Happy Father's Day from Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A. As times change and society advances so does the way we celebrate Father's Day. Some customs change, but the sentiment stays the same - to demonstrate our love and make this day special for our fathers. Fathers Day is about family with the focus on dad. It should not be about expensive gifts but rather family values and a recognition of Dad's contribution to the family. It's about a Dad's relationship with his son or daughter. It's a day to say thanks with little things like hand made crafts, a hand written Fathers Day card, a photo album or something else personal. Breakfast in bed, a nice gift and a lovely Fathers Day dinner are also welcome but not the main reason or message behind Fathers Day. Throughout history we see the roles that father's play in the family change. The stereotype father is the one who has been out working all day to provide all necessities for their family. As times have changed we see that, today, not all fathers work outside the home. Many have taken the responsibility of raising the children while the mother works. In this world we only have the opportunity to have one father and that alone shows us how important celebrating his fatherhood is. As with any other job done we all like to feel appreciated from time to time and the job of being a father is no exception. He has been there all through your life helping you along the way. Whatever the situation, Fathers Day is about honoring Dad, for all that he has given and continued to contribute to the family. We, at Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett want to wish all the Dads and Grandads in our lives a Very Happy Father's Day.

Before you renew your License

Be Prepared for New Driver License And ID Requirements

Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A.

Due to Homeland Security we must be prepared for the new  documentation requirements which took place on January 1, 2010,  for Florida residents wishing to obtain a driver license or identification card. Those wishing to obtain a new license, legally change their name prior to their renewal date, or immediately replace a lost or stolen license or ID card will be required to visit a driver license office and show proof of: 1) identification, 2) Social Security number and 3) residential address (two items). Those simply renewing may do so by a convenience method, via the Internet or mail, one time between office renewals. The renewal following a convenience option must be in a state driver license office (or participating tax collector office) where new requirements will be in effect. Florida law was enacted to ensure the state’s compliance with the provisions of the Federal Real ID Act. Despite the recent extension of deadlines by the Department of Homeland Security, Florida will continue its efforts to provide the most secure credentials and issuance processes possible, benefitting both our citizens as well as law enforcement agencies. The decision by the DHS will have no impact on Florida’s planned improvements. Before going to a Driver License office, read the full requirements and be prepared. I.  As identification, Florida residents who are U.S. Citizens must bring one of the following original documents as proof of identify: 1.  Certified U.S. Birth Certificate, (a hospital birth certificate is not acceptable). 2.  Valid U.S. Passport. 3.  Certificate of naturalization. 4.  Consular report of birth abroad.
