Bangerter Law December 2018



FROM THE DESK OF Matthew Bangerter

If you or someone you know has been charged with a DUI or other crime, you may feel lost or overwhelmed by the legal process.

I’ve written a free book answering some of the following common questions:

How do people unknowingly and unintentionally hurt themselves and their cases? What are the most common misconceptions about arrests in criminal cases?

What does it mean to be indicted?

How do your Miranda rights affect your case?

Thanksgiving break was just a test; now you have a whole month with your college kid! It’s exciting when your child returns home for winter break, but you have to be prepared. This isn’t the same teen you dropped off this summer. They’ve had new experiences, been thrown into awkward situations, and fended for themselves for months. One thing will never change, though: They will always be your kid. They’re the same person who grew up causing a ruckus in your home, teasing their younger siblings, and laughing their way through plenty of family memories. If you’re worried about your college-aged kiddo returning home, remember these tips for a stress-free winter break. Thanksgiving break wasn’t enough time for you to experience the intricacies of a relationship with your newly independent kid. When they come home this winter, they may push against any rules you have in place. In contrast, they’re also going to soak up all the wonders of home that they missed, like meals, cable TV, and a familiar bed. When your kid first comes home for the month, celebrate the successful semester! Then set some guidelines. Will there be a curfew? Will they be expected to feed and clothe themselves? Is their room still theirs or is it now your home gym? Can they drink or smoke at home? Whatever works for your family is fine, but if you don’t establish some ground rules right away, you’re in for a few tumultuous weeks. ‘MOM, I’M AN ADULT NOW …WHAT’S FOR DINNER?’
