QUESTIONS

  • Air conditioning has been out for 3 days- rental company will only pay us $30 a day to get a hotel.

Home Owner waiting on home warranty company who is not cooperating. Don't know what to do.. Inside of home is 98 degrees & we have a small child (3 yrs), making it unsafe. We try to talk with rental company, they just get angry. What remedies do we have to get this repaired fast?
  • If I pay off my house how does it affect the other two people on the deed?
  • I am on permanent disability. I own a 2009 car (my only car) and owe back taxes. I am single. Can IRS seize my car or my disability income?
  • If I filed an order of protection against my wife but I have a court order to get my kids every other week end, will I violate my order of protection by getting them, if so will I be in violation with the visitation order
  • My wife and I have been separated for 8 months after being married for 33 years; she is using illegal drugs and drinking and driving. Is there a way to protect myself from liability, without filling for divorce?
  • My lease said nothing about breaking it so when I did my landlord said she was keeping my sec deposit. Can she do that by law if the lease said nothing about breaking it?
  • I have had sole custody of my three sons since my divorce in 2007. Their father moved away to vegas and only sees them at christmas, doesnt pay child support and only calls on their birthdays (after i send a text to remind him). I have ben remarried 2 years but my husband has been apart of their lives for four years now. Can he file to be a guardian so he has legal rights? How would we get this started and what would we need to do? Would this effect child support?
  • how am i able to break my lease , when my place is infested with mold? i have bathroom mold in the walls ( i know its black ) and i have mushrooms coming from the ceiling
  • My senior friend cannot pay her credit card debts (her son ran them up and then abandoned her). Her only income is Social Security and her home was inheirited (already paid off when it was inheirited). She cannot afford to file bankruptcy. She quit paying her debts over a year ago- sent them a letter stating that she cannot pay, fixed income etc. One of of the creditors recently sent a letter regarding arbitration. If she does not respond it means she agrees to their terms. I suggested to her that she respond by sending the original letter. Is there a better way to respond? Also, is her home safe from a judgement? I know her income is. I thought I read her home could not be taken. If true, would it require a lengthy court battle?
  • 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?

STORIES
