QUESTIONS

  • I have a roommate that is threatening to sue me. If he does, what can I do to protect myself as I am already having financial difficulties?
  • Regarding Bankruptcy: How long does it take to file, can you see a lawyer one day and file the next? Do your credit cards need to be delinquent to file BK or can they be current? Can they take my 401K if I file BK? How long will BK put off a Trustee sale? If your mortgage is delinquent can you still file BK to try to put off the trustee sale? If you have 2 accounts with one credit company like Discover and one is joint with someone else and one is only in your name, can you just file BK on the one in your name only without them going after the other card with joint owner? Thank you
  • My mother had quad bypass surgery 10/07. Upon coming home from the hospital we needed a caregiver to help my mom take her meds go to the bathroom , feed herself , bathe herself etc. After 90 days my mothers LTC kicked in. We filed a claim with Humana , which is the provider that administers her medicare , on 04/20/07. We called a couple of weeks later and were told it takes 30 days to process. We then called the end of May and were told they have it but to wait another 30 days. We called at the end of June and were now told it was in the wrong dept but it would now be expedited. I called mid July spoke to a "manager " Joe Clark who said it was still in the worng dept but he wopuld expedite it and call me back in 1-2 days. NO CALL 10 days later I call and speak to Stephanie, and she tells me her sup. will call me back NO CALL. i call 5 days later speak to Woodley , he tells me he has no idea about the delay but will rush it. I call at the end of July speak to yet another manager who tells me they "changed" vendors and need me to refax the entire claim. She asks me what the claim is about I tell her and she tells me that what I described to her is really more "housekeeping" work and not covered. KEEP IN MIND she hasn't even reviewed the claim. I am now approaching 4 months since we first submitted this and I am at wits end. What are my options to get this expedited one way or another
  • My grandparents live in a 55+ senior living community that adamantly refuses to allow even quiet, inside pets. My grandparents own their trailer. Do they, being the owners of their home, have the right to a quiet pet that lives exclusively indoors? If not, why?
  • Does the landlord have to provide a stove
  • i'm a 16 year old who recently moved to phoenix. my parents have been going through an ongoing horrible court case. my mother suffers from 9 mental illnesses and constantly emotionally abuses me and my 8 year old brother. as a result of the court case which started in nevada, we stay with our mother on the 1st, 2nd and 4th weekends of every month but it is absolutely unbearable. i was wondering if when i turn 18 i could adopt my brother even though our mother will never sign the papers. my brother is also adopted from birth.
  • I don't have any income and I asked to stay with a relative for a few days, now I am going to the men's mission shelter. Can I still qualify for cash and food stamp assistance?
  • My renter has been doing all sorts of antagonistic things towards me for about two months now - like waking me purposely very early in the morning (as early as 5 am). I've asked her to stop and she won't. Can I legally do anything about this - she is moving out but not soon enough. It is affecting my health because of sleep deprivation and stress (I have chronic fatigue).
  • How can I get my car back from a person who helped me by putting it in their name and now will not give it back?
  • I haven’t written my landlord about my A/C not working, however, I called him. It’s going on 9 days now that it hasn’t been fixed. Is there a way I don’t have to pay full rent?
