Seek Therapy

Even if you’ve already tried to suggest counseling or therapy to your spouse and been refused, before filing for divorce it could still be beneficial to have individual counseling. A qualified therapist or counselor can give you the emotional and mental tools to cope well during this period.

For starters, they can help you determine whether ending the marriage is your ultimate goal or whether you’d prefer to just work through existing issues. If you’re definitely going to file, they can give recommendations about how to interact with your spouse during this time. They may also assist you with underlying personal issues that could have contributed to the problems in the relationship. That way, you can start mentally preparing for the future and any future relationships.

Plan Finances

While a divorce decree may not have yet been granted to you, you should not wait and be surprised about how the divorce will affect your wallet. Whether seeking alimony or child support or thinking about paying those, you should begin considering how you’ll be able to maintain a similar lifestyle once the divorce is final.

Look Beyond Divorce

You may be apprehensive about the divorce and very worried about the entire process. What may help is to start planning for a happy future once things have been resolved. Plan for that overseas trip you never took with your spouse. Consider spending every weekend on the beach or start looking for jobs in a new city. By being excited for your future, you’ll better handle divorce proceedings.

With these suggestions, divorcing can be handled in a manner that allows you to keep your head up. It’s also advisable to do a consultation with a family attorney in Lake County IL to help you explore all options open to you.

The Importance of low-income couples support during the divorce process

Posted on Posted in law

Spousal support is typically awarded to the lower-earning spouse during a divorce proceeding. It is meant to help with living expenses. Since it is not available in all cases, you may want to speak with an alimony attorney Pasco County to see it you are eligible.

Why Alimony is Awarded

The reason you may receive alimony is if your income is lower than your soon-to-be ex-spouse. It could be that you made many sacrifices in your own career so your spouse could build theirs. Knowing that you did it to benefit the entire family made it worth the sacrifice. However, you did not factor in getting divorced.

Being awarded alimony can prevent you from facing unfair economic benefits once your higher-earning spouse leaves the marriage. A judge may decide that you can receive alimony while you finish school or develop job skills that enables you to support yourself.

What a Family Court Judge Considers

There are several factors taken into consideration to determine whether you are awarded alimony based on state laws. A family court judge may consider how long you were married, especially if you were married for a long time.

The judge may look at your and your spouse’s health. Age is another factor, especially if there are health concerns.

You may also receive it so you can maintain the same standard of living you had during the marriage. The judge considers whether it is possible for you to maintain this standard without receiving financial support from your ex-spouse.

Getting Help Before the Final Decree

Although it is not required, the judge could order your spouse to begin making alimony payments during the divorce process. Payments may continue temporary or permanently based on your circumstances.

Once you have a final divorce decree, changes to alimony are made only if your circumstances or your spouse’s circumstances change. Therefore, it is in your best interest to make sure discussion of payments starts at the beginning. You usually cannot get a new alimony agreement once your divorce is final if no agreement ever existed.

An attorney can help you through the process and explain how this can work in your favor.…

The Benefits of Estate Planning in Vancouver

Posted on Posted in law

 

There are certain subjects that can be challenging for people to talk about or to think about. Top among the topics that people would consider to be taboo are money and death. This is one of the reasons why people find it difficult to discuss estate planning. People do not want to talk with anyone about the amount of money they have, and they may find it a challenge to think about a time when the things that they currently own will be passed on to someone else.

Failing to discuss personal finance with an estate attorney Vancouver WA, does not change the fact that circumstances which require your estate to be distributed among your heirs or family members will eventually arise. The only thing that happens when people do not discuss their financial situation and they do not prepare their estate is that when the inevitable does happen, their family members are left struggling. Their family members are left wondering how to distribute the estate.

In certain instances, the government may actually step in and serve as an arbitrary party. Of course, the government does not do this work free of charge, and the end result could be that children, a spouse, and other family members lose a portion of the estate they otherwise would have received because their now deceased family member did not take the time to do the proper planning when they were alive.

