QUESTIONS

  • I just did my paternity test and Iam the father when my daughter was born my ex did not put me on the birth certificate so i want to get another birth certificate with my name on it? Is this a simple procedure done at the social security office just bringing in my paternity test papers. Cause my ex has the original birth certificate?
  • I have 50% legal custody and 15% physical custody of my son. Can my ex-wife take him out of his current school and move him to different school with out my permission?
  • My mother recently passed away & she had a live in boyfriend. Everything was left to us like her house & I was wondering how we go about having her boyfriend move out? What should we do? We have all the legal documents stating her house is now our house but have no idea what to do about getting him out. How does eviction work when he's got no rights to the house or anything else?
  • If we already have a child support order in place; how do I get an order for back support that was not granted the first time because I did not initially ask for it in my response.
  • Is it legal for my landlord to charge me to have her call a repairman out for health and safety related repairs? The heater stopped working and it is below freezing at night and she says she will call someone out after we pay her $75 to make the call.
  • If you are a miner can they arrest you without notifying the parents and can they detain you without giving you a phone call
  • I've completed most of court orders except for a few fines I'm trying to get my felonies set aside but I'm at a hold up I'm not making very much money and I'm paying child support ,is there a way to get my fines quashed or reduced so my set asides can take place
  • My father has turned my girlfriend in to DHR on suspicision of child abuse of my son. I am a single parent with full custody of my son. My girlfriend lives out of state. My father has threatened to file for temporary custody unless I allow my son to stay with him until the case is closed. I do not have the funds to fight my father in court and felt I had no other choice. My son has been with my father for three nights now. I want to take him back home with me but does my father have the ability to take temporary custody and if so do I need a lawyer to deny him this?
  • We are senior citizens. A bank is offering us a home loan that we assumed was fixed interest-the rate dropped a fraction, even-then I happened to notice an unfamiliar phrase with a tiny checked box-'demand feature'. I looked it up: the bank can demand payment, calling the loan, at any time without giving a reason. It said that some states prohibit that practice. Is Arizona one? Calling the loan could destroy us and force the property into foreclosure.
  • My dad hasn't been apart of my life for 3 years and lives out of state.My mom has sole custody of me and I want to change my last name to my mom's maiden name. Can my sister and I have our mom change our name and does my dad need to approve it since mom has sole custody?
