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?
  • i have my 11 yr old daughter every single summer vacation all summer and every single school vacation since she was in school., do i still have to send my ex wife child support all summer long even tho i have her?
  • A month and a half ago there was a water leak in my apartment causing floor damage to most of the apartment. While our landlord did repair the leak, the floor was never repaired and I am afraid of health problems from mold growing under the floorboards. After asking multiple times the only thing the landlord has said is she will take care of it sometime in the future because she is busy with her personal life. What can I do in this situation and is this breaching the lease for failure to repair?
  • A sibling had a piece of land that was sold in a trustee's sale in June 2016 . It was 2.55 acres and had no single family residence. I am clear that it doesn't fall under the deficiency exemption because of the size of the lot and no home. Since it's been over 90 days, is it safe to say there will be no legal recourse? Can they still send the debt to ordinary collections agent? Thank you
  • DOES STATE AUTOMATICLY PICK UP CHARGES IF THERE IS NO VICTEM
  • I’m a veteran and my wife is 40 weeks pregnant and we are currently being evicted due to having pet waste on the patio. We would clean our patio daily. Any laws or rights that can protect us to avoid this eviction?
  • I signed a lease for 13 months. I was told there would be a cap of 60.00 for water. If I used less than that I paid for what I used. If I used 70.00 worth I would only pay 60.00. My water bill for 9 months has been approximately 15.00. I found out on 1/2/15 that I will be charged a standard amount of 80.00 a month because I have 2 bathrooms. Is this legal?
  • My neighbor is building a porch onto his house, of which his house is already close to the property line, and having the additional balcony he will be close to the fence. He said he'll have someone to come look at it so it is 'up to code' (he is aware it has to be so far away from the property line/fence). Is there any way we can get ahold of the inspection results? Or can we petition to have him stop building the porch? He will be so close to (and a good amount above) the fence, that they will see more of our yard than his own.
  • Can a landlord refuse to allow a tenant (single parent) to add a minor child to the lease?
  • Hi, I am a graduate student who just completed my PhD in Neuroscience. I recently received my first ever speeding ticket in Arizona for excessive speeding. It is called a criminal speeding ticket. I have an otherwise clean driving record. The speeding ticket was issued at a moment of non focus and I was not consistently driving at the high speed. I cannot afford to hire a lawyer and am worried about a conviction. Also, I live out of state and am applying for permanent residency. Can you adivse me about pleading guilty to such a charge or help with hiring an attorney.
