Custody Contempt

Understanding Custody Contempt

Custody cases can be contentious. Parents are pitted against each other trying to prove they are the “better” parent.  Many times, parents can reach agreements on their own as to how they want to share custody, and if they can’t reach an agreement, they must go to trial and a judge will enter an order determining the custody schedule. But, having an agreement or order does not necessarily mean your custody case is over. Parties still must follow the terms of these agreements and orders, because if they don’t, the other party can file for contempt. That makes sense. If one party doesn’t obey an order, he or she should be found in contempt. Easy, right?

What is an LLC?

What is an LLC?

A limited liability company (LLC) is a legal entity formed to operate a business. It provides many of the advantages of a traditional corporation, but it is easier to form and maintain.

Medicare Cards: What is New and Why

new medicare card

Medicare beneficiaries, did you get your new Medicare card yet?  I did.  I have been waiting for the new card since it was announced last year that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) would finally comply with the mandate to remove the beneficiary’s Social Security number from the Medicare card.  My new ID number is reminiscent of the temporary password issued when you cannot remember your current password, a string of numbers and letters that make no sense.  That is the point, however, since identity theft was so easy when so many entities had copies of my Medicare card. …
