Also, is this for me, the petitioner, or is this for the beneficiary? The instructions on the online form aren't very clear. I keep getting error messages saying, "You should provide evidence. If you do not provide evidence, your petition processing may be delayed."

What can I do? She apparently has a joint account with her partner that is hospitalized and will likely end up in a nursing home by his kids. We have no information about where anything goes as his family took that over.

If she speaks English and knows the words but you are helping her understand the meaning of something (rather than translate from English to her native language) then I don't think you need to list yourself as the interpreter. Best wishes!
Her spouse is deceased & my spouse is her only living child. Her mobile home has a fair market value of $25K but we will end up selling for $13K & have a willing buyer. The home is paid off & there are literally no other assets. She most likely has up to $10K owed through medicare... Read more »

Yes. If you are on bond for a crime and the Court orders you to have no contact with someone you are the one constrained, the other person is not.

I have been using the OGX products on my hair. I have a variety of them that I use. I have been wondering why my scalp is itchy and why I am losing hair.

A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. One option is to go online and research firms handling cases for the products you mention and contact them to determine the current disposition of whether they are still handling cases. Firms that handle...Read more »
I have type 2diabetes.. my blood sugar spiked and caused me to “lose consciousness” for a bit. I tested my glucose level and it was 245 which is high, as my level is 134 or lower.
