For some, the beginning of a new calendar year marks an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and to start over without any negative carryover. It is in this spirit that some choose to draft resolutions and goals for themselves to reach as they aim to better themselves in the coming months.

When a court issues an order regarding the outcome of a legal matter, the parties who were part of the underlying legal matter may be bound to certain actions through the judgment of the court. For example, when two Tennessee parents go through a child custody hearing, they will be bound to the court's order regarding their shared time with their children. Similarly, when a party asks for an order of protection against someone they have accused of domestic violence, the accused party may be restricted in their actions and activities if an order is issued.
It is not uncommon for Tennessee parents to want to provide their kids with better lives than they had when they were growing up.

When establishing a child custody plan, parents and courts have to look at how best to serve the unique needs of a child.
Most Tennessee drivers have heard of breathalyzer tests. A breathalyzer test is an assessment undertaken by a law enforcement official upon a person that they believe was driving while under the influence of alcohol.
