QUESTIONS

  • If i entered into a lease agreement to rent with free utilities is my landlord allowed to enter my home and install a locked cover on my air conditionong/central air monitor/control box and set it for 75 degrees leaving me with no way to adjust temperature?
  • I am a homeowner, temporarily living and working out of state and have allowed a family member to live there rent free. She is taking over the utilities, I continue to pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance. She also will take care of maintenance and her own personal desired improvements, with permission, at her expense. My question is, does this relationship put me in a position of being a landlord, which I do not want to be, or am I a non-resident homeowner? Can you point me to state law and statutes on this subject?
  • My daughter was born in a different state than which we live in. I am in the process of leaving the father because he verbally abuses me on a daily basis. We know that he is not her biological father, can I have his name removed from the birth certificate in the state we live in? Can I change my daughters last name from his last name to mine?
  • My parental rights were severed to my son who was born in 2003, members of my family have visitation rights. Is there anyway I can request to visit? And how old does he need to be to have contact with me?
  • As an unmarried mother with physical custody and no court orders- do I have to allow the father visitation?
  • I have a question I need help with? If I was to go and get my kids but the mother and I have no custody agreement or order in place can I get in trouble. I feel as if my kids are being neglected and while they are going to my mother's house over the weekend I want to get them but I don't know if I can get into any trouble with the police being that there is no custody agreement.
  • Relative on parole & will not listen. He is not forthcoming with details but was stopped in Mohave county & now has a criminal case in their court system. He lives in Yavapai County. He never showed for court and has failed to pay fines for a different case from 2 months ago. He is saying he is going to flee to another state. When he flees & WHEN he is caught - what kind of additional time is he looking at for purposely leaving the state to avoid going back to prison. The last entry in the Mohave court system is 8/17/15. Today is 9/1 - How long does will it take for a new warrant to be issued?
  • A friend spent 12 years in prison for gang related, armed Robbery charges when he was 16. He was released, had some marijuana possession charges and an assault charge over the years. Recently, he was arrested for 2nd degree murder. What type of sentence is he looking at considering his past?
  • I live in TX. My daughter and her mother moved to AZ 2 years ago. I paid support and maintained telephonic contact. During this time, unknown to me, the mother became a heroine addict and gave temporary custody to the grandmother. When I was informed of the situation, I attempted to gain custody of my daughter and the grandmother, who worked for Pima Co. Superior Court, filed for permanent custody. With our court date set for Nov 4th and my plane and hotel paid, the court calls me and says they changed the date. Is that even legal with less than 24 hours notice? Do I have any recourse?
  • What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
