QUESTIONS

  • Can an ex husband have his ex wife charged with theft and fraud for using his credit card when he told her to do so. She signed his name as instructed by her husband at the time.
  • Does a notorized statement overide a power of attorney
  • In 2010 I was granted a bankruptcy, which included my home. However, the home wasn't foreclosed upon until 2011. Now, I want to purchase property. Does the date before I can get a loan count back to when the bankruptcy was granted or to the date of the foreclosure?
  • I recently found out that I am the bio-logical father of a 14 year old daughter who has been adopted. I never knew until June 2011 that I was this child’s father. What rights do I have since this was done without my knowledge? This was actually done in Colorado but I reside in Arizona. I do not want to up-root my child from her adoptive family as she has been with them for 6 years but I would like to met her and let her know that I did not abandon her and I am here for her if she wants to get to know me.
  • How do i notify the courts that i have no income to pay child support
  • Can a new lease be done for a year and a another lease for the same year but with a different amount and can the landlord ask for your social security card after giving all prove when I moved in
  • How long do you get food stamps for?
  • I have full legal sole custody of my daughter with her father having supervised visitation. He hasn't utilized his visitation in 6 months and hasn't paid child support in 3 years. His parents live in Delaware and visit every 1-2 years. I allow them to see my daughter but she is not comfortable going alone as she barely remembers them when she sees them. His parents are threatening to take me to court, do they have a case even though I let them see her but don't let them take her unsupervised? She is 6.
  • My father took out a reverse mortgage. The house appraised @ $320k, they wrote him a line of credit for $425. Thankfully he didn't use all of this money. Is this considered preditory?
  • I will be going through a divorce soon but I want to know a little before I jump into it. I really want to go for full custody and I feel for numerous reasons I would get it. My ex is in the military and I feel it would be good on my part of the battle because he will end up deploying again as well as the chance of him being stationed out of country or even out of state. Is there anything you could tell me?
