QUESTIONS

  • I am an Indian residing in Phoenix on work visa. I was assaulted by another Indian. I shifted to her house and just after 2 days she assaulted me on domestic matter, as she was the primary lease holder and my name was not on lease , i had to move out after she called the cope. I want to press charges against her.
  • M.H. owner & M.H. space renter of 19 yrs.. finally given :. agreement but don't follow AZ. laws. Sent a request to Landlord to bring lease up to fo;;ow M.H.P provisions but still no response back from him. They now are trying to evict for late rent payment they refused because I didn't include utility charges due to the unlawful ways of billing proof. I told them to first meet the request's of the lease and then it will be paid. I had full rent $400.00. Utilities are separate from rent. Can they still refuse my rent payment for space? And what are my rights if lease is unlawful?
  • I appologize for the repeat question but I cannot find my reference number. My sister is currently serving a jail sentence and my nephew is staying with his father. There is no court order on custody parenting time etc. but since my sister has been in jail his father is hasn't allowed me visitation with him. I am an active part of his life where I would have him 1-2 nights a week while both of them were at work and for the past month I haven't been able to see him or speak to him. His father has blocked my number so I cannot even check on his well being.
  • If a parent internationally kidnapped a child and then was determined to have a mental disorder after the child was recovered is that enough for termination? That along with no contact for over 3 years.
  • My Park charged me a $5 per day late fee on unpaid late fees. Is this legal in Arizona? The park applies any payment made to the amount due, thus guaranteeing that any payment made that is less than the entire amount owed will be subject to late fees for the entire time additional money is owed. I believe there are laws preventing that practice for mortgages but I'm unsure about rentals or leases. Shouldn't payments first be applied toward the monthly rent or lease and then any additional payment be applied to late fees? And isn't it illegal to charge interest or fees on late fees?
  • How can I evict the party who has purchased my home,foreclosed and have not left the premises? What is the process?
  • Hello I have allowed my friend to move in on a temporary basis while she locates permanent housing without accepting rent. I am the legal owner of the home, no signed rental agreeement but verbally and through text initially agreed to 3 month minimum time. Can I evict sooner if so how? What are my rights as the owner.
  • One of my friends is 17 (18 in less than a month) and is graduating. She used to live with her mother in Georgia, and was promised a better life, but when she came out here, her father forced her to watch her little sister and brother. Her brother is autistic, and she can't keep watching him. Is there any way she can get out of this legally? Her schooling and her career are both suffering.
  • What is the first step I would take to have my husband adopt my first child? What if the father is unknown and not on the birth certificate?
  • I want to know if I change my name back to my birth name, if I can still use both names. i.e. Birth Name changed from Ernest (info removed), I want to continue using both names. i.e. My current legal name is Merrick (info removed)
