- Before each flight, a good (and smart) pilot will analyze the weather conditions at the departure airport, the en-route weather, and the destination's forecasted weather. In conducting the analysis, the pilot will ask: Am I going to be taking off into a storm? Will it be a turbulent flight or a smooth ride? Is it going to be a bright and sunny trip, or will we be in the clouds for most of the flight? Can we make it to the destination, or do we need an alternate plan? Analyzing the weather is a fundamental step in preparing for a successful and safe flight., Author, What can solo small firm practitioners learn from pilots?, Res Gestae, Legal, 2021

- The divorcing spouses or a judge can make decisions about the division of marital assets after a divorce. The division of marital and separate property in the property distribution is governed by state law. In most cases, each spouse will receive a share of their joint property's overall value. Despite the fact that it is illegal, one spouse may attempt to conceal assets in order to avoid property split. A person can utilize a variety of strategies to hide their possessions. However, hidden assets can be discovered and made accessible for a fair division after a divorce., Is your spouse trying to hide marital assets during your divorce?, Family Law, General Public, 2022
- When filing for divorce in Indiana, it's critical to do it in the proper court. At least one party must have lived in the State of Indiana for at least six months before filing a petition for dissolution or a petition for legal separation. A resident of Indiana or a member of the United States military stationed in Indiana can be the Indiana party. The county in which the petition is filed in Indiana will be determined by the parties' residences within the state. When both parties live in the same county, they usually only have one filing choice. Some parties physically separate well before petitioning for divorce or legal separation, and at the time of filing, they may reside in two different counties. The petition must be submitted in a county where at least one of the parties has lived for three months. To file a dissolution or legal separation petition, the law requires the following residency requirements are met by at least one of the parties:, In What Indiana County Should I File for Divorce?, Family Law, General Public, 2022
