QUESTIONS

  • I bought a home in a MH park and applied for rental then landlord changed lock on door and wont let me in and denies application but wont tell me why. How do I get in my own home? I a more than willing to pay rent. I have almost 700 credit and no fellonies.
  • I recently found out that I am the bio-logical father of a 14 year old daughter who has been adopted. I never knew until June 2011 that I was this child’s father. What rights do I have since this was done without my knowledge? This was actually done in Colorado but I reside in Arizona. I do not want to up-root my child from her adoptive family as she has been with them for 6 years but I would like to met her and let her know that I did not abandon her and I am here for her if she wants to get to know me.
  • I have been living in Arizona for the last 10 years but have 3 children in California. I have tried to work at child support arrangemmetns privately with the mother of my children but have not been able to come to an agreement. I have two children now in AZ that i pay child support for no problem. How do I go about starting child support case living in AZ for CA. I am also in the process of getting married to my childrens mother in AZ so I may not sure how this would affect my child support case in CA. Wanting to care of my kids but mom wont allow me to do so.
  • Basically what happened is I signed a year lease with my landlord. We completed the entire year and moved out. Turns out they auto enrolled us into month to month without our consent. The bill started to rack up and we had no knowledge of it. They end up gettig a judgement against us without anyone of our knowledge. Its been about 4 years and i found out recently. Is there anyway i can dispute this? Do i not deserve my day in court?
  • My husband has a child from a previous relationship. We aren't positive that the child is actually his. He is a resident of Arizona, the mother lives in Washington state along with the child. My question is this, which state , Arizona or Washington, would have jurisdiction to decide Child Support payments and establishing paternity?
  • Where do I go to fill out an application and speak to someone regarding emergency food stamps and cash assistance.
  • I rent a single-family dwelling & my lease states that the landlord is responsible for all Landscaping in the front & back of the house. Does this mean that she is responsible for the payment of the water for the sprinkler drip system? Currently the only water meter is on my water account that I pay for. Is it legal for her to dictate how much water is used for the bushes and trees outside the house? She does not allow me to adjust the sprinkler system at all & she has her gardener increase the water for her orange tree without my knowledge or consent. Again, the water meter is under my name
