I know a provision in the Will can request an SNT for the benefit of a disabled child. Are SNTs created and/or funded after the death of the grantor(s)? It’s my understanding that one should not leave assets directly to a disabled child, so they don’t lose their government benefits. If a trust... View More
a Special Needs Trust can be created either in a Will, in which case it is not funded until the death of the Grantor, or can be created during the lifetime of the Grantor, in which case it is usually funded (at least partially) when created, and additional funds can be added during the lifetime of...View More
Hi, my name is Anonymous and I wasn’t able to go to college, nor was I able to get a job due to the fact that I didn’t have a social security number. My father used fear to scare my mom into not giving me my birth certificate (keeping me out of the system or far away from hospitals). He passed... View More
You are leaving out important facts. What was the legal bar to your employment all that time? You could have picked up a SS number on line if you needed one. What opportunities did you miss? Were you a government employee?
Recently received a notice from local DR section indicating arrears and an enormous "lump sum" payment due in 30 days when none of my payments were ever late AND the other parent has paid nothing towards her supposed percentage of child support. Also, she dropped child's food stamp... View More

I will preface this by saying a mistake is different from a lie. Only because I am not sure what happened with your case. The Commonwealth has the legal right to amend the charges up to the time where the jury is sworn in a matter. Your remedy would be a continuance. The fact that this was...View More
He is being charged with distribution of a controlled substance because he sent a text message asking another student about money he had owed. The principal said the messages do not say what it is for but after he took my son in a room and questioned him that my son confessed and wrote a statement... View More
Contact the education law center in philadelphia.They have "cooperating attorneys" who know Pennsylvania Education law. Worth having legal counsel if they are looking for expulsion. In the meantime very important your son doesn't say anything on text, social media, in the hallway,...View More
I think this is a duplicate post. If you are already in Public Housing it is a bit odd that you would be denied, however it's possible it's a different Housing grant with a different set of requirements (for instance Section 8 is different than section 235, etc). Look at my response to...View More
You should be as he has "emancipated" you. Check with the welfare department for your county, but also check with Catholic Family Services if there is one in your area. If you need a place to stay check one of the womens shelters. Good luck!
I was terminated from my job on May 16, 2016 for failing to pass an alcohol test that I believe was unlawful and/or inaccurate. I have filed an appeal for denial of unemployment compensation benefits. The regional manager who appeared at my workplace on the 16th came to the office after a coworker... View More
Not if the test came back positive, unless you can explain how that was. The supervisor may, under your company rules, ask you to take an ETOH test. It's not a police "probable cause" requirement. Law basically says if you don't like work rules, barring a union contract you can...View More

Not a lawyer question. If you are on the do not call list tell them. Probably scam artists. Unfortunately local cops ususally say call the FBI, FBI says call local cops. I suggest you start with the do not call list.
I had a secure job at a local school district and gave it up for a job close to home as a daycare director. The business was new and struggling and I agreed to help build the business. I held up my end and brought in more business but quickly began to notice that the owner was cheap and had no... View More
You can file as you left because of a necessitous and compelling reason, namely that you were being asked to operate a business that would not be in compliance with the law. If they want to fight it then they are not thinking.
said employer changed their insurance provider, on 1/12/2016 I had to have knee surgery that left me unable to work at this time. Now this new insurance provider is denying my short term disability claim, they are labeling it as a preexisting condition because I saw a doctor for it on 12/08/2015. I... View More
Unless the knee is a work injury, this is not a workers' compensation question. If the knee is as a result of a work injury, it should not be submitted to short term disability. A workers' compensation claim should be filed.
I have recently lost my job due to a high risk pregnancy. Am I allowed to receive welfare benifits (SNAP/MA) if my ex parcially lives next door (with family) and NY?

If it's SSI yes. If it's not SSI (SSDI/Title II) then no. One is asset based; the other isnt.Should he wish Donald Trump could collect Old Age beneifits under Title II.
