Say bye bye to half of your pension.
I’m out west and have used the services for my divorce. Any questions PM me.
The legal service is good but, you still need to make sure you get the best lawyer for your situation.
Mine has offered a legal benefit for decades.
I used the benefit when my ex took me back to court, got a great firm I still use today for stuff. They gave me a set amount off the top and a discount for hours over the allotment. Well worth it, just do your due diligence and make sure you get a good lawyer/firm.
Wow! Something....you are not all-knowing about. Odd. Lol.
I have. My divorce was amicable. We just needed the lawyer to draft the documents and submit to the court.
At which point in the process do you know you got a "good lawyer/firm"?
I've heard of Local's doing that, just don't know of any.
My Local would never consider it.
Have used legal services for several things over the years. The attorneys were always free.
We have it out here not sure how it works. I looked into it 1 time I thought I remembered it saying it would help with divorce if everyone agrees so if you guys not in agreement maybe no help.
You can use it for almost anything. I did when we bought our house (no charge), my kid got a speeding ticket (no charge) and divorce stuff after the fact (charged at a discounted rate once the set amount they give you was used up). It's a nice benefit to have.
"My" local does. Often times you are better off securing your own attorney. (Not a slam on Teamsters but on the lawyer in our area).
If you don’t like or cannot find an acceptable attorney in your area. Any attorney can represent you under the plan if they fill out the teamsters legal paperwork.
Why not?....does your Local perceive a liability in doing so???
Yes- I have gotten reimbursed a few times. Probably could have included that in previous post.
Agreed. I have multiple coworkers who have gone through a divorce and used our union lawyer and they say he is not easy to work with for a divorce. He is good at handling other things, but not divorce. So to the OP, get some feedback from your coworkers if they have used the lawyer/firm for a divorce and see if they have positive things to say. If not, then shop around for a lawyer who will get the job done right.
That's exactly why.
Someone doesn't like the outcome of their case, and tries to blame the Local.
Kinda like they do with our pension and health and welfare benefits???
Does your Local run the American Income Life Insurance scam on your members like mine does every year???
My Local has had members try sue over panel decisions.
