I live in Texas.I've been divorced for 12 plus years.My

Hi.I live in Texas.I've been divorced for 12 plus years.My exhusband and his wife will not let me use my childrens dental insurance card,even though Cigna sent it to our address.The wife texted me she will press charges if i attempt to use the insurance when i take my children to the dentist. The wife wants me to pay cash so they then turn it into their insurance company and file a claim as though they paid cash.?Yet it takes them over a year to reimburse me (our decree states to repay within 30 days but they do not do this).Hope this makes sense. Not sure if it's worth trying to use the insurance without their permission? What is your advice? I can't afford to go back to my attorney to get any decree rectified and my x knows this.He is in an entirely different earning bracket and he can afford to allow me to use their insurance for their visits but as he told me that if I was starving and they were the last people on earth ,he and his wife wouldn't even Sh__ in my own mouth.Those are his exact words.Just so you know what kind of filthy mean spirited person i have to deal with.Our decree states he must carry health insurance and dental we each pay 50/50 .He refused to let decree state he must carry dental insurance.He has never followed the decree (he acts as though he is above it),He has never been an actual father physically or emotionally for our children.Its his loss,they are wonderful human beings and as my son goes off to college in two weeks I just want to know if i can get their dental work completed before he leaves under his insurance.The only reason i learned they has dental insurance is that Cigna sent the card to my address.Cigna suggested i talk to an attorney.Then Cigna mentioned to make sure i went to a provider on their accepted list.Now i sort of felt the rep was saying just go to one of oy=ur dentists and all will be fine ,but i know how insane and dramatic his wife is and she has nothing better to do in her day than to make our lives miserable,nevermind that her 3 children from a different man all got braces which my childrens father paid for! Its not right.What should i do? I need him to agree we can use the insurance.I would like to keep it nice because we need him to agree to pay the orthodontist his 50 pervent directly as i do not want to be financially out both 50 percent portions of my son and daughters braces.Please help.Thank you kindlly.Toni Harless

When a person is released to a mental state hospital after being arrested because of an order of incompetency and a status check is posted for 6 months from the date, does that mean they will go back to jail to stand trial? Would this apply even if they have had a mental condition for 20 years?

I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am

Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick

Do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation

do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation for the disabled" according to the ADA?Is PTSD, anxiety, panic in a jail setting reason to be arrested? Shouldn't police and prison/jail guards need to explain why they are asking a person to do something, esp. it the person asks them. Some of us just want to understand why we are being infringed upon? Are police allowed to leave bruises on persons at an arrest and to always charge "disturbing the peace" and "resisting arrest". It seems to me that any person that I know who has been arrested has always also had these two charges added on to whatever the "real" charge is.Does the person being arrested need to understand why they are being arrested like if a person has "Asperger's syndrome or mild ASD or a right hemispheric disorder" need to understand the reason for arrest? Do rights (Miranda) always need to be given to a person arrested?

I have to break a lease due to my mother's health. The

I have to break a lease due to my mother's health. The lease's point about getting out of the lease is very vague. I thought I had an understanding but now I'm not so sure.She's been living in a retirement community that has personalized assistance if a resident needs it. My mom has used those services but she now is no longer able to manage her diabetes, checking her blood sugar levels and giving herself her insulin. This is an issue that I was told she would have to go to a nursing home if she couldn't manage giving herself her insulin shots. Of course those comments were verbal and not in writing.She also has diastolic dysfunction which some call congestive heart failure. The fluid builds up in her legs and she has to have compression stockings which they can help with but, she needs additional compression which is provided by velcro wraps. The assistance people told me that they could not do these wraps because they were considered "medical". They said it was the law.So, I need someone to look over or talk to me about the lease and help me as I need to write this letter soon, by June 1st.
