The McIlveen Family Law Firm has jump started its summer by becoming involved with several charities around Charlotte and Gastonia. In fact, we are hosting an upcoming event for Project Halo in July!
Project Halo is a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue and sanctuary based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Project Halo is a 100% volunteer organization and is funded privately by generous donors. Without the dedicated volunteers and thoughtful donors, Project Halo would not exist. Plus, Project Halo is certified IRS 501(c)3 tax exempt and all donations are tax deductible.
Project Halo rescues homeless, stray and unwanted dogs and gives them a second chance by providing a safe and loving foster home. Project Halo provides any medical attention the dogs need while looking for a permanent loving home to adopt them. All of Project Halo’s animals are spayed or neutered and are vet current at the time of their adoption. Further, Project Halo provides a home for animals that are deemed unadoptable so that they may live out the rest of their lives in a loving, caring atmosphere.
The entire staff at the McIlveen Family Law Firm adore their dogs and other animals and are extremely excited about the opportunity to support such an amazing cause. The goal is to host the event mid-July and to provide the charity with all types of equipment and products that they need in order to keep the kennel going. We will be approaching vets, pet stores, etc. to collect items to donate to Project Halo. Also, we are obtaining 100 passes to Shopping for a Cause which is sponsored by Macy’s. These passes will be $5 each and 100% of the proceeds will be going to Project Halo. These passes will give the buyer access to discounted prices in any Macy’s store. This event is sure to be a great time for families in the Gastonia and Charlotte area.
The event will take place at the Belmont Farmer’s Market between 3:00pm-7:00pm on Friday, July 19th!
Facebook has become a divorce attorney’s dream. People post on facebook things that in the past an attorney could only have gotten by hiring a private investigator. It seems today that everyone is sharing their dirty laundry with their online friends. If you are getting a divorce or even thinking about getting a divorce take a hard look at your facebook page. Is there anything on there that you wouldn’t want your spouse, attorneys, or the judge to see?
If you have posts on your facebook page about going out drinking or who your are dating your spouse’s divorce attorney will swoop in and print them off. Those posts can be used as evidence against you in trial. Don’t forget about your friends pages either. Does Sally have a juicy photo of you out on the town posted for the world to see? If so I can find it. Also remember that Videos on YouTube, text messages, dating services, voice mail, cellphones, even Global Positioning System receivers and E-ZPass records can be gold mines of potentially damaging information.
