QUESTIONS

  • In 2012-2013 my 80 year old grandmother sold everything she owns to move to Yuma, Az to live with her now husband. He has lived in Az for a few years. Now that he has depleted all of her money and she is ill he now wants to dump her off in a nursing home and move to Canada. What is your state laws on this? I believe if this is allowed to go on in the state of AZ this man will continue to do this to other seniors if he is allowed to get away with this. He has moved her across the country away from all family only to dump her at the state's expense so he can drive back and forth from Yuma to Canada as he pleases!

  • The mother of my 3 year old child was killed in a car accident recently. Paternity was established at the hospital when my child was born . Up until her death we worked out custody, child support and parenting time without having to go through the courts. She had unofficial "custody", because my child was with her when she died, CPS investigated and informs me that since it appears that mother was the custodial parent, that I need to establish custody through the courts. Can someone make sense of why I would need to establish custody, per CPS

  • I'm at the end of a two year lease. The landlord has a 20% rent increase if we don't do a new lease. Does he need to send us a written notice 30 days in advance that he intends to increase our rent 20% and the total amount that would make our new rent payment be? So far he has excepted the regular payment for two months passed the lease end date and now we just gave about a 50 day notice that we intend to move out.
