QUESTIONS

  • We rented from a complex in Phoenix with a 13 month lease. We gave a 30 day notice and broke our lease after 6 months for my wife to take a job in PA. The lease states that we are responsible for the entire amount due UNTIL the apt is rented. That amounts to $11,000! It is now in collections, so I called to see if the apt. has been rented yet. I was not told if it has been, but the mgr. said it does not matter because we are still responsible for ALL of the rent, since we did not pay it all when we moved out. . Can they charge us for rent on an apt that is being rented? If so--RIDICULOUS
  • My son got custody of his two boys about three years ago before that we had them for a year. There mom just left. If I want to be the guardian in case something happened to my son. Would there mom have a say so on this. She doesn't do anything for them. She is not allowed to see them. If she does see them her mom has to be there. Which is maybe once every two three months.
  • When I was terminated by my employer, i was given the option to voluntarily resign and get a good reference from them, or to be fired with no reference. In retrospect i believe that this was an attempt to preclude my being able to claim unemployment. Is it legal for an employer to present these as the only two options for an employee?
  • We have a serious mold problem. Everyone in the house is sick all the time. It is from the leaks in the roof which have been fixed over and over by the maintenance men. Is this negligence on the landlords part and can we sue for damages?
  • When things became rocky in my relationship with the mother of my 10 month old son, i filed in court for custody/parenting time. Around 1 week after she was served my now ex girlfriend took the child and moved to flagstaff from phoenix. is she allowed to do this without giving me 60 days notice?
  • My husband and I have been married for 19 years. Common Law for 4 years and 14 years Legally Married (State of NM). We have been separated for 3 months, if I decided to divorce my husband my reason is "Adultery". We have a State Marriage Licence and we married in Navajo Nation Court. Do I file with the State of New Mexico or Navajo Nation. We have 2 children therefore child support will be filed. And can I charge my husband and his companion with "Adultery"?
  • If in the divorce decree it states a minimum of 2 weekends a month am I able to ask for an additional weekend to be added each month? Is the custodial parent entitled to have the other 2 weekends that my child is not with me if I request that third weekend?
  • How are child custody cases handled on the Navajo Reservation?
  • I slipped and fell into someone when shopping at a store, at the time the person I fell into made a big deal out of it, the police were called I explained to them what happened and I was not cited now 2 months later the state picks it up and I have to go to court, can they do this and can I sue the store for slipping and falling into this person?
  • My 91 year-old father has recently been admitted to an Altzheimer's long term care facility. My stepsister, his ex-wife and a fiduciary have healthcare Power of Attorney. The fiduciary is private and only acts as a substitute. I have no access to his medical records. I live in CA & cannot take charge of his care. He's medicated and sleepy all the time. How can I get access to his medical records without becoming responsible for his care from another state? My stepsister is not cooperative and has even threatened my visits with my father. The fiduciary interceded on my behalf. His ex-wife has taken all his assets.
