QUESTIONS

  • I have a step son who’s 18 yo and will be 19 in a month who recently just had a baby. My question is this, he recently received a paternity court summons and in the summons it says he has 20 days to respond. Needless to say he hasn’t responded and he’s just ignoring the summons. What will happen if he continues to ignore this summons? It’s already passed the 20 day window.

  • I'm on the board of my HOA and one of our new members is performing tasks around the property that are not authorized. He's even contact the City of Mesa police to have a vehicle ticketed on the property. When attempted to discuss the issue with the board member he became VERY hostile by verbal comments and threats. What actions do we as a board need to take in order to remove him? And is there any legal recourse that we need to abide by?
  • I am currently 5 months pregnant and the baby's father hasn't really been involved at all. He's leaving for a couple of months (for some job) and won't be back until after the baby is born so he will definitely miss the birth. If he's not there to sign the birth certificate do I have to list him as the father on the certificate? Can I leave his name out and just put mine. He's not interested in being a part of the baby's life so is there any way I can get sole custody?
  • Please tell me if weekends and holidays count in the 48 hours mandatory release if no complaint is filed.
