QUESTIONS

  • Does anyone know how long (even ballpark) it takes AHCCCS to follow up on a fraud report? I sent one in on April 1st, and the fraudulent person is *still* getting services! I gave them all of the info they need to verify this person has group insurance. They just have to make one phone call to prove the case.
  • My exhusband has signed over his parental rights to my 11 year old daughter. If I go to the courts can she have her last name changed to mine since he no longer has any rights to her?
  • What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
  • With joint custody, how are heath insurance premiums, co pays, dental , optical all handled? One parent pays for all as in my daughters case?

  • A few days before I turned 18, my adopted family of 4 years kicked me out and dropped me off at my birth mothers house. (Who is not capable of taking care of me) they didn't even give me a quarter of my belongings and I also didn't receive any of my documents (I.e birth certificate, social security card, etc) this has caused me many problems in the year since dealing with trying to get a car, registering for college and other things. In order to get new documents, I need to have other documents and I have none. Is there something I can legally do?
