Legal Counsel in Wichita, KS for Injured Workers & More


 

Workers Compensation

Clements Law Office will fight to protect your rights when it comes to your workers compensation claims. Research by the Kansas Department of Human Resources, Division of Workers Compensation statistics, show that injured workers who obtain an attorney can receive more than double the financial and medical benefits in claims. This is compared to workers who do not retain an attorney for their claims.

In May of 2011, Kansas workers compensation laws have changed to make it substantially harder for injured workers to file and pursue workers compensation claims in the state of Kansas. Now more than ever, an experienced workers compensation attorney you can trust is necessary to give you the legal representation you need for your work related injury.
 

Social Security & Disability Claims

The Social Security disability insurance program (SSDI) is administered by the federal Social Security Administration (SSA). SSA will pay monthly disability insurance benefits to former workers who successfully claim medical disability under SSA's standards. Social Security determines financial need at application.

SSA defines disability in terms of severity and duration. A person's medical conditions must be severe enough to render him/her unable to work full-time. A person's medical disabilities must have lasted or be expected to last at least twelve (12) consecutive months.

Divorce & Family Law

Learn your rights and how to fight for them in the state of Kansas which is a “no-fault state”. Stating the grounds for divorce isn't necessary for the district court to grant a divorce. When showing “incompatibility' on divorce papers, this is sufficient enough for the courts to grant a divorce to the couple in question. Unless there is an emergency, the state of Kansas cannot grant a divorce until after 60 days have expired from the date the divorce petition is signed. Divorces are granted and will become finalized when the actual entry is filed or decreed with an official district court clerk.

Once your petition for divorce is filed properly, the courts (Kansas) have the jurisdiction and rights to oversee any of the following:
 
Division of Marital Assets
 
Spousal support
 
Any issues that may include: minor children, custody, support & visitation
