A Guide to an Amicable Divorce
When I got divorced, it went off without a hitch. When my friends heard how easy it was, they were shocked. None of the people they knew had experienced the same easy separation I had. It was not problems with their spouses that was the issue. It was the attorneys. After talking to a few more people and my divorce attorney, I created this blog. I want to help others who are going through the divorce process understand their options. I also want people to realize that there are good attorneys who are committed to getting what is best for their clients.
A workers' compensation claim can be the only option that you have for collecting compensation and receiving treatment for injuries that you suffer while working.

It stands to reason that the divorce process can be a confusing and stressful time, and at times, the amount of documents involved can be overwhelming. There is much you can do to tame the pile of paperwork, and knowing what to expect can help you better deal with the onslaught.

When you get hurt on the job, you are entitled to receive workers compensation benefits while you recover. If you are unable to work, but your employer is denying you benefits, it's time to work with an attorney that can help. Your employer must carry workers compensation insurance that covers all employees if they get injured while working. If you've gone to a medical evaluation and the provider sends you back to work right away, your employer can deny benefits.
