Military Retirement And Spousal Support?
I Am A Retired Military Member Who Had Divorced 10 Years Ago. My Ex-Wife Receives Portions Of My Retirement. I Ubderstand That If She Were To Perish Or Re-Marry Her Benefits Would End. What About Co-Habitation? She Has Been Living With A Partner Of The Opposite Sex For 7 Years. Does This Disqualify Her For The Portion Of The Retireent Pay She Receives?
No. Cohabitation only constitutes a change in circumstances if it is coupled with economic consequences. This means that the spouse must receive a real economic benefit by cohabiting/living with another person. If the dependent former spouse if being fully supported by her companion, then the ex-husband may qualify for a reduction or termination of his alimony obligations. In order for cohabitation to be a sufficient ground to reduce/terminate alimony then there must be a permanent relationship. The cohabitation must be of a long-term or permanent nature. The ex-wife and her boyfriend must share living expenses. Staying overnight by either party a few times a month is generally not enough. This is a very touchy subject, because many times ex-wives will intentionally not remarry in order to keep getting support payments, even though they have found a new life-long companion. An application to reduce or terminate alimony based on the grounds of cohabitation is a two-part process. First, the applicant must prove to the court that there is a “change of circumstances” to justify discovery and a plenary hearing. Second, he must prove that there are grounds to justify a reduction. It is important to emphasize that alimony will only be reduced if the applicant can prove that his former wife receives a real economic advantage by living with her companion. The applicant must prove that his former wife receives real support from her new companion. In many cases, it is impossible for an applicant to prove that his former wife receives support from her new companion
Good Subscriber Insurance Attorney (Not Workers Comp, But Like It).?
It'S Workers Comp Basically But My Company Is Self-Insured & Pays Out Of Pocket For Claims. Anyone Know A Reasonable Fee For A &Quot;Subscriber Attorney&Quot; For A Personal Injury That Occured On The Job? Found One But They Want 40% Of The Settlement Even If They Do Nothing Which Is Bs.
Generally speaking, a worker's comp claim has specific legal limits. Worker's comp is not the same as being self insured for business liability. Ordinarily, once a worker's comp claim in established, it precludes any lawsuit against the liability insurance for the same occurrence.
A personal injury attorney normally does not charge any fee for any conference or their work in advance, but typically charge 30% if they can win a settlement without going to court, or 40% if they have to argue the case in court. This is very standard.
You can certainly represent yourself, and most such cases end up with very low settlements because you do not know all that is legally possible to force a higher settlement. The question remains... are you willing to represent yourself and perhaps win a $5,000 settlement, or would you rather have an attorney represent you and win a $100,000 settlement? Sure, he will take $40,000 of that, but he will also get you $60,000 net compared to the $5,000 you get on your own.
Those are random figures off the top of my head just to make a point. Each case has to stand on its own merits. There is no "average" or "set" settlement figure available.
The thing is, you can get professional representation to make sure your best interests are protected, and there is no fee at all unless he/or she wins your case for you.
Since this is a Worker's Comp claim, it is certainly reasonable that the attorney is asking for the 40% amount. He is already precluded from seeking the higher settlement amount that could be obtained in a personal injury lawsuit.
There is a very short Statute of Limitations on such cases. You would be well advised to seek professional guidance rather than attempting to represent yourself. Yes, 40% seems high, but it will make a significant difference in your net gain.
Which Profession Is More Important To Society: Lawyers Or Engineers?
I'M Going To Have To Go With Lawyers, Since We Live In A Capitalist Society And They Earn Considerably Much More Than Engineers, And Thus Are In Demand By Society And Needed More Than Engineers Are.
Lawyers, it shouldn't even be a question. Most people can live without technology, most would prefer not live in anarchy or dictatorships. Engineers are really just over-glorified blue collar workers, and we are quite easily replaced and very expendable. Management takes advantage of this fact. Either way, if engineering were to disappear, it would just prop up again at a later time with scientists occupying this new niche.
Explain Your Reasons Why Sacrificing Public Litigation Might Be Good For Business.?
The Ability To Learn Law And Learn From The Mistakes Of Others Is Somewhat Lost When Public Litigation Is Replaced By Alternative Dispute Resolution. Choose One Of The Following Resolution Methods, And Defend Why It Is A Good Option For Business: Arbitration, Negotiation, Mediation, Minitrial, Or Summary Jury Trail. Explain Your Reasons Why Sacrificing Public Litigation Might Be Good For Business.
Public litigation, properly applied, is a good thing.
Public litigation, abused, is merely legalized theft.
The reasoning is simply that humans find it easier to steal resources from others than to earn them themselves.
Where Do You Stand On Intellectual Property Laws?
When It Comes To Intellectual Property, I'M Practically A Marxist. Inventors Of The World Unite!
People use intellectual property laws to extort money. If I create something and try to sell it, I find that there are people who have patents with no intention of creating a product. They just wait for someone to create something similar to the patent, and then use the patent to extort money.
Service Dog Laws In Colorado?
So, I'M Wanting To Move Out On My Own In The Next Couple Of Years. And A Friend Has A Service Dog For Her Mental Condition. I Just Read Some Of The Laws Here In Colorado For Such, And Not Finding Anywhere If I Will Possibly Get Sued Or In Trouble For Denying My Friend'S Service Dog Access Into My Place Of Residence. Is That Allowed? Will I Get In Trouble If The Law Finds Out I'Ve Been Denying Her Dog Into My Home?
It States In A Couple Of Places For An Individual With The Service Animal, Going Into A Place Of Rent. But Not For The Individual On The Other End Of The Debate. Basically, My Question Is: It Against The Law For Somebody In A Residential Home To Deny A Service Dog Access Into Said Home?
This isn't state law but federal law. Note toward bottom a owner of a private home can deny service dog on their property. Not sure why you would deny a friend but you are within your legal rights to deny at home. Add - makes more sense since you have allergies & one of the reasons why it is up to the individual owner to chose whether or not to allow a service dog. Just ask friend not to bring dog over due to your allergies.
Though service animals of all kinds can legally accompany their disabled handler almost anywhere the handler goes, they can be excluded from areas where their presence would constitute either a fundamental alteration of goods and services available for all or a direct threat to safety. Examples where a service animal might be excluded include:
-Sterile rooms, such as operating rooms, some areas of emergency rooms/departments, some ICU rooms, some ambulances, some delivery rooms (on a case-by-case basis)
-Clean rooms where microchips are manufactured
-Places where food is prepared (though they cannot generally be excluded from dining areas where food is present) (by order of most health departments)
-Open air zoological exhibits, such as open air aviaries (at the zoo's discretion)
-Churches (at the church's discretion)
-Native American Tribal Council Chambers (at the council's discretion)
-Federal Courts (at the judge's discretion)
-Jail or prison cells (at the discretion of the facility director)
-Private clubs (at the club's discretion)
-Private homes (at the home owner's discretion)
So far, this discussion is centered entirely on laws of access in the United States of America. Other countries will have their own laws in place regarding the access rights of individuals accompanied by a service animal.
