QUESTIONS

  • I currently am renting a home. I allowed a woman and her 2 children to come stay a few weeks with me when she became homeless. She is not on the lease and does not receive mail here. She has become very violent towards me and my children so I want her to move. What can I do? When I called the police to escort her out he told me he'd arrest ME for trying to make her leave with her children. What can I do to get this woman out of my rental home who is violent?
  • My 17 year old son has received a subpeona to testify as a witness against his friend charged with aggravated assault. My son does not wish to testify. What are his rights and what are the possible consequences if he chooses not to testify? We plan to show up in court but he plans to refuse to answer any questions.
  • my husband left me and my children, he is the father of our 6 yo daughter. He has been gone almost 2 months, and has not helped out financially at all. My question is, in the event of my death or incapacities, how do I grant my parents legal custody of my daughter. I am wondering if I can type a letter and have it notarized since we have not started divorce proceedings at this point in time. I just want to make sure my parents get my children in case of tragedy.
  • What if my child has no father listed on the birth certificate,I don't want a paternity test, and I have handled ALL of his medical care for his condition since he was born and he lives with me, do I need to file for custody of my son even though I have it, it's just not legal through a court?

Do I file with the State of New Mexico or Navajo Nation. We have 2 children therefore child support will be filed. And can I charge my husband and his companion with "Adultery"?
