Ozaukee County Social Security Disability benefits attorney

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides two types of benefit programs to adults and children who may need financial assistance if they are disabled and unable to work. The SSA’s Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs both provide benefits, but the eligibility requirements for the two differ. In some situations, a child who is disabled may be eligible for benefits under the SSI program. However, there is a process that must be followed and documentation that must be completed before such benefits can be paid.

Eligibility Requirements  

In order for a child to be eligible to receive benefits from the SSI program, he or she must be under the age of 18 or 22 if he or she is enrolled in school, has a debilitating illness, disability, or condition, and falls within the income eligibility limits. Income limits for a child who is not blind state that the child cannot earn more than $1,260 a month in 2020, while a child who is blind cannot earn more than $2,110 a month.

Walworth County criminal defense attorney weapons violation

Guns can be dangerous and downright deadly weapons in the hands of some people. Even if you do not mean any harm, firearms are capable of serious injuries. Just recently, two separate firearm-related incidents resulted in non-life-threatening injuries to two Wisconsin residents. One woman accidentally shot herself in the leg after illegally carrying her firearm inside of a waterpark and attempting to store it in the trunk of her car. Police state she may be facing charges for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. The other incident occurred when a man tried to shoot a woodchuck that was on his property, but missed and ended up hitting a nearby 80-year-old golfer. That is why it is imperative that Wisconsin gun owners understand the laws pertaining to the possession and carry of firearms in order to avoid serious criminal charges. 

Wisconsin Gun Laws

There are reasons why laws are created and enacted -- there was a need for them. Laws concerning firearms are always highly debated for their constitutionality and Wisconsin is rather liberal when it comes to firearm ownership, compared to other states. However, Wisconsin does have some laws that specifically prohibit certain kinds of behavior from firearm owners:

Wisconsin divorce lawyerEnding a marriage is a big step for any couple, but this is especially true for couples who have been together for years. Even if you know that your marriage is not working and that neither of you is particularly happy, you may not be ready to officially divorce. Perhaps, for financial reasons, you cannot afford to divorce your spouse, but you know you cannot stay married either. Or maybe, unbeknownst to you, your spouse was actually married to another person when you got married to him or her. In situations such as these, it may be worth looking into other options for your marriage. Wisconsin recognizes three separate actions for dealing with legal marital issues: annulment, legal separation, and divorce. Although they are fairly similar, they do have separate requirements and outcomes. 

Annulment

If you have your marriage annulled, you are asking to have your marriage legally erased, as if it never happened. Annulment is a process that is only done in very limited circumstances. To get an annulment, you must meet at least one requirement outlined in Wisconsin’s laws. Grounds that qualify for annulment include:

  • You or your spouse lacked the capacity to consent to the marriage as a result of mental illness, intellectual disability, drug or alcohol use, or through the use of force or duress.

Racine County drunk driving accident injury attorney

There are very few crimes in the United States that could be accurately described as victimless. Most of the time, crimes that are committed will affect someone in some way, shape, or form. When it comes to a crime such as driving while under the influence of alcohol, also known in Wisconsin as OWI, there often are personal injury victims. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 10,500 alcohol-related traffic deaths across the country in 2018 and many more alcohol-related injury- or damage-only crashes. Accidents involving drunk drivers are often traumatic for the victim, which is why the victim has the right to pursue compensation from the offender.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

When you get into a car accident with another person, you have a right to pursue compensation for damages that you may have sustained. This is true in Wisconsin, especially if you were in a collision with an intoxicated driver. Wisconsin operates on a system of comparative negligence when it comes to motor vehicle crashes. This means all parties involved have the potential to be partially at fault for the accident. As long as you were not found to be more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you can pursue damages.

Ozaukee County gun charges defense attorney

In recent years, the number of gun-related injuries and accidents reported has increased significantly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were nearly 40,000 firearm-related deaths in 2018. In Wisconsin alone, there were nearly 600 firearm-related deaths, or approximately 10 deaths for every 100,000 Wisconsin citizens. Because of this, lawmakers across the country have introduced laws that would create extreme risk protection orders for individuals who are likely to commit a crime with their firearms. These laws, also known as “red flag” laws, have been thought to reduce gun crime, but many citizens have objected to these laws, citing an interference of their constitutional rights. It is important to understand what constitutes these violations if you or someone you know is facing any criminal charges.

What Are Red Flag Laws?

Red flag laws, also called extreme risk protection orders, is a legal tool that allows the government to remove firearms from the possession of people who have been found to be at a high risk of committing violence. Currently, 17 states and the District of Columbia have adopted some form of a red flag law. Like gun laws, red flag laws vary by state, but they all tend to have similar elements.
