Your Rights When You Divorce

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Recent studies have shown that the divorce rate is almost at the 50% mark for couple being married in the past 5 years. What is the cause of that? Are people being too reckless with their commitments? Do people really think that the love they feel will see them through anything?

The biggest problem leading to divorce is a lack of communication between the partners. It really is a partnership, where each needs to know what the other is doing and thinking on a regular basis, as in daily. You need to make sure that you are both marching to the same drummer with the same goals in sight, both short term goals as well as long term goals, and without that communication, divorce is almost inevitable.

Is this a difficult thing? It should not be, but in today’s world where most households have both spouses working, it can prove to be difficult. When both spouses arrive at home after a long hard day at work, both are tired, perhaps irritable, neither feels like fixing dinner, and communication can often be the last thing on either one’s mind. Yet if that communications does not happen, it is inevitably that the two of you will take different paths, start creating separate goals, and pretty soon you find that divorce is the only viable answer, since your paths have parted so widely that there is little chance your paths will ever rejoin.

Divorce can be a comparatively simple procedure or it can be long and drawn out. It is in your best interests to get a good divorce lawyer. Really? Yes really. If the communications between you and your spouse have broken down to put you on separate paths, you cannot be sure of what your spouse will require or demand in the divorce process. Make sure you do not get hosed in that process, and without a good divorce attorney, that can easily happen before you are even aware of it.

Things can get messy if children are involved or there is a fair amount of capital holdings that were acquired since the wedding day. But even these items can be negotiated and worked out with good divorce attorneys, plus the desire to “just get it over with peacefully” on the part of both spouses.

If divorce is really the best or only option available to you, plan it with the same attention to detail that you used when you planned your wedding. Preparation and a thorough knowledge of what is involved and what can be negotiated is paramount in making sure that you don’t walk away with absolutely nothing. Almost anything is negotiable as far as “who gets what”, but be very clear on what are your rights, what are the rights of your spouse, and how to effectively manage the division of assets, including cash, stocks, and bonds.

Secure Your Benefits by Finding a Good Compensation Lawyer

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Choosing a compensation lawyer is a delicate ordeal because, especially in this case, the attorney/client relationship is extremely important. Such accidents often occur due to the negligence or carelessness of the employers. That is why they are supposed to compensate for the losses caused by paying you a certain amount of money as compensation. While such payments are helpful in paying off the medical bills, your financial condition will also remain stable throughout your recovery period. Do you know what benefits you are entitled to get? A worker’s compensation lawyer can help you to get compensated for –

1. Temporary but total disabilities, which will hold you back from resuming normal activities

2. Your medical bills

3. Partial but, permanent impairments

You should know that state laws vary and also there are occasional changes in the clauses. Only a trained and experienced lawyer is up-to-date with the laws of the state and the conditions required for claiming compensation. Moreover, an attorney will rightly be able to examine the extent of injuries you have suffered and file for compensation accordingly.

Did you know that mental traumas caused by an accident or injuries are also taken into account for such compensations? However, it is tough to prove mental setbacks and traumas at the court of law. Leave the matter in the hands of experienced and specialized worker’s compensation lawyer. S/he is well versed with the tricks and techniques of fetching the right amount of compensation.

There’s another thing that you should know – what amount you are supposed to get? You must know that there are no lower and upper limits in particular. There are a few things on which the amount of benefits depend upon –

1. Extent of injuries caused; whether it is a permanent or temporary disability

2. Recovery time

3. Your financial condition

4. Lost wages and damaged property

5. Whether it is a mental or physical trauma

6. The cost of medication and the amount of medical bills you have accumulated in your name

Factors for determining the amount of compensation vary from person to person. It is better to ask an experienced worker’s compensation lawyer on the factors applicable in your case. There’s another thing that should bring into consideration while filing such a case – the capabilities and experience of the lawyer. If the lawyer is inexperienced, there are chances that you neither will win the case nor will be able to get the right compensation.
