Workers’ compensation benefits and social security

Workers' compensation benefits are an important part of ensuring that an injured worker receives proper medical care and other help recovering from an on-the-job injury. However, it is important to understand how these benefits may create unanticipated complications for some workers, especially those who already receive social security benefits.

What is a closed adoption?

While closed adoptions are far less common in the United States than more traditional open adoptions, they are still a tool that some families choose to use in certain circumstances. Unlike open adoptions, in which adoptive parents and birth parents often get to know each other over time before the adoptions actually occurs and may remain in touch afterward, closed adoption seeks to keep the adoption details sealed as a whole.

Filing a workers' compensation claim after a workplace assault

Do you understand medical child support?

As a parent, you bear a number of ongoing responsibilities to your child, even when you and your child's other parent chose to raise the child separately. One of the most commonly overlooked responsibilities that parents often discover unpleasantly is medical child support. Unlike typical child support, medical child support is not regular or necessarily ongoing. Instead, it only arises when a child receives medical care that is not fully covered by an insurance policy.
