QUESTIONS

  • I am 19 and am pregnant and I'm trying to find out how to get some money until I have the baby so I can start work again?
  • While I was with my Mom at her boyfriend's house in CA, my friend and I walked in on them watching porn in the living room. They didn't hear us come in so she doesn't know that I know. I told my Dad and he is trying to decide how to handle this. I want to know (and so does my Dad) if this is reason enough for my Dad to get sole custody. Now they both have joint physical custody. Has a crime been commited and how will the courts view this event? Thank you.

  • How do I find out if there is a sale date for my home that is in foreclosure?
  • My ex wife moved to another state with our children, she does not work, and I ssupport their household financially, however it is all considered child support as it is writen in the decree. I ensured the decree stated I could claim the children on my taxes so long as I am up-to-date with my payments. Due to the condition, there is a form she is required to sign. I am up-to-date but she refuses to sign. What are my options to enforce the decree?
  • My kids father and I have joint legal custody and he has visitation every other weekend from Friday to Sunday. He constantly moves and now his current apartment is a 1 bd 1 ba. His parents and daughter live with him. So once our 3 kids are there that is 3 adults and 4 kids in this place. My kids told me they sleep on the floor, on a couch, or even in a large walk in closet. Also for the second time they have come back with bug bites all over their legs, arms, and even faces. What steps I can take so they are only can only be there during the day until he changes his situation?
  • If a police officer is not on duty the day of a trial, will he come to court and testify? Is he required to show up even though it is his day off?
  • I currently have a tenant that has not paid their rent. It was due on the 1st and they were sent late notices. They will not return phone calls but have emailed saying they will pay and then never follow through. I sent a 5 day pay or quit notice with delivery confirmation because in the past they will not sign/pickup certified mail. It was delivered on the 17th and it says they must pay by the 22nd. When can I file for eviction? Tomorrow the 23rd or do I have to wait longer?
  • My wife and I are presently fight for cusody of our 7yr old. She lives in Fort Mohave, AZ and I live in Phoenix. Since we have not come to an agreement on the cusody matter, she has been not allowing me to speak or bring my son to Phoenix for a long weekend. What rights do I have? We are still waiting on a court hearing in front of a judge in Mohave County. Note: She is not living with the child, her parents are taking care of him.
  • I have a 12 year old son, who has a hyphenated last name. He wants to drop one of the hyphened names so that we have the same last name. His bio father never signed the birth certificate and has never been in the picture. Do I need to contact the bio father in order to get the name change? Or can I do the name change without notifying him? As stated, my son's bio father never signed the birth certificate and has never been in the picture.
