QUESTIONS

  • my mother is 89 and at the hospital. if the dr. orders her to go to a nursing ,will Medicare help her How do we find out what type of financial help she can receive, ie: electircal, water etc.In her home. Will the state help with property tax?
  • Do I need a sole custody order for my son if he lives with me, I take care of him, his "sperm donor" has never really been there, has verbally acknowledged that he's his but wants a Dna test for peace of mind (I don't want a dna test cuz it's against my religious beliefs), he has no father listed on the birth certificate, do I still need an order? Can he take my son away from me even tho he can't take care of him?
  • If I need to be hospitalized for an extended period, can I rent out my mobile home?
  • how long does a property management company have to accept or deny your application for occupancy? How do they have to respond if you are denied?
  • My spouse and i both have a retirement plan thru our employer. We are 38 and 40 years old and getting divorced. Since we both have our own retirement plan, do we each get 1/2 of the others during a divorce? this seems silly? How does the court view this scenario? If only one spouse had a retirement plan i could see the division of it but it seems if both parties have a retirement plan, you would just keep your own?
  • I have raised my granddaughter since she was born. Her mother gave her to me in 2013 and never came back. She calls sometimes and comes to see her every few months. The baby's father is in prison and has had no contact with the child except for a few cards he has sent over the last 3 years. Can I file for custody due to abandonment?
  • How do I sue the executor(my aunt) of my mother's estate (no will) for breach of fiduciary duty?My mother died almost two years ago and there has still not been any distribution of funds from the sale of her home or possessions.She had a car which I left at the house my aunt was staying at in February and I just learned in September that the lawyer representing her had not been told they had the car and it had not been put up for sale yet.My aunt also took jewelry and other possessions of my mother's when it appears my brother and I are the only heirs according to AZ law when there is no will.
  • What happens if you rent a house until foreclosure?
  • When the Court Sets Aside a misdemeanor conviction and orders a person released from all penalties and disabilities, does this mean that all civil rights (voting, gun rights, etc.) are restored? And if so are there any other documents that have to be submitted to complete this action?
  • My friend and I was pulled out of the store .possible stolen vehicle.report was called in from border patrol, the Sheriffs department was called in for back and I was arrested for findings from the search. The truck wasn't stolen and our word against them in regards to the giving permission . My question is the responsibility of probable cause by transfer of authority does that diminish when the Border Patrol reported the stolen vehicle does that give probable cause to the sheriff by proxy there should be some case law the states if there was no probable cause by the Border Patrol
