QUESTIONS

  • We have custody of two of our neices and feel that we should adopt them. We had them for a year and helped the mother get off drugs and returned them to her for a time. We found them in a hotel with her and older man and another girl. The adults were high and the little girls were filthy dirty and asleep. We brought them home and have had them again for 4 months. They are 4 and 3. We feel that we should adopt them and raise them. What do we do to accomplish this?

  • I listed my granddaughter as 18 month old. No fence or gate was around the pool from back doors of home, as required by permit under AZ Law. The lessor had a real estate agent as did we. The lease was broken, accepted by the lessor. The lessor does not want to refund $3,900.00 security deposit. The exterior fence from driveway also was not self closing either and we have pictures of both. Did the lessor break the AZ law by entering into a legal contract and not have a Permitted, Inspected fence and self closing gate around the pool, Knowing an 18 month old be occupying the leased home?

Is there compensation for me as a caregiver through her health benefit plan, medicare or some other avenue. I am glad to be her caregiver but it has put a strain on us financially. Thank you.
  • I signed a lease with a husband and wife to rent my mobile home in a 55 and up Resort. They are supposed to rent for January February and March 2017. They told me it was only going to be the two of them. Afterwards Once the lease was signed they stated they were going to have their sister in there for 2 weeks, then they were going to have another couple in there for 10 days, and then another visitor that was staying for a so-called long weekend. I do not have anything in my lease regarding visitors, but they it was only going to be the two of them. Can I keep the deposit if they break lease
  • I gave notice in May to move during August (lease ending July 31). The landlord says I have to wait to get the amount they're going to charge me. They have a habit of delivering information the day before it's due. How long do I have to give them to get me this information?
  • I was evicted I still have belongings in the residence and my landlord refused to return . When does the 21 days my landlord must keep my property begin. Is it the day I went to court or when the constable licks you out?
