New Jersey residents less likely to divorce

Posted by on Nov 9, 2015 in Divorce, Home Page | 0 comments

New Jersey residents may be slow when it comes to going to the altar, but when they do, they’re likely to stay married longer. Less than 9 percent of married couples will get a divorce, according to the latest census data Census data indicates that New Jersey has both the lowest marriage and divorce rates in the country. The low marriage rate may be due to residents waiting until they’re older to say their wedding vows. Because they’re older and have attained their educational goals, they may be more financially stable that folks who marry right out of high school. And if they divorce, they’re not as likely to rush into second or third marriages as couples do in other states. While couples do not necessarily rush toward divorce court, they do get divorced. They face the same stressors as couples everywhere: Money, children, unhappy work situations, meddling in-laws and sex are just some of the factors leading couples to consult with New Jersey divorce attorneys. Money may be the biggest factor in Garden State divorces, even though state residents have one of the highest median household incomes in the United States. Even with a low divorce rate, not all marriages are beds of roses. People change as they grow older; spouses grow apart. They feel they’ll be happier leading lives than married ones. Residents contemplating divorce may wish to meet with a New Jersey divorce attorney to discuss their options. The attorneys at Thomas & Krail LLC are well qualified to answer questions on divorce and guide their clients through the process. Divorce is never easy but Thomas & Krail LLC work hard to lessen the burden at this stressful time....

New Jersey Speeding Ticket Attorney

Posted by on Nov 6, 2015 in Criminal Law, Home Page, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Almost everyone has had the unfortunate experience of receiving a speeding ticket. While these tickets are common, many are not aware of the legal consequences involved with admitting to a speeding ticket. These include fines, driving record points and increased insurance rates. Speeding tickets may be challenged and possibly dismissed. A New Jersey speeding ticket attorney can review your case, advise you of the potential consequences, and help you challenge the ticket. Speeding ticket cases are not as straight-forward as they may seem. To be guilty of speeding, there must be reliable and credible evidence that you did in fact exceed the speed limit. All too often drivers rely on an officer’s word and do not inquire into the actual evidence. Typically, police officers will use speed detection devices to establish speeding. Police are required to follow specific procedures to establish reliability of these devices. Sometimes, officers fail to follow the procedures and the information obtained from the device cannot be considered against you. Officers also will use visual estimations of speed, which can also be called into question by a speeding ticket attorney. Police may have been mistaken about the actual posted speed limit, which can be pointed out in your defense. Often, the process of proving the speeding ticket is time consuming and expensive for the prosecution, so an attorney can negotiate a lesser penalty. This can save you money on fines and prevent adverse consequences related to your driving record. A speeding ticket attorney will be familiar with the common negotiation tactics. If you have received a speeding ticket in New Jersey, contact a New Jersey speeding ticket attorney immediately to learn your options. The attorneys at Thomas & Krail have experience defending those dealing with speeding tickets. Contact Thomas & Krail today to schedule a...
