My fiancé has an unemployment adjudication hearing this week. Back in October I had a complicated pregnancy and had given birth to our child prematurely. My partners job required him to go into all sorts of buildings, apartments, hospitals etc. With me recovering from an emergency csection and our infant in the NICU he believed he was jeopardizing the health of his family and was no longer able to perform the duties the job required. It was a mutual decision with his employer that it just wasn’t working. On his unemployment adjudication form it states Termination. In your experience is this unique situation something he could argue to keep collecting until he finds other work?

I have taken steps to become my great-niece's guardian. We did zoom court on Wednesday in Pawtucket probate court all the paperwork was filed. However, Judge is requesting a signed release from her mother which I did not think was necessary since her adopted father was willing to sign off on his parental rights and is not contesting the process. Even though her mother entered a nursing home at the age of 32 years and will be in a care facility for the rest of her life the Judge is requested her signature. I initially filed the paperwork "pro say", I am not at a point where I am not sure what the next step will be, do I have her sign a Minor Guardianship Form with her name, and have it witnessed and notarized? Do I have her sign an affidavit? I am not sure what to do.

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
