Maricopa County Regional Homeless Court Profile

MCRHC's goal is to resolve outstanding minor misdemeanor, victimless offenses and warrants for homeless individuals who demonstrate commitment to end their homelessness. MCRHC combines punishment with treatment and services in rigorous supervised rehabilitation programs which typically exceed the sentencing requirements of similarly convicted defendants adjudicated in the normal court process.

QUESTIONS

  • I recently found out I am paying for the electric in the laundry room that everyone else uses. Is this considered a breach in contract, if I pay my own utilities. The realty company said they will take $25 off the rent each month or to move out, is this violating my rights as a tenant?
  • My tub had a crack in it and was reported in or around 4/21. The main bathroom was demolished wall and floor exposed... it is now 7/30 and we have not had a place to shower or take a bath...many excuses about maintenance man calling off work or having other jobs to do. We now have roaches because of exposed bathroom floor and cool air is escaping making my bill higher than it should be...I was threatened with eviction if I didn’t pay rent.. please help I don’t really no the laws..5 day 10 day 21 day notices.
  • I was evicted from my home that I own. Not the land. Was evicted because they said I had a unauthorized roommate and when I asked her to leave she called the police on me and said I pushed her. Both where lies. I haven't even been convicted of the crime. Now they say I can't sell my home unless I pay for lot fees that I owe them after the eviction. They refuse to take my money but then say I still have to pay lot fees. Can I sell my home and not pay these fees. She is telling buyers she can refuse to let them move in if I don't pay for the months I was not even living there.
  • Does a landlord or the designated property manager have a certain time to respond to repairs?
  • can a car dealership repossess my car and return my money because they feel they gave me more for my trade in than what it was worth?

  • My husband of 14 years abandon my daughter and I and moved out of state without warning. I am getting ready to file for divorce. My daughter, who is 13, states that she does not want to have any visitation with her father of any kind. She is willing to state that in court or in writing or whatever is required. She is determined to have no communication with her father. Is there an age where a child can make this decision for themselves? She is not fearful of him she just wants nothing to do with him since he abandon her.
  • I know the Navajo Nation is some what like the same as AZ laws so. What age does the child have to bee to decide which parents they want to live with?
  • I'm now in a nursing home and getting AHCCCS. I know my land has a lien because of this. I can't afford to pay for my property taxes. I also have some unpaid medical bills. My daughter only has power of attorney for legal matters. Can she file for bankruptcy for me? What are my options when I can't pay?
