QUESTIONS

  • My wife and I are separated and will file for divorce. She is refusing to let me see my girls who are 9 & 11. I am a good dad who does not do anything illegal, never committed domestic violence or other crime. Up to this point, I have raised and cared for my girls with the most love. It is killing me not to be able to see them. Can she keep them from me? What can be done until the divorce papers are filed? What are my rights?
  • I've been married for 10 yrs,all of which I have been a homemaker.My spouse and I have 2 kids one is disabled.Since separating he has tried to control me with money,only giving me $150 biweekly which I am to support the kids on.I have filed for divorce and am awaiting our hearing for temporary orders.Before I left I paid the bills as I usually did.But he then took over our joint account where he let checks bounce.One I was turned into county attorney for.They are now on me to pay it.I have 0 income barely feeding kids it was his bill for home.Can I legally withdraw $ from jnt acct to pay this?
  • I have joint & several restitution,i have never paid into, i served prison time, they didn't. Now, it's going to go to an outside collection agency. I am in fear they'll try to take my husbands income by force. Can they do this? He is not involved at all.
  • i lived in home and left due to domestic violence. the property manger recieved my order of protection and allowed me to vacate. 6 years later my check is being garnished for unpaid rent and attorney fees. they got a judgement from the court and a collection agency is who garnished my check. i have to pay over 4000 dollars. I thought since domestic vioelnece i was able to leave according to 33-318.
  • What if a parent says his employer has deducted the support, but it has not been received for some time and is in arrears?
  • Do you have to show up to court? I'm not disputing the eviction. I just want to know how many days I have to move and the papers are not 100% clear. The court is further than I thought and would rather not waste the money in gas to go if it's really not necessary.
  • where is the office located and the number
  • I never got my daughter's birth certificate. All I have is the one from the hospital. I now live out of state. What do I need to do to get a certified birth certificate?
  • We have temporary guardianship of our granddaughter. Both her parents are drug abusers. We would like to have a more permanent type of guardianship or custody. Our concerns are how can we do this and how would our granddaughter keep her AHCCS? We have insurance through my husbands work, but our granddaughter would lose her mental health support if her AHCCS were to stop. What can we do to keep her safe and keep her mental health support?
  • Do I need long-term care insurance?
