Displaced fathers are overwrought at the loss of contact with their children

Displaced fathers are overwrought at the loss of contact with their children | South Florida Family Law Reform | Scoop.it
Family Courts remain firmly stuck in the past; the overwhelming majority of child custody still goes either solely or primarily to mothers. What that means is that children and fathers suffer as never before when parents divorce. In the past, dad may have seen his role as exclusively the breadwinner and therefore taken little part in day-to-day childrearing.

The Prevention Coalition

The Prevention Coalition | South Florida Family Law Reform | Scoop.it
With the legalization of marijuana in many U.S. states and the overall prevalence of drug use in many communities, it can seem as if substance abuse is becoming a national norm. At the Prevention Coalition, we’re fighting that sense of complacency. We believe that every child and young adult deserves the opportunity to make a fully educated decision on drug use. The Prevention Coalition was founded by a group of retired school counselors and therapists to provide an accessible drug use and abuse prevention resource for parents, teachers, counselors and other concerned adults. We’ve seen the effects of drug use and abuse in teens first-hand, and we understand the difficulties young people and their loved ones faces when drug use becomes an issue. We believe that education is the first step toward guiding young people to make informed decisions, and we’ve compiled trustworthy resources from across the Internet to provide an accessible and comprehensive guide to that information. We’ve worked with teens for whom “harmless” experimenting turned into an addiction with serious social, health, and sometimes legal consequences. We believe that some of these teens may have reconsidered drug use had they fully understood the effects of various chemicals on the brain. We know that young adults have the agency to make their own decisions concerning drug use, and we passionately believe that all young people should be educated on the real facts of drug use and abuse before the opportunity to use ever arises. We work with a team of paid market research experts and have scoured the web for the best knowledge-bases of anti-drug education and organized them on the Prevention Coalition site to help parents, educators and other anti-drug allies find the best resources for themselves and the young people they care about. On our site, you’ll find: A list of commonly abused legal and illegal substances, their effects on the body and common signs of abuse Up-to-date and comprehensive statistics to give parents and educators an understanding of the big picture of teen drug use Tips on discussing drug use with teens Anti-drug lesson tips and lesson plan resources for educators Information on creating school-sponsored drug abuse prevention programs Information on creating drug-free community coalitions A section for teens and young adults, explaining the social and legal consequences of drug use and abuse

Do Social Security Auxiliary Benefits Count as Child Support?

Do Social Security disability auxiliary benefits count as child support? Can my benefits be garnished?

These resources are invaluable in a family's time of need.
Childrens Rights Floridas insight:
Do Social Security disability auxiliary benefits count as child support? Can my benefits be garnished? Disability benefits through the Social Security administration often provide additional support for the family members or dependents of people with disabilities. These resources are invaluable in a family's time of need. These dependent or auxiliary benefits, in combination with the monthly payments you receive from disability, allow you and your family to cover everyday needs and bigger expenditures when disability prevents you from working and earning a gainful living. If you have a child and owe child support, you may be wondering if you will need to use your disability benefits to cover these expenses. Social Security disability is a federal program, and can include Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and auxiliary benefits. In some states though, disability benefits paid through the SSI program are coordinated between federal and state agencies, giving state level authority for the qualification and administration of SSI. Child support, on the other hand, is ordered by a state level court and Child Services (also a state agency), monitors and enforces child support payments. In other words, Child support rules and regulations vary by state. In some states, auxiliary benefits may affect child support. In others, these benefits are excluded when calculating the gross income of both parents and would therefore have no affect on child support orders. Even when auxiliary benefits are excluded however, Child Services or the judge that orders child support, will likely review information about disability and auxiliary benefits. This review may include benefits each parent receives as well as auxiliary benefits paid directly to the child due to one or both parents being disability recipients. How Auxiliary Benefits Affects Child Support and Vice Versa With income-based benefits, like SSI, most states exclude these from child support considerations. With SSDI benefits however, some states do consider these and any auxiliary benefits associated with them. If not excluded by state law, then any amount of auxiliary benefits a parent or child receives can reduce the amount of the non-custodial parent’s monthly child support obligation. In other words, auxiliary benefits cover some of a child’s ongoing needs. Child support necessary to meet a child’s needs may be lessened as a result. This in turn may mean that the monthly child support the non-custodial parent is required to pay may be reduced as well. How Your Own Disability Affects Child Support and Vise Versa If you’ve been ordered to pay child support and become disabled yourself, then you’ll begin receiving SSI and/or SSDI rather than or in addition to auxiliary benefits. If you get SSDI and/or SSI, your child support obligations do not end. In most jurisdictions, SSI is excluded from child support calculations, but income from SSDI is not. So, if you receive SSDI benefits, these can be garnished for any child support arrears you owe or current child support payments. Understanding Disability and Child Support in Your Home Jurisdiction Disability benefits may be less than your prior income from employment. In cases like this, it can be difficult to meet your own needs and also keep up with child support. If necessary, you can petition the court for child support adjustments, based on your new financial situation. A Social Security disability attorney or advocate can help you understand the rules and regulations governing auxiliary benefits, disability through SSI and/or SSDI, and child support in your local area.

According to the FBI “Public corruption poses a fundamental threat to our national security and way of life. It impacts everything from how well our borders are secured and our neighborhoods protected…to verdicts handed down in courts…to the quality of our roads, schools, and other government services. And it takes a significant toll on our pocketbooks, wasting billions in tax dollars every year. The FBI is singularly situated to combat this corruption, with the skills and capabilities to run complex undercover operations and surveillance.”