When people take the time to plan how their estate will be administered, if they become seriously ill or in the unfortunate event of their death, they are making positive decisions that are going to have a positive impact on the long-term well-being of their family.

It’s understandable that people feel uncomfortable talking about money. It’s understandable that people do not want to think about a time when they may not be around. However, it is a sign of love and a sign of care on the part of the individual with the estate to confront these things that might make them feel uncomfortable temporarily, thinking about the long-term benefit for the loved ones they leave behind.…

EMERGENCE OF IT & ITES- EFFECTS ON THE LABOUR LAWS

EMERGENCE OF IT & ITES- EFFECTS ON THE LABOUR LAWS

           

   India is a country having diverse religions and cultures. It becomes necessary to harmonize industrial relations in the country with respect to such diversity. India’s trade performance during 2003–04 was influenced by a number of factors which include productivity changes in the manufacturing sector, recovery of global economy and world trade, continued trade promotion and trade facilitation efforts of the government, and an appreciating Indian Rupee against the US dollar. Hence India has a wide variety of labour laws which are essential for the smooth functioning of industrial relations in the country. In today’s developing world IT has played an important role to formulate it into a new height. IT plays a role like a magnet, at one pole it is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. As such its magnetic field helps some aspects of life and affects some aspects of life. One of the most critical needs of the burgeoning Indian software industry and other outsourcing service providers is to have the flexibility and the independence to hire the most worthy of the manpower and fire the unproductive employees. There is also a growing need to draw a fine balance between the hire and fire policy of the employer and the rights of the workmen. This article proposes to discuss the Indian retrenchment laws, right of compensation of employees and applicability of these laws to Indian Information Technology (the “IT”) industry

MEANING-

Information Technology (IT) in a broad sense connotes that technology which is connected with information. More particularly it connotes that technology which has taken shape during the last five decades or so involving electronics.  THE Indian IT industry is among the country’s fastest growing sectors. India has been able to establish itself as a competitive and quality destination for outsourcing IT & IT enabled services.

The Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) sector is spreading in India fast, and over five lakh workers and technicians are employed in it. We welcome the development of this sector as it is providing gainful employment to educated persons in India. Several centres in India have developed a large number of call centres and consultancy offices, which are earning enormous profits. Their number is likely to swell very fast in the near future. Accordingly to uphold the network of information technology in India IT Act came into force in 2000.

The use of such technology for the storage, retrieval and dissemination of information has given rise to several legal, social and ethical problems.

EFFECTS ON LABOUR LAWS-

         The direct affect of in formalisation has been deterioration in respect for labour rights. The provisions of large number of labour laws remain non-enforced. The adherence to the core labour standards remains good in paper only. The desire to get more FDI and pressure from the MNCs has caused the government to overlook violations. The ID Act which is applicable to all industrial and commercial establishments defines employee/workmen and both skilled and …

ENDANGERED WORLD – CITIZENSHIP ?

We the world citizens are breathing in a very much insecure society with the increasing dimensions of newer techniques of creating nuisance, terror and ever increasing distrust among citizens world over. Bombs in the bus, train, cinema theatre, open market areas, aero planes and also lying on the garbage tins are only few exhibits of a few peoples’ hatred towards the progressive nations; innocent lives are becoming items of rampage. These inhuman acts are the outcome of free breeding corruption of excessively selfish, narrowly greedy and anti social persons widely distributed throughout the globe. Our irresponsible political leadership has fathered and faithfully nurtured these values for quite sometime, well above four decades. Even In India, we are now only preachers of peace but have always supported criminals and masked their inhuman acts as part and parcel of democracy. We were theoretically known as symbols of tolerance but as a national character now, we display complaints and dissatisfaction on every issue; we are said to believe in “forget and forgive”, but our instinct of taking revenge never calms down. This dualism of Indian practices has been most vividly viable for more than Fifty years; though said to be prevalent in all periods of human civilization. And this dualism or even pluralism of split personalities is rampant world over among all politicians, everywhere thus a common man is becoming an easy victim. This is principally on account of ever increasing economy at any and every cost and this global feature is the motive dogma of modern progress. To be honest in approach, economic progress is friendly to ethical values only in the beginning but soon becomes a bookish conjecture.

