  • 5 Issues To Understand About Sibling Custody

    There are a few circumstances when a sibling may want to seek custody of their minor brother or sister. For example, if their parents have died or are neglectful, a sibling may want to provide care for their younger sibling as opposed to allowing them to enter the foster care system. However, getting custody of a younger sibling can often be difficult. Often, siblings are not much older than 18 when they apply for custody, putting them close in age to the child in question and making it difficult for them to care for themselves and the child.

  • On The Record Review: Why Should You Request It Instead Of An Appeal Hearing?

    If the Social Security Administration, or SSA, denies your application for disability benefits, you may decide to request a hearing to appeal the decision. When you send in your appeal request, you can also ask for an on the record, or OTR, review with a judge instead of waiting for a hearing date. An on the record request may allow you to speak to a judge without an audience of witnesses, court attendees and other people that may make you feel uncomfortable.

  • Lawful Ways To Supplement Income While On Social Security Disability

    One thing many people who apply for or are receiving Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits struggle with is earning income without affecting their eligibility for SSDI. If you earn over $1,130 for disabled people and $1,820 for blind recipients per month, your application may be denied if you applied for benefits, and the amount you receive may be reduced if you already receive payments from the agency. However, you still have to pay for living expenses while you are waiting to be approved and/or the amount you receive may not be enough to sustain you.

    Exploring Civil Case Proceedings

    Hello and welcome, I'm Winfred Paulo. I have a passion for civil court cases of all kinds. Some time back, I ended up in the thick of a civil case after a lengthy dispute with my neighbor. The dispute went on for years and ended badly with an incident that landed us both in court. We had to prove our side of the case in an effort to obtain a positive outcome and recoup our losses. Unfortunately, I lost the case due to a lack of evidence. Since then, I've maintain a strong interest in civil cases and their proceedings. I will share information about civil cases on this site to help others understand these proceedings better. I may talk about legal terms, and expected outcomes for each case type. I hope you visit often to learn more. Thanks for stopping by my website.
