2003 my sons psychiatrist suggested we obtain Legal
2003 my sons psychiatrist suggested we obtain Legal Guardianship of our son Neal who is now 34 years old. He had tried to commit suicide by cutting his own throat. He was taken to OU He is schizophrenic/bipolar. He self medicates with drugs and alcohol. When my husband Neal's father died in 2011 I was able to purchase my son an acre of land and a mobile home in Blanchard, OK. He has destroyed this home and contents multiple times. I have spent all of my profit sharing repairing and replacing. I will be 60 this month. I can no longer be responsible for him. He is on social security and DIC VA benefits. He has Medicare and ChampVa insurance. He has been EOD'D multiple times even committed twice by Crisis Center mental health judge. My issue is, I no longer wish to be his payee. I wish to dissolve my legal guardianship. He is dangerous and tries to destroy my house. His home is not livable, it needs to be condemned. I have talked to DHS and APS. THIS IS USELESS. They just say leave him there they have no place to put him. He is violent. The last time of many McClain County sheriff took him to 3 different hospitals. (OF COURSE NO BEDS). I believe this is called skirting? I saw the state of Virginia is doing something about this (fining) I think, but it seems Medicare is not what a person needs to get any type of help. I have been told to request he be put back in Medicaid. He draws to much money I thought. He receives SS Disability on himself and his father was disabled when he died. My son's land is in his name. Although I have been told he cannot sell it without my permission being his legal guardian. A year ago someone tries to buy his land for 58.00. He wanted his deed. I bought the home and land with the insurance money when my husband died. I have to find a way to protect his land. But in order to protect my life. I need to dissolve legal guardianship and possibly get a VPO. He is getting more and more violent. He grabs my wheel and I am afraid of him. Jail is just a place they put mentally ill people where they do not administer his injection of haldol and do not give meds by mouth. There just allowed to be almost beaten to death and then dropped on I40. His face and lips were so swollen he could not talk. Or the other county just releases them to the streets of Oklahoma City to wander after not being on they're meds. And then my schizophrenic son ends up on a Friday night in front of Bass Pro shops and finds a way to call me and let me know he was released. Of course he frightens me and I am afraid to pick him up. What if he had hurt someone? But it is time for me to give up. I have tried everything I can think of. A few months ago when McClain county sheriff EOD'd him he asked the officer to shoot him four times. He comes to my house beats on my doors demanding money for drugs and alcohol. I have even gotten on his phone and called the numbers on it and sent these people pictures of what happens to the home of a schizophrenic on drugs and begged they stop selling him drugs. They go to Blanchard and pick him up and drop him off at my house to force me to get him drugs. I called the police and he will be arrested for trespassing if he comes to my house again. Even when he is a threat to me or himself it is very difficult to get him EOD'D in my city/county. Especially when in 5 hours an officer has to take him to 3 different hospitals to be told no beds. Oklahoma has the worst record in hell for the mentally ill in the entire nation. I don't have the money to move. Please help me I have drawn from my IRA to help me cover these expenses. Thank you, ***** ***** My guardian papers were issued in Canadian County, OK.

My 3rd health insurance is with CHAMPVA. ChampVA tell me
My 3rd health insurance is with CHAMPVA. ChampVA tell me that because of Federal Law CFR 17.272(b)(3) my health providers are required o accept ChampVa allowable as full payment. I am constantly being billed by my providers because they do not believe the law. I need a copy of the law to show my providers.

Im on Disability and was on Medicare Part D (Health Net Orange).
I'm on Disability and was on Medicare Part D (Health Net Orange). In the several years I was on Health Net Orange I fell into the doughnut hole and they were covering zero % of my prescription drug costs. I'm now on ChampVA Meds By Mail, thanks to my husband, a Vietnam era vet on 100% service-connected disability. We are both in our sixties. My question: Can I hire an attorney to help me recoup my doughnut hole losses?
My wife was in a nursing rehab from Oct 2011 to March 2012.
My wife was in a nursing rehab from Oct 2011 to March 2012. She did spend several days in the local hospital in the interim. She has used her Medicare in-patient days -single stay as well as all of her lifetime reserve days. She has been in the hospital/nursing rehab since July 2010 without a 60 day hiatus, which would reset the Medicare in-patient allowable. She also has ChampVA which acts as secondary normally, but after Medicare benefits show an exhaust for a visit, they serve as primary.The aforementioned Nursing rehab billed Medicare for Oct. 2011 to December 2011. However, they refuse to bill Medicare after January 1, 2012. They did bill ChampVA for January 1, 2012 to March 4, 2012 for the dates admitted, but of course ChampVA denied benefits as Medicare had not been billed. Now they have turned my wife into a collection attorney for non-payment. I explained that CFR 424.44 requires the provider to bill Medicare and that ChampUS/ChampVA CFR 42 589.25 is to be treated the same as Medicare. WHAT can I do to force them to remove the collection process and bill properly?
I was test driving a car. When I got out of the car the door
I was test driving a car. When I got out of the car the door hinge did not work properly. The door hit me in the right temple area. I ask the seller if she had a problem with the door. She denied any problem. I purchased the car. I went to the Lincoln dealership to ask them about the door. It was the same dealership the seller had gone to. She told the repairman that her husband has Alshiemer disease that He got in the car and forgot to close the door and backed into the fence which damaged the door, also the drivers side has been re-painted.
The seller was not truthful about the car. Also after the car door hit my head I've had excruiating headaches and swelling inside my head. I had to have a CT scan and MRI. The charges is about $3,200.00. I have Medicare and ChampVa which will not pay when there is a third party liability. Also I made the April and May payments. The seller filed a claim againt me for non-pmt. I have unopened envelopes with the payment encloses. Please advise
I'm a freelance videographer who was red by a production
I'm a freelance videographer who was hired by a production company for a project. I sent them an invoice for my work for $700. They sent me my invoice with with a comment that I had left early one day and gave me a "half-day wage" of $100 ($40 less than the day wage). The day wage was $140 to work from 10am-4pm. There was a day where I had to leave an hour early to pick up my dog so that the sitter could go to work. They also didn't have a contract for me to sign until after the work was done and said that they couldn't pay me until I signed it. Are they trying to rip me off? Thank you for your time! -Madeline Gibson
A former roommate cashed an old check which he had earlierView more legal questions
A former roommate cashed an old check which he had earlier claimed was lost. I remember the check was for my share of rent and I had paid him later. The amount was $1500.I have multiple phone texts from him saying that he will return the money but he hasn't now for a year. Now he is refusing to take my calls or return my money. I plan to sue him in small claims court. I gave him the check in April 2012 and he cashed it in July 2015. What evidence do I need in the small claims court?
