Tulsa Court Appointed Special Advocates- CASA volunteers help give a child, that has been removed from their home due to allegations of abuse or neglect, a voice in court. Instead of a judge having a pile of papers on their desk, they have a person that is able to speak for a child. The CASA volunteers talk with parents, foster parents, doctors, therapists, teachers, caseworkers, attorneys and anyone else involved in the case. They are then about the give their valuable information and their opinion to the judge. CASA volunteers play a very important role in these children's lives and are often the only consistent person the the child's life during this time. For more information, contact tulsacasa.org.

How can I know I am not paying junk closing fees?- TTCU The Credit Union has low closing fees because we measure profitability by member benefit and experience. We find out what fees we can get rid of because our members don't use them or benefit. In other places there are many different fees that are added that go to whoever is doing the service. We took all the fees and set a flat fee, $649, plus appraisal and title work. There are 3 basic types of fees- lender fees, inspections (which you as the buyer will generally determine, unless required by the mortgage company), and title fees. The reality is that you control most of the inspection fees. The title fees help ensure your title is good on the home. Finally the lender fees. Check the lender fees against a 2nd or 3rd lender. Always ask for a closing disclosure statement and get one from more than one lender. Compare them and find out what each is charging. Also look at the interest rate. Some companies will charge less in fees but have a higher interest rate. They are really just compensating for lower fees with higher rates. It is best to compare both.
