Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and the Breath Test

Breath TestBlood alcohol content (or BAC) is used to measure the amount of alcohol found in your bloodstream.  It can also be known as blood alcohol concentration, blood alcohol level, or blood ethanol concentration.  A person’s BAC can be determined by a breat test which may be administered by a police officer if you are suspected of driving while intoxicated.  Many factors influence an individual’s blood alcohol content, including gender, weight, the amount of food in your stomach, and your metabolic tolerance.  If an individual is suspected of drunk driving and given a breat test, they will be found guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI) if they are found to have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or greater in New Jersey.  If you have been arrested for DWI, you should contact an attorney immediately.  At Villani & DeLuca we are experienced in DWI matters and can help you prepare your defense.  Call us today for a free consultation at 732-965-3350.

Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets

The equitable distribution of marital assets is the division of marital property when a marriage comes to an end through a divorce.  Equitable distribution of property in New Jersey involves both personal property and real estate.  It typically does not matter whether property was acquired individually or jointly.  As long as the property was acquired during the marriage, it is subject to equitable distribution.  One exception to this is that any property received in an inheritance is excluded from equitable distribution.  Generally, assets acquired either before or after the marriage are not subject to equitable distribution. The date of filing of the divorce complaint is often treated as the cutoff date for equitable distribution, meaning that any property acquired after that date is often not distributed.  Marital fault is not a factor in equitably dividing property acquired during the marriage.  If you have made the decision to get divorced, you should contact Villani & DeLuca so one of our experienced Eatontown divorce attorneys can work with you to protect your rights and interests throughout the divorce process.  Call us today for a free consultation at 732-965-3350.
