QUESTIONS

  • If a aparmentt manger enters your aparmentt without notice.and property is missing, what can I do about it legally?
  • I'm 17 and my dad took my car away. Yes, he bought the car and paid off the insurance but the car is under my name. He got cocky with me last night and threatened to sell my car but its under MY NAME. What are my rights, can I take him to court, or call the cops and make them make him give me the keys ?
  • How can I negotiate a reduction in the amount garnished by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • My mother passed away 5 yrs ago. Estate has never been settled in probate or anything. My sister moved her son into the home that was willed to us. He pays her the mortgage payment and she makes sure everything is paid. Home is still in deceased mothers name. We had verbal agreement that he would also pay me $200 a month and isnt paying anymore. I want to settle in court due to no executor of estate. My sister assumed executor but refuses to settle. I want her to buy me out and I will sign off on estate and she can do what she wants. What can I do???
  • How can we separate finances during our sepatation? I want to buy a house of my own with out obligating him or puting myself at risk of it being considered community property. He has moved out and our home is up for sale.
  • Are there any laws that protect the landlord and/or tenant in regards to late fees that can be incorporated into a lease? Would $10.00 per day after the 3rd day of the month be considered reasonable or excessive. I have tried to research this in the landlord & tenant act but I cannot find anything specific. Would ARS 44-1201 or 44-1201 apply to late fees in regards to unpaid rent?
  • After divorcing in 1999 I raised my 3 children for years while my ex scated on the majority of the support she was supposed to pay. I let it go. After she failed to return two from a visitation I agreed to allow them to stay with her. She jacked up my payment by 4x as much based on a former income. She now takes 50% of my income including Soc Sec and is starving me out. A civil matter at this time. Possilby criminal fraud. She is a legal secretary and knew what she was doing. 87 filings. I can't afford the copying fees.
  • If both parents have passed away and the will wasn't finished before they were both passed away, but their wishes were known as to who should get the 2 children. Will that family member get the children or who legally would custody of the kids go to?
  • My daughter's father has not been in her life for the past 5 years (she is 6 now), but he does pay child support. Is there a way to petition to have his parental rights terminated so that my husband and only known "dad" can legally adopt her and we won't have to worry about him pursuing his rights at a later date?
  • Am I legally able to move out of state with my son, if the father is on the birth certificate? He has been active in our sons life as well as paying for his needs. However I am not safe nor is my children's state of mind and well being. There is 15 years of emotional, physical and mental abuse from him. My children as well as myself want a safe home and stability. I can't provide that unless I relocate. I have a job lined up in the new state as well as a home I can afford on my own The town sheriff is 200 feet away from me as well as CIA behind me I would be renting my home from family friends