The new format of the society is non palatable to millions of simple, honest and humble citizens who believe in brotherhood, love to all human beings and duty as the foremost human religion: those who believe in second religion is an option of thoughts and way of life !!. I have counted heart beats of such people spread world over by way of personal talk, involving and sharing mutual respect.

Exhibition of hatred in the form of terrorism is the latest edition of quelling human values, feelings and ambitions of being a human being. Variable techniques of generating terror are continuously questioning our technological progress dependent-perversions. And the bitter truth is that we can never achieve perfect, clean and honest society. Not because such a society never existed anywhere but because, biologically, this is improbable, impossible and definitely imaginative. Perverts are always born, socially transformed /made, nurtured, and have always been “domesticated” by power.
I intend to enlighten on all these points on the basis of my own studies accumulated as by products of my principal focus in areas of Genetics, focusing principally on reproduction, survival strategies and adaptive behavior in plants and animals including humans …

Industrialisation and Nigeria's 2020 Goals

Posted on Posted in government

Just days after the announcement and even before the survey could be launched, the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria came out with a startling report identifying 37 companies that had closed down across the country over a space of just two weeks. The report once again confirms the bitter state of affairs of the Nigerian economy, where closures are a frequent and constant refrain. A complete account of contemporary Nigerian industry is in fact impossible without a mention of the de-industrialisation that continues to plague it. Just another point of irony in the great ‘Nigerian Paradox’ of acute economic backwardness in a situation of abundant natural and human resources!

The collapse of world oil markets in the early 1980s skewered Nigeria’s foreign exchange reserves and practically stalled economic growth. The cumulative effect of years of incoherent policies further upset the country’s fragile international and domestic fiscal condition, causing massive inflation, unemployment and poverty. Nigeria’s standing as a middle-income country was thoroughly humiliated, and by the 1990s, it was confirmed as one of the poorest in the world. An even more demeaning fall in average living standards accompanied the loss of national fortunes.

The economic downslide proved especially harsh on the manufacturing sector, partly at least due to the over-dependence on oil exports that thwarted economic diversification. With local sourcing of raw material confined to all but a few industries, capacity utilisation plunged dramatically in import-dependent operations. Nigerian manufacturing is predominantly about isolated assembly-line functions with very limited or no backward connections to the economy. These and other factors combined to bring the total GDP contribution from manufacturing down from a little over 9% in 1981 to 6% by the end of the last century.

The renewal of democratic governance in 1999 was followed by an enthusiastic redirection of development policies. Abuja quickly announced multiple programmes to achieve a stable and globally aggressive economy that is not critically dependent on the oil and gas sector. The crux of the government’s new ambitions were outlined with the adoption of the 2020 goals, a radical vision document that foresees Nigeria as one of the 20 top world economies by that year. While there are no comprehensive progress reports yet, some international aid and monitoring agencies are ambiguous about the eventual fate of this grand scheme. Others, like the IMF, are confident that Nigeria will not only achieve its goals, but will do so despite the current global financial crisis. In July, a visiting IMF team reaffirmed optimism about rapid growth and economic diversification, insisting however on the importance of a macroeconomic policy conducive to private sector growth.

What Nigeria effectively needs are policies fostering rapid business development across sectors: In other words, an enterprise revolution that accelerates sustainable growth while simultaneously helping alleviate poverty and improve living standards. The complex socio-economic realities in this corner of West Africa often defy the best laid development plans, and it is no surprise that initiatives like the Nigerian Industrial Development Bank (established 1964) or the structural Adjustment …
