Am I eligible for unemployment benefits?

If you have recently lost your job, you are likely worried about your future financial security. Any savings that you have will be whittling away quickly, and you may be relying on financial support from family and friends. It can take time to find a new job that will provide the same level of income that you are accustomed to. This is why it is possible to gain unemployment benefits from the government in certain situations.

Only certain job seekers are eligible for unemployment benefits. The reason for your job loss and your attitude toward finding new employment can determine whether you will be able to collect unemployment benefits. The following is an overview of some of the eligibility requirements.

Understanding shoplifting laws in Missouri

If you have been accused of shoplifting, the charges you face will depend on the state in which the alleged act occurred. In Missouri, shoplifting is not treated as a specific crime. Rather, it is charged as a type of theft. The consequences faced after being found guilty of theft in Missouri usually depend on the value of the property stolen.

It is important that you understand the charges associated with shoplifting or other types of theft in Missouri. You should also take the time to consider how you want to defend yourself.

Kansas doesn’t take DUIs lightly, and neither should you

Alcohol and driving don’t mix well. In 2017, the Kansas Department of Transportation reported 1,993 alcohol-related crashes. Eighty-one of those were fatal, and the majority of the drivers were college-aged men.

In addition to safety concerns, there are a number of very serious consequences for impaired driving in the state of Kansas. These include jailtime and hefty fines. If you’re an underage driver, you could be facing up to a year in jail, fines up to a few thousand dollars, and, among other consequences, having to install an ignition interlock device.

What will your speeding ticket cost you in Kansas?

Whether you're in a hurry or just a little impatient, everyone winds up speeding eventually. For others, speeding is a more chronic problem which increases your risk for serious injury. In 2016, speeding was the second-leading cause of death in fatal motor vehicle crashes. There were roughly 400 more fatalities because of unbelted drivers, but it's possible that some of those drivers could have also been speeding.

Speeding is a common and costly traffic violation. Between paying the fine associated with the violation and any increase in your insurance premium, speeding is expensive. The state of Kansas can also suspend your driver's license for too many traffic violations, which means that you must also pay any reinstatement fees and complete any court-ordered requirements before having your license reinstated.
