QUESTIONS

  • We are having a baby and want to know as the father if I can use my sick leave? I know I have 40hrs sick family but only 40hrs a year but have more personal sick leave that i would like to use.
  • Let me try this question again. I have been granted a new trial. I do not need to know how to motion for a new trial. At the new trial, how does it go? Will the testimony be the same or can victims and witnesses change testimony? Is a new trial just a rehash of the same testimony with a new jury? Thank you!
  • What if I'm not covered under FMLA at my work and I need to leave to give birth. How much time can I have off and can I still keep my job?
  • My father passed away before he could make me the beneficiary of his Arizona State Retirement. His wish was to ensure that this was done and was verbal regarding the issue. Do I have any recourse as his child and next of kin to have it switched to me as beneficiary? Thanks
  • How long do family members need to wait to be allowed copies of a Will? Do family members get notices?
  • Guardianship of 2 minors not related to myself or my fiancé.. we have two children that have been willingly given to us by there father and we would like to get temporary custody for them so we have time to start the full adoption papers... Both parents are iagreeable with us taking them but some of there other family isint happy about it. We are not requesting any money or anything from parents. What is the quickest and simplest way to file something so they can't take them away from us (the family, not parents).
  • If my boyfriend and I were staying with my mom and he left out of town for 4 months and we broke up because of this, and now he's back and saying if I don't allow him in my mothers house he will call the cops, he is saying I stole his stuff and he has the rights to check. Since he didn'tsign a lease with my mom but had mail sent here does he have rights?
  • My landlord turned off the heat to the entire apt complex a week ago, and stated that it can't be turned back on. It is reasonable to presume that without heat, the temperature inside the residing units will be comparable to outside. I tried to submit, in writing, a letter requesting that by purchasing an adequate heater to heat my unit during this time, I may apply the amount spent on the heater, with proof of receipt, to be deducted from my rent for the month of March, 2015. I cited 33-1324 and 33-1364 in the letter. The landlord denied the request. How enforceable is my principle?
  • My ex husband and I filed joint custody over our daughter. he was to pay the joint custody fee but as of yet hasn't. it's been about 8 months now. can he still pay it? What happens does one parent have more rights over the other? can I get full custody and he have visitation? help please!
  • What steps must be taken to obtain a Judicial Determination of Heirs in Arizona?
