E

very year, as Halloween rolls around, people begin seeing articles about how they can keep their kids safe during the holiday. One of the big topics is being sure to check kids’ Halloween candies for any tampering before allowing them to eat it. Unfortunately, there are people out there who think it’s fun or funny to harm people by messing with their food.

The first step to making sure your child is safe from tampered Halloween candy is to make sure that they don’t eat any of it while they are out trick or treating. Do not let them eat any of the candies until you have been able to examine it under good lighting. Check for damaged wrappers, candy that smells funny, homemade sweets from strangers, or any candy or sweets not in their original packaging.

t’s that time of the year again, and people are busily preparing for what custumes to wear this Halloween. Kids are plotting out the best route to get them as much candy as possible, while adults are figuring out which party to go to. However, something else adults should be considering, is who will be driving to the party.

If a person plans on drinking at any Halloween parties, then they need to have a designated driver (DD) or use a ride share service such as Lyft, Uber or even just a taxi. They have to do this because drinking and driving is never a good idea on any day of the year. On Halloween, it is an even worse idea.

On Halloween, kids are out and about trick or treating. This usually continues after the sun goes down...

Protecting Your Property From Creditors In California

Just because you owe a debt, it doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your home. To protect homeowners, California legislatures created a series of California homestead real estate laws that are specifically designed to ensure that non-consensual creditors drive you away from your home, or that they take the money you made from selling a piece of property. It is worth noting that these laws only protect your home from non-consensual creditors, but not voluntary liens placed against your property.

Examples of voluntary liens include:

  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Mortgages
  • Federal tax liens
  • Judgement liens (child support, spousal support)
  • Deed of trust

here are certain holidays that just call for parties, and Halloween is one of those days. While kids are out trick-or-treating in search of candy, adults are out partying with friends. While there will still likely be some candy at these parties, most adults have upgraded to something different. Many adults will be consuming alcohol while having a good time.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this, provided it is done responsibly, which is what most people do.

Due to this fact, don’t be surprised to see a rise in DUI checkpoints on Halloween.

Law enforcement officers will be doing everything in their power to keep everyone safe that night,...

The Police Towed Your Ride, Now What?

It doesn’t matter if your vehicle is towed after you’ve been pulled over and arrested for a bench warrant or because you left it parked too long in one place and someone reported it as an abandoned vehicle, learning that the police have towed your vehicle triggers a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. It’s worth noting that if a vehicle is parked on a street or public/business lot for more than a week without moving, the police consider it an abandoned vehicle and will tow it.

The fact that many police stations, especially in small towns, contacts a third-party towing service to move and store the car, makes getting your vehicle back even more complicated than if it was sent to a local garage.
