QUESTIONS

  • I am asking this question on behalf of my dear friend who is a senior and does not own a computer in which to ask this question. A year ago, my friends son bought a home in Youngtown, Arizona, for his mom 76 yrs of age and his dad who is 84 yrs of age, to live in until they die, rent free. Today he wants to evict them. What can they do? Do they have any rights? What are AZ laws regarding unwritten tenancy agreements?
  • My daughter's grandmother was granted visitation for 1 sunday a month, due to recent occurances, her father and i are wanting to go back to court and ask the judge to revoke her visitation rights. What do we need to file to get the correct hearing?
  • Is it true that you can motion to have a Commissioner replaced by a Judge, I've heard that the Judge is a elected official and a Commissioner is appointed by a Judge, since the Judge is elected by the people (me), don't I have that right?
  • I need to prepare a writ for the Superior court of Maricopa county. I have a judgment and want the sheriff to go out and seize something. The court keeps sending my packet back to me saying I don't have this or I need that but do not explain how to do it. Very frustrating. The current reject says "....the writ you are submitting to get issued to the Superior Court is the paperwork for a Justice Court". Searched for hours and cannot find any such application for Superior Court on a writ.
  • What is considered "a reasonable amount of time" for repairs? We have had no hot water for 3 days and I sent my landlord the laws and he came back saying that they can turn off the hot water to make repairs & they aren't being "negligent" so we can't take action.
  • My son is 5 years old, his father is on the birth certificate. He has never lived with the father, he went to prison 2 weeks after he was born and has been in and out since then, What legal rights does he have?? And what would I need to do to gain soul custody? I have no contact with him.
  • landlord requested for us to look for another home to move in because they were going to move back into home and we still had 9 months left on lease, so can the landlord hold any of our security deposit or do they need to refund all of it?
  • If you have only missed one day at work, Are you required to give your employer a doctors note? I thought you had to be absent for at least three days before a doctors note is required
  • I am representing myself in court in regards to visitations and I am needing to subpoena records from my childrens therapist for the hearing in January. How do I do this?
  • Under what legal authority does the father (never married) of my 6 year old, who has been deemed unsuitable for joint custody & has yet been able to abide by basic court appointed supervised visitation guidelines, have to continually bring me to court with neglectful parenting allegations, which are always dropped &, coincidentally, decided that he is the perpetrator in each case? Furthermore, as victim to his court declared domestic abuse (physical/metal), how is it that I am being required to be in contact with the perpetrating father, or at risk of losing my son due to parental alienation?
