  • MY HUSBANDS EX WIFE WAS ARRESTED FOR CHILD ABUSE AND HIS DAUGHTER WAS SENT TO A NON RELATIVE FROM CPS WHAT CAN WE DO TO GET HER HOME WITH US WITH HER FATHER?
  • In 2005, I had double strokes which left me unable to walk, memory loss,or to feed myself. My youngester daughter always took care of me. During that time I lived by myself in my home. My only son volunteered to stay with me in my home and take care of me. He lied to me in Dec. '06 and made me sign over the title of my home. He no longer wanted to take care of me so he told my oldest daughter to take me for the weekend while he changed the locks to my home. My oldest daughter then took me to my grandaughter's home and left me there. Now I am living with my youngest daughter and want my home back. I was in no mental condition to know what was going on, I trusted my only son.
  • The roof has 2 leaks and they won't fix it , I have ask more than twice
  • Our trailer we are rent to own. The electric bill is tied in with 3 other places. Our electric bill goes up every month. The electric bill is connected to the main office. Our A/C isn't working. All summer. What can we do about it? They're refusing to fix it saying it's up to us.
  • We have been renting a condo for 5.5 years and now are moving out. We have heard that no one gets their deposits back. Our biggest concern is the carpet, since it's degraded since we've been here. Is "normal wear and tear" at all a consideration? Is there an algorithm or guide on what they should do. We have an $1100 deposit and can't afford to lose it.
  • can you receive unemployment going to school part-time?
  • My felony conviction has been set aside. How do I now answer job app question that ask if I have "any felony convictions" or that include an exclusion of "annulled, expunged, or sealed convictions". I now know my case disposition is "set aside" (not guilty, not expunged). Based upon I read in this article, I thought I would be able to deny the felony question on job apps but none of the job apps I've seen have asked for "prior" convictions. I have been logging those questions just in case I had someone to ask on how to respond now that I have set aside order.
  • i am 17 years old i have an 8 month old daughter i don't have any type of income to take care of me or my child i am trying to finish school i don't stay with neither one of my parents i am with my grandfather. am i eligible for receiving both?
