QUESTIONS

  • Hello! Back in 2000 my vehicle was repossed, this loan showed up on my credit report until 2006.I have checked my credit report every year after that and this account is no longer showing up. Just recently I recieved a phone call from a collection agency regarding this account. Are they allowed to do this? Do they have the right to after 3 years of this account falling off my credit report to start reporting it again? Thank You
  • My wife is threatning me to move out of state with my 3 yr old daughter. We don't live together now but I am still a legal guardian and the father on the birth certificate. What should I do to keep her from taking my child.
  • Do I have legal grounds to request that I don't pay my last month's rent at my apartment because of the state of the AC? My AC started leaking so bad that I had to remove the cover from the ceiling, which had been so rusted, that it was dripping out of the rust holes. I found that the condensation pan has a tear that was patched with caulking and it's not even aligned properly! It's an inch thick of rust and it looks as if the air filter has never been changed, so that is why it froze and is now leaking.
  • After being kicked out, how much time do I have to go back and get my belongings before the landlord can take legal possession of them?
  • My wife recently seperated with our unborn child, and i have to get an essesment done before i can be at the birth of our child, which is very soon, If i am not there or even if i am, what rights does she have to name our our child
  • I plead guilty and paid a fine for a class 2 watercraft incident. The Magistrate has granted the set aside entailing "that defendant be released from all penalties and disabilities pursuant to A.R.S. 13-907". Do I need to disclose my misdemeanor for graduate school applications and even future employers even though it has been set aside for judgement?
  • Does it matter which of the court locations I submit a forcible detainer too? The house is in Chandler, but I live in Scottsdale. Can I collect a special daily fee on the eviction notice that is not on the lease agreement? How is the tenant served the complaint? Is the landlord responsible for that?
