QUESTIONS

  • My mother lives in Phoenix and has Title 14 Guardianship of our 6 year old nephew. She wants to transfer it to us in Texas. The child's mother agrees with the plan and will give consent. I believe ARS 8-874 applies here. Where do we find the paperwork to motion for appointment of a successor and affidavit (assuming this is the correct path to take).
  • I recognize that AZ restrictions raised legal age to buy tobacco to 21 but does this include pipes and water pipes?
  • Can a landlord dictate where a child sleeps? Saying a child over 2 “needs” their own bedroom. Not only is this nickel and diming parents to pay the extra rent for more rooms it feels extremely discriminating and invasive of parental rights. Telling me where my child can and can’t sleep, basically not allowing bedsharing or trying to get families with kids to move elsewhere cause they can’t afford adding another bedroom to their budget.
  • I had to evict my tenant and filed a Summons,served her and she finally moved after 7 days. She has refused to pay me what is owed. How do I collect the money owed?
  • If I am moving out of home that I am renting and there are damages made on my behalf, Can I repair on my own before I move out or does the landlord have the right to do repairs themselves and charge me?
  • my home was auctioned in a forclosue on 02/28/14....I am now being evicted by monday.....where is the 70000 equity in my home ?
  • My sister died in April leaving her estate to 2 foster children. Her personal representative quit in May and no one has assumed control of the estate and he has not turned it over to anyone. I fear the home will go into foreclosure. I would like to have a private fiduciary take over, what do I have to do to make that happen? The foster children are listed as her only heirs, my brothers are furious, can they prevent a private fiduciary from assuming control and force the foreclosure and loss of her estate? I don't have funds to hire a lawyer, how can I get this accomplished?
  • Through my divorce my ex new how to take advantage of my situation which was my drug abuse issue she her attorney and the judge knew I was high on heroin and meth through the whole divorce I did lie when asked at court if I was high but everyone knew it. I am now clean 85 days and realized how bad I have been taken advance of . All my money my belongings were taken by her as she had an order of protection she had a high dollar attorney and got screwed. Az law states if I were under the influence then the divorce is not valid is this true??!
  • I owe $35,000.00 on a 2000 motorhome I can't make payments anymore as I don't have the means. I tried to surrender it, but was told to try to sell it myself, I have a buyer, willing to pay $20,000 for it.But I need the title for it before the buyer gives me the money. the creditor is not willing to send me the title yet. what can I do? this is better for the creditor, because they don't have to come get it themselves.
