HuffPost published  a very interesting article that’s worth profiling; it’s titled: “Why You Need to Strive for Indifference Toward Your Ex.” While I agree that “indifference” towards one’s ex may help soothe their transition from being married to being a divorcee, make no mistake: the polar opposite of Love is Hate.  Indifference occupies the space in between these two emotions.  And, according to the article “indifference” suffices in helping one make such a transition. On the other hand FORGIVENESS  is key, because it inoculates one from Hate; FORGIVENESS  allows one to maintain love in their heart; it heals the emotional wounds resulting their newly deceased marriage/relationship; but most importantly, FORGIVENESS steadily fuels one progress forward–i.e., away from their past and towards something new.


How does the Courts Define”the Best Interest of a Child?” Here’s a Clear Example

I read an interesting article on HuffPost today. It’s titled: Bride’s Dad Stops Wedding So Stepdad can Walk Down the Aisle Too. A dad invites his daughter’s stepdad–i.e., his ex-wife’s husband who also helped raise his daughter–to participate in walking her down the aisle. Even though there was acrimony between the men, they learned to co-parent. I wonder how much money they saved in attorney’s fees?

The Process: Appealing Your Denied SSI/SSDI Claim

A synopsis of appealing a denied claim for social security income (SSI) and/or social security disability income (SSDI) by the Social Security administration.

Can I Use a Lawyer to Help Me apply for SSI/SSDI benefits?

Applying for Social Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) can be complex, time consuming and overwhelming. That is why anyone who is entitled to receive benefits should consult a skilled professional to help them navigate the process. There is no reason to engage this process alone. The law allows you to have a qualified representative to assist you through this process.


Can I Appeal the Denial of My Claim for Benefits?

If you are one of a small group of claimants who are approved at the initial stage, congratulations! Most of initial benefits claims are denied, so you should feel special. For the rest of you whose initial claim is denied, all is not lost. You may appeal the administration’s decision denying your claim. Yes, denied claims may be appealed. As a general matter, after your initial claim is denied there are four levels of appeal; the first level is called “Reconsideration” where your case will be reviewed. If the administration denies your reconsideration, you can ask for a hearing before an administrative law judge; and if the judge affirms the denial of your claim, you can then ask for a review of your case before the Appeal Council; and if necessary Federal Court will review your case if the decision to deny your claim is affirmed by the Appeal Council. Requests for an appeal must be done within 60 days from the date you receive your denial letter. It is assumed that the denial letter will reach you within five days after the date on the letter. So, be mindful that you can lose your entitlement to benefits if you miss filing deadlines.
