We all want to live a calm and relaxed life and we definitely do not want to be getting on the wrong side of the law at any time. We do all we can to live a wholesome lifestyle and we follow all of the laws including the rules of the road. The problem however is that no matter how hard that you try to stay on the right side of the law, sometimes the law comes looking for you in a number of forms. If you feel that your relationship is going really well and that your marriage has never been stronger, then there might be a surprise for you in the form of a request for a divorce from your partner.
This is a massive life changing event and so at a time like this you cannot let your emotions take over and you need to engage with a legal professional who knows family law. If there are children involved then it becomes even more important that you have a legal professional fighting for you in your corner and getting you what is rightfully yours. The following are just some instances where the law might find you even though you’re not looking for it in the first place.
- False eyewitness accounts – If a crime were to take place in your local area and the police were canvassing for witnesses, there is a possibility that you might be described as the person of interest when you were at home the whole time. The police will come to your home to ask questions and if you cannot answer them in full then they may want to arrest you and to take you in. At this point, you really do need a legal professional who understands criminal law because we are actually talking about a life and death situation here.
- For child custody – As was mentioned briefly before, maybe your relationship has gone south and so your partner who was likely not thinking straight wants to stop you from seeing your kids. This is not the time when you should be trying to negotiate with the other party all by yourself because you will have no ideas of child custody laws and you could end up finding yourself having no visitation rights at all.
These are just two situations when the law might come looking for you and so it’s best to be prepared and to have a legal professional on your speed dial at all times.
