Attorney fees treated as domestic support obligation

Kentucky debtors who are considering filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection might be interested in learning about a case that more clearly defines what a domestic support obligation includes. Domestic support obligations are not able to be discharged in bankruptcy. In Chapter 13 plans, they are considered to be priority debts that must be paid in full during the repayment plan period.

What can we expect with self-driving cars?

If one is to believe news reports, self-driving, or driverless cars could be on American roads within the next five to 10 years. While these estimates may be overly optimistic, the fact remains that both domestic and foreign automakers are investing millions in this technology. In addition, Google and transportation companies such as Lyft and Uber are also making substantial investments in self-driving technology.

Dealing with insurance companies is rarely easy.

Despite the dangers, too many motorists text while driving

Driving a motor vehicle requires a person's full attention at all times. Unfortunately, as smartphones have become commonplace in everyday life, many people text, surf the Internet, or engage in social media forums, like Twitter and Facebook while behind the wheel. The average amount of time someone looks at their phone while driving is roughly five seconds. Someone who takes their eyes off the road for five seconds while driving 55 miles per hour travels the length of a football field. Considering these dangers, the consequences of distracted driving are both predictable and tragic.
