Workers Compensation: Your Safety Net

You put your heart and soul into your job, so it seems only fair that you should be protected from harm while you’re there. Most good employers do go out of their way to provide safety training and equipment to keep their workers safe and protected from any hazards. Federal agencies, like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also have standards in place for employers to follow to keep their workers safe. However, sometimes accidents happen anyway, and when they do, workers compensation is meant to be your safety net. Most of the time, if you follow your company’s procedures for filing a workers compensation claim, you’ll be paid with no trouble. However, I know from experience that it isn’t always that easy. I started this blog to help you learn what to do when your company or their insurance company denies your workers compensation claim.

3 Steps To A Simplified Divorce

It is a commonly known fact that more marriages end in divorce than stay together, and the simple fact of the matter is, sometimes, two people just don't work together. If you and your significant other are heading for a divorce and you know it, you are probably both dreading the complicated process of just separating your lives. If you want to make sure the divorce process is as seamless and easy as possible, there are a few things you can do to help. Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind before you file for divorce to make sure things go smoothly. 

Start separating your finances right now. 

Joint bank accounts, jointly owned property or businesses, joint debts–all of these are examples of things in your married life that will have to be dissolved before the divorce can be finalized. If you want to get a jump start on the divorce process, it is a good idea to start separating these financial components of your life now. Make the effort to have names pulled off of ownership deeds and titles, split up bank accounts, and contact creditors and let them know you need to split a joint account or pay it off if you can. 

Start talking about child custody. 

When you have children, your divorce will become a matter of family law and child custody will be involved. Therefore, before you head to your attorneys to start filing paperwork for the divorce, it is best to already have a custody plan in mind that you can agree on. Even though it can be difficult, if you can work out custody between the two of you before divorce gets started, you will see a dissolution of your marriage much more quickly. 

Go ahead and start living separately.

Some states even require you to be separated for a certain amount of time before you can file for a divorce, but this is a good idea on just about every level. For one, staying away from your soon-to-be ex will mean it will be less likely that you end up arguing and growing more and more bitter toward one another. Two, living separately will also usually mean that you have already divided your properties and taken along what is yours. 

Even though divorce can be an intimidating experience, with a little pre-planning on both of your parts, the while thing will be much more simple. Contact an attorney like Karen Robins Carnegie PLC for more information
