A motorist who has not slept for 24 hours is as impaired as one who has consumed five alcoholic drinks, yet an Automobile Association of America study suggests that about a third of them have chosen to get behind the wheel while dangerously tired at least once during the last 30 days. The dangers of drowsy driving are well known, but a growing body of research reveals that a worrying number of drivers in Minnesota and around the country are aware of the risks and take their chances anyway.
The decision on whether to keep or sell the family home in a divorce may be one of the biggest decisions a former Minnesota couple has to make. Many couples decide to just sell the family home and split the proceeds as this is usually the easiest way to divide this asset. However, if there are kids involved or the home has a sentimental value, one person may wish to keep the home.
One of the primary concerns for people involved in a divorce is making sure they receive a property settlement that gives them a secure financial start to their newly single lives. They focus on dividing assets and may not give enough thought to dividing debts.
