I am divorced, paying $500/wk in Alimony. I have a serious

I am divorced, paying $500/wk in Alimony. I have a serious medical problem, and my Dr wants me to retire. Through work I have disability insurance, and will receive about 60% of my weekly pay, which will become monthly. Am I going to be facing issues with the court for a modification of the alimony? I did not ask for this, but the alternative is to shorten my life drastically.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in Massachusetts, which is where the alimony was ordered. My ex lives in GAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet. Just beginning the process. Looking at starting retirement on 7/2 in order to get the alimony part resolved before so that I don't go into arrears.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's about it so far.

This is in reference to a disabled individual who has had to

This is in reference to a disabled individual who has had to go into a nursing home. Her husband has filed for a divorce now and her children from a previous marriage and now dealing with this. Not sure how he got her qualified for Medicaid but he did and now Medicaid is paying for nursing home care. She receives a long term disability payment monthly, which has been going to her and does not go to nursing home for care. She worked for the school system in Texas before her stroke she suffered and he tells family this disability she receives is thru a long term disability insurance she had with the schools. He is about to turn all of this over to her children, along with power of attorney. I was thinking if you receive a disability income, that would go to the nursing home for your care, then Medicaid would pay the difference? I know with SSDI, nursing homes typically get that then Medicaid pays the difference. Her kids are concerned about this because they don't want to be doing anything illegal especially when they are basically assuming this responsibility on her behalf. Apparently the husband has had control of the disability payment she receives monthly and uses it for whatever.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.Customer: How much does this cost in total?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Just asking , I don't have a problem with making the deposit but I just don't want to commit to something that is too costly for her children.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He has filed for a divorce from her and there is a court hearing on March 20th to finalize the divorce. This is in Texas. Their primary concern though is about the disability he has been having control of that he is about to turn over to them and if legally, that should have gone to the nursing home for her care.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of.

My boyfriend wants to claim our daughter on his taxes but I get disability and so does she. If he does this does this affect the disability and also if he claims her does he have to start caring her insurance. She is on Medicaid right now and we live in South Carolina .

I have a complex question: I work with a company who

I have a complex question: I work with a company who utilizes my services as an 'independent contractor'. A recent Worker's Compensation Commission audit of their insurance and employees for 2015-2016 had determined that they were required to cover me as an 'employee', and have required them to submit premiums for 2015-2016 for 'my' WCI coverage in the amount of $2,600. Of which, they have determined that they will subrogate those costs on to me by deducting that amount from monies owed me for services performed on their behalf. I am set-up as an LLC/ and I am exempt as a sole-proprietor in Maryland from requirement for WCI, and had filed that exemption form with Maryland when I was incorporated in 2012. It seems that this company, since they are not a sole-proprietor, IS required to provide WCI and since I (and other independent contractors) were ruled as 'employees', that company is required to provide WCI for myself/us.My questions are two-fold:1. Can they legally withhold those monies without my express permission and/or without providing due legal process?2. Maryland LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT Code Ann. § 9-1101 states:9-1101. Deduction from wage(a) Prohibited act. -- An employer may not deduct any part of the premium that the employer pays for workers' compensation insurance from the salary or wages of a covered employee.(b) Penalty. -- A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to a fine not exceeding $ 200....so if I am indeed, an 'employee'...would this not be a prohibited act?What would be the proper legal procedure/instrument to stop this company from return withheld funds/inhibit further withholding(s)?JA: Can you tell me what state the LLC is registered in?Customer: MarylandJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: meaning?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I've come to an unfortunate realization that due to my

I've come to an unfortunate realization that due to my medical condition I may not be able to continue working. I've been diagnosed by doctors and at this writing I'm home sick. I would like to know what it takes to be certified disabled by Medicare. I have through work had forms signed and filed by my doctors saying I am ADA approved to help protect my job(s). This is a hard pill for me to swallow as Im not a wimp but I see now something else must be done. What do you suggest? Thanks
