Visit the full page: chmlaw.com/stimulus-child-tax-credit-divorce-child-support/ As of June 1, 2021, the Government has issued three rounds of economic stimulus payments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, starting next month (July 2021), millions of parents across the country will also begin receiving monthly child tax credit payments. As a result, many of our clients have been naturally asking how stimulus and child tax credit payments will be allocated by the Family Court. To answer this question, let’s take a deep dive into each round of stimulus benefits. The first round of COVID-19 related stimulus payments were issued in 2020 as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (a.k.a. CARES) Act. The maximum benefit for this round of stimulus checks was $1,200 per single filer, or $2,400 for joint filers, plus $500 for each qualifying child. Eligibility for this round of stimulus checks was based on Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). Single filers with an AGI below $75,000 earned the maximum benefit, whereas joint filers with an AGI below $150,000 earned the maximum benefit. Head of Household filers with an AGI below $112,500 also earned the full benefit. Have Questions About How Stimulus and Child Tax Credit is Handled in a Divorce?

How To Manipulate The Blood And Breath Test Results Below The Legal Limit
Visit the full page: https://www.chmlaw.com/how-to-manipulate-blood-and-breath-test/ How to Manipulate the Blood and Breath Test Results Below the Legal Limit Our DUI attorneys at CHM Law are often asked, what do you do if the blood results are over a .08, the legal limit in Arizona. Fortunately, it is possible to manipulate a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) if your attorney is well versed in the science. Unfortunately, too many attorneys just plead their clients guilty because they do not understand how to move the blood alcohol concentration lower. Inherent in a blood test is a 5% margin of error according to the prosecutor’s own expert witness. However, our expert will testify that there is a 10% margin of error in the instrument. This means the BAC can be 10% higher, lower, or anywhere in between the reported value. The prosecutor has the burden of proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt. Thus, the defendant gets the benefit of the doubt that the reading is 10% lower. It is important to keep in mind that all of these variables are still in effect even if the instrument is in perfect working order. If you need immediate assistance, call us now at (602) 932-2999, day or night to speak with a defense attorney. Otherwise, continue listening.

But what makes this crime a felony? Continue listening to learn why firing a gun can be considered a reckless offense that leads to hefty penalties. This crime is considered a dangerous offense that can make even first-time offenders serve time in prison.

Having a felony on your record can have serious ramifications, including losing the right to even own a firearm. The attorneys at Colburn Hintze Maletta are just a call away and capable of helping you get your charges reduced or even dismissed completely. The name “Shannon’s Law” was settled upon after teenager Shannon Smith was struck with a stray bullet. She was in the backyard of her Phoenix home when the incident took place. Unfortunately, Shannon, who was just 14 years old at that time, was fatally struck by the stray bullet. The Arizona legislature passed Shannon’s Law in 1999 when the public was angered even further at the fact that the offender could only be charged with a misdemeanor. This meant unlawful discharge of firearms became a felony. Colburn Hintze Maletta Criminal Defense Attorneys (602)932-2999 www.chmlaw.com Address: 2150 E. Highland Ave, Suite 212, Phoenix, AZ 85016
