There are undoubtedly times when you are driving where you are faced with a hazard created by another driver.

Whether you are currently going through a divorce or you are considering filing papers, there are a myriad of issues to tackle. If there are children involved in your situation, the process becomes more complicated, as you must determine what type of living arrangement is best for your kids.
