QUESTIONS

  • We terminated our lease early. We gave them notice in writing. They have continued to stall getting the house rented to someone else. It was ready to be moved into at the first of the month and they won't even let a new tenant look at it until the 10th. I read that according to Ariz rev stat 33-1370 that a "landlord has a duty to find a new tenant". I'm having a problem finding that actual wording in the law. We are on the hook for rent until a new renter is found, but it seems they are preventing that.
  • My brother who is 36 needs to enter rehab for alcoholism. He spoke w/his supervisor & she supports him. She contacted the District Mgr. & was told my brother has to quit his job if he wants to enter rehab. Isn't that against the law?
  • My Daughter just got married at 16 years but is still in school, do I still have to pay child support until she is 18 years
  • My son was separated from his wife when she got pregnant by another man. They are back together and he is not on the birth cert. If they divorce is he responsible financially down the line
  • I am currently receiving Nutrition Assitance but my husband just recently started receving unemployment, do i need to call and report the he is now on unemployment?
  • what number can i call to get my case number instead of going to the des office??
  • Someone set my apartment door on fire when I wasn't at home, so I made a police report and told the apartment manager. She informed me that I am responible for paying for the door even though I wasn't the one set it on fire. Can they make me pay for the door even though I wasn't there and didn't do it?
  • I was wondering if my ex was allowed to ask me to pay child support from the day our child was born even though we were together until he was 4? Because my credit is reporting that I have not been paying my child support and it automatically comes out of my paycheck every time. I called the courts and they are saying it is because of back child support even though I have never missed a payment, now they are taking my taxes, so the money I am supposed to get back for my son with my current wife is going to pay my "back child support" What can I do??
  • My husband has had 2 work related injuries where he suffered concussions, traumatic brain injuries & frontal lobe brain injury. Over time, his personality is changing for the worse & he's constantly verbally abusining me & my daughter & he completely loses his temper over nothing. Now he's threatening to open a new account for his SSD income & for the work comp annuity which is the majority of our income. He says he wants a divorce & is going to get an apartment & he's going to stop making the house payments. I know this is due to his TBI but what can we do to protect ourselves?
  • My landlord has a primary person that lives in the community that acts as the landlord and basically handles everything including maintenance. Meaning, he is the one making all repairs. He is creepy, hangs out and thinkers with repairs, he is not certified and shabby workmanship and shows up knocking at my door to hand out information rather than mailing. I am a single female living alone and I really don't won't him coming over whenever he wants to. Is his behavior legal, I have told him not to show up knocking and have informed him the next time I will call the police but he continues.
