purchasing business insurance, getting building permits and making investments all required some type of legal advice. But after speaking to a close friend, who also happens to own a small business, we contacted a business attorney. Now, we have the legal smarts to make the best decisions for our business, as well as the legal representation in case something happens to our company. I hope that you find my blog helpful and informative for your own business. It's a great resource for finding the legal advice, resources and guidance you need to get your company up and running.

In some cases, the patients were diagnosed with diseases they did not have, and in other cases, the doctors failed to find diseases that were present. In both instances, patients were caused unnecessary mental anguish before the situation was resolved. In cases of medical misdiagnosis, patients experienced either too much treatment, the wrong treatment, or not enough treatment.

Every divorce decree and custody arrangement is slightly different. In some the courts dictate all time-sharing arrangements, whereas in others it is left to the parties to decide. No matter which type of arrangement you have in place, if you are a non-custodial parent who has visitation rights, part of your summer visitation should include a vacation for you and your child. This will help the bond between you and your child, as well as build memories which will last a lifetime.

Are you getting divorced in Utah and are considering asking for spousal support? Spousal support used to be called alimony and was traditionally awarded to women in the past, as women were traditionally housewives who needed financial support to pay their bills after a divorce. Today, spousal support can be awarded to a spouse of either gender, though judges prefer to not award it at all. In the modern era, both spouses are generally expected to work and support themselves.
