QUESTIONS

  • i got pregnant and i found out later that my boyfriend is still pretty much married but separated.and he was living with me for almost 3 mos and i kick him out coz we are having problem already.my question is: If I use my last name when our baby is born on the birth cert. will i still get a child support or that will be a prob.? and he wont tell me his Soc.Sec number and the address of where he works..and he is paying child support for his 3 kids
  • How do I begin to file probate if there is no will?
  • I have a 3 year old son and his father and i are separated for a year and 5 months. I also have a domestic abuse protection order against my son's father, my question is.. can I apply for child support with no visitation? and also do I still have to face him in court for child support?
  • If I'm being charged with possession of dangerous drugs for sale, transportation of dangerous drugs for sale, misconduct involving weapons, possession of illegally altered firearm. Being this is my first offense is there any way around a mandatory minimum prison sentence, and into a treatment instead? I don't feel that 5years flat at the very least would do me any good as opposed to a treatment program.
  • When my son was arrested somehow he was wrongfully charged. It shows the wrong charges on the Az Court Records Search. I asked our attorney at the time to get the wrong charges removed but as we found out today, he did not do that... What can we do to get this taken care of? Who actually sits at a computer and puts these charges on the records search for any one to see?
  • I have joint legal decision making with my child's father. he recently request a list of everyone who lives in our household do I need to give him that information?
  • If my ex-husband owes back support, and now our daughter is living with him, does he still owe the back support, and do I need to start paying support to him?
  • I have just started to get my wages garnished agian from a car loan I had with a bank five years ago. I started a new job and was getting garnished from my last employment I had gotten my total down more then half and now that they have started garnishing at my new employment the total I owe has more then doubled off my original balance in which they sued me for in the beginging, my question is just how much intrest can a bank (not a collection agency) charge on a defaulted loan that is in the process of being garnished legally? I will end up being garnished for the next 6 years at this rate.
  • What recourse do you have when a judge (new /inexperienced) makes a horrible nonsensical decision on child support payments, arrears in support, health insurance responsibility, massive medical bill responsibility, and all issues went against the custodial mother all responsibility was placed on the mother and no consequences were bestowed upon the dead beat father whatsoever ( the fact that no support had been paid for an entire year not medical bills either was ignored by the judge). The judge ignored the proof the attorney presented and sided with the dead beat. No support continues to date
  • My former employer is verbally abusive on a daily basis and creates an extremely hostile workplace. After tolerating this for 6 months, I finally gave him my 2 week notice. He proceeded to say 'No, I'll end this right here' asked me for my key and walked me out. I then filed for unemployment, which has since been denied. I'm sure he said I quit, which is not the case. This person also made advances to my 16 ear old daughter when she was at work with me over the summer. Do I have a claim? I'm having a hard time getting a response from local attorney's.
