Divorcing? Don't forget about your ex's Bitcoin

Divorce is one of the most emotionally turbulent periods in life. While high-running emotions are certainly understandable during a divorce, some people allow these feelings to overrun them. Having an angry, emotional ex can complicate proceedings, dragging everything out longer than might have otherwise been necessary.

Men can also be targets for domestic violence

Domestic violence topics usually bring up the picture of an abused woman and her children. Spousal abuse is never acceptable, whether you are a man or a woman. Unfortunately, many men are also victims of abuse, and they often lack the resources to help them out of an abusive situation. At the Mayer Law Office, LLC, we know it is vital for domestic violence victims in Wisconsin to be able to get help and safely escape a violent marriage, regardless of gender.

“Swatting” is a serious offense, not merely a prank

In the online world, it can be easy to forget that real people are involved. There are some who enjoy provoking others into arguments in the comments sections of news sites or social media. Others might stalk, bully or harass people on their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feeds. While it might seem harmless, there are some Internet behaviors that cross the line and can result in criminal charges. It is important for Wisconsin residents to understand what is not permissible online, before they are accused of a crime.

How can you take care of yourself after a divorce?

The weeks and months after a divorce can be stressful. You might be relieved that your divorce is finally over with, but you could have a number of conflicting emotions, including sadness, loneliness and a general feeling of being lost. You might also feel caught up in taking care of the children and helping them adjust after the divorce. It is important for you and other Wisconsin residents to practice self-care during stressful situations, as well.

What you need to know about plea bargains

Wisconsin residents charged with a crime may be encouraged by their family, friends or attorney to enter into a plea bargain with the prosecutor for the purpose of reducing the crime with which they are charged and/or minimizing the length of time they will spend in jail or prison upon conviction. FindLaw explains that while there may be many benefits inherent in a plea bargain, defendants should know exactly what they are agreeing to do or not to do in any plea bargain. In addition, they should thoroughly understand the consequences they will face as a result of the plea bargain.
