Understanding mineral rights

Does your property have surface rights or mineral rights? If so, it's important that you understand the difference between the two. Surface rights mean that you have the right to the enjoyment and use of property above ground. Mineral rights are the right to explore the property for the existence of gas, oil and other naturally occurring minerals in a gaseous or liquid form. If located, the property can be developed in order to produce the minerals.

Marital property law basics

Getting divorced means that the life you and your husband have built together is going to drastically change. Not only are you physically separating from each other, but you will also be dividing time with your children and splitting your marital property.

Don't wait too long to notify your employer of an injury

Workers' compensation insurance is put in place to protect both you, as a worker, and your employer. However, there are a number of ways that you might suffer a legitimate injury on the job and still have your workers' compensation claim denied. Often, attorneys warn about accepting a workers' compensation settlement too readily, but if you wait too long to take action, you may miss out on proper compensation altogether.

Was alimony awarded in your divorce? Then keep track of it

When it comes to divorce, there are a lot of contentious issues that can cause former spouses to argue and debate. One such issue is spousal support, which is also often called alimony. Spousal support is awarded in some, but not all, divorce cases. It sees one of the spouses pay the other spouse on either a temporary or indefinite basis so that the post-divorce life of the spouses are roughly fair in the eyes of a judge. Remember, though, "fair" in this context doesn't mean "equal."

Tesla says new law meant to keep them out of state

On June 6, the governor of Louisiana signed a bill into law that will keep auto manufacturers from selling their vehicles directly to buyers. Senate Bill 107, which was sponsored by Sen. Mack "Bodi" White, R-Baton Rouge, will strengthen other legislation meant to do the same thing. According to Tesla, though, the bill was nothing more than a move by special interests to keep the company from moving into Louisiana.
