QUESTIONS

  • I am a grandparent I have paid for everything for granddaughter since the day she was born now my daughter says I have never done anything for her and says that I'm not her grandmother what court papers do I need to file to get visitation with my granddaughter
  • Does a mother have sole custody of a child if you have a child out of wedlock and there is no court order in place?
  • We have been renting a condo for 5.5 years and now are moving out. We have heard that no one gets their deposits back. Our biggest concern is the carpet, since it's degraded since we've been here. Is "normal wear and tear" at all a consideration? Is there an algorithm or guide on what they should do. We have an $1100 deposit and can't afford to lose it.
  • I had a tranny shop fix my transmission and they put a warranty on it. After paying I drove the car two blocks and it drives the same as when I brought it in? rights?
  • We received a tro from district court on our foreclosure it was mysteriously remanded to state court then dismissed by state court we are under appeal to 9th circuit. It turns out opposing counsel clerked for judge at the AZ supreme court and US court of appeals for the ninth circuit. Neither the judge or opposing counsel disclosed there past relationship! Is this not a conflict of interest? Is the judge not required to disclose there past relationship? Is the lawyer not required to disclose there past relationship? Is it of any use in a dismissal?
  • I am a homeowner, temporarily living and working out of state and have allowed a family member to live there rent free. She is taking over the utilities, I continue to pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance. She also will take care of maintenance and her own personal desired improvements, with permission, at her expense. My question is, does this relationship put me in a position of being a landlord, which I do not want to be, or am I a non-resident homeowner? Can you point me to state law and statutes on this subject?
  • My brother and his ex girlfriend are unfit parents. They try to avoid responsibility at all costs when it comes to my nephew. Is there any way that I can request custody of my nephew to provide him stability and the attention he needs?
  • I was awareded sole custody, my children are out of state with their father for visitation and he is refusing to return them. What actions should I take? Can I call the police where he lives or am I allowed to go pick them up if I'm able to travel?
  • Hey I live on a small lot and have animals. My dad gave me permission to use the land. I have ten chickens, two ducks, five pigeons, and a pheasant. We have been fighting a lot and he threatens to kill all of the animals, which I have bought or have been given to me. He says that I don't take care of them enough, which I will admit Im not the best at but they have food and water all the time and I do my best. But he threatens to take them from me and kill them every time, which is every time he starts to drink. I don't know if he can because its his land or if he can't take them from me.
  • My landlord is refusing to accept my rent payment. Her "agents" (son and Daughter in Law) have given me until the end of the month to move by verbal notice and are indicating they intend to "lock me out" on th 1st of March. They have altered the rental agreement but not in writing. What remedy might I have should I come home to find the locks changed? I have reviewed the LTA and do not see anything regarding refusing to accept the rent payment. I am aware that written notice to vacate must be given. I am not refusing or unable to pay the rent as required.
