QUESTIONS

  • I am pregnant with an ex-lover's child and he wishes no part in the childs life. I know he will not sign the birth certificate when the baby is born. Is there a way I can get a court order for him to put the child on his health insurance? I dont want child support money or anything like that but wish the child to have both mine and his health insurance coverage. Is this possible?
  • I am a legal resident since 1991. I left the US for 1 year to study in Australia. Have I lost my 5 continous years in the us to apply for citizenship?
  • Hi I recently moved into a rental home and things are continuously going wrong. We went without A/C for 4 days before it was fixed, the electrical sockets in the bathroom go on and off continuously on their own for days at a time and we have a toilet that leaks. At what point can we terminate a lease and still get our security deposit back? The landlord expects these things to be fixed by us first then her then a professional. I know nothing about electrical things so now its her turn to look before a professional each time takes days-weeks to fix.
  • When in the middle of divorce proceedings, and one of the two spouses moves out to another residence taking all of his possessions, is it legal to have the locks changed on the marital home even though both co-own the home? The home is up for sale as listed in our beginning divorce papers.
  • My wife passed away in October and a little while after I received a letter from a collection agency called GC Services saying she owed over 49K to them with the original account being from Educational Credit Mgmt Corp. (student loan)I know Arizona is a community property state but am unsure if I am responsible for her debt. I never signed on any loans and she has no estate to distribute to creditors. Her name was not on the house, cars, or anything. I don't feel like I am responsible for the debt but thought the law might see it differently. I have not contacted the collection agency.
  • Can I prohibit the other parent from seeing our child without a custody order?
