I am a year old single woman and disabled since 2004. I

I am a 69 year old single woman and disabled since 2004. I began receiving disability benefits from Social Security in 2007 (court ordered also retroactive benefits in a lump sum). Here is my question: I lived alone in New Hampshire until 2010. I was reaching the point where I was needing more and more outside help with lifestyle issues - I cannot drive anymore and need rides to medical appts, someone to grocery shop for me, etc. I received a phone call from a family member telling me that my former husband's second wife had passed away (we were divorced before my disabiling accident). I sent him a card; he called me long distance from his home in Colorado. We struck-up a new/old friendship. I told him about my failing health, he told me about his lonliness, and we came up with what has become a Godsend for both of us. I moved into his home in Colorado where I have my own bedroom/bathroom area at one end of the house, and his is at the other end. We meet in the middle for the kitchen! The part that is becoming our potential "undoing" is money. Each of us lives only on our individual Social Security Retirement checks. I have become a serious financial liability to him and I know it. Is there some provision in the Social Security system for extra money paid to someone who takes care of a disabled person living with them?JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?Customer: Only that my name is ***** ***** I have a lot dependent on your answer today.

My husband and I adopted tow children through cps. Later we were asked to consider opening our home for foster care. We agreed. After only 4 months we chose not to take any more children because of the constant intrusion to our home. Then I received a call from cps that they received a call regarding our adopted child. This is crazy. We are both professionals and have raised 4 successful adult childrenWhat rights do we have to refuse their Co tact with our son?

I want a straight forward answer whether it's favorable for

I want a straight forward answer whether it's favorable for me or not. My ex tried to lower child support a year ago and in mediation we agreed to lower it a little but not by much because the actual calculations were way too significant of a difference. My lawyer was able to convince him that he would spend way more going to court vs the difference in lowering payment so he agreed to deviate again.Now, he is moving closer and wants to file to lower support again. He says this time he will take it to court instead of settling in mediation again bc he felt pressured last time. So, my question is, if my ex won't agree to a deviated amount of support in mediation will a judge typically cut a child support payment in half? My lawyer told my ex that judges won't let the custodial parent go from getting $800 a month to $400 a month no matter what. Is this true? My ex has never missed a child support payment and appears to be living very well from what I can tell; however, if we were to base child support off the IN child support calculator he would only be obligated to may me less than $100 a week which is significantly lower. I know he can affird child support as it is now but the calculator shows he is significantly overpaying due to his previously agreed deviation. I just want to be able to prepare myself for what will most likely happen.
