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

  • My girlfriend got pregnant and I assumed I was the father. When she was born I signed the aknowledgment of paternity at the hospital. After four months my daughter was very dark and she looked mexican which I am not. I did a dna test and it turns out I am not the biological father. I am on the birth certificate. I need to file a challenge to the paternity and need to know what forms I need to file with the court

I have no involvement in that life anymore but now because im on probation(almost done),& have a prior felony (not same charge) im looking at prison time. Their possession of dangerous drugs, intent to sell, paraphernalia and one more drug related charge i cant remember. Please help me.

  • Am I required to mail my rent each month out of state if my landlord lives out of town? If no additional guest policy is referenced in my rental agreement do I have to get permission for every overnight guest? My parents watched our child for a weekend while we were out of town. It seems unreasonable to require permission in this case.
  • We are filing for divorce and Imake $15,000 a year whereas he makes $32, 000. He is trying to get over $600 in child support payments for 2 children one who is under 12 and the other who is 15. Does the payment go according to my income?
  • I recently went to court and got my case kicked out for the reason i sent the 5 day notice via certified mail and didn't wait 10 days to file a forcible detainer?... i waited 7 days?. the judge said it is 5 days for serving it by hand but 10 if it is done certified mail? is this right? thanks
  • I am the legal guardian of my two grandsons. Their mother (my daughter) is in prison. The father refuses to accept any responsibility saying they are not his children, even though he was married to my daughter when all three of the children were born. The Court has ordered him to have paternity testing, but he has refused to do so. I am 52 years old and need help supporting these children. Since their father refuses, and their mother is in prison, can I adopt these children and get any kind of aid for them?
  • I filed for a order of protection 2/18 & defendant filed to drop it (heating 3/4). Judge said there were 2 violations since OP was granted but since I replied to his saying he was sorry to hear about the death of my 23 yr. old cat (no law says I can't contact him!) he/Judge said he's only guilty of one violation ...yet he firmly told defendant to leave me alone & granted his request to dismiss the Order of Protection. What can I do about this injustice? By the way we are a bit racial couple
  • my landlord wants me out but hasnt served no papers what do i do
