Legal assistance can be vital in a military divorce

Missourians who are either in or have served in the United States military are not immune to the family problems that can lead to a divorce. In fact, being a military family carries with it certain responsibilities and pressures that might make it more difficult for some couples to remain together. No matter the situation, whether it is a couple with both spouses in the military, active duty service members or military retirees, it is essential to have legal assistance if there is a dispute and a pending divorce.

Clarifying confusion over Social Security disability benefits

In today's political environment, many Missourians could be confused about certain aspects regarding Social Security and the benefits that people are entitled to. One is Social Security Disability Insurance.

It can be a confusing process. One is how "extreme limitation" is defined in the context of what the person can do.

Budget proposal could affect Social Security Disability benefits

Missourians who have a medical issue can often receive Social Security disability benefits due to their condition. There are several programs that provide these benefits, including Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income. Those who are seeking or are already getting these benefits should pay attention to current events to know how certain legal changes might affect them. One is the budget proposed by President Donald J. Trump and how it would reduce SSDI.
