QUESTIONS

  • How do I go about renewing my Order of Protection if there haven't been any new incidents of domestic violence?
  • My daughter's biological father passed away 6 months after she was born. My husband of 4 years and I are expecting a child and he'd like to legally adopt my daughter and change her last name from my maiden name to my married name. What's required for this process? Are their forms for it? Thank you!
  • My divorce and custody order was done in Arizona. My ex husband and I both moved out of state over a year ago. Is our court order from Arizona still valid or do we need to go back to court? Thank you for your help!
  • When does a foreclosure come off a credit report? Seven years from the date the loan went into foreclosure, from the date of last payment or from the date of the sale at auction?
  • My brother lives in West Virginia and he is suffering from dementia. He has no one who can assist him in West Virginia. I need to find an attorney in Arizona who can help me become his guardian. Recently he went to an attorney in WV to make out a will; however, he could not pass the competency test. He answered only one question--his name.
  • As a landlord, we only have a verbal lease agreement with our tenants. We are taking them to court for eviction for not paying rent. Our "plaintiff's checklist" lists a copy of the lease, which we don't have. Will our verbal lease agreement be an issue?
  • I got a harassment injunction against someone in February 2018, they violated it and are being prosecuted today Oct 2018. They were threatening before, but now they are extremely angry. I am trying to break my lease becasue I dont feel safe with this person knowing where I live and my apt landlord says my injunction/ PO is too old and because it wasn't domestic violence, it doesn't count. This person has threatened me and is obviously being punished by law, what can I do? What AZ statutes if any allow me to break my lease due to my situation?
  • are wills in Arizona required to be recorded /registered, and are they open to the public? 
  • My year long lease expires July 31. I received my lease renewal letter on July 22 (letter dated July 18) advising me that the monthly rental amount will increase by $75 effective August 1! How much notice must be given for such a large (or any) increase and when would the increase go into effect?
  • How can I request a paternity test for a child I have been ordered to pay support on? Unfortunately I did not seek legal counsel when I received the initial papers and wrote my response stating I did not believe I was the father. I did not pay the filing fee of $231 so they denied my statement. Where do I go from here? I live out of state.
