What Happens If I Refuse a Chemical Test in New York?

When a driver is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, police will often administer field sobriety tests when they execute a traffic stop. After the tests, or if the driver refuses the request, the officer will need to make a decision whether to make an arrest. If police decide to make an arrest, the driver will then be asked to submit to a chemical test for blood alcohol content determination.

Consequences of Underage DWI

The seriousness of a DWI charge in New York is all too familiar to anyone that has been through the system. Each year it seems that the legislature puts new rules in place that increase the penalties for those who are convicted. Drivers under the age of 21 also need to know about some of the challenges that they may be facing, as there are many issues that could have possible negative consequences for those under 21.

Spousal Support an Equal Opportunity Matter

For many years, alimony - also called spousal support or spousal maintenance -was thought to be only awarded to women. This is not surprising, given the gender roles of the time that allowed women to stay at home with their children, while their husbands went to work to provide for the family. In an event of a divorce, these women - who had been out of the job market for years - needed help getting back on their feet.
