Whether you’re crossing things off your packing list and ready to hit the road, or you’re crossing your fingers that your kids will come home safe from partying at the beach, there are probably one or two legal questions running through your mind as you get ready for spring break. What if your flight gets cancelled? Does your driver’s license work in other countries? How serious are DUI laws in Florida?
Lucky for you, spring breakers, we have those answers and more right here:
If you’re hitting the road for spring break, make sure you know, and follow, the rules of the road. And if you’re flying the friendly skies to your vacation destination, there are TSA, FAA, and other air travel regulations with which to comply.
Holidays can be a stressful time for families, especially those dealing with custody and visitation. Can your ex whisk your kids away to Mexico for a week? And, if so, how much notice do you need?

What if your holiday went haywire? If your spring break was a disaster, or you’re returning home to one, here’s what you need to know.
