b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_435670558.jpgIf you have been charged with DUI, you may be facing several issues such as shame, depression, and social stigma. Fortunately, you can get your life back on track after a DUI conviction and learn from your mistake. Here are several tips that will help you get through this hurdle and move forward with your life.

  1. Seek Treatment If Necessary. In some cases, a DUI was the result of one bad decision. However, if you often find yourself getting behind the wheel while intoxicated, you may have an alcohol addiction. If you believe you have an alcohol issue that is affecting your life, career, and relationships, you should seek treatment by contacting your doctor or a local treatment center.
  2. Seek Support. Facing a DUI can be an overwhelming experience. Therefore, you should seek support from your family, close friends, or even a professional counselor. Resolving problems on your own could do more harm than good so it is important that you take advantage of loved ones and professionals who have your best interest in mind.
  3. Forgive Your Mistake. Tell yourself that nobody is perfect and one mistake does not make you a bad person. You should accept that you were caught driving under the influence, forgive yourself, and do everything in your power to avoid another DUI charge in the future.
  4. Find a Hobby You Enjoy. One of the most effective ways to take your mind off your DUI and unleash some stress is to find a hobby you enjoy. Some examples of hobbies you should consider are joining a fantasy football league, bird watching, bowling, yoga, cooking, and woodworking.
  5. Create a List of Goals. Rather than focusing on your DUI conviction and what happened in your past, you should focus on your future by creating a list of goals. Think about where you want to be in 5, 10, and 15 years from now and ask yourself what you can do to make your dreams a reality.
  6. Reach Out to an Experienced DUI Attorney. DUI laws are complex and difficult to understand. To ensure that your rights are protected and increase your chances of avoiding a conviction, you should consult an experienced DUI attorney. They can evaluate your case and may be able to design a strong defense strategy that can improve your situation.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-24.jpgIf you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you may be wondering how to break the news to your children. The truth is informing your children that you are going to get a divorce is a difficult task. Fortunately, there are several ways you can reduce the pain and discomfort of this conversation and give your children the peace of mind they deserve. Here are five tips you should keep in mind when you tell your children about your divorce:

  1. Wait Until The Decision Has Been Finalized. You should avoid telling your children about your divorce unless you and your spouse have made a final decision. It is a good idea to wait until you have signed the divorce paperwork and custody documents and one of you is about to move out. 
  2. Make It Clear That It is Not Your Children’s Fault. Oftentimes, children wrongly believe that a divorce is their fault. You should make it a priority to make it clear to your children that your divorce has nothing to do with them. Simply tell them that you and your spouse grew apart or no longer get along well as a couple. 
  3. Refrain From Blaming. Although it may be easier said than done, you and your spouse should refrain from blaming one another in front of your children. If you blame one another, your children are more likely to choose sides and be upset with one, if not both, of you. 
  4. Do Not Share Inappropriate Information. The adult details of your divorce should stay between you and your spouse.  If you share inappropriate information with your children, they may resent you. Therefore, it is in your best interest to keep the conversation focused on your children rather than on you and your spouse. Let your children know when they will see you and your spouse, whether they will be moving, and other details that will affect their lives.
  5. Choose the Right Time. You should wait until you and your spouse are feeling emotionally stable and ready to support your children. Letting their teacher,  guidance counselor, and other close family members know before you tell them is a wise decision. Do not break the news to them before their birthday or another special occasion, or in a public setting.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design.jpgDivorce can be emotionally difficult and if you are not cautious, it can hurt your economic future. If you are going through a divorce, you should make every effort to avoid the following five common financial mistakes that can cost you a lot of money and leave you in a bad financial situation in the future.

1. Becoming House Poor. Often times, the family house gets kept by one spouse after the divorce. Whether you would like to keep the house because of your children or because you are simply attached to it or have invested money into it over the years, you should make sure you can comfortably afford to keep possession of your home. You may find that paying the mortgage and maintaining the house on your own will make you house poor and unable to afford the lifestyle you would like. 

2.  Thinking Short Term. It is common for divorcing couples to focus their attention on short-term problems and benefits rather than thinking long term. By thinking about how every financial decision you make in your divorce will affect you in 5, 10, 15, and 20 years, you can reduce your risk of making a mistake.

Delafield real estate during divorce attorneyIt is often a good idea to refinance your home before rather than after divorce proceedings. This is particularly true if you own a home that is jointly held by you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse. In the event your home is jointly held, you will be able to sell the property or have one person’s name removed from the deed. If you choose to remove a name from the deed, you should consider refinancing before divorce proceedings for the following reasons:

  1. Your Credit Score May Drop. During a divorce, spouses will typically undergo many financial changes. If you share accounts with your spouse, your credit rating may go down when these accounts are closed. In addition, legal fees during your divorce proceedings can hurt your finances and credit as well. Therefore, it is a smart move to refinance your mortgage before your credit score takes a hit, so that you will not be left with a higher interest rate and higher monthly payments. 
  1. It Can Be Difficult to Refinance After a Divorce. All too often, couples do not remove one spouse’s name from their mortgage until their divorce has been finalized. The spouse keeping the home will be seeking a new loan, but they may not be able to land one that is suitable for their needs. If this occurs, a spouse may be unable to take over the mortgage, because a lender may refrain from approving a single borrower with a credit score and income that is lower than what was displayed on the combined application. Refinancing complications will then arise, and the spouse who will no longer be living in the house may still be required to contribute to mortgage payments.
  1. Plans Can Change During Divorce. While you may have originally hoped to divide your assets in a civil manner, the strong emotions that can arise during divorce proceedings can cause opinions to change. For this reason, it is better to make financial decisions, especially large ones that are related to your home, before matters between you and your spouse get emotional.
  1. Asset Protection. Asset protection should always be on your mind when you are going through a divorce. You should be thinking about your current life as well as the future to avoid bad scenarios. For example, if the name of your ex-spouse is listed on your mortgage and title, and they get in trouble with the IRS down the road, your home could be at risk. By refinancing right away to secure sole ownership, you can avoid these types of issues and protect your assets.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-40.jpgOne of the financial consequences of a DUI conviction is higher car insurance rates. The amount your car insurance rate will increase will depend on several factors such as your car insurance company, age, the time that has passed since your DUI, and the number of DUIs you have had. Let’s take a closer look at how a DUI will affect your car insurance.

What is an SR22?

Contrary to popular belief, SR22 is not a type of car insurance. It is actually a certificate that your car insurance company files with the Wisconsin DMV to ensure that you have a car insurance policy. If you would like to reinstate your driver’s license after being convicted of a DUI, reckless driving, driving without insurance, or any other similar traffic violation, you will need an SR22 for five years. In the event you fail to pay your insurance premiums during that time frame, your SR22 will be canceled and an SR26 will be filed. The filing of the SR26 will suspend your license until a new SR22 is filed.
