Suffolk County Divorce Attorney, David Vallone Offers New Advice for Divorcing Parents with School Children

Centereach, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2013

A recent article from the washingtontimes.com published on August 15th shared how some newly divorced, and divorcing parents are finding back to school to be a struggle to maintain their childs mental health, and quality of life. The family law experts who contributed to the article made a strong focus on maintaining childrens schedules, and being mindful to put their school, homework, and extracurricular activities ahead of divorce related matters. Additional advice involved parent teacher conferences with both parents, as well as potential family counseling. With the new school year upon us, The Law Office of David Vallone shares new ways to avoid adding stress to children during a divorce, and how to better plan parenting time around separated parenting life, and busy school schedules.

For newly separated, divorced, or about to be divorced parents, the idea of involving children amidst the stress of a marital is a painful thought. As an experienced Suffolk County Divorce Attorney, David Vallone suggest that parents look to put their difference aside, to create a smooth back to school transition for school age children. Vallone suggests solidifying parenting time as the first priority when attempting to reduce divorce stress on children. Creating structure will remove the uncertainty many children feel on which parent will be at their after school activities, helping with homework, and scheduling weekend play dates. After structuring parenting time, Vallone suggests defining each parents involvement with schooling. While some states may holding rulings as to the balance of custody and educational decisions, exploring the options of having both parents vested in their childs/childrens education can only benefit the minor in question.

When asked about his opinion on juggling the divorce process and parenting, Vallone suggests that parents always act in the best interest of their children, making sure that education and stability are maintained and held a priority.

For inquiries regarding the divorce process, child custody and parenting time, collaborative divorce or separation, contact Mr.Vallone today to discuss your individual situation.

Closing the Colorado Blood Testing Lab Is the Wrong Move, Says Defense Attorney

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The Colorado Department of Health announced on Monday October 21 in a press release that its forensic toxicology laboratory is closed permanently as far as DUI blood testing is concerned.

The laboratory, which as recently as July handled the majority of blood tests in the State for DUI and drugged driving cases, closed after an internal report released in June revealed that there was bias toward the prosecution in the environment where the testing was being conducted. The report was detailed in a story by The New York Times on June 10, 2013 titled “Colorado State Lab Accused of Mishandling Evidence” by Jack Healey.

DUI attorney Jay Tiftickjian, of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar’s board of directors, told 9News Colorado on Monday that the decision was not the right one. Instead, he advocated for the reopening of the lab, but with better operating procedures and protocols, and legislation that made for strict compliance for the admission of blood alcohol and drug tests in court as opposed to the current legal standard of substantial compliance.

Tiftickjian told reporters at 7News The Denver Channel on Monday that the decision will cost the taxpayers of Colorado a substantial amount of money, as now blood tests in DUI cases will be outsourced to private forensics laboratories. The cost of outsourcing and paying employees of the private laboratories to testify in court will be a substantial cost. Instead, Tiftickjian argued for the State to fix the problems that existed in an effort to provide accurate, transparent, and neutral science.
