  • how do i apply online
  • My friend and her boyfriend are renting a 2 apartment, and both signed the lease. The can afford it alone. If move in, can I pay them or do have to sign the lease as well?
  • Do you have to have a legal advisor to file a motion for a new trial?
  • I have had 50/50 shared everything (court ordered) with my ex for 6 years . He just moved to Florida with only a week and a half notice leaving our daughter with me. Nothing was filed when he left. Can I file that he abandoned our child and seek full custody? what would be the first step?
  • If I text and tell my landlord that I'm moving out on a certain day and don't even though my lease Isent up until Sept. Could she take me to court and have me removed because of the text or is the text hearsay
  • I'm sepporated from ex. She moved to Florida with the children. She was told by the court she would have to pay to send the kids to NY. She recently said she will no longer send them unless I pay for them to come. Ive taken her to court for breaking the court order before. Nothing seems to work. She also never lets me speak to the kids on the phone and now its been about 6mths since Ive spoken to them. Im tired of fighting. If I give up my rights as there parent do I still have to pay child support. She no longer wants me in their lives just wants me to pay child support.
  • My girlfriend and I have two children together. I would like to gain custody of them since she has been experiencing mental health issues and cannot take care of the children.  I cannot afford a lawyer and have been told I cannot leave the state without her permission and was also told since the children's birth certificates establish I am the father and that they have my last name I can relocate with them. I can't get a straight answer !
  • If I want to sign away my rights to my children so that they can be adopted by their stepfather,what steps do I need to take? How do I petition the court, or am I able to even do this?
  • Our landlord refuses to fix our swamp cooler and the resulting problems. The swamp cooler leaks water, which has damaged the roof so that it leaks in our bedroom & closet for the last 3 years. This year it blew a fuse, so the landlord is using OUR extention cord for power. Now, whenever the cooler is turned on, the faucets and metal parts of our toilet/sink are electrified. We would like to file the 10 day repair notice but can't afford to move out. Can we file for damages while still living in the apt? Are we allowed to stay until the case is over?
