How can I make my co-parenting experience easier?

Having the right mindset is key to succeeding in many areas of life, but when you are going through a difficult arrangement, such as co-parenting with a former spouse, suddenly it is not easy to stay upbeat and focused. However, making sure your child has a healthy upbringing in Maryland even if you and your spouse are no longer together is important for your offspring’s future. That is why you should separate your ex-spouse’s performance as a wife or husband from the spouse’s ability to function as a parent.

Understanding informed consent in health care

When a person in Maryland goes to the doctor, they should always know that it is their choice as to what, if any, treatments they undergo or medications they take. As explained by the American Medical Association, except in extreme emergencies, health care is not to be administered to a person without their approval or the approval of an appropriate representative acting on the patient's behalf. This is called informed consent.

Three things to do in the months leading up to a divorce

Divorce is not something that anybody goes into marriage planning on. However, as MarketWatch reports, about 2 million divorces are filed in the United States each year and about half of all marriages ultimately end in divorce. With such daunting statistics, it is only prudent for those who feel as though their marriage may be coming to an end to prepare beforehand. Divorce is a major and often stressful undertaking, but doing these three things can help mitigate some of the pressure.

When married business partners get divorced

Most people in Maryland would agree that a divorce regardless of the nature of the circumstances is never a simple experience. It tends to rock a person at the most fundamental level and even forces them to realign their hopes and dreams for the future. When a person getting divorced is married to their business partner, things can get even more complicated quickly. 

The difference between limited and absolute divorces in Maryland

You and your spouse decide that a separation will prove healthy and beneficial for you, your spouse and your children. Yet perhaps you and your spouse do not necessarily want to terminate your marriage altogether. In Maryland, two types of divorces exist. You and your spouse can determine whether each type proves best for your individual circumstances, and in doing so, you can file for separation without a permanent decree by the court.

Drunk driving death statistics in Maryland

Any person in Maryland who has been involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver knows how traumatic these experiences can be. When a loved one's life is taken due to the negligent decisions of an impaired driver, the challenges mount further. Despite widespread public awareness that driving after consuming alcohol is dangerous, too many people continue to do just this.

Misreading of tests connected to medical errors

Every year, countless residents in Maryland undergo routine screenings as part of their preventive health care and some of these involve tests that must be read by radiologists, such as mammograms. Many other people must have tests conducted to investigate problems they are experiencing. These, too, often require radiologists to read results. The importance of a radiologist properly interpreting test images cannot be overstated.
