QUESTIONS

  • I started Beauty School in Sept 07, I was 17 at the time.The school had me sign for the loan without a co-signer. My parents filled out the paper for the Pell Grant and wanted to pay so much monthly. The school said I had to have a Subsidized Stafford loan to get the Pell Grant.Am I responsible for the loan? Since I was told afterwards that it was not a legal binding contract due to my age and that neither one of my parents co-signed on it?
  • What do I do if my ex registered my daughter for kindergarten and we have 50/50 yet she didn't include me and we live an hour away from each other
  • I was born in Oregon and reside in Arizona. My birth name was my Mom's maiden name however, I would now like to take my Dad's last name. Where do I file for a name change Oregon or Arizona? If Oregon do I have to appear for the court date if I don't live in Oregon?
  • My brother lives in West Virginia and he is suffering from dementia. He has no one who can assist him in West Virginia. I need to find an attorney in Arizona who can help me become his guardian. Recently he went to an attorney in WV to make out a will; however, he could not pass the competency test. He answered only one question--his name.
  • How can I get paid for work I did
  • If I paid a medical office to process my FMLA paperwork with my employer (TWICE) and they missed the deadline by one day even though they were in communication with my HR department. What options do I have against either the medical office or my employer? I ultimately got denied and had to work with my doctor to get on light duty to keep an income.
  • I've went to City Hall ask my landlord to fix repairs I've had to move out of the house because the house is making me and my children sick my daughter has already had cancer so I sent my landlord a certified letter asking him to make the repairs I don't get a response or anything and I'm still homeless with my children and now he's selling the house he's not fixing anything what do I do
  • a roommate borrowed money from me and that money was from my ssdi government money and now is refusing to pay me back what can I do
  • I didn't pay rent this month due to the landlord not fixing anything within the last six months. I decided to move since they are not fixing anything. Can the landlord lock my possesions in the house or do they have to give me a notice first?
  • Can I request "in-home" assistance thru AHCCCS? We are in need of assistance for someone with mild Alheimer's as reminders for taking medicine and for personal health & safety a few hours a day. Is this possible thru AHCCCS?
