QUESTIONS

  • My husbands adult children is talking about committing my husband because he does not make decisions without consulting me, his wife. They say in the state of Arizona, they have the right to do this regardless of what I say or feel on the issue and that spousal rights do not matter if the children want this done. We just moved to Arizona, surely this cannot be true. How can adult children that has not been around him override a wife?

  • After signing my lease agreement and after moving in, my landlord had some guy come to the house to do a stucco job due to termites. We were not aware of the house having termite until after we were settled in. The guy said he would come back to work on the house because he needed the landlord signature to start the repairs. Well I guess my landlord never signed the paper because the guy never returned. It has been months and we still have termites. What can I do in this situation.
