In New York, when it comes to assisted senior living housing units, especially those regulated by HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development), certain types of income are treated differently for eligibility and rent calculation purposes. According to HUD guidelines, some types of...View More

As a lawful permanent resident married to an American citizen, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if you have a qualifying disability and have worked enough to earn sufficient work credits, or if you have limited income and...View More
As a divorced spouse, you may be eligible to receive Social Security benefits based on your ex-husband's record if you meet certain criteria. To be eligible, you must have been married to your ex-husband for at least 10 years, be at least 62 years old, be unmarried (unless your later marriage...View More
I'm sorry your post remains open for a week. While some questions go unanswered on this forum, you could repost and add "Elder Law" and "Health Care Law" as additional categories. That could increase chances of a response. Good luck
Poverty is no consideration when custody of a child is involved, and the young father must support his child under threat of jail. The mother is free to work or not work. However, if the mother goes on welfare – or what we know today as welfare after the Clinton administration – the department...View More
Financial obligation. Is there a way to back out of a car loan I am the co-owner of without impacting the main loan holder or is there a way to get lower payments of even possible help with payments Thru any programs?
While filing bankruptcy will release you of the obligation under the car loan, the other borrower will not be relieved and the lender can recall the loan and reposses the vehicle if the other borrower is unable to pay on their own.
Your post covers a number of categories but it remains open - maybe because a specific question is not included. But it looks like something that an immigration attorney could have insight into. If that's the case, one option is to repost and include Immigration Law as a category; another is...View More
I'm sorry your question remains open for three weeks - especially on such an important matter. There are attorneys who deal with public assistance matters and appeals who could probably advise best, but until one comes across your question, another option at this point could be to reach out to...View More
Can any mass of people congregate in a public park, setup some speakers and listen to an orator speak about politics, for example? Is this protected by the right to peaceful assembly? I'm talking about non-pandemic times, btw. Thanks for any help provided.
This is something that a constitutional law scholar would know best. It sounds like you are touching upon the time, place, manner attributes of the First Amendment. It would be safest to contact agencies or offices within the City of New York to verify these guidelines - it's possible they...View More
I am interested to know if someone can apply for teacher certification for me in all 50 states. I have an Advanced Professional Certificate in Two Subject Areas, and an Administrator Credential. I have 15 years of teaching experience, could someone do this? If so could you give a rough time... View More
Why do you want to pay a lawyer to do something you could accomplish on your own? It doesn't require legal skills to apply for teacher certification. Given your credentials, you are clearly bright enough to deal with the process. But if you wish to have a lawyer handle it for you, you could...View More
It could depend on the context. If the organization alleged that such use adversely impacted its reputation or other interests, it could object to the use or bring legal action. There's no way to predict what an organization would do. One option is to consult with an attorney familiar with the...View More

Legally? No, although I think this is an issue ripe for appeal now. Many states are having legal problems with distinguishing industrial hemp buds from marijuana buds and it’s a likely issue to get into our appellate system soon, which will create controlling caselaw on the issue... we will see...View More
You won't get denied just because you don't have an attorney, but you're much more likely to be successful if you have one. That's because an attorney will know what records you need and will argue why you should be considered disabled. However, you will need to get an attorney...View More

Unfortunately--even if everything you said is 100% true--there is nothing anyone can do about it today. Why? Because of the extremely, long period of time that has elapsed between the time of the drug-related issues (late seventies) and now.
Under some circumstances, the answer is "yes" - but only with respect to child support, income taxes, criminal restitution, or Social Security overpayments. Give them a call and ask them about it - they'll at least be able to let you know to whom the debt is owed. There have been...View More
If this is in regard to benefits received from New York, and the New York City Human Resources Administration Department of Social Services is asserting a lien, it is possible their figure could be subject to negotiation.
