  • I have a 9 year old child and share custody with her monther from whom I am divorced. I am now applying for social security benefits and have learned that my child is eligible for benefits. Since I have my daughter almost 50% of the time and maintain a residence where she has a separate room, clothing and articles, would the benefit paid to the child go to the mother? I don't feel this is fair since I am responsible for her medical expenses, child support, etc. Can you please advise.
  • My mothers health has drastically changed and she only lives on social security, a very small disability bi-weekly stipend and has medicare. While my mother has been accepted for medicaid as a secondary insurance, she will have to contribute monthly of $406 so that she will be able to have full time home health care (vs only part time with medicare). This expense will make it impossible to help her pay her credit card debts off. My mother needs to contribute to medicaid but then won't have enough to pay off her debts. What are options as far as her credit cards? Should I close them (with her on the phone) and let them know that she is unable to pay so we'd need a settlement price? Or just walk away? I am unsure of her options as my original plan was to help her pay them off one by one.
  • I received an eviction notice stating people reported I am not picking up after my dog, but I always do. There is another person with the same dog as me, so it may be her. I asked for proof but they have none, just the person who reported it. What is my recourse?
