Struggling with debt is never easy. It can be frustrating to work through these financial troubles, but for some, these troubles only get worse with time.

Whether it is due to a job loss, injury, illness or other financial catastrophe, for some the only real debt solution is filing for bankruptcy.
Owning a pet is very typical for residents in Georgia. For those that consider themselves dog people, there are many responsibilities that come with being a dog owner. This goes beyond ensuring that their dog is fed, bathed, healthy and taken care of. Dog owners have the responsibility of protecting the public from their dog. While it may not be apparent that a dog has dangerous propensities, if a dog owner fails to warn visitors about their dog's behaviors or allows their dog to run at large, the dog owner may be responsible for any injuries caused by the dog.
Safety advocates and lawmakers across the nation have been alarmed by the number of car accidents involving drivers who are distracted by their cellphones and other digital devices.
Law enforcement offices throughout the state of Georgia have the legal authority to use and execute sobriety checkpoints.
