QUESTIONS

  • 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 my landlord sells the house, by law, what are my options?
  • Is a landlord/apartment manager allowed to put into a lease that any legal action against the complex is subject to additional fees? And, what is the maximum fee allowed for late charges on rent?
  • The property owner wants to charge me HOA fees for grounds maintenance. I am a tenant in an apartment complex. When questioned, they said they could do this according to Arizona General Provisions 33-1314 and 33-1314.01. I think this addresses utilities, water and separate meters, not HOA dues. I also will not have access to CC&R's, or be able to have a seat on the board or see the financials, because (in their words) I am not an owner. Can you let me know if they can in fact charge me HOA dues?
  • Can you file a motion for visitation without an attorney? My son was not married to his girlfriend they had a child they broke up and she has the child. She will not let my son see the child instead will take him to her parents and let him spend the weekend.
  • Can landlord charge early lease termination fee after I've been evicted? I had 1 month left on my lease before eviction, rent is cheaper than the early termination fee & apartment was rented about 3 weeks after I moved out.
  • I was told by the rental company that Arizona passed a new law that if a person has a protective order they can get out of their lease. Is this true?
  • what do I need to do to get a misdemeanor off my record from 25 years ago?
  • What ( if any ) court papers do I need to fill out if I wish to grant custody of my daughter to my mother if anything should happen to me? Or is a handwritten notarized paper sufficient enough?
  • My truck that i have drove for two years now was payed for on the spot for $1600 with income tax money from my grandmother and the rest pur of her pocket. Since then, out of my pocket i have put about $3000 into it myself. This income tax money my grandma had was from her claiming me(i was 17, im 19 now). My dad went and gave the man the money for the truck. My dad and i do not get along and he is mental (seriously). Now everytime he gets slightly irritated, he tries to take my truck and we get into it. The title has his name on it, but he is wrongly abusing. I'm so tired of this!Please help me?
