QUESTIONS

  • How can I start to get childsupport for my child
  • We bought our trailer in 1992 and have lived here since, our park has changed owners over the years, but now we are being informed that the new owners will be taking away the cable, and charging us for garbage pick-up which has always been included in the space rent along with sewer. We were just informed about the garbage pick-up today 10-9-2018 and as of 1-1-2019 we will be charged for garbage pick-up. Is this legal?
  • I was never married to my sons biological father who happens to be an illegal immigrant. Paternity and child support have been established by the court and I have sole legal custody. The Order states that father is not to pick up child from daycare. How do I enforce this?
  • My girlfriend is due any day now. She has been doing drugs throughout the pregnancy and trying to put the baby up for adoption. I am the father and am out of work and don't have a stable place to live. If both my girlfriend and I agree can I sign the baby over to my mom and will Cps still get involved if we do so. She just signed an adoption plan so would my mom still be able to take the baby home. I am against the adoption.
  • i have two questions.. I am 22 and live with my parents and am applying for food stamps and cash assistance do I include them on my application? What are the amounts of benefits I can expect to receive if approved?
  • My mom put her RV on consignment in Yuma. She passed away so now I have the RV. I recently accepted an offer last July 16th. The RV place held the money while I got a Washington title. I sent them a copy of title on Aug. 17 and told them I needed the money first, then I will sign over title. They received my letter on Aug. 21,called me that day and cancelled the deal and gave the money back. There is more to this situation. Is this legal? Did they have the right to cancel this deal without letting me know? They refused to give me the money until the title was complete.
  • The law provides that if my landlord does not return my deposit less deductions within 14 working days they are liable for damages of twice the amount of the deposit. Does that prevent the landlord from having any deductions at all?
  • As owner of mobile park, my property manager failed to bill residents their monthly rents last July 2016. Can I still bill that far back?
  • I moved into an apartment 4 years ago with carpet flooring. I have always been allergic to carpet. Now I want the complex to change the carpet to vinyl flooring planks. Are they required do to ADA and pay for it? They say if I want new flooring, I must pay for it.
  • Since July we have had a scorpion problem. We have continuously notified the office by letter each time we find a scorpion, we have even brought some into the office. The manager agreed to let us break our lease without payment on our behalf with a 30 day notice. 5 days after the agreement was made that manager had been let go and a new manager took over who had no idea about the agreement. Now they are saying the old manager did not take the proper steps to let us break our lease and refuses now to let us leave. We have 3 children under 8,I am pregnant and my husband was stung. What now?
