QUESTIONS

  • How old does a child have to be to decide on what parent they want to live with?
  • If my apartment has been broken into while I was at home sleeping in the middle of the night and a police report has been made and another night when my car was vandalized a police report was made and another night a neighbors car was broken into, the same complex a police report was made, Do I have the right to break my lease without penalty by the landlord?
  • When I apply for a job, should I tell them about my disability?
  • My roommate flaked out on me and I need to pay a termination fee for the apartment. We are both signed on the lease but I need to know if my roommate is also responsible to split the termination fee and if so, what if my roommate refuses? Will she be responsible for paying her part? The termination fee is four months of rent and I am able to pay two (half) of the overall fee. My landlords said if she won't pay her part, it will be sent to collections and they will also require me to pay the remaining balance if she doesn't.
  • We rented from a complex in Phoenix with a 13 month lease. We gave a 30 day notice and broke our lease after 6 months for my wife to take a job in PA. The lease states that we are responsible for the entire amount due UNTIL the apt is rented. That amounts to $11,000! It is now in collections, so I called to see if the apt. has been rented yet. I was not told if it has been, but the mgr. said it does not matter because we are still responsible for ALL of the rent, since we did not pay it all when we moved out. . Can they charge us for rent on an apt that is being rented? If so--RIDICULOUS
  • Our family is relocting to another state. Our 16 year old daughter is not wanting to go and says "she refuses." We are an average American family and never had a problem with our daughter. She does well in school and my wife and I have always held very good jobs. What are her rights as a minor and ours as parents. She is claiming that if she runs away, she legally cannot be "forced" to go home.
  • Orig divorce decree and child support orders were in AZ. I now live in WA state with our child; father remains in AZ. Our child will be 18 next year but will graduate at age 19 from HS. He is deemed disabled. Father and I are in agreement re: extending child support beyond HS through community college and longer, if necessary. We know what to do re: notifying the OCSE that the child will be a full-time student in HS beyond 18. What we don't know how to handle is extending beyond HS. Do we modify existing decree/child support or new petition for this thru Superior Court in Mohave Cty? Thanks.
  • I've been divorced since 2002 and in our Divorced Decree he will pay $650 per month on child support. My ex husband is in the military and has been stationed in Japan. When we got divorced he is only 2nd class in the Navy and now master chief. I never asked for increased of child support but is it possible to get my child support modify after all this year's of the amount he had been giving me?
  • Can i fight for my childs custody and visitations rights ?
