Understanding the penalties for a first DWI

A DWI conviction can come with serious penalties in Minnesota, even for people facing a first offense in an incident where no one was injured. To be arrested for DWI, an individual must usually be found in control of a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. Of course, this applies to people pulled over while driving, but it can also apply to those found in their parked vehicles.

Planning for co-parenting during the summer season

Parents in Minnesota may face some challenges adapting to co-parenting after divorce. It can always be difficult to move from parenting full time to sharing the process, especially after the parents' romantic relationship is no longer in place. For the children, changes in schedule and increased uncertainty can make the transition more troublesome. However, the school year can help smooth some of these concerns as it provides ongoing stability and a consistent schedule even as kids become accustomed to moving back and forth between their parents' homes. The summer can create its own challenges for co-parenting families, but parents can help to ease the process by keeping some tips in mind.
