QUESTIONS

  • I am a single mother(one child) and living on a Teacher's salary. I have a mortgage and a considerable amount of credit debt, plus student loans. I can make my house payment but am struggling to make any of the credit payments. Question is: Can I file Bankruptcy ( ch7) and keep my house. None of the debt was secured with my home.
  • Six months into a twelve month lease my landlord sold the property. Now the new landlord is telling me that I must sign a new lease. Although she is not raising our rent, other provisions of the new lease are objectionable to me. Must I sign this new lease to preserve my status as a legal tenant, or must the new landlord accept the terms of my original lease?
  • I own a mobile home in a 55+ community. I currently have no income and can not afford to pay the lot rent. Can my daughter age 22 and friend age 20 move in and live there without me being there? Otherwise I lose everything and that is presently what is happening. I have tried selling but the park says that the person wanting to buy must fill out the background check in front of them, so those interested have not been able to buy due to the fact that most are out of state. I need help NOW, as I have to leave very soon and my daughter needs an affordable place to live.
  • How do I get proction for my grandchilden when my son girl freind can provide a home for them. Son is in jail. we have guardianship of there first child do to drug abuse by monther. She is now living with a cousin and her family along with her sister and there family in one home.
  • Emergency Removal of occupant by lease holder or tenant?
  • Can you get assistance if you quit your job?
  • Can one ask for a court-appointed attorney when charged with DUI, and how would one do that, if so?
  • I am going through an eviction brought on by a foreclosure of my property. The writ of restitution is being sent today to the process server as the attornys handling the eviction are in Maricopa county. My question is this; will the paperwork be filed on Tuesday next as this is a holiday week-end or can the process server actually file the writ on a Saturday? I am just trying to see how much time I have as I am in the process of vacating anyway.
  • is the owner and employees of the park allowed to come on my lot at any point without my permission? I feel like I"m being targeted for unknown reasons as I"ve had someone come on my lot several times and we have caught them and they pretended they were "cutting" through to the other side.
  • My neighbor is building a porch onto his house, of which his house is already close to the property line, and having the additional balcony he will be close to the fence. He said he'll have someone to come look at it so it is 'up to code' (he is aware it has to be so far away from the property line/fence). Is there any way we can get ahold of the inspection results? Or can we petition to have him stop building the porch? He will be so close to (and a good amount above) the fence, that they will see more of our yard than his own.
