QUESTIONS

  • I have twins and i wasnt married at the time they were born. My ex put him his last name knowing that they werent his, after 3 yrs we broke up and i put him on child support, he denied to help me and requested a dna test, of course it showed up they were not his, now, i dont know anything about him and i want to change my kids last name to mine, how can i do that or what papers do i need, we already went to court and show the dna results to the judge, now, to have a birth certificate again with my last name what do i need to do

  • When does FMLA start over? When can you use it again? Does it vary between employers? I used 12 weeks ending April 17th 2015. When would I be eligible again? My employer said at some point you could get partial of the 12 months and that it's a rolling 12 months. Please explain. I'm so confused.

  • My roommate got arrested for selling a small amount of pot, we got our apartment raided and got evicted within a week, I was never arrested, never charged with anything, and the warrant was for his detainment, the search of his property, and his arrest, my name was not on the warrant whatsoever. The apartment complex now wants to charge us for the remainder of the lease and other charges which comes out to about $9K, what are my options?
  • My father is 94 and is in critical condition. We checked his will for the first time and we have some concerns. His will was made out in 1988 when he was a widower and had 4 adult live children. He since has remarried and lost two children. Is this will null because of the change circumstances?
  • my daughter has been going through cps for a year. right now child is with the dads mom foster care. if my grandson is put up for adoption can I adopt my grandson. I am the mothers mother. the other grandma does not want to. what rights would I have to be able to do this?
  • Is there a way to read a will without contacting the surviving spouse and/or immediate family?
  • I don't know if you can help us or maybe direct us to someone who can. KayKay Properties took over as managers of our apartment building. This is not an assisted living facility, but regular low income senior apartments. I am one of the original tenant and the other original tenants and we have gone through several managers. But this company has come in and is trying to dictate to us, change rules that make so sense and threaten with evictions. We have been told that none of our grandchildren under the age of 18 can spend the night with us anymore, if they do, we will be evicted. If someone is on medical marijuana they can't smoke it in their apartment, they have to leave the building and smoke in the parking lot. If they smoke in the building they will be evicted. We can't go to check out mail in our robes, if we do we will be evicted. They will spray for roaches, but we have to count the number of dead ones, and if they have to spray again we have to pay for it. If we don't pay for the exterminator, we will be evicted. If any of us are ill and need family or friends to help us, we have to let management know who they are, where they work and how much they make, if not...you guessed it, we will be evicted. Please, we need someone who can help this is like living in a communist community. Rose Turman 602 599 1033
